"Remember, we are the melting pot of the world."
An anonymous commenter writes:
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.

I support Sheriff Joe 100% he is at least doing something about the illegal problem which brings crime. I have experienced the crime and vandalism first hand. Many illegal do not care about our laws....they already broke our laws and little to nothing happens to them. If they do something serious they flee back to mexico. I can certainly tell this channel does not support sheriff Joe....you must live in a better neighborhood. I support our sheriff and I hope he keeps arresting the illegals and he keeps fighting crime.

Your station is clearly telling one side of this story and it is the side you want to have heard. Your so called expert is a joke, his opinion means nothing at all as he is not judge and jury! I am angry that you continue to pick away at a man that is doing what needs to be done to clean up this county and state. I have very grave doubts as to the reliability of your coverage of this and other stories. Your station is becoming a big fat joke. Your news desk looks and acts like a group of fools. They giggle and joke around like a bunch of kids instead of the professional people they should be. Shame on you all.

When I moved here 4-1/2 years ago I didn't realize I was moving to a mobbed up state. Sheriff Joe is the equivalent to the Chicago police chief in the 1920's or 30's. I would not be at all surprised that the FBI investigaton turns up evidence of payoffs and more. The worse part about it is my tax dollars are paying for his salary. Please FBI get him out of Arizona.

He is out of control and constantly seeks publicity. Makes his own rules. Gets enough people to vote for him because some people read his nonsense and think he's the toughest sheriff in America. In this country he should have to follow rules like everybody else not make his own.

I think Joe is doing a good job. People can say what they want about the illiagles he arrest but think about it before you speak.It is ok for the FBI to arrest someone they think is doing wrong WELL Joe think's the iligeal peopleshould get arrested. If the FBI can break into houses becaues they think it is a drug house Jos should have the right to do the same with the illigels here. I say LEAVE SHERRIFF JOE ALONE AND LET HIM DO HIS JOB. ( GO JOE )))

I won't be so anonymous. My name is Chris, I'm a 34 yr old female. I lived in Phoenix for a year, long enough to get a good idea of how this Sherriff is- I compare him to a very well known man in history...that'd be HITLER! I guess his way of thinking is that everyone should go by the rules HE wants, legitimately or otherwise. HE seems to go to extremes to make sure that people that "look like they just came from Mexico" stay out of our state...does he think they're invading "HIS" area??! Speak against him & get punished? Sound familiar?! Sounds like Hitler to me.

I just saw you piece on Sheriff Joe on the 10 o'clock news. It's about time someone finds out about the truth about this crook. He is out of control. When a former Asst. Attorney General of the United States says he would seek indictment against him, the county has a problem on their hands that needs to be eliminated. I sincerly hope the Justice Department proceeds with charges against him. We as Taxpayers deserve better than having this haiter in office. People need to wake up and put their fears and haitred behind them and realize the man is just plain dangerous

I think SHERIFF JOE is the only man doing his job here! The only reason he is under the gun is because he stands against ILLEGAL imigrants being here. I support Sherriff Joe 100%. I am so tired of hereing about how unfair he is to them. Well I'm sick and tired of these illegals getting aid and medical all paid for by my tax money. I say ship them out and KEEP THEM OUT! CBS 5 used to be the only station I watched, but have changed my mind. The people broadcasting the news have become very biased and one of them is off the spanish discent.
You guys need to stop bashing sheriff Joe and start supporting him in his efforts to protect our county. Signed Ed

Why is it that there are people that are offended by someone doing the job they were elected to do? It's ludicrous.

The people that get offended are people defending illegal immigrants, prostitutes, drunkards, and democrats (yes I put them in there with the rest of the low-life law breakers). They are people that do not understand that you GET WHAT YOU EARN! If you don't want to be investigated DON'T BREAK THE LAW. Also, if you don't want to be investigated QUIT SUPPORTING THE PEOPLE THAT BREAK THE LAW. Simple...

It's too bad, though, that this post will not make the news. CBS 5 has already determined all by themselves that Sheriff Joe is guilty... and they will continue to report lies until it becomes so.

