Arpaio Launches Crime-Suppression Sweep

This two-day sweep, which the sheriff says will be county-wide and will include his posse helicopter, will focus on locating human smuggling operations.

Love JOE! I get so sick of people's rhetoric about him! Blah, blah, blah, you're not legally here, we don't care what you have to say because we will vote him in again...get over it! I wish they would have put Joe in as Secretary of Homeland Security. Current administration, especially "president" ineffective, useless drivel mongers! I wish more people like him were in charge, I like people who actually READ the law and FOLLOW the law. Look at the laws, he is not violated any statute or act.

Out of control means illegal search and seizure. It is one of the principals our founding fathers had in mind when they drafted the constitution. You would think that Joe would have read it at least once in his long career. You don't harass citizens because you can, not talking about illegals although the same rules should apply. Abuse of power is abuse of power. If you investigate some poor slob because you don't agree with them on an issue, or you don't like them, then you are abusing you power, period.

Joe is a consumate politician that uses sensationalism and sacrifices others to gain notoriety. He needs to go. He is an embarrassment to Arizona joining in a long list such as Symington, Mecham, Keating, etc. Go Joe, Go...

P.S. The only thing that he should be commended for is his treatment of animals; but by know means should he hold a post caring for their welfare since he would probably load Mexicans in to the pound and spray them down with water and call it humane.

The main thing I will always remember about the Sheriff is the incident with the Neo Nazi thugs a few months ago. During a protest the Nazi thugs said to Joe, " We Got your back Joe." I remember that because as an African American, it brings back so many memories about the bigoted sheriffs of the southern US. Nazis in a police uniform. That incident taught me every thing I need to know about Joe the bigot Arpaio. I will never forget that. He can deny that he knew who those guys are all he wants. I know what I saw and heard.

I watched the 10:00 News last night. I saw the 2 illegals with 150lbs of Pot in their Car that were being chased by DPS and caused a collision with multiple innocent people. I saw the illegal Rapist had been caught, then I saw MCSO with a Van full of 18 illegals on I-17. What part of illegal are these people having an issue with? Sheriff Joe is not the guy who should be addressing this, but the fact is he seems to be the only one who is! I wish Joe would continue what he is doing, although I wish that he'd avoid the public attention at all costs. When you showboat, others will attempt to tear you down. If you just get it done, your support only grows.

Thugs come in many forms. Joe Arpaio, and those who support him, are not thugs nor are the vast majority of them racist. Far more who oppose him are racist bigots than the bulk of Arizona residents who support and respect our sheriff, and will continue to do so, despite the one-sided attacks on his policies.

Get over it. You're in the wrong and he's right in what he's doing. He's constantly attacked (because he matters) by a small, militant, racist minority of "goons" who wish they could matter more, but nobody likes or respects your poorly thought out, racist opinions. Oh, except the few, vocal, annoying people like you.

And yes, you should respect what he's done for the thousands of stray animals that he's saved from certain death.

Wathced the report on Iglesis tonight where the station said he is a conservative repluclican who was fired by Gonzales during the Bush term. My question is, how can someone be conservative and part of that mass firing. All the news said these were political actions, I assume against Democrats. It doesn't make sense. Channel 5 can you add this to your investigation, I would think Iglesis is libral attorney or perhaps he was fired for a lack of skill as the Sherrif says.

The illedals are law breakers from the first step on our soil. My grandparents came from Italy and Germany, they learned to speak english. They came here leagly. Also they blended into American life!

Arpaio appeals to the lowest emotion of the pack: hate. I don't like illegals being in our country any more than anyone else and I voted for Arpaio untill the last election, but he has become a thug. He is a thug who believes that he can do anything and get away with it. Why? Because he is appealing to those who have come under the spell of the mob.

I urge you who are blindly cheering for this Nazi thug to wake up and again support the rule of law. Cease feeding the ego of this egomaniacal twit.

Whether Sheriff Joe is upholding the law or not, is beside the point in my opinion. He is antagonistic, abusive, racist, and downright ignorant.

The KPHO "reporter" started her biased report on the Sheriff last night with the point that the Sheriff loves news conferences (about the MCSO's business) but hates one now because a judge ordered one for one of his employees. How about a judge ordering the reporter to apoligize to the Sheriff for her clearly biased reporting? Would KPHO go along with that? KPHO no longer reports the news, it tries very, very, very hard to slant the news in the liberal leftwing direction the so-called news media personnel loves to identify with with.

I applaud Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Being in the United States illegally is against the law. If I was in Mexico, Canada, or Russia illegally I would be arrested. Their jails are much worse than ours. A phoenix police officer was killed in a car accident by a drunk illegal alien. That is plenty reason to enforce immigration laws. I work in the medical field and have seen law enforcement let go illegal aliens and Border Patrol tell the officers to let them go. That needs to stop!

