    And, to illustrate everything that I've been talking about concerning potential abuses of this law we have:

    Sheriff Joe Arpario, who has hired 400 deputies in a sort of permanent posse to search for and arrest Hispanics suspected of being illegal immigrants.

    Here's an interesting read on the Sheriff's other abuses:

    Maybe for his next trick he can shoot them dead on sight.

    Sounds like the people of Arizona are pretty darn bloodthirsty.

    Any proof to the media hysterics that this "posse" is or will be on a detain-arrest-and-deport mission?

    If Mexico can't or won't control the border we should annex it and install Sheriff Joe as their new El Presidente

    Where do you get this 400 figure from? And what is "sort of permanent"? Either they are permanent or they're not.

    I think you just make shit up as you go which means you are bordering on zero credibility.

    Who cares?

    I'll believe it: Now what's wrong with a sherrif deputizing anyone to enforce the law?

    From the Maricopa Sheriff's office home page:

    Maricopa County Sheriff's Office

    My information on the 400 new Deputies hired by the Sheriff's office tasked with enforcing illegal immigration comes directly from a first-hand source who is a resident of Maricopa county.

    He is my boss' son, and was just on the phone telling us about the situation this morning.

    Actually, in the interest of accuracy, I need to make a correction:

    The 400 people mentioned are the total number involved in the operation.

    Though the deputized "posse" members make up a significant part of that number.

    They are temporary personnel, but the Sheriff's office has conducted 14 operations to date, meaning they are not a one-time "posse", thus the "sort of permanent" comment.