Too bad they can't be honest like FOX....

KEEP GOING JOE! Better yet, run for President! I'll vote for you in a minute! We need a President and not a pResident in the White House!

I am all for Sheriff Joe, every time he gets an illegal, that is one less person we have to support, wheather it be food stamps, welfare, dr., hospitals,and or etc.. I do believe he needs help with this, not misery. I feel all persons, (color, race and etc.) equal, but illegals do not want to be fair, they want to sneak over here and take all for free, yet they complain that they take jobs we won't, maybe that is because we have to work and live here with a SS card and pay taxes, food, rent, or house payt., utilities and etc.. Just show me what an illegal pays once he crosses that fence or how ever else he gets here.!!!!!!!!! Oh, the money we the people of the U.S. pay for the fence, the soldiers, and all else we pay just to keep you in your own state. If you were fair and played as US persons do we would not have to have all these problems, and you would not be after Sheriff Joe. When you all rally against Sheriff Joe, I would love to go thru all the people you have there and see how many are legals. Thank You Sheriff Joe, keep up the fight. But just play fair and you should be fine. Also keep your slates clean.

Sheriff is doing a great job...the only law enforcer who is enforcing the law. He has law suits against him too, but as far as I know, they were dropped. As "investigative Reporters" have you ever check out the allegation the Sheriff has made against these people. The worst run area is Phoenix, with Gordon as Mayor..not much is enforcer in his area and I believe he has one of the highest crime rate.

It's stunning to me that this guy has such passionate support ANYWHERE in the United States and it is dismaying that that support comes from my own community. He's fanatical, unstable, and has a serious mean streak. I appreciate a local news team that will actually report on his behavior - I think he has effectively intimidated reporters as often as he has all other people who dare to question his behavior or motives. He is a scary loose cannon and we deserve better.

This is just Corrupt politicians mad because they got caught with their hand in the cookie jar. he can investigate anyone who needs investigating, if you didn't do anything wrong then there is nothing to investigate. The same way there is nothing to investigate about Joe. Sherrif Joe doesn't care what people think. He just does his job the best he knows how and upholds the law no matter what the fall out might be. I praise him for his immigration strategy. It's not hard to catch illegals, our goverment state and federal has failed us in this reguard. I've already boycoted Fox news and cbs KPHO is next. This kind of rediculous attack is stupid. Almost seems like a bait tactic, so that if for some reason joe investigates someone from the station in the future they will be like see i told you. Even though the media is one of the most corrupt groups in the country.

Sheriff Joe,

The greatest sheriff that any county could ever wish for. We have too many people that can't stand the sheriff doing his job to protect all of us in Maricopa County. Too many peope in high places that don't like him arresting illegal criminals. Yes, we might be the melting pot of the world, but this great counntry has laws to be inforced and our wonderful Sheriff is doing just that. Until the laws are changed the mayor and the other open border idiots need to keep their mouth closed. I watched the one sided report tonight and knew that (5) is an open border group. Sorry it's not going to work we love Sheriff Joe.

You are doing a great job of getting the truth out. Obviously some of the comments are from some of the Sheriff's cronies. He must have all his deputies sending in nice tidbits about how wonderful he is. Wake up people the man is one notch from being a dictator. He has to be removed before he gets further out of control. Have your people be careful. The man is capable of anything

It amazes me how Joe Supporters stay behind this man even after the truth is out. He's not only costing us tax paying citizens millions (in just law suits), he's create Phoenix into a safe haven for violent criminals, he's ignoring all the outstanding warrants, he's increasing his response times to life threatening calls...he's simply abusing his power, and continues to do so. But his supporters don't care as long as they see one less Mexican. I bet their little Timmy won't be going out to replace that illegal immigrant any time soon.

I'm weary of Sheriff Joe controversy.

But what worries me most these days is the costs of all the litigation surrounding him. Hiring DC lawyers to pursue appeals of court denial of his fishing expeditions? Wake up, Maricopa County! Time for Joe to go.

