It make me mad about the group who claim the illegal alien have right. I am a tax payer and I am tired of paying their way in this country. What kind of right they should have in this country? I would like to know and what kind of right the tax payers should have in this country? By us have to spend millions of dollars to secure the border is not working and we have try everythings is not working. The only person will stand up to this is Sheriff Joe. Now you telling me that he is wrong to doing his job which my tax money pay for it. Hell, this group think they have right should open their home to take in all the illegal and support them and let see how long that going to last.

Illegal is illegal. Either change the law or enforce it. He is the only person in America that intends to enforce the law. You can not have a law and then tell law enforcement not to enforce it. He is only doing his job.

Arpaio is well over his boundaries. Instead of trying to undermine the law that he swore to uphold, he should worry about making conditions and relationships better within his own law enforcement community.

I have mix feeling about Sheriff Joe,he is by all accounts trying to do his job as an elected official.The problem is not with Sheriff Joe per say but it is with the greedy mind set of the politicians of the state.

10 or more years ago when I moved here from New Jersey as a professional trained painter I could not get a job paying over $12.00 an hour even though I had over 12 of painting experience.Do you know why that was?

They had so many illegal worker here that a company could hire 2 of them for the price that they would pay me. During that time their was no body yelling about sending all the illegals back to where ever!

Now that the economy is bad the illegals are of no value. In the mean time most Americans have left the skill trade industry so they will be a shortage when the economy picks up again.By the way what happen to all of that money that poured into Arizona during that time,the "Rainy Day Fund".

Sheriff Joe is a little harsh in his demeanor and how he comes across but he is doing his job. The next time you vote for your politician make sure that they can't be bought and supports American workers.

I think "Sherriff Joe" should be recalled I have heard from his own mouth that he is racist. He also abuses his power in a myriad of ways. If you stand up to the bully you wind up being investagated. From what I remember he still has not provided fiscal information re; transportation. There is so much dirt under this guy you might as well call him a Bush.

Those of you who hate Sheriff Joe,too bad,i voted for him and will do so again.If you do not belong,hide real good because he will come after you.
He is showing those who abuse our laws will have to appear in court and spend time with him.I am tired of those who use my tax money to support those who must be deported.
The Fourteenth Amendment says that just because you are born in America does not make you a citizen and children born to illegals are Citizens of the Country that the illegal parents were naturalized in and that is Mexico.

The problem with Arpaio is that he wants to pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce. By the looks of his press releases this man is absolutely obsessed with only going after immigration and animal abusers.

I think he's a liability to our county and because he's received so much national attention for his TV tantrums, he's just a plain embarrassment to us all. Tisk tisk tisk.

Sheriff Joe is an embarrassment to Phoenix and Arizona. The man is a black eye for the Sheriff's Dept. His jails are inhumane, He regularly breaks laws and believes that he is above all law, even the federal ones. He is a racist to boot. He needs to be at the least removed from office, and at best, held accountable for his illegal activities.

I figure with the FBI investigating him, there's gotta be something good behind this investigation.

Usually those types of investigations lead to an indictment. He's well over due for one.

The question is what (out of so many violations) will he be indicted for. I can't wait to see him and Hendershott finally get handcuffed and hauled out of their Wells Fargo office.

This whole fiasco is a movie in the making... just like "Mississippi Burning".

I wonder which actor will play Arpaio?

Sheriff Joe is enforcing the law when he has no choice but to enforce it strictly. Look at the situation in Phoenix - human smuggling; illegal dope; kidnapping; ID theft/fraud running rampant. Where do most of those problems emanate? MEXICO and CENTRAL AMERICA. Should we be looking for Irish people wearing green?

Last I checked this was the U.S. I'm seeing more and more that the pansies in our gov. do not care what happens to this country.
My grandfather would roll over in his grave if he saw what Arizona and other states have become. Press one for english are you kidding me!! This is the U.S, we speak english here as our forefathers did when they made this country great, or it was then.
Why should my hard earned money go to someone who isn't suppose to be here and can't even speak the language. The illegals are draining our state dry as well as California. Sure come to the U.S and get a check for popping out puppies like a puppy mill.
My wife sees this firsthand as she works for DES. She sees these illegals getting food stamps and cash, most of the time cash is over a grand and up to $3500 in most cases. Can't anyone else see where the hell the money is going? Mexico is a crap hole and in time so will AZ. We both work hard to make ends meet and sometimes it's not enough, where's my footstamps? Too bad sir you make too much! But illegals can come here and get free food and cash!
Wake up America and take a stand, Lets send them back across the border where they belong. I totally support our beloved sheriff. Let's show them we don't' want them here by going to the state capitol and demonstrate Nov 7th.

Joe is correct for enforcing immigration laws. However he needs to focus on ALL laws, not just a few select ones. I voted for him, but it is time for him to go. He consistently abuses his authority. His command staff likewise need to be indicated and jailed.
America needs to create a common sense immigration law and then properly enforce it. Remember, we are the melting pot of the world. That is the history of this country.

What part of the word ILLEGAL do people not understand? I'm sorry the MEXICAN government has a really bad records system. If you sneak across an international border anywhere in the world, you are jailed longer and sometimes not released at all until you can prove your identity! I commend the sheriff for enforcing our laws and hope that his police force will show restraint when handling someones' mother, father, son or daughter. Unfortunately i read about police brutality recently regarding arrests. They may have committed a criminal act but only by trying to better their lives. Mexico is the problem not our sheriff.

