    Why is Obama administration suing an outspoken Arizona sheriff?
    :cuckoo:
    Some blame 287(g) for giving Arpaio and other local law enforcement agencies across the country the authority to go after illegal immigrants. The program, part of the Immigration and Nationality Act created in 1996, emerged from obscurity after the 9/11 attacks and later morphed into federal-local immigration enforcement whose goals prioritized the arrest and deportation of illegal immigrants charged with crimes.

    More than 70 local law enforcement agencies in 26 states are part of 287(g), which has recorded about 118,500 deportations, according to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Since 2007, 287(g) has allowed the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office to help identify and oust more than 26,000 people living in the United States illegally – the highest tally in the country. Second to Maricopa, Los Angeles County helped deport nearly 14,000 illegal immigrants.

    This reminds me of the Gestapo methods.

    Because the American people are finally really pushing to get something done about illegal aliens that are destroying America.

    And clearly the "American government" feels differently.

    The reality is nothing is being done. Border security is just a sham. 30 national guards in Arizona? Ice is releasing all those Arpaio is turning over to them. The economy did more than Obama did and ICE did. They are leaveing and they are not coming as the rate they once did because of the economy, not border security.
    Only thing the 30 NG can do is when the see an illegal aliens they notify border agents. What the hell is that?:eusa_hand:

    Americans should be PO because Obama thinks they are stupid.

    LilOlLady, the DOJ is suing the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office because they are withholding documents that have been requested, especially arrest reports, and because Sheriff's Office employees have been instructed not to speak with the DOJ without a lawyer present.

    Right, wrong or indifferent, IMO the DOJ is 100% correct. The documents they want are in the public's view...by what right can they be withheld from anyone requesting them, nevermind the DOJ? As for telling every employee they are "represented by counsel" to quell speech, that blows too.

    I'm not happy about the litigation, but I still think DOJ will win. We do not have secret county police in this country; in the normal course, only certain investigative and personnel files should be withheld from view.

    All your rhetoric might be interesting, but the answer to the question is he is refusing to cooperate with a federal investigation into allegations of discrimination and illegal searches and seizures by the department. He's lucky he wasn't arrested.

    Oh gotcha.

    I think it more in line with what you see out of hard leftists like Chavez. He creates an illusion of doing something (sending the NG to the border). Then, at the same time, undermines all real efforts to accomplish the goal. (Suing the sheriff, suing AZ and as a final method to undermine everything, have ICE refuse to deport anyone except the most egregious felons.)

    This is standard "Social Democracy" activity. The thing to understand is that Social Democrats are really the same as Marxists. (Make no mistake, our Democrats are "Social Democrats"). They just don't have the power to act completely like Marxists. But their goal are the same.