Sheriff Joe is the only one in this whole country who is doing something about illegal immigration! Isn't it enough that all our jobs are going elsewhere? So what if they wear pink shorts. It's a disgrace to drive the streets of Mesa and see all the illegals standing on street corners.

When are all the liberals going to wake up?! The days of the wild west are over. I say stop all immigration before our country is overrun by islamic extreemests like England and France. Do we have to have another 9/11?
Our ancesters entered this country the right and legal way. We have enough people, but not enough jobs.

They work for peanuts in Mexico on our displaced jobs and they still want to come here and take what's left here. Enough is enough! Let's take a long and hard look at who's entering this country. It was also built on Christianity, but already they want to stop anything with the mention of God! Ever heard of Sodom and Gamora? This country will fall like ancient Rome if it continues like this.

Sheriff Arpaio is the only one doing his job. Yes, we are a nation of immigrants but most of them came here legally. Sign your name at the border and then come in. Big business doesn't want a worker program becase they would then have to pay the workers a decent wage and wouldn't be able to pay them under the table.
The mayor is a joke. The deaths of many people
caused by illegals is on his watch. We don't get to select what laws to enforce. If you don't like a law, then change it, don't ignore it.

Sheriff Joe cares nothing about Arizona and is only interested in his own agenda. It is about time that Joe is made to answer for the crimes he has committed against the people of Arizona. Joe has cost the citizens of Arizona millions of dollars in suits and violated the rights of anyone that disagrees with him. The only thing Joe has that he can say that he has done is work on the immigration issues, but at what cost! How many of the citizens of Arizona real know the real damage done by Joe Arpiao and the rights of the many good Arizona citizens he has violated! Why has it taken this long for someone to say that what Joe is doing is wrong, does it take him violating the rights of our mayor and Arizona Atorney General before anyone is willing to do anything!

If you really want to hold Arpaio accountable for his abuse of power and the price that a particular family is paying for having opposed Joe Arpaio consider the political prisoner, Patrick Bearup, who has been falsely tried, convicted, and sentenced to death on the testimony of those who actually committed the murder. All this was accomplished by the Sheriff's Dept in collusion with the County Attorney's Office. That such as this could happen in America is unconscionable.

I hope you continue your investigation of Sheriff Joe. Maybe he will finally be exposed for what he really is. I have read most of the articles on his targeting of those who have opposed or investigated him and I feel he is guilty of retribution to them. He and David Henderschott also appear to be involved in some shady financial dealings. He is nothing but a big pompous ass using fear and intimidation to suppress opposition and should be removed from office. I do, however, approve of his arresting those who are in this country illegally, but this may be beyond the scope of his duties.

I note that Morgan Lowe asked the federal prosecutor whether he knew Sheriff Arpaio, but he didn't ask whether the Spanish-surnamed fed whether or not he knew Mary Rose Wilcox. And by the way, I also note that the fed is not a jury of our sheriff's peers. It is obvious that KPHO has a vendetta of some kind against the sheriff. What are you hiding, KPHO?

So, the FACT that every news source in the valley has come out against the Joke means that they are out to get him? Now that's funny. They are all just reporting the facts! And what about the report by the conservative Goldwater Institute, "Mission Unaccomplished".
Anyone think that Arpaio is doing his job and doing it well, is clearly uninformed and unable to accept the reality of the situation.

Congratulation KPHO-5 for a job well done! Joe Arpaio has been a hot topic here in the valley for many years. He operates with his "no impunity" theory; and until now, it has worked.

You have shown the citizens of this county another side of the Sheriff in which he acts like he is a "god". As you reported, get in his way and he will stomp on you (or at least have you arrested and your reputation smeared).

I've worked many years here in Phoenix as a Bail Bond Agent. I have seen too many instances of his "Information Management" system being wrong with great hardship to those who should have been released on bond but weren't. I've also seen instances where they were released without the bond posted (hmmmm not possible according to the jail). Just another few ways Arpaio's influence extends out to others.

His actions affect too many of us, negatively. All I know is that HELL NO, JOE'S GOTTA' GO!