What amazes me is how we throw around the illegal word. When anglo-americans came to the United States we had no problem robbing,raping,and killing the American Indian population. To add insult to injury we packed them off to other parts of the nation. (Do we remember history?)They became 2nd or 3rd class citizens. If you look at the contintent from outer space there is not a line that says hey you people dont come here. A hungry, homeless baby, child or adult deserves to be treated humanely and with kindness. Not the brutal gestapo like tatics that sherriff joe bestows.
If joe has any sense of a higher power he should step down. Power has gone to this mans head....As if he just stepped off the mayflower and sees brown people

Sheriff Arpaio is ignoring real crime while focusing on the arrests of those who wash cars and mow lawns for a living simply to gain popularity with the most racist and hateful element in our society.

He abuses his power to target those that oppose him weather they are high profile political enemies or activists legally observing his sweeps or harassment of citizens in Guadalupe. ( His department have arrested 9 activists within the last 12 months and all were found innocent of any wrong doing)

He conducts himself as a 3rd world dictator and has created a following of lynch mob supporters-many with ties to neo-Nazi and racist hate groups recognized as such by SPLC and ADL.

He has cost the tax payers Millions more in lawsuits than any Sheriff in the Nation and will be the first to tell you he doesn't care. He has become a cancer on the moral fiber of Maricopa County and deliberate poster boy on a debate that needs voices of reason, compassion and sensibility. I'd hate to be in his shoes come Judgment Day.

I really can't understand the Hispanic and Latino people who are US Citizens that support illegal aliens coming into our country illegally and reaping the benefits that You and I have worked so hard for. They take advantage of our tax dollars without any questions. Forbid you or I need help from the system and see how fast the government says NO!!.
Sheriff Joe is one of the few people willing to buck City Hall and try to do the job he was elected to do by US Citizens. If you don't like to obey the state laws that were put into effect by US Citizens, leave our great state and county and let Sheriff Joe do his job by putting non US Citizens back to their own country.
Love it or leave it.

Arpaio is going after those who break the laws and it should not matter if or what office they hold.Some county supervisors have held office to long and when they make a mistake like misusing funds that affect the citizens who after all put that money where it is threw taxes paid,someone has to stand up for what`s right and if some don`t like it,too bad it`s the law.
As far as prisoners that break the law,jail has never been a picnic and should not be treated as such.Mexico is harsher when they deal with the own,so stop thinking about America going bad because of how they deal with prisoners,it`s jail not a hotel.Be glad that at least one person in America is willing to deal with illegals and place them where they belong.The Federal Law says,deport illegals after serving time for being here without permission,it`s not racism,it`s the law.

All that money could go to schools, work programs, drug rehabs, and so on. At the top of my list, FINISHING THE FENCE BETWEEN THE BORDER WITH TRIGGER HAPPY GUARDS. Explosives need to be placed in the ground for the tunnel rats trying to get under the fence.

Over 8 months of constant investigations by the DOJ and the FBI (news flash KPHO, the FBI has been involved since day 1) and not 1 single shred of evidence against MCSO or the Sheriff. Not 1 single Civil Rights violation, not 1 single violation of the terms and conditions of 287(g).

But the left wing (nuts) keep on with their frivolous, slanderous attacks against law and order.

Humanleague002 is DENNIS GILMAN, a paid video propagandist for the open borders anarchists. He is an anarchist subversive, but too cowardly to fire a shot against the United States.

Fortunately GILMAN aka "Gilchrist" and "Gilmando," has lost all at this point. We're hoping to see him charged by the feds in the future for a conspiracy to subvert the laws of our Nation. We believe that he's under investigation on numerous fronts. Many have given us information and evidence that may be used in a lawsuit against him. That's easier to prove by only a preponderance of evidence.

I am constantly amazed at the amount of people who are taken in by this greasy self-serving imbecile and his band of merry idiots. His only skill is to blow his own horn, usually exaggeratedly, and to allow his minions to bring county government to a halt through idiotic lawsuits. Those who parrot the mantra "He's the only one doing anything about illegal immigration" are blind. Any given law enforcement agency in the county OTHER than MCSO does 10 times the work in this regard, and usually snags felons in the bargain. Arpaio must go, and be prosecuted for misuse of authority, if this county is ever to join the 20th century (10 years after it ended).

You don't have to run an FBI investigation to know that Joe Arpaio is crooked. It is obvious from the statements he makes in public that he feels that HE is above the law. He is a narrow-minded biggot and a political thug (as evidenced by this investigation) and should never hold ANY public office of place of power where he can afflict people.

As for my somewhat illiterate "friend" Linda from Scottsdale, if she wants to pat Joe on the back & be happy he's doing something about illegals, then she should learn the language.

Kudos to CBS 5 for being the only news station in the valley to take on Sheriff Joe and tell the true story of what he does. The Sheriff is not interested in enforcing all laws in Maricopa County, but only the ones that will score him points with the extremists in our community. He is only concerned with getting his mug on TV and not in true law enforcement.

What most people don't seem to understand is that the FBI investigation has nothing to do with the immigration issue. It has to do with abuse of power. If anyone has paid attention to the news over the past couple of years, it is obvious that a pattern has been developing. Those who disagree with Sheriff Joe have been wrongly accused of whatever the Sheriff can cook up. These intimidation tactics are not part of the culture we try to create and should not be tolerated.

Regardless of what he has done to "enforce" the law, he has broken the law himself and is as liable as everyone he's booked. The fact that he has a personal vendetta against anyone of foreign descent shows a clear picture of his lack of character. He may defend himself by saying that the ends justify the means but everyone with some sense of sanity knows that's rubbish. He should never conduct his job at the expense of innocent people. The moment that you forget your job is to protect those very same innocent people you have been corrupted. It's clear and simple, Joe has become corrupt. He needs to go and needs to spend time in a cell. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Sheriff Joe should run for Governor and Hendershot should be his replacement. 30% of our prison population is Mexican. Any of you Gordon asskissers want to defend that? Sheriff Joe does NOT specifically pursue Mexicans. Read the reports of how many other central Americans and other nationals get flown to Mexico City. Read the story, if you've got the guts: And that amount is ONLY for birth costs. It doesn't include immunizations, ADC costs, education costs, and on and on and on. I recall an estimate of $80 billion per year for the overall costs of illegals in the US. And that doesn't include the costs for American citizens being deprived of jobs because illegals will work for damn less.

