If illegal aliens covered by Obama’s lawless amnesty edict are breathing a sigh of relief that they no longer face the legal consequences of their illegal status, they’ll have another thing coming in Maricopa County, Arizona.
Because this is Sheriff Joe’s County, and he will continue to enforce the laws on the books as written.
When asked by a reporter if Arpaio will “help those new immigrants who are here under that provision to feel welcome?” the Sheriff simply said he had no contact with those people and that “I’m going to continue to enforce all our illegal immigration laws.”
In other words, if you are a so-called “Dreamer” in the 4th largest county in America, there is a pair of pink underwear in Tent City with your name on it – Obama amnesty be damned.
Joe also gave his opinion that Obama chose this Friday to spring this surprise on America, as a preemptive strike against the likely upcoming Supreme Court approval of S.B. 1070…
Well first of all, it seems to be politically-motivated. We have our 1070 Supreme Court ruling coming out maybe Monday and here’s an election year. I would rather see the president let the congress decide what to do with this issue and other illegal immigration problems.
And finally, Joe was the first political leader today to grasp what we tried to convey this morning – that the “800,000” or “1 million” figures are irrelevant – this amnesty order will spark a new bum rush for the border from the Mexican side. Because it is so easy, so little verification by DHS, it is so easy to lie and use fraudulent documents…once you get inside the border.
Joe gets it…
“As the President keeps with these executive orders, I think people from Mexico are now going to feel, ‘Hey come on in and we’ll get by with it.’ But it won’t happen in this county. They will still be arrested,” Arpaio said.
When we remember that Sheriff Joe and his deputies detain a whopping 25% of ALL illegal aliens captured in the entire U.S. every year, we realize just how critical his department will be to STOPPING the amnesty by continuing to enforce STATE laws against illegal immigration. This is why it is SO critical that Sheriff Joe Arpaio be re-elected this year, and why George Soros is willing to spend $10 million to defeat him.
Arizona is the gateway, and Sheriff Joe is the gate. We cannot afford for that gate to fall. We must stand with Joe.