I am proud of KPHO for showing the truth about Sheriff Joe Arpaio. When he first was elected his 'big publicity machine' was the annual Sheriff's Reserves protecting the malls during the holidays, which was a good thing. Then he figured out he could generate publicity for deadbeat parents roundups and animal cruelty, again good things to go after. He became a 'celebrity' for his toughest sheriff stance and we saw warrants and criminal investigations begin to drop off as he determined going after a rapist or murderer would not warrant as much publicity. Now with his illegal alien roundups he has just become another 'fake celebrity' who it has all gone to his head with the problem being that he is destroying anyone who says anything negative about him. KPHO I applaud your effort for the last year in investigating him and wish you had gone further by providing information on how many lawsuits he has cost this county and how many dangerous criminals and or warrants he has put away. Also we deserve to know the truth about the $$ shelled out to the Honduran government, his land deals and last but not least his campaign contribution fund.

The issue of illegal immigration is not, and should not, be the cart" that carries Sheriff Joe through the next election. Illegal immigration is not his "job". It is the job of the federal government, and every illegal immigrant that crosses the border serves as yet another failure of the federal government to fulfill its mandated responsibility to secure and protect our National borders.

Sherif Joe should be judged on his abilities and efforts to accomplish the parameters' of what "his job" entails, i.e. his running of the county jail system; establishing a working rapport with all of the various law enforcement agencies which the sheriff's department must interact; avoiding costly litigation as a result of the actions by the sheriff's department; and how many "unserved" arrest warrants are sitting around gathering mold, while Sheriff Joe and his "lap dogs" Hendershot and the county Attorney continue to abuse their authority pursuing their private agendas. We can no longer afford Joe.

Why is it when we go into Mexico they demand we respect and obey their laws and then cross into the United States of America and we still have to respect them and allow them to break our laws and then cry foul when they get caught? Why is it alright for them to use stolen identities to take jobs away from United States born citizens and at a savings to employers? Why is it alright for an illegal immigrant to steal one of our identities and not have to pay, yet when a legal United States born citizen steals someones identity then its wrong and they need to be punished? Why is it when we hire or elect someone to do a job and they do it according to our laws they are wrong, and then when they don't they are still wrong and need to be fired or impeached/ousted? Let one of you or one of your family or friends get hurt or your identities stolen and have to prove you didn't buy that house, or vehicle or apply for any of those credit cards. Let you or one of your family members or friends for that matter have to prove you are the rightful owner of your name and that your birth certificate is the original legal one; that you are not currently working another job or have to pay additional income tax because the IRS was notified that you earned more than you claimed on your last tax return. Then lets see how thankful you'll be that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is doing his job to serve and protect us. Thank you Sheriff Joe Arpaio. My family and I are grateful and very thankful to you for standing up and enfocing our state and federal laws that our other elected officials, state and federal, are unwilling to support, unless it benefits them. Most of our elected officials state and federal would not be in office if it weren't for the thousands of illegal immigrants who are voting using ballets that are in a language for them to read, which is agaist our voting laws, so naturally they want them to stay, its the only way they can stay in office because the rest of won't vote for them. Sheriff Joe isn't afraid to do the job that we legal voters hired him to do the day we elected him into office. I have to chuckle because he was doing the same job during his previous term as sheriff and was still re-elected. What hypocrites some of you are.

I sent my concerns for biased reporting to KPHO earlier this week and never received a response so I doubt if this message will make the blog's front page either. Sheriff Joe Arpaio has my support and everyone I know. KPHO has an agenda against him and every commercial they run and report they deliver shows it. The only people speaking out against sheriff Joe are those who want to continue to break the law or bleeding heart liberals with their own political agendas. Like many others who voiced their opinions here, I am not a supporter of amnesty, do not believe that just because illegals can sneak into our country they deserve a free ride and it is not racial profiling to arrest those breaking the law because they are not white.