I have a hard time in trying to make myself understand what is legal about being illegal. Some of the comments that are coming from people holding office in our government make me wonder why we elected them. I don’t have a problem with anyone coming over to the US and becoming a citizen but it needs to be done legally. I am tired of paying taxes to cover their expenses and then watch them demonstrate in the streets against our laws. If they don’t like our laws they should go home!!

I find it frightening that Arpaio is conducting himself the way he is. What is even more so are the voters who think he is doing his job by violating civil rights and abuse of office, whether he directs it against Hispanics or our elected officials. Citizens who turn their eyes when a public official behaves in the manner that Arpaio does should remember from history what Hitler did by focusing hatred against minorities and conducted vendettas against those who opposed him.

Excellent reporting KPHO!

We all want people to do what the law says, so WHY doesn't Arpaio focus on Real Criminals, that is his job? He was stripped of the 287G because they wanted him to go after REAL criminals who are here undocumented, he refused to, he wanted to get all the "easy arrests", just stop any brown person on the street driving a car, or working washing cars, like folks who have NEVER committed a crime, paid taxes (taken out of their checks) and are raising US citizen children. Arpaio himself even said that he is short of deputies to do all the functions his department is supposed to... SO why not go after the criminals??? You haters don't care if rapists, murderers, drug dealers get ignored, just as long as people who speak spanish are out of your neighborhood... Get a freakin life...look at history a little too and you will find out this is how immigrants have come here for 100's of years. They have brought their language, food, culture and it enriched us all. I have Polish and Irish ancestors, both are cultures I love and share with my friends, and they share theirs with me. My polish great grandma never spoke English her whole life, as many immigrants didn't. Just chill out and get your own life going, let other people be, you are poison yourself with all your hate.

It's just amazing to me that people out here in the desert are so happy with this Joe. When ever I see him on TV I am always embarrassed for him. He always acts so un-professional and angry. How is it that people in the 21st century could be attracted to such a thug? He's just an elderly high school bully. How can such a huge population admire this Joe as a sheriff?

I am white and nearly sixty. I am a retired professional. I would never vote for an angry old bastard like Joe for sheriff. I have met many many Latinos, legally and illegally in Maricopa County, that are much better people than old Joe.

My, My, How bizarre all of this really is! Sheriff Joe is a highly visible public official trying to do his sworn job. Some of his results may have been accomplished in controversial ways. YES! Sheriff Joe may have stretched the law to his benefit at times. But ask yourself WHY; at this hour is all this coming to the surface? Is it that one should dig a bit deeper in a different direction for the real truth of why at this hour, maybe an individual, a group or groups attempting to discredit or remove Sheriff Joe (in a big public display) by assembling questionable information to be presented in a way to appear incriminating. All of this for a smoke screen? Possibly so a massive plan or plans may be carried out unchecked by the media or general public. While most would possibly be watching…What’s going on with Sheriff Joe!!! Who will be watching all of the other elected officials in control of your future’s FREEDOM? Is it because of a possible pending treaty with our bordering countries? To continue the agenda to create a North American Union, effectively erasing our borders with both Mexico and Canada? Really at present…Homeland Security how effective is it? How secure are our borders??? Is it all show and very little action?
Is it because ...WE ABOUT TO LOSE OUR SOVEREIGNTY IN DECEMBER...!!!? The accumulated information on contains some very enlightening insights.
My question to all…Is Sheriff Joe the only “OATH KEEPER” of elected officials? That is at all costs to defend The Constitution of the United States and our way of life from all foes both foreign and domestic! Really now…Who is watching your back???

First off those of you who think Sheriff Joe is a racist well now I agree with the lady said open your doors and homes and most of all open your wallets to care for those coming over that damn border that we don't need nor want. Yes you heard me want, did you do a background check on them? Did you investigate to see if they were fit to come into this country or are you one of their gang already here with one of the empty houses in a good neighborhood all picked out for them to do all their illegal work in? Are you one of those that has semi automatics converted into automatics and ready to join a gang and kill as all of those who hate the whites put it "kill us all off"? BNefore you go off all half cocked I have an aunt from Mexico and one from the Phillipians difference is both are here LEGALLY and they both say don't stop Sheriff Joe we need more like him. They once liked their homes when they were basically safe now unless you have a CCW and your house is armed you aren't safe and then we aren't really! Why because of all the crimes being comitted due to lack of jobs many jobs being taken by illegals willing to work for any wage.
Come off it folks face what the world is becoming because of the law of authority the law has now due to all this BS flying?
Once again LEAVE SHERIFF JOE alone to do his job!

Sheriff Joe is creating a climate of fear. My Girlfriend is a Mexican-American, she is a Natural Born Citizen. The way he enforces that law scares her so much she stays at home rather than risk being stopped for being brown and being detained while trying to prove she is a legal citizen.

Many Arizonans believe that immigrants legal or illegal have no right. And yet this is not true. EVERYONE living in the USA has the same rights no matter what their status. Sheriff Joe is enforcing a misdemeanor because that what being here illegally is. He needs to enforce ALL the laws not just the ones that makes him appear to be big on law enforcement. Like going after whoever hurt th cats, sure that is a tragedy and I think that they should go after the person responsible. Too bad he isn't as zealous when people die in his jails at rooting out the truth. he has cost the taxpayers over 44 Million dollars. He cannot operate his forces within budget. He uses the shield law to hide his business properties but not his home address. When he is called out on it he attacks the paper claiming he's been threatened as a result of their publishing his home address which was already posted on line because he didn't use the law for the proper purpose. SO if he is to follow his own mandate to enforce the LAW. He should have himself placed under arrest for breaking the LAW.

