Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio today launched his 20th “Crime Supression Sweep”, as his Posse members flooded the streets of southwest Phoenix.
The area has seen a big spike in illegal alien-driven crime, including the killing of a police officer, and the kidnapping of a female business owner by Mexican drug smugglers. And the Sweep has already reaped dividends:
The sweep began around 2:30 p.m. Thursday and during the first hour of the operation, deputies made 18 arrests, of which 11 are suspected illegal aliens. Some of the charges that suspects have been arrested for include possession and sale of marijuana, outstanding warrants, and forgery and identity theft.
The Sheriff scoffed at accusations of “racial profiling” during his raids:
I don’t know if they’re all illegal or half illegal. We don’t take census of who lives here. It doesn’t make any difference.
WTG Joe! The sweep will continue through October 7.
