He’s known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff”. But Joe Arpaio continues to show he deserves the moniker of “America’s JOBS Sheriff”. Because every time Sheriff Joe conducts a raid, he frees up jobs for legal American workers.
Yesterday was no exception, as Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies raided the large General Nutrition Corporation (GNC) distribution warehouse in Phoenix. GNC is the dominant retailer of nutritional supplements in the U.S., with stores across the country.
MCSO’s Jeff Sprong says the vitamin distribution business employed as many as 21 suspects using false identifications to secure employment. Two suspects were using social security numbers belonging to dead persons, Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.
About 30 MCSO deputies are involved in the operation. Arpaio says five people were arrested. One person was hiding in a women’s bathroom, while another tried to hide under some type of equipment. Someone familiar with the business tipped off the Sheriff’s office last year about illegal immigrants using fake IDs.
“This is a big, big operation..over 1,100 stores on the west coast and Alaska and Hawaii..we’re not done yet. We have five in custody and will continue to look for the rest,” Arpaio said.
MCSO officials have told SWA that all 5 workers arrested thus far were in fact illegal aliens. It was the sheriff’s 59th such sweep. In the previous 58 employer sanctions/identity theft operations, 100% of all suspects found to be committing identity theft to gain employment were illegal aliens. The Maricopa County Sheriff ’s office has investigated, arrested on the streets and in the jails over 51,000 illegal aliens.
“Illegal aliens are stealing identities of U.S. citizens to gain employment which escalates our unemployment problems. I don’t believe we should tolerate this. Furthermore, I will continue to enforce all federal and state illegal immigration laws in the business sector through human smuggling and crime suppression operations, despite activists and the federal government who may not like it,” said the Sheriff.
A video report is below. Notice how the sniveling local reporter Mike Watkiss absurdly gives camera time to an illegal alien supporter who “sees nothing wrong” with illegals using the stolen identity of Americans – including those who are desceased. And of course he works in a mention of the absurd “racial profiling” lawsuit that was filed against Sheriff Joe.
Arpaio stresses that one of the benefits of these employer sanctions/identity theft operations is that they open up job opportunities for legal citizens.
For critics who insist that illegal aliens only take the jobs that Americans refuse to do, we remind them of the example in the news report below, where legal workers of all ages and backgrounds lined up for jobs at three Phoenix-area restaurants, after a major Arpaio raid removed 200 workers there:
“America’s Jobs Sheriff” is on it. Don’t you wish your local Sheriff worked as hard to free up jobs in your city or town? If they are not, let them know you want our laws enforced, and illegal aliens taken off the job. (You can find their contact info HERE).
Way to go, Joe!