He only goes after High profile cases and leaves anything that may make him look bad alone. After any negative press or articles appear about him surface, The very next day he has a major bust to announce which then distracts the news off the damaging story.

How many of you know who the Sheriff is in another county or state? Why does he SEEK the spotlight? He's the one who calls himself the toughest sheriff, yet he solves no major crimes they are mostly resolved by exception. His street sweeps pick up 10 maybe 15 illegals that are contributing to the economy while DPS, Mesa and Phoenix police bust the drop houses and catch the people newly arrived and the people who transport them here. It is easy to go after the low hanging fruit (alleged traffic violation) not so easy to go after the drug dealers and Coyotes that takes real police work.

My husband and I love Sheriff Joe and stand behind him 100%.

Since we've been here in Arizona, we've noticed that a good amount of the time when a serious crime is reported on here it was committed by an illegal. Kidnappings, armed robberies, burglaries, rapes, murders, drug rings... When Sheriff Joe arrests illegals, he truly takes a bite out of crime.

The federal government could learn a lesson from Sheriff Joe. If the feds paid attention to illegal immigration and booted these people back to Mexico instead of paying them to be here using our tax dollars, our crime rate would be lower and there would be more money for programs that benefit legal U.S. citizens.

We're not against LEGAL immigration what-so-ever. We welcome those who want to fly OUR flag, learn OUR language and be proud of being a citizen of the U.S. If you can't follow one simple law and you come into this country illegally, you don't belong here.

My fiance is currently in Estrella Jail. When sentenced, the court ordered medical treatment as she is Bi-Polar, PTSD and ADD. She is considered Seriously Mentally Ill (SMI). The appropriate medical paperwork was sent and recieved by the jail's medical staff. She also requires blood pressure medication. The jail has failed to provide the medications required. Under the supervision of Arpaio, the medications have not been provided in the doses and frequencies required. If a diabetic were sent to jail would he deny the required insulin injections? I suppose it is a matter of economics but he can afford to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a SWAT tank that has only been used for public relations! As an officer of the court he willingly ignores court orders, medical requirements. As an officer of the court he ignores the 60,000 outstanding warrants. It wouldn't surprise me to hear that he is rounding up parisioners leaving a Latino church on any given Sunday morning. Yes, he was elected, but he is not an island unto himself, unless you ask him. He has no respect for the courts, the supervisors and most of all the public that pays the taxes that fund him. It seems to me that $45 millon dollars spent by the county to defend the 2,200 lawsuits is indictment enough of the fact that he violates the laws that he seem so high and mighty to uphold. While these lawsuits may not have been adjudicated yet, it defies common sense to suggest that they are all just frivolous. Or maybe he just picks and choses which laws to uphold and obey. I do not make the case about my fiance being unjustly prosecuted by the State but a 30 day sentence should not be turmned into the possibility of a life sentence. If the people of Maricopa County want an SS Force they have it with Arpaio. The difference between Arpaio and those he arrests and jails is neglible. Neither seem to play well with others.

Illegals pose a big problem on our way of life. First of all they don't pay taxes (majority of them), and then they don't even bother to speak or even try to learn the language. Joe needs to keep enforcing the law and if he needs help, he should just drive up and down McDowell Rd from 44th st to 99th ave. He can get a few million over the weekend.

So what was the basis for the investigation if not politicall motivated. What about those that were arrested, investigated, susequently cleared of all wrong doing, suing the MCSO and WINNING in court, speak to that!

Let's introduce a little perspective into the arguments -
1. The ancestors of these "illegals" called Arizona home before the United States acquired the territory in the Mexican War, which General and President U. S. Grant referred to as "one of the most unjust ever waged on a weaker country by a stronger." It's kind of like calling Palestinians illegal aliens in the Gaza Strip.
2. To those who say these people mooch off of the American taxpayer by stealing social services, let's not forget that many have taxes withheld from their paychecks - taxes from which the receive no formal benefit nor refunds from overpayment.
3. To those who claim that these people take jobs away from Americans, by and large they are laborers performing tasks necessary and wanted by our society that few "Americans" want. Their willingness to do these very difficult jobs at a lower rate of pay has contributed to the affordability of living here and the tremendous growth we've sustained over the last 50 years.
4. Their culture is based on principles such as working hard, providing for their families, and making it on their own regardless of personal hardship or their own safety.
5. Industries such as home building absolutely rely on their labor. When the market eventually returns, expect high prices due to the shortage of labor that now exists because of the state's immigration laws.
As for Sheriff Joe - he's a narcissistic, vindictive, self-promoting demagogue who thinks he's larger than life, and can do whatever he wants to whomever he wants with total disreguard to decency and the law. He talks about himself in the third person like he's "The Great Oz" himself. He seems to forget that we don't serve him, he's supposed to be serving us.
As for those who applaud his tough talk and stance on crime - there was another guy who was pretty good at that as well. His name was Adolph Hitler. Remember, the guy who wanted to segregate the undesirables from the rest of the society - sort of like rounding them all up and giving them their own tent city. Except he called them concentration camps.
He's tough on crime alright. He locks up cops who forget their dogs in the car. He locks up gardeners with shovels and pitchforks. He locks up cooks weilding spatchulas.
Sheriff Joe is all about Sheriff Joe. He's an embarrassment.