When this country was founded and for the next few centuries, we welcomed people from all walks of life and rightfully so. They came through Ellis Island the right way. What a great country was founded. Isn't it odd that during this building of our country, we had very few Arabs and Mosques and that our country was built on Crhistianity? I'm telling u our country is going to hell in a handbag. Don't mention God, don't hurt anyones feelings by profiling him or her. England and France are finally realizing it is too late. Hey, homosexulaty is great now. Wearing a turbin is ok. Sneaking across the border and living off my and my parents and grandparents social securtiy is ok. Wal-Mart is moving more smoot in its stores and removing anything Christian based. Why are so many intelligent people so ignorant? Get off your ass government and close the borders. We don't make anything anymore, in part thanks to nafta and our previous presidents. We are borrowing money from China! Years ago, we needed homesteaders and new people and welcomed them with open arms. Now it is time to scrutinize everone who come through Ellis Island, and Ellis Island only! Keep you cheap laber in Mexico also. We need good paying job for our citizens, but these people are willing to do anything and everything for very little in wages. Good for a few greedy companies, but not for the people as a whole.
As for the American indian, God bless them, but I'm afraid they'd be still living in tepees if it weren't for the white man. As for the blacks, they fought in the civil war and all the other wars and have worked their way into society and have paid the price. They earned their right for the freedom they have. They have as much right as the white man. The chinese helped build the rr's, etc.

When Joe Arpaio first ran for office, he did so on a platform of serving ONLY one term amd "only arresting the criminals who deserve it". Since his election, he has followed the Federal pattern of doing something outrageous every thirty days or so, just to get his name in the paper. Pink underwear, green baloney, chain gangs, on and on. He tried to make narcotics enforcement his forte early on, due to his DEA background, but it didn't go very far because other agencies were better equipped to handle this. He even tried prostitution sweeps, but found that it took local ordinances to enforce and he isn't authorized to do that. He was successful with his shopping mall patrols during Christmas, but that is seasonal. Finally, he found his hot button with immigration and he has riden that horse for all its worth. Meanwhile, he has cost taxpayers millions in legal expenses and damages over his tactics, and this Gestapo tactic he uses against his critics is so outrageous, no on seems to know what to do about it. If anyone were to look into his office's expenditures and contracts, I'm pretty sure they would find a lot of dirt... kickbacks and sweetheart deals. How did Dave Hendershot manage to obtain a brand new high end motorcycle, just after the Sheriff bought a bunch of the same brand, and after he was just emerging from bankruptcy?

I see that most of the posts are signed "Anonymous", as is mine, but it seems to be the only way I can submit this post, therefore I will state my name in advance. My name is Joseph Read and I live in Prescott Valley. That being said, I challenge Sheriff Joe to come investigate me. I moved to Arizona 3 years ago from San Diego and have tried very hard to find the positive side of living here. It has been a challenge to say the least. Education is in the dump with more cuts to come, nazi speed cameras everywhere you look, and a bunch of yay-hoos running around with pistols on their side "just because they can". I've lived for 50 years and never felt the need to carry a gun, but watching the evening news, I guess it's necessary in Phoenix. Wow, maybe if there was a Sheriff putting criminals behind bars instead of playing Border Patrol, a personal weapon wouldn't be necessary. Here's my point. At first I truly believed that Sheriff Joe was doing a bang up job. He was achieving what no other agency was willing or permitted to do. I don't want illegals here any more that any one else, but where is that line that separates law enforcement from self appointed celebrity. Joe's ego is a runaway train, his mouth is writing checks that his body can't cash, and it WILL catch up to him. Joe denies profiling, yet a few days ago on a KPHO news story; he was asked if he goes after any other cultures other than Hispanic. He said "Sure, in fact we just got some Chinese coming up from Mexico". Joe, let me ask you a question. If I wanted to find a Swede, I sure as hell wouldn't be looking in Argentina, so why are you looking for Chinese in Mexico? Maybe your tunnel vision won't allow you to look any other direction. Joe defends over and over again that he isn't profiling, and I really wanted to believe that, until tonight. On the KPHO evening news, a story ran about Joe in California for some reason or another. Someone ask him why he made his inmates wore pink underwear. His reply, "because they don't like it! They may like it in California, but not in Arizona". I am offended. I am appalled that a public servant who swears that he doesn't profile would make such a statement. Joe-you don't realize how incredibly stupid you made yourself look on TV. You couldn't have stuck your foot in your mouth any deeper if it were rammed in there with a Mack truck. I think he owes the State of California a formal public apology for insinuating that everyone in California likes pink underwear, I think that Joe needs to be investigated, why? Well, I don't profile people but I think Joe has a Dixie flag hanging in his garage and is a card carrying member of the KKK, I have no proof, it's just an opinion, but based on my opinion I think I'll run amuck with it and spread the allegation. Why not? It works for Joe! We just ended a Presidential term where the President and Vice President wrote the rules to suit their personal agenda; just like Joe....look at the condition they left the country in. Just something to think about.

