    The Justice Department Has Had It with Sheriff Joe - Yahoo! News

    If the DOJ did their job by going after illegal aliens and businesses that hire illegal aliens they would not have to go after Joe. He could spend his time going after other criminals. Instead they have called off all deportation except convicted murderers and rapist. Joe is not doing anything that the Federal Immigraiton and Nationality Act does not allow him to do. If 90% of the traffic stops are latinos and are suspected of being illegal that is not racial profiling. DOJ take the work of illegals instead of law abiding americans.
    Arizona is a war zone and the military need to be in the state full force to stop drugs and drug related crime which affect americans.
    Sitting in the cushey Washington forts they have no idea what it is like for arizona.

    The DOJ and Obama have an ongoing vendetta against Arpaio cause he has done what THEY don't have the guts to do. Arrest those who enter the country illegally. It's as simple as one, two, three.

    Ginning up anger trying to motivate his voters to the polls. First blacks with the Trayvan Martin case, than women, homosexuals, now Hispanics. Pretty transparent and really desperate if you ask me.

    You should take that up with the head of the executive branch. You know, the one in charge of enforcing the laws and such, and to whom the DOJ answers.

    What is that guy's name? I forget ... :confused:

    This is coming from an administration that is concerned about a states view on pot and yet claims marriage is a state issue. No consistency.

    Arizona Sheriff Sued for Alleged Civil Rights Violations - Businessweek
    5-10-12

    Arizona’s Maricopa County and its sheriff, Joseph Arpaio, were sued by the U.S. Justice Department for discrimination against Latinos, prompting the sheriff to retort he’s the subject of an Obama administration election-year maneuver.

    The lawsuit, filed today in federal court in Phoenix, accuses the sheriff’s department of denying constitutional protections to Latino prisoners who have limited English language skills. The complaint also alleges the sheriff’s department has retaliated against perceived critics with “baseless criminal actions, unfounded civil lawsuits or meritless administrative actions.”

    The alleged discrimination “is the product of a culture of disregard for Latinos that starts at the top and pervades the organization,” the Justice Department said in a statement.

    Sheriff’s office jail employees frequently refer to Latinos as “wetbacks,” “Mexican bitches,” and “stupid Mexicans,” according to the complaint. Supervisors in immigration enforcement show anti-Latino bias, including sending around an e-mail of a Chihuahua dressed in swimming gear with a caption that read, “a rare photo of a Mexican Navy Seal,” according to the complaint.

    Arapaio, who has been elected five times and served 20 years in office, said President Barack Obama is going after him to court Latino voters.

    ‘Political’ Move

    “They know this is political and they know this has to do with the president of the United States,” he said today at a news conference in Phoenix.

    Arpaio called the timing of the case “highly suspect” in light of the coming presidential election, in which the Latino vote may play a critical role, and the Supreme Court’s consideration of Arizona’s immigration law, which was argued on April 25.

    “It is a national issue,” he said. “I am the poster boy. They are using me.”

    Justice Department representatives didn’t immediately return a call after regular business hours for comment on the sheriff’s allegations.

    The Justice Department said in December that the sheriff’s office discriminated against Latinos with unlawful stops, arrests and biased jail practices. An inquiry revealed “serious concerns” that Arpaio didn’t investigate crimes adequately or provide police protection to the Latino community, Justice Department officials said.

    Joe Popolizio, a lawyer for the sheriff’s office, said at a news conference in Phoenix that the Justice Department has refused to provide information to support its findings.

    ‘Factual Basis’

    “We have repeatedly asked for the factual basis of those findings,” he said.

    Popolizio said a lawsuit will require the Justice Department to share those records and name witnesses. The federal government’s requirement for a monitor to oversee the sheriff’s department would be “usurping the power of the sheriff,” Popolizio said.

    Joe Arpaio is reelected by overwhelming margins. Democrats have tried numerous times to get him recalled and every effort failed.

    Maricopa County is majority hispanic. If democrats think he's racist, obviously hispanics don't.

    The last trump card, rioting in the streets across the country and calling it protests.