Arizonians.....take a hard look at all of the facts. Arpaio has cost over $43,000,000 (That's Millions) in LOST law suits. These suits are just the tip of the iceberg. Most people don't know that when Arpaio loses a civil suit, the first $1,000,000 is paid from the county's general fund and anything over that comes from an insurance policy. The county doesn't just lay down and say that Arpaio was wrong in these law suits just to save money, they defend the suits that are "Bogus" to keep from having to use TAXPAYER'S money. Last night's story was just another example of why Arpaio is a bad economic choice for our county. Arpaio will continue his practices and more law suits will be paid with OUR money. Arpaio keeps saying that he works for the citizens of this county. He seems to forget that a large percentage of citizens in this county are Hispanic. I am caucasian and am tired of my tax dollars being spent because Arpaio can't admit when he is doing something that is NOT in the public's best interest. The public needs to stop casting votes for a name that they recognize because our tax dollars are being used to keep that name in the public eye with a bunch of "programs" that have no positive effect on reducing crime. Crime is up in the unincorporated areas of Maricopa County....ya know...the areas where Arpaio is primarily responsible for Law Enforcement. He can't take credit for reducing crime when the overall statistics are lower because of the Police Chiefs in their respective cities are doing their jobs the right way....using community policing and trying to halt racial profiling.

To those who wonder what laws that Arpaio is breaking, here is a probable rundown

Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242 - Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law

Title 42, U.S.C., Section 14141 - Pattern and Practice

Title 18, U.S.C., Section 245 Paragraph 2, Paragraph 3 Federally Protected Activities

Each violation or count carries a maximum of 10 years in Prison and a $250,000.00 Fine.

Well, after looking through these posts, it's reassuring to know that three people, Stacy, Rapshutyourtrap and whoever at Equity (Illegal Hispanic)Court Services watch this station. The great majority, right? Only reason I saw the promo about Joe is because they ran it during CSI. Otherwise, I don't watch this station. Joe Arpaio won the last election and the one before that, fair and square, because the real majority that is too busy having a life to sit around blogging all day, happen to think he's doing exactly what the taxpaying citizens of this county require of him. Law enforcement. Bet you three never heard about the website at the Blackhouse keeping track of all of us tax day tea partygoers and people who oppose the great one's utopian commie ideas. That's because you depend on KPHO for your news. That's okay, you'd have no problem with Obama and HIS goons keeping tabs on people like us that oppose the liberal nanny state. But shame on Joe? You are kinda like uh, hippo crits, aren't ya? I know, I know, it's not spelled correctly. Just thought I'd play along with the "you're all stupid" stereotype you like to lay on us. Made you fell better, huh? Like the post KPHO has displayed prominently at the top of this crappy blog written by some nitwit who can't spell or use proper grammar that happens to agree with my views. Or maybe they have editors to make people like us look bad??? Anyway, Like you tell us about Obama winning the election, GET OVER IT. You'll have to start scrubbing your own toilets and trimming your own trees. But, oh yeah, that's not the only jobs the illegals do at crap wages because you care about them so much. They also make the Contractor's rich. You think your such do-gooders. Ever wonder why they can't catch a break in their own country? Because they aren't trying, that's why. Why should they, when they can come here and work four months for crap wages that translate into big bucks in Mexico and go back home for a three month hiatus and play bigshot in their dirt poor village. Then do the vacation rotation again. Meanwhile, keep printing that dinero Obama, and let's watch our healthcare crisis keep exploding because they use our emergency rooms for free clinics. But don't worry, Obama has a solution for every problem he perpetuates. (That means "promotes" to you feeble minded do gooders that go around creating the problems you then need taxpayer money to correct).

Be careful KPHO, if you get the sheriff angry, he will find some way to get his stooges to raid the studio and demand every e-mail, sent to and from the station in the last ten years and demand checks into the personal history of each employee.

I am amaze how most of you have posted stuff related to immigration. This story is not immigration it is about Civil Rights Violations. Just because some speaks legitmately against the sheriff does not give him the right to go and investigate them and then no charges are filed or they are dropped for lack of evidence come on people stick to the story at hand. This is not immigration people this is our Right to Speak without being intimidated.

The sheriff's office , from my perspective and knowledge, is corrupt. Abuses of power are obviously ongoing. The shameless political self promotion Arpaio offers has become institutionalized. I believe the sheriff's office represents the lowest form of law enforcement. How the people of Arizona fail to see thru the sheriff's thinly veiled self promotion to expose the truth is amazing to me. Just do the math on the lawsuits alone and ask why the sheriff fails to correct a system that is dysfunctional, manipulated, and a huge liability for tax payers.

Hmmm ... I guess it's ok for some to abuse power which IS factual ... Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and obviously our fearful leader, Barack Hussein Obama. Anyone heard of the Subprime meltdown? Funny how figuratively speaking the insane are running the asylum.

Bottom line is this, one day you clueless ones will see what truly is ... IS!

If Sheriff Arpaio was a liberal, illegal amnesty lunatic, you would embrace him as the author of change we can believe in.

Sheriff Arpaio believes same as I do, the US Constitution IS the Law of the Land!

As a US Marine veteran I took an oath and so did Sheriff Arpaio and our fearful leader.

The difference is Sheriff Arapaio and I believe those words are an order of duty not a punchline for pandering votes.

Sheriff Arpaio's so-called abuse of power is his insistence on enforcing and upholding the US Constitution and not listening DC's call to dismantle and ignore Our Lady Liberty!

By the way, what part of illegal, is legal? Simple question.

Wake up to the stupidity enveloping you and rage against the tyrannical machine!

Happy to hear Arpaio is getting looked into Twice I was pulled over by his deputies once in Guadeloupe and the other in Laveen.
both times the first thing I was ask was for proof of citizenship not my drivers license & registration.
even though I show both drivers license & registration they still took me in to prove that I'm not an illegal alien.
So Yes I say they are profiling and not using common sense.