Joe styles HIMSELF as the toughest sheriff in America. Let's not forget his frantic phone call when he and his vastly overpaid chief deputy were being beaten up in a Scottsdale parking lot by a lone hairdresser. He likes publicity stunts that are self-promoting, but where are the statistics that show a decrease in major crime? He goes after people with zero political power because they make an easy name for him and increase his political capital. Nobody like crime, or criminals- so why not dehumanize them, humiliate them, to make Joe Arpaio look tough. Has it reduced recidivism in his jails? What's the real cost of food in his jail system? When it comes to fudging the facts with statistics, he's a practiced politician. He's in office, like most incumbents- because people are too lazy to find the facts. It's not that hard. And the news programs are all too happy to broadcast anything that will be good for ratings- facts optional. Anyone know the closure rate for homicides committed in his jurisdiction? It's among the lowest in the nation. His deputy violated a man's constitutional rights on camera in a courtroom in front of the "judge", and Joe backs the deputy. That says everything you need to know about his respect for the law. When you look beyond the publicity (and he spends lots of your tax dollars on that), and check the facts- he's not a good law enforcement officer. Evidently he's a very capable politician though. I guess he makes people FEEL safe, which in my mind is not nearly as good as making people actually safe.

One more thing? He constantly complains about his low budget. But how does he prioritize spending? It seems that whatever raises his public profile takes precedent: Maricopa county has spent lots of money defending this tough guy. Here's an excerpt from Wikipedia:
From 2004 through November 2007, Arpaio was the target of 2,150 lawsuits in U.S. District Court and hundreds more in Maricopa County courts, with more than $50 million in claims being filed,[38] 50 times as many prison-conditions lawsuits as the New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston jail systems combined.

I'm not impressed, and I am as afraid of him as I am of the criminals. The only human rights he respects, it seems, are his own.

Joe is today’s HITLER! Yes I said it! What did Hitler do? He rounded up Jews only because he blamed them for his failures during WWI! Joe is round up illegal immigrants just because of his failures as a sheriff and has nothing better to do! Instead of focusing on the ppl who come to WORK the jobs all most of YOU people don’t want to work in the first place....look for the real criminals
. The rapists, robbers, drug dealers, and so on. No I don’t agree that it is right that they come illegally....but what you do when your child begs you for food and you don’t have any money to buy some...? You do what ever it takes! Joe needs to stop...but it doesn’t matter...GOD will be the real judge at the end...I am just standing up for my community, my culture and for what is right. And remember...who worked their butts of for your huge 2 story house? Who most likely picked the fruits and vegetables you put in your mouth, who cleaned that office you called work? these are all jobs an average American wont do! And they...the immigrants take it! AND IF IT WERNT FOR IMMIGRATION THIS COUNTRY WOULD BE NOTHING!

This goes out to all of the people who claim the MCSO has helped to reduce crime in Maricopa County. Most of the reductions in Crime over the past few years are a direct result of the efforts of other local law enforcement agencies such as the Phoenix PD. Most other law enforcement agencies in Arizona view the MCSO as a joke and they see them as dangerous and undisciplined.

True integrity is holding strong to your beliefs and doing that which is "right" when faced with circumstances that could have either praise or negative repercussions. Like it or not, our land has laws and their enforcement ensures us our liberties and freedoms. They are not always convenient and they ALWAYS come with a sacrifice. This man does what he has been charged to accomplish -- to enforce the law. Not "his" laws, but those created by others. I like to think that I would have similar strength and courage to do what is, to many, an unpopular task. It's not personal to him -- law is law. I admire his strength.

He harasses public officials who stand up to him , he harasses citizens who oppose him, he violates human rights,he feeds food that is stamped "not for human consumption" to people in his custody and he needs to be stopped. All of you Joe supporters only focus on is the illegal aliens that he has rounded up but you over look all the bad he has gotten away with.

Sheriff Joe is simply one of the very few elected officials who is actually DOING HIS JOB! This is why he IS so popular with people who think that laws apply to everyone! It's the same reason why he is so hated by those who do not. I can't believe KPHO is conducting yet another investigation of him. Portraying themselves as having concern for Arizona citizens first and foremost but if that was ever true, how did the state's 2 billion dollar defecit happen? What have they been doing to hold those responsible elected officials accountable. What about the constant lip service about closing or guarding our borders...with little to no real action. KPHO, try a more worthwhile investigation that is truly in the law abiding public's interest.