We used to be the melting pot of the world but our politicans,etc have changed that with their diversity and political correctness. The Sheriff is correct in enforcing the immigration laws as he is doing and he may be the only law enforcement official doing it in the US. Our soldiers at Ft Hood were the victims of political correctness at the highest levels. The shooter should have been kicked out of the Army at the very least and maybe even more since he corresponded with a known terrorist. Our FBI and Army and maybe even the white house backed off because he was a muslim and they didn't want to stir the pot. Well, they are now running around like rats trying cover themselves because they are the reason that those soldiers died and were wounded since they could have stopped it long ago.
I hope those that were responsibile have nightmares the rest of their life. The Sheriff of Maricopa County should be elected to a higher office because he does not care about being politically correct just doing what is CORRECT.

I believe that people who come to America illegally are breaking the law. The law is the law whether or not you think it is right or wrong. However my opinion of Arpiao is not a high one. I think he is a nasty person with a very evil streak. Whatever he can do to bring more money to his department. Buy more helicopters, buses, and fancy vehicles to parade around in from media event to media event. Joe, it is far past your time here in Maricopa County. You think you are above the law??? You feel like the investigations you are doing are legit? Maybe some, but what ever happened to the investigation about your hidden investment properties? What are you going to do when you get all of the Mexicans out of Maricopa county? Who are you going to go after then???

I personally don't like Joe I think he's a waste of money and does nothing to make our county safe by arresting hard working immigrants is not making us safer. The day I see any of the Zetas members or any other cartel arrested by him that's when he'll get my vote. But for now he has to go I don't my money to be wasted on him. And for everybody that keeps saying immigrants don't pay taxes they do they HAVE TO must of them don't filed taxes at the end of the year so where does the money go to? everybody in this country have to pay taxes legal or illegal cause they don't ask for your legal status when you go to the store right? so stop saying they don't pay taxes that's a BIG LIE JOE HAS TO GOOOOOOO

What!! is it about this man that makes him so damn GOOD!! at what he does? Thank God the county sheriff is an elected position and not an appointed one. If the county sheriff were an appointed position, Arizona would be number one in the nation in political and immigration crime. As it stands now, Washington is number one in political criminals and Texas in illegal Mexicans. Thank you!! sheriff Joe. J.W. Simms.

I applaud Sheriff Joe. I am not sure why people don't understand that "Illegal" means "Illegal". It is not about what we feel, it is about the law. Sheriff Joe is upholding the law. I would like to see us
come to a resolution to this problem. Sheriff
Joe is keeping me safe.

I don't understand some of you people and the way that you are thinking. You just don't seem to get it! This country is being drained finacially because of the immagration problem that is happening. They come over here plop their butts done and expect the American people to cater to them. I'm not picking on the Mexican people, I'm talking about ALL illegals. From South America, Central America, China, Cuba etc.
My family came from all parts of Europe. They came here worked hard and became American citizens. Just like many of you out there, were did you come from?
Sheriff Joe is doing a Great job and I hope he continues doing the job he is doing. We need more people like him that have the guts to handle the job and follow through.

Good job Joe!

Sheriff Joe keep up the good work. The media is worried that if you keep doing your job they will be laid off due to low crime rates to report on. Keep going Joe.