After reading all that is said in these blog pages, my first reaction was, why even bother to say anything intelligent to some of these people. But than I thought what the heck, nothing is lost in trying.
What I concieve from many of the comments, that passion about the subject has long suppressed some people's logic. It certainly is good that it is not being discussed face to face around a round table as someone surely would get hurt.
Many writers are missing the point either due to lack of knowledge of the law or due to their passion about the subject.
All countries pass laws to regulate something or other. Subject here is not as much sheriff Joe as it is the law. If Mexico and U.S
had decided to open their respective borders in a mutual agreement to freely enter in an out, I would have no problems with that. But they both, at the moment, have restrictions regarding that. That means they both have certain laws regulating crossing illegally. Well, someone has to enforce these restrictions on both sides, and on this side, if it is not sheriff Joe it will be someone else. The problem as I see it is that we are a border state and when the law enforcement stops someone how in the world can they even guess that someone is legal or illegal. You tell me, can any of you? No. Neither can anyone else. I have never had a problem with legal emmigrants no matter where they came from.
They take the time to go thru the proper channels to be here and are beneficial to their new country. How is it fair to them, who may have waited long time to go thru proper channels to come here, that others completely circumvent the whole process and sneak in?
I think sheriff Joe is a bit eccentric and over the years have bcome somewhat self righteus, but is doing the job he was elected to do and that is to enforce the existing laws.
If we don't like it we need to change the laws,
not necessarily sheriff Joe.
As to his investigation of other politicians,
have you ever met a politician that shouldn't be investigated? Yeah. I rest my case.

Most of the people that have a problem with Sherriff Joe are the ones that have caused problems for the Sherriff.

Being a sanctuary city of course you would have problems with the Sherriff.
Mary “I never met a tax I didn’t like” Wilcox is another offender, she needs to be investigated for some of the illegal things she has done. Wilcox got away with the "house problem" she had awhile back.
Gascon is another that needs to be investigated along with Jack Harris, they’re both corrupt.

Joe Arpaio, like every other elected politician in Arizona, is an arrogant, self-aggrandizing, self-centered ass. He more than most displays these behaviors on a daily basis. His management of the MCSO has already cost the taxpayers multiple millions of dollars to pay for law suits lost because of misbehavior. He really has done nothing to improve the safety of citizens. It is all smoke and mirrors and bombastic statements by the local version of a vertically challenged Napoleon. He too will someday, soon we hope, meet his Waterloo and hopefully will be exiled to Mexico where he can live out life surrounded by other short males with no balls, no brains and no sense of civility!

I agree that we should not be giving money and food stamps to people who are here in our country illegally. I also agree that I should not have to press 1 for English. My family came over from Germany 100 years ago and they learned English. Immigrants from other countries learn english, in fact most countries it is manditory to learn English in school.

However, I do not agree that ANYONE has the right to racially profile anyone. I have a friend who's family is originally from Costa Rica but he is 3rd generation born in the US. He was stopped in his car by a Maricopa County Sherrif and held at gun point until he was able to prove he was here legally, just because he is Latino, they were not able to give him any other reason why they stopped him. Is that fair? I don't think so. That would be like blaming my family for what Hitler did 30 years after my family migrated to the US.

I have lived here in AZ for 22 years and have previously voted for Arpiao. But I have not voted for him in the last 3 elections. I agree with Barry above, he is extremely arrogant and doesn't think anyone can touch him. He thinks HE is the law and can do what ever he wants to whomever he wants. Kuddos to Channel 5 for their relentless investigations into his criminal activities. He will get what is coming to him. Keep up the good work!

Let's introduce a little TRUE perspective into the arguments –

1. The ancestors of these "illegals" called Arizona home, even though Indians called the area home too! This land became OUR home when the United States acquired the territory in the Mexican War. This war stabilized our border with Mexico and established our Sovereign rights and LAW as to who can live here LEGALLY!

2. To those who say illegals mooch off of the American taxpayer by stealing social services, let's not forget that many have taxes withheld from their paychecks - taxes from which the receive no formal benefit nor refunds from overpayment, BECAUSE they stole into the country and STOLE identity such as a social security number and a drivers license to get the job in the first place!
3. To those who claim that illegals take jobs away from Americans they are correct! Even though illegals are laborers performing tasks necessary and needed by our society, many "LEGAL Americans" want those jobs. Illegals, through their willingness to do these very difficult jobs at a lower rate of pay has contributed to their own illegal predicament! Their illegal arrival in our country has caused the LOSS of JOBS by LEGAL Americans! The tremendous growth the U.S. has sustained over the last 50 years was due to HONEST LEGAL Americans working and being innovative in business!

4. IF the illegals culture was based on principles such as working hard, providing for their families, and making it on their own regardless of personal hardship or their own safety why isn’t their previous home country better? Why do they want to leave and come to America? OK, America is better! So, come here LEGALLY!

5. Industries such as home building has relied on legal American labor throughout our long history. Americans have never needed any ILLEGAL person to build our homes! Those who have hired illegals are now suffering in a lousy economy THEY helped to create due to breaking the LAW!

As for Sheriff Joe - he's a decent, honest, sincere, effective gentleman who knows that it is his duty to uphold the law! He knows it is his duty to do whatever is within the law to protect and serve. He is doing a great job serving Arizona citizens!

As for those who denigrate his tough talk and stance on crime – they are in league with criminal minds like the ACLU, (the American Communist Liers Union), who want to CHANGE America from being a democratic republic of people who uphold the law to a society who justifies illegal activity!

Joe is tough on crime alright. He locks up any animal abuser, no matter who they are! He locks up illegals, no matter what type of work they do! (They shouldn’t be here in the first place!) Joe locks up politicians, public figures, or anyone who BREAKS THE LAW! Those who HIRE illegals should be LOCKED UP TOO!

Sheriff Joe is all about upholding the law and AMERICANS ARE PROUD OF HIM! VOTE yes to SHERIFF JOE!

