    How upside down can we get?

    Feds limit Ariz. sheriff's crackdown on illegal immigrants

    Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he will continue his controversial "crime suppression operations" despite a Department of Homeland Security decision to strip him of authority to arrest suspected illegal immigrants based solely on their immigration status, the East Valley Tribune reports.

    “It’s all politics,” says Arpaio, sheriff of Maricopa County.

    Arpaio will still have the power to check the immigration status of people booked by his officers, but not the authority to conduct street patrols looking for illegal immigrants.

    His “crime suppression operations” are saturation patrols in designated areas where deputies would find illegal immigrants by stopping them for traffic infractions and minor violations, the paper says.

    The Department of Justice and other federal agencies are investigating the sheriff’s office on accusations of racial profiling during the operations, the paper says.

    Arpaio said he will be able to still conduct the crime sweeps under state human smuggling laws and an obscure federal law that allows local police to arrest illegal immigrants.

    A spokesman for the Phoenix office of ICE declined to comment until after pending agreements with the country are signed.

    Sheriff Arpaio is a "elected" offical of the people of Az. He can tell the Feds to go jump in a lake!

    Its to bad the Feds don't try and clean up their own house before that attack someone who is DOING HIS DUTY

    A elected County Sheriff has more athority then any Federal or State agent that comes into his territory, even the likes of AG Holder!

    The key word here is "Elected"

    GO Arpaio, hopefully he is training someone to take over when he leaves but it will be up to the People of AZ!

    The vote-buying begins.


    (Remember, these people become future "legals" under legislation to be passed in the coming year).

    Yep, I guess I was just confused about the meaning of illegal. As for the racial profiling, well I suppose you could call it that or it could be the simple fact that Sheriff Arpaio and his deputies have enough experience to identify these lawbreakers when they see them.

    Obama will need the illegals if he plans on getting re-elected.
    Sheriff Joe is making the Feds look bad because the Feds aren't doing their job & Joe is finding illegals all over the place. The people like their Sheriff, I wish there was more like him. Colonel

    Sheriff Joe says the sweeps will continue in an onsite interview, he said the people of Arizona have the right to know what the Government is and is not doing for them ... This could get interesting ... WPT ... (YAC) ... (Sheriff Joe Arpaio supporter, big time)

    By all accounts that I have heard, the people that pay Sheriff Arpaio are very pleased with the job he is doing. That alone should be a lesson to the federal government about the 'will of we the people'. Too bad we can't get a man like Sheriff Joe into the oval office.

    Certain powers may be reserved for the federal govt and that is the issue here.

    The US is made up of immigrants- unless you are a native american-

    Look out the window- we have many more problems than this to worry about

    We are 27th in science- 31st in Math- and 35th in literacy

    And- the new immigrants tend to bring those numbers up not down.

    Our mortality rate for infants is horrible

    Recent Immigrant families bring our test scores up- thats correct.

    If you doubt this- just survey a class of students at one of the better colleges or universities.

    Asian, and European immigrants might be bringing our test scores up. I would be surprised if illegals are part of the uptick.

    Gee Gene, I just don't believe you. If you were to be believed then the best test scores in the nation would be coming from East LA. I find that hard to believe. Here in Indiana the school districts with the worst scores come from areas of Indy, and NE Indiana (Chicago Land) that have large Hispanic immigrant populations. Can you please explain that.

    And the infant morality rates you sited, could they be skewed too? Other countries let their babies die (still born), so therfore they are never borned and are never counted. In this country we try and save those babies and if they are lost we count them. Some countries do not count baby births until they have actually survived 30 days, before they are counted. So if a baby dies 2 weeks after being delivered and dies, that countries statics have never even counted that child.

    OMG...!!! I don't know where you are, but around here...IF someone got the illegals OUT OF THE CLASSROOMS...our teachers would have more opportunities to help our LEGAL students get those scores UP. There are many excellent LEGAL immigrants doing great work in our universities...Those aren't the issue. LEGAL immigration has helped our country....what we're talking here is simply open border ( read: NO borders..)invasion.

    Damm funny that all of those illegal immigrants bust their hump to take advantage of our horrible infant mortality rate. Go here to read about our infant mortality rate. http://www.anncoulter.com/ Gene