Kpho in my opinion is pathetic if you notice none of the other news stations are trying to crucify arpaio for the job he's doing, maybe it has something to do with the majority of their ratings coming from the minority vote that doesn't support our sheriff. It might seem like they are trying to "report" on these so called injustices being commited but the way I see it they are just trying to boost ratings by turning on the Arpaio hating minority in maricopa county. As of November 23 2009 Joe Arpaio"s approval rating was 61 percent(courtesy of The Washington Independant) just curious what other official in the last 20 years has been in that kind of demand? So for all of you left wing liberals that don't agree with Arpaio's methods take it up with your congressman oh wait he's a Arpaio supporter as well looks like you're screwed then because most of us want him here. And to KPHO:

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.
WELL YOU STARTED ALL THIS WITH AN ANONYMOUS PERSON SPOUTING HATE AND ANTI-SEMITIC RHETORIC.
YOU ARE THE HIPPOOCRITS AND YOU ARE HELPING TO HIDE CRIMINALS IN MY COUNTRY.
I THINK JOE SHOULD LOOK IN TO YOU KPHO 5'S MOTIVES.
WHY WOULD A LOCAL TELEVISION STATION WANT FOREIGN CRIMINALS IN THE COUNTRY?
MAYBE BECAUSE YOU VALUE MONEY MORE THAN COUNTRY! As ratings equal money?
TALK ABOUT A DANGER, TO THE COUNTRY! PRINT THAT!
Tom
ps your page wont let me put my e address whats up with that?

If you were to look at arrest records for drug related offenses, you would be amazed at how many drugs are sold by "illegal aliens". I think Joe has got it figured out. Send the illegals back and keep them out and the drug trafficing will go down. Channel 5 will never be on in my home again. They are so biased in their reports it's crazy. What ever happened to reporting the news? We don't care about your predjuces. This one is easy for me.... where's the remote?

I wish more people would stand behind the efforts of Sheriff Joe and support his willingness to deal with the real ( and unpopular) issues within our communities. He is enforcing our law. It's not his own law. it's the law of our land. If the illegal immigrants want to live within the United States, then why do they want to turn this into another Mexico with their flags & their language? It's just simply a fact: the illegal immigrants bring much crime and are bleeding our health and social services system.

Poor Sherrif Joe,

He does what he swore he would do when he took office, up hold the laws of this state and county. Yet when it comes to the modern day slaves(illegals) he is fighting not just the illegals, but the system that uses them and wants them here. Yes the system that runs our country(money) wants the modern day slaves here.

If you want to learn more about the systems in charge of us, check out my over one hundred blogs at www.myspace.com/unitedmajorityofamerica

Do you agree that being here illegally is breaking the law? If yes, how should it be enforced?

Is driving above the legal limit against the law? Well yes. Are setting up DUI check points profiling? Well, yes I guess but we all think it’s OK. Shouldn’t all the people who like to drive impaired be up in arms against the Sheriff office? Well, I guess they could, would you support them? Well no, they are breaking the law. Our laws need to be enforced. I propose all law enforcement agencies setup road blocks to check if we all are here legally. If not we go to jail.

You have two families: "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal".

Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.

Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes
$25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number,
and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".

Ready? Now pay attention...

Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000..00 per week, or $52,000.00
per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has
$31,231.00.

Jose Illegal: $15..00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00
per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has
$31,200..00.

Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his
family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now
has $24,031.00.

Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and
local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has
$31,200.00.

Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or
welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000..00 per
year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.

Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps and
welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe
Legal now has $9,631.00.

Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose
Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal
still has $ 31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for insurance. Joe Legal
now has $7,231.00.

Jose Illegal says, "We don't need no stinkin' insurance!" and still has
$31,200.00.

Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline,
etc.

Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities,
gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.

Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after
work.

Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school. Joe
Legal pays for his children's lunches while Jose Illegal's children get
a government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal's children have an after school
ESL program. Joe Legal's children go home.

Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services,
but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

Do you get it, now?

If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens...

You are part of the problem!

It's way PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!