He has taken racial profiling to a higher level once again to promote himself as a leader. Why does he use the media for every event he is involved in? because he keeps the voters excited,keep showing the masses the work and verbally tease them, eventually they will believe him. A dictator in the late 30's did the same thing. This man and his Chief Deputy are a threat to the county. A federal investigation and indictments are welcome and needed.

To the blogger who called our organization an "Illegal Alien." Strange, we support strict enforcement of our federal immigration laws for obvious reasons, considering the violence and mayhem in Phoenix.

Regarding any conspiracies, look at Sheriff Arpaio's accusers like Gordon, who have continually pursued an agenda to subvert and undermine our federal immigration and other laws. That's a clear CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY per the statutes cited by Mr. Iglesias.

Certainly the enactment of Phoenix Police Order 1.4.3, which illegally restricts and constructively prohibits Phoenix police officers from reporting immigration crimes, resulted from a conspiratorial "meeting of the minds." Was Gordon involved? Is water wet?

The open borders crew always defeats its own cause by accusing Sheriff Arpaio of crimes that Gordon, et. al. commit all the time.

Why is it everyone who does not agree with Joe an automatic enemy? Joe is the one with the axe to grind. His profiling stunts against one race (since we are a border state) is a complete abuse of state law. What about the other races that come across the Northern Border as well as the South.Not all 12-20 million illegals are hispanic. I guess Joe is afraid of offending other races of non hispanic origin. Joe has not made a dent in his sweeps nor will he ever. It's the crime of the moment that arouses Joe. When amnesty comes next year, Joe will move on to the next major crime, homeless folks. That should be interesting profiling situation.

Why should any law abiding citizen in the state of Arizona, be afraid of the good sheriff, Joe Arpaio and his fine group of deputies? the answer is they should not be and are not!. The fact of the matter is, it is the non-law abiding people in this state and county of Maricopa that live in fear of the good sheriff and his men, as well they should. It is the illegals and those that profit from their illegality that cry the loudest when they see the good sheriff coming, (per Se) the employers whom hire these illegals, certain members of the Maricopa county board of supervisors and Mexican groups such as La-Raza. The truth is, sheriff Arpaio and his deputies are an inspiration to law enforcement nation wide and perhaps even world wide, as to what it takes to go that extra mile to enforce the law's he swore to uphold when he took the oath of office.

Arpaio is a one trick pony - immigration. He uses that issue to feed his ego and to gain power. He appeals to the lowest common denominator. Living here for over 50 years, I never would have believed that Arizona had so many people who were so easily led by a thug like Arpaio. He is, indeed, one to be ashamed of. I wonder how many people know enough about history to recognize the similarity between Arpaio and his mantra regarding illegals and another who had a similar hatred toward the Jews. I am not Jewish, but I do remember the tyrant, his tactics, what he stood for and how he took over the hearts of the people of a country. Sound familiar? If you look closely, you can hear the hob-nail boots marching in our county under the leadership of Arpaio. And you can read all about the lemings who fall right in line with his message of hate. I too do not like the idea of illegal immigration, but I am not willing to sacrifice freedom over his issue. The FBI must arrest, indict, and convice Arpaio for his eccesses before he does further damage to America. His way is NOT the American way -- it is the way of tyrants.

2) Go to the gym and where do you think all those white guys are from? How do you think that they pay for those Mercedes and nice cars they are driving? Maybe drugs? DO you think that they are here legally?
3) All those Mexicans are taking jobs that no one else want to do? But what about those TECHNICAL positions that we lose to H1 Visas? DO you think that is right.

Sheriff Joe is hardly a good guy according to a reliable new agency and government officials. He is not the only police department arresting illegal aliens. In fact, he has done less of that than other local departments. The biggest problem is not that Joe is or isn’t arresting aliens. The problem is, that a man is in that office who is being investigated by the FBI for overstepping his authority. Does no one understand what that means? It simply means that the government officials in Arizona have claimed that he is using his office to harass them for saying something about him, that he does not like. Can Arizona afford to let someone who is reported to act like a MOB BOSS stay as Sheriff of Maricopa County? Is this the kind of police we want? If this type of action would affect you or someone in your family, would you then be unhappy with Sheriff Joe? If left unchecked, this behavior could grow to the point, that everyone is affected.

Ever wonder why these people just don't file lawsuits, because they have no evidence and this way they spend taxpayers money.

People are complaining, but most forget the most important you don't do anything illegal or act suspicious, Sheriff Joe and the MCSO is a non-issue. Obey the law, and you will have no problems. Don't obey the law, and pay the price. It's that simple, folks. And, what goes around, comes around. So, if anything people are alleging against the Sheriff are true, then he will be subject the same laws he enforces. Nuff said...

We don't live in Arizona at this time, but we do plan on spending more time in the future. It is a Sheriff like Joe that makes me want to move to Arizona sooner. If we had more lawinforcement that would stand thier ground the country would be in better shape.

I have lived here over 39 years and I KNOW Sheriff Joe is doing a great job. Imagine if we did have have tent city and the great cost saving efforts he has done, our taxes would be 5 TIMES what they are. He is doing a great job and we applaud him for it. Thank you sheriff Joe for a job well done. If only we had other officials that did their job like Sheriff Joe, we would all be far better off. Immigration is a major problem all over the USA and people like Joe are needed to control the gangs, thefts and gangbangers. Our opinion.

