Ariz. sheriff: I’ll jail immigration protesters

Published: Wed, July 28, 2010 @ 9:18 a.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The sheriff of the most populous county in Arizona says he’s “not going to put up with any civil disobedience” when the state’s new immigration law takes effect.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says that if protesters want to block his jail, he’ll put them in it.

The Arizona law, which takes effect Thursday, requires officers enforcing other laws to check a person’s immigration status if they suspect the person is in the country illegally.

Arpaio told ABC’s “Good Morning America” he doesn’t know “what the big hype is.”

He says it’s “a crime to be here illegally and everyone should enforce” the law.

Lets see. The so called illegals were here in the Americas before the Mayflower or any other European conquerors even knew they existed. So Spain, England, and France in particular split up the booty and spread it out among their kind. They forced the indigenous peoples off the land or murdered them en masse. Then since they refused to work for free they imported so called Negroes to work the land and build the great empire we now enjoy today. The indigenous people are now told they are illegals in the land that was stolen from them....Hmmm.

Sheriff Joe is a great American hero. Doing what is right and performing the duties he has been elected to do. If all elected officials did what was right we wouldn't be in this ILLEGAL immigrant mess. What are we thinking? Oh I get it they want their votes. This is just another case of political correctness that is far from correct. YOU GO JOE.

No, we need more Sotomayers and Kagans to "feel" sorry for the "injustices" done and (how ironic) "Right" them-no, on second thought, to "Left" them. In fact anyone ashamed of our American past ought never to be elected, the more so if they are Ivy Leaguers, who are the point squad in the movement to contact with their enemy (the 47% who voted against the Dalai Bama PLUS the uncounted ones who didn't like either candidate).

The Roman Empire lasted from around 740 BC to about 450 AD. Our nation seems to have lasted from 1789 to 2008. In our day, we overthrew slavery in a bloody civil war and saved Europe's butt twice and Asia's nations from the Great East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. We rebuilt nations we helped destroy on the way to getting rid of tyrants. While we solely held nuclear weapons, we used them to end a horrible war against an enemy who's code of Bushido, neither accepted nor permitted surrender. While we would have used them if necessary, we looked for ways NOT to use them. When world wide disasters have struck, this "evil" America donated food and money to help out.

Match that record for greatness against some of the Socialist nations who adopted belligerent policies against their weak neighbors OR used our military might to protect them while they spent money on their own domestic programs.
They are only a shadow of what we were!

Anytime I hear "one world" philosphy being spouted from economists, historians, commerce "experts" and politicians, my blood boils. Such speakers remind me of another "American" who started out okay, but ended up wrong. Benedict Arnold died in London, 1801, despised by Americans the British he sold out to.
Will the current leaders of socialist countries "love" those who have torpedoed this nation?

All the darker skinned folks everywhere are grateful for the great Europeans, who come bearing disease, murder, and oh yea beads. Can't see how the world could make it without them. Again what was California and Texas before the invasion? Yea the Mexicans are mixed but I don't think they made a phone call to Europe asking to be conquered. These so called savages built great civilizations without any help from George Washington or his cousins. The Incas and Aztecs come to mind...I'm still waiting for an invite to the great west so that I can wait for the sound of the starter pistol and claim all that I can fence. Apartheid in America is alive and well..

I would encourage everyone to log on to Governor Jan's website and show support for her courage in standing up to protect the citizens of her state. Our southern border has always been a dangerous place but it is now a very deadly place to be and this danger is being allowed to harm our citizens with little concern shown by our President and Congress. This menace is coming our way very soon but our officials don't have the guts or the foresight to take action now.
Remember when the stores were first required to post signs in Spanish and English? Are you starting to get the picture as to why this requirement came about??
