Beck presses Arpaio

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio appeared on The Glenn Beck Show last week to talk about DHS’s move to end an agreement that allowed him to enforce federal immigration law. Beck started off the interview with a softball question for Arpaio, but as the interview went on, he appeared to grow skeptical of the sheriff’s claims.

“You know, Joe, I don’t understand how we can live in a country, especially your community, your area, where we have the highest kidnapping in the county, second only to Mexico City, and they don’t seem to have a problem now stopping you from enforcing our federal immigration laws,” Beck asked. Arpaio responded: “It’s all politics…. They can do anything they want. I’m still the elected sheriff…. I’m still going to do the same thing. Nothing changes.” That’s when Beck started to press Arpaio, suggesting that he didn’t have the legal ability to conduct immigration raids. “I’m just trying to understand this,” Beck said, giggling. “They said that you can’t endorse the federal laws, so how are you going to enforce it and still be a man of your word?” Arpaio retorted that he’s “going to enforce the state laws.”

  1. Obviously Obama and his crew have no interest in defending this country or its laws so every effort will be made to remove all law enforcement officials who take their jobs seriously.

  2. GQ just published a rather damning profile of Arpaio today (and yeah, I wrote it, but nevertheless):


    Arpaio is quoted as saying: “All these people that come over, they could come with disease. There’s no control, no health checks or anything. They check fruits and vegetables, how come they don’t check people? No one talks about that! They’re all dirty. I sent out 200 inmates into the desert, they picked up 18 tons of garbage that they bring in—the baby diapers and all that. Where’s everybody who wants to preserve the desert?”

  3. Arizona County Sheriff Joe Ariapo was sure to be marked by Napolitano, because his deputies were having a incredulous success rate, in apprehending illegal aliens in his jurisdiction. But repressed enforcement is not going to halt Ariapo from apprehending illegal immigrants, just as city Mayors ignore federal rules prohibiting Sanctuary City policies? Joe is a hard boiled, old time police officer who carries out his duties according to the –PEOPLES–law. Not laws engineered by corrupt elected officials? He cannot be bribed or intimidated by corporate money as most of the influential rulers in Washington are? He has a massive following of angry taxpayers who sick and tired of supporting illegal immigrant family welfare, proffered to them by the Democratic hierarchy. After years of intentional neglect by numerous administrations who have generated this invasion mess, honest cops like Joe have an overwhelming duty of apprehending foreign nations for transportation to ICE.

    The Sheriff doesn’t pander for campaign contributions from the business communities? So because he doesn’t pathetically comply with their demands, as they do, they want him out of office. He is an ongoing danger and worst nightmare to the corporate agenda for illegal discount workers. Now he has a free hand to arrest and not no longer restrained by federal law, but can use the powers of state laws detain illegal aliens and the criminal elements amongst them. We need more Joe’s tent cities and Joe’s cuisine of bologna sandwiches, because being subjected to this type of incarceration will deter the most ardent inmate. Nationwide we need more hard officers of the law, who will not genuflect to the open border lunatics, Not the soft hands of manipulated cops who don’t make waves looking towards an easy road to retirement.

    However the corrupt lawmakers around the nation, have not been able to crush E-Verify? AS YET? YES! Legal Immigration matters? We should announce to the world that newcomers are welcome, if they come through the front door? We only need those immigrants with specialized skills, such as computer engineers, scientists, doctors and those with highly recommended credentials as developed nations? America has a sovereign right who we choose to settle here? What we don’t need is pregnant women slipping across our border, for instant citizenship of their child or destitute illegal aliens whose cannot exist without taxpayer welfare, chain family migration? We don’t need in this country illegal recipients who need free health care, education when we already ignore our own people who live in poverty? We need to enforce the 1986 immigration reform law (IRCA), not cripple it for the sake of parasite businesses who live of the slavery of millions of foreign national workers.

    We need to execute now, a complete war immigration chest containing a mandated E-Verify for every worker–NOT REPRESSED–, or 287 G, local police arrest of foreign workers, the Rep.Duncan Hunter original national fence, instead of chopping it down to single line. We need enforcement of our laws, with harsh penalties for violating them. We need politicians we can trust, instead of those elected such as Sen.Reid, Speaker Pelosi, Feinstein and a whole list, who can be graded as Anti-American worker, anti-sovereignty, pro-illegal immigration and compromiser’s of the Rule of Law.

    Today, Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) will be offering an amendment to the Commerce, Justice, and Science appropriations bill that would require the U.S. Census Bureau to add questions regarding immigration & citizenship status to the 2010 decennial census. If these questions are not asked it is certain that illegal aliens will be counted in the census and states will lose/gain Congressional seats (and electoral college votes) due to this counting of illegal aliens.DEMAND FROM YOUR SENATORS THAT SEN. VITTERS’ AMENDMENT BE INCLUDED.

  4. After watching the Beck Arpaio segment in easy to see why the republican party will only grow smaller. Hate, Sarcasm and ignorance is their motto – Fox news credibility is zero and they have become more like slapstick comedy cable tabloid- The so called republican leaders have alienated live long republicans, They are all angry and arrogant. They act more like dictators. How Ironic!