I think the Sheriff is the best thing to happen to this nation and many other agencies could learn that we as Americans are not going to put up with crap anymore. This nation is falling a part because people are afraid and they sell out before they are everr willing to do anything about it. Sheriff Arpaio is one man who has not sold out our nation and he enforces strict laws. For that I want to say thank you and great job!! Well in tough times we need a tough man to do great things and the Sheriff is the man he is great at stopping crime. The jail he has puts fear in the criminals they don’t want to go to the “tent city jail” and wear pink jump suits. Sheriff Arpaio does a great job. With any one who does a great job there are always people he will have shown up not doing their job and they will always be there to try and bring him down. If Sheriff Arpaio were to run for Governor You bet I would vote for him! He does what it takes to drive the crime out and make our cities a safer place he is one of the few men left in this nation that follows the law and enforces it with out selling out. I would love for him to run for president because this Nation could be run so much better with a man like him in the White House.

The first question everyone should ask is what is the law? Then we should ask does Sheriff Joe's actions correlate whith the Law? Take for example: what are the laws if a person wants to immigrate to the United States of America? Now if a person immigrates to the United States, are they immigrating legally(according to the law's of the United States) OR are they immigrating illegally(not in accordance with the law's of the United States) if they are following the law they are a LEGAL IMMIGRANT, if they are not they are an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT!! Sheriff Joe is upholding the law! Adolf Hitler for those who did not take history in school committed genocide on the Jews. Examples of people who have committed genocide in history: Mao Ze-Dong(China 1958-1961 and 1966-1969, Tibet 1949-1950, 49-78,000,000 million people) Jozef Stalin(USSR 1932-1939, 23,000,000 million people) Adolf Hitler(Germany 1939-1945, 12,000,000 million people) how many Mexicans has Sheriff Joe committed genocide on? Answer Zero. My question to the media and the others who criticize Sheriff Joe are you scrutinizing him because he is breaking the law OR DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN AGENDA? This will DEFINITELY show people what type of INTEGRITY you have. This boils down to one thing OBEY THE LAW and there should be no problem!!

Now do we want a sheriff that is enforcing all the laws equally or one that will over look certian illegal activity. What if the illegal activity they choose to over look was child molestation or rape? Imagine how bad this would effect our society. It doesn't pay to have a sheriff turn a blind eye to any laws that are being broken, our society wil pay for it in the long run. This is comming from a man who is married to immigrant from mexico.

To the liberal media:

Thats a good question what is your agenda? you always try to make it look like the only thing Joe Arpio does is round up illegal immagrants. It probably doesn't support the liberal media's agenda to report the drug bust, drunk drivers, rapes, speeding, they just want to make Sheriff Joe look bad. They sould try reporting on things like this.

83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens.

75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.

40.1% of all inmates in Arizona detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.

29% (630,000) convicted illegal alien felons fill our state and federal prisons at a cost of $1.6 billion annually.

97.2% of all costs incurred from those births were paid by the American taxpayers.

53% plus of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.

IT looks like the real problem is we are being invaded by illegal aliens thats right I said illegal aliens THEY ARE LAW BREARS!!!! get a dictionary and look up the definition of ILLEGAL then look up the word ALIEN and you will find there is a reason why they put these two words together in the English language, then look up the laws of the USA on how to become a US citizen.

When a person comes to the United States of America illegally thats called BREAKING THE LAW the bible says follow the laws of the land, Romans 13:1, 1 peter 2:13-17, titus 3:1 so if these illegal aliens are breaking the law by coming to the US illegally the are doing evil and if Shriff Joe is enforcing the laws he is doing good.

All the legal American Mexicans I have ever met or talked to wish these illegals would go away and never come back. KPHO has created this with their always going to the defense of the illegals, no matter what you want to call them profiled or not. They come here and rape. steal, rob, kill and whatever and the do gooders never complain about that. What ever happened to honest reporting. You are supposed to give the news not make it the way you want. I have watched KPHO for years. I retired 42 years ago and moved here and now I am wondering what is wrong with me, watching your made up news. You say you talked to a past US Attorney about this. You do not realize what he stated is that he would file against the sheriff with "what you have told him",not that he would or would not if given all the facts, not just what you tell him. For him to make an honest opinion, he would have to do a proper investigation. Also, he is of Spanish background. Please go back to providing the news as it is and not what you want it to be for the illegals and the other small group that wants the attention. Thank you.

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!

When the people in charge disobey the law then the law is meaningless. Joe believes he is above abusing his power.

The illegels cost this country, ergo you and I, untold, enormous amounts of money. Have you ever read the statistics of how many times in one year the police respond to calls of kidnapping or other infractions that involve illegals?? The number is staggering? So many of them are some peoples definition of "REAL CRIMINALS"! Why is this okay with anybody?? It does not mean that I don't like to help people or that we are all uncaring, but being here illegal and all that goes along with it, is just plain wrong.

Illegal is illegal...meaning AGAINST THE LAW people. So he's following the law by getting rid of the illegal immigrants.