This country can solve its immigration problems easily, introduce a system in which for a fee the so called illegals can be interviewed fingerprinted, photoed, and have a work status id, and would be able to come and go freely back to mexico or wherever. A government labor tracking system that allows a certain amount of specific labor occupations in depending on the need. Have all legitimate labor oriented businesses registered and monitored. If any law is broken by the registered person ,his or her work id would be suspended permanantly depending on the crime or violation the fees would be annually and would offset any cost incured by these laborers, Of course you would have to enforce the borders. This would curtail those who come to this country for illegal reasons. and of course learn english and the motor vehicle laws as citizens do.. What really is scary is not the labor jobs that are being taken by illegals but the high paying jobs being taken by those foreiners that are here legally it is said to be at least 1.5 million jobs by non american born citizens..

It is not about Sherrif Joe. It is about the preservation of our laws. There are many people here from other countries that came here legally. They abided by our laws. Many have been sent home when their visas expired. Those that came illegally, if they are working, are working under stolen social security numbers. Should they be allowed to stay? You may not like his tactics, but he is right to uphold the law. If he has broken any laws, that needs to be enforced as well by the Federal authorities, not by politicians. I appreciate his efforts to uphold the law and keep our city safe.

The Sheriff does not represent the views of moderate Arizonan's who want practical immagration reform and enforcement...should he feels the need to enforce the law as he was elected to do, he should focus more attention and resources on those areas where violence and property crimes are involved. His political games, abuse of power and misuse of funds is disgusting.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio reminds me of a very vindictive teenanger whom rebels when he doesn't get his way. I don't think he belongs in an official position. Maybe a deputy; but, not the sheriff. Illegals are here to better themselves just like when the first pilgrims sailed to practice freedom of religion. I am a native american and back then we were called savages, heathens, and treated with disrespect. Now, the mexicans crossing the border are called, "wetbacks" and illegal aliens. Over the weekend, there was the Neo-Nazi protest. Crazy, they are STILL calling the JEWS out all because in the United States there is freedom of religion. I think the Nazis need to move to a place that will allow that type of behavior. Here in the United States, we don't want any race to think they are superior over any other race. I think the state of Arizona because of Sheriff Joe is beginning to stir up citizens' feelings of racism. Instead of arresting mexicans and taking them back to Mexico and letting them go. The U.S. should have a no trespassing law for illegals. This way they are already in the judicial system and it will show up on their FBI file-background check. Then the Sheriff can have them transported back to the border of the country where they came from. Also, I think the country that the alien is a citizen of should pay the United States the costs of arrest, court costs, imprisonment, and food they ate while in the U.S. I think the United States should sue the country for the number of illegals that cross the border every month. This way, the other countries will begin making jobs, housing, and means of support for their OWN CITIZENS!!!!!! Us taxpayers are sick of paying for all of these so called raids. Why can't the United States stop interfering with other countries' wars. Us taxpayers are tired of paying for the war in Iraq also. Our seniors don't need to give up their little bit of social security and medicare they have to support a war they had no control over. May GOD bless America!!!!!!!!

Go Joe!
Joe can research all he wants!
That's a good thing.
If you are not a criminal you don't have any thing to worry about.
Any one taking my tax money better be squeaky clean and be ready to prove it.
We passed laws against illegal entry into the country not because we don't like people of a different color, after all we are all from somewhere else unless you are of American Indian descent,
but because we don't want other countries criminals here.
Especially bordering countries criminals doing crimes and running home when the heat is on. Then they come back, for more, when the heat is off!
Joe is doing what we pay him for.
In fact he is doing the biggest service a sheriff any where can do for his country! If you can't see that you are the ones with the problem! If every law inforcment agency would go by this simple rule our crime rate would drop by over 80% , a proven fact!
If you want, research him! I guarantee he is squeaky clean!
I for one do not want terrorists or any criminal hiding and committing crimes in my country. It's a tough job . It takes guts to do it! Is he realy the only one in our entire country? AMAZING!
I also think that the anonymous source that started this should be outed!
In your page asking for blogs KPHO 5, it says if you want your blog published put your name on it.
ps your page wont let me put my e address whats up with that?

I read about look how Sheriff Joe is wasting tax payer's money - HELLO! Look at what the people living here illegally area doing! They're wasting our tax money so our government can support them so they can get free health care without any actual intentions of paying for it by skipping out back to their country to seek out a new alias causing us to have to pay more money out of our own pockets for health care so that we can take care of our families legally! (continued)->
Why don't people look at it that way? Cause they're too close minded individuals that live in their own little made up happy little world without looking at the real picture. Open your eyes - if we went to war with Mexico, we would get our asses kicked guerilla warfare tactics style. What Jose landscaper would be by day then American citizen killer by night! And the mindless idiots would be asking how did this or how could this happen?

Wakeup people!
According to the Maricopa County Criminal Justice records, illegal aliens commit violent crimes at almost 3 times that of native born Americans.
- We spend about $1 billion annually in K-12 on illegal aliens.
- Arizona #2 in the World in kidnappings.
- Illegal alien abuse of our medical facilities has forced many to close.
- Illegal aliens use our deserts to dump their non-degradable garbage.
- Through increases in taxation, our representatives are stealing our property in order to redistribute our wealth to illegal aliens.
- In the U.S., 26 citizens a day are killed by the actions of illegal aliens (12 by stabbings and shootings and 13 by DUI and related crimes)
- Services we are required to provide to illegals are bankrupting our states and lowering our quality of life and quality of education.
- Tucson public schools use race based ethnic study courses to denigrate the U.S., inculcating loyalty to Mexico.
- Abetting illegals enables the culture of corruption they bring to grow: Kidnapping, ID theft, drug wars, murder, vehicular manslaughter, gangs, graffiti, drop houses, hostage taking, blackmail, rape and death during transport of illegals, home invasions.
- voting for sanctuary cities allows potential terrorists, who are illegals, to walk our streets with impunity (4 of the 5 leaders and pilots of the 9-11 terrorist were stopped by law enforcement and released and were in violation of our immigration laws. Had they been arrested 9-11 would have been averted.
