Maricopa County supervisors are deciding Monday whether the sheriff’s office begins receiving $2.4 million in racketeering and jail enhancement funds.

The board froze the sheriff’s office access to Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act funds and jail-enhancement funds amid concerns of possible misspending.

County officials said they took the action to better understand how the money was being spent.

Terms of the cash release include Sheriff’s officials asking permission from county administrators before spending it.

Before, Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office spent money from the fund without pre-approval.

  1. Its a sad situation when the politicians we select, sue the State of Arizona, Governor Brewer, State Senator Pierce or even the Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio and any other lawmaker who tries to protect the populace from the illegal alien invasion.

    Majority Senator Harry Reid and his minions nearly killed E-Verify, but even so it must be permanent? From its inception the special interest and open border zealots tried to erase it. However–it is getting known nationwide and is a simple computer program, which can verify illegal alien workers. It needs the American population to demand it, fully funded and everybody–long term or temporary workers. This is a cheap, cost effective way to remove illegal immigrants from every workplace, by ATTRITION. Along with the real, paired fences at the border and installed like the one separating Egypt from the Gaza Strip, built by US army engineers of steel. We can spend billions of dollars guarding foreign borders, but cut-costs to build our own fence to protect our country? We should also train every police officer to use the federal 287 (g) program, with a directive to question, detain and apprehend? Not as we have now a “Catch and Release” program that where only serious criminals are incarcerated?

    All “Sanctuary City and States” policies must be eliminated, as citizens are being murdered, assaulted and molested by foreign nationals. W cannot trust the “Honor System” for voting anymore, specifically where absentee ballots are concerned across America, as illegal voting can undermine our Democracy. California, Nevada have emergency financial issues, as instant birthright laws for babies of illegal immigrant Mothers are asphyxiating the public welfare system., They come here and pay nothing for hospital services and the massive financial cornucopia of cash and benefits in the hundreds of billions of dollars that YOU are payee too. American taxpayers and labor cannot afford to subsidize the underprivileged of foreign countries, as its time to look after our own needy.

    In conclusion, we must be aware of a devious plan to associate this nations Social Security with Mexico, which will not benefit our own people not one iota. The question is simple to answer—enforce the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control bill and imprison business owners who hire illegal labor? Remember to not–VOTE–for any pro-amnesty incumbents now or in November.