JOE is terrible!! I can not believe that we have so many racists here in America. Do people really think these people are illigal because they want to be?? Do Americans really know how they are able to come over here legaly? They have to have 10 grand in the bank, own property and have a job. If this was the case why would they come here in the first place. My friend is married to an illigal and has three children with him. He has never had so much as a ticket. There is no way for him to become legal even though they have been married for 5 years and have children together. At any given moment the family can be torn apart if Joe gets his way. Then what? This family has to go on with out the father and husband? Should she get on welfare since her bread winner was taken from her? Should she go to Mexico with him? This system is so screwed up. Joe should go after criminals who are causing harm to others. I am all for shipping the theives, rapists, murderers, drunk drivers ect back to whereever they came from, but family people, where is the justice in that? Are Americans really so naiive to think that all the criminals here are from across the border? Check the prisons guys, there are just as many black, white, asian ect in jail as there are illigals. Also, what to know how messsed up the system is? I knew someone who's boyfriend was put in jail for trying to kill her, he was illigal. He was put in jail and then released for work release and the state never found him again. Why would they release a illigal mexican? Why would they not deport him. People like that should be deported. Can the sheriff answer why this illigal was released into society? He was released from his prison. The jails response was, he must have really not been illigal. Why would someone say they are illigal if they really weren't. Facts are, the prison screwed up and now she has to be scared about him finding her. Why do they not send the real criminals back?

So the people that are not cooperating in the investigations aren't really obstructing justice?? And KPHO "powers that be" think that is how justice is served? Finally it comes out...the media has nothing to talk about so they SHOW us how our elected Officials are crooks. How clever!! Is anybody listening?? If someone is a criminal they should be stopped. Thank you Joe. I know you were trying to make me feel sorry for the people being investigated...but you made me think maybe they were being investigated THEN jumped on your bully pulpit "Whine Whine Joe is being mean to me" NOW that is news!! I do want to thank you for showing AZ we elect crooks...I guess Joe just fits right in there. Too bad he doesn't give a crap what you say. I won't be listening either. OK!! I will be listening but I won't be buying it.

Joe is a Hero. We are fortunate he has the background he does and won't be pushed around by the liberals and politicians.

I love hearing Mexicans complain because one of their girlfriends married an illegal guy and they subsequently had a family here. Now if the guy gets deported American Citizens are bad guys?!?! WTF?!?

Everyone in Phoenix knows that the standard Mexican illegal strategy is to sneak over the border and have some kids. That way the kids are citizens and then the illegal parents can complain how life isn't fair if they get busted. Very Perverse Logic. Unfortunately we've been letting it go on for so long that illegals think they have some sort of "right" to be here and to work this scam.

I don't think so. I obey the laws of the U.S. and everyone else should also. It's actually quite simple, if you don't have a progressive political agenda that you are trying to force on others.

Joe Arpaio and his Pose work hard everyday to protect our laws and up hold them. The illegal aliens should be in fear, they are ILLEGAL, just like any white man, black man or a Legally imigrated Mexican, if you break the law, Joe will pick you up and hold you accountable. The illegals should follow the legal guidelines to Imigrate to the United States. We have more people coming from other countries, again, they follow the legal process. When they become Americans, they can celebrate with no fear of breaking any laws. A illegal should not marry an American and expect to be able to stay illegal. If they start a family, they should remember, the father/mother is illegal and could be taken out of the country at any time. We all must remember, we should be accountable for our actions in life. If I break the law, I know what is coming for me. Knowing I could end up in Tent City, I always abide by the laws.

The Illegals hang out in parking lots all the time, they are waiting to perform work for a person that is NOT accountable for abiding by the law. They too should be arrested.

Yeah, yeah the illegals blah blah blah. That is not what is probably going to get Joe indicted. What is most likely going to be his biggest problem is the illegal harassment of American citizens. Those are the crimes he is guilty of.

Frankly neither I nor most other law abiding county residents have a problem with Arpaio getting illegals out of here. That is his job! He was voted into office to enforce our laws.

I love how those supporting other agendas will never admit that they feel it is fine to break the law. I'd appreciate someone with a brain explaining this position. Please educate me.

Let me be Clear - Illegals are just that - ILLEGAL. It is Arpaio's job to get them the hell out of here. I don't care if they are poor or not. They are illegal and they need to be gone. The fact that they are poor drives much of the crime we are seeing. Don't kid yourselves.

People that don't break the law don't have a problem with being questioned.

Frankly, law abiding citizens DO have a problem with Arpaio. He harasses and intimidates people who disagree with him. Freedom of the press and of expression are the hallmarks of a Democracy. Harassing people who are only guilty of disagreeing with you IS a crime. Abuse of power is abuse of power. Many of the people complaining are law abiding and guilty of no crimes. Try again BUM, or should I say Sheriff's Deputy?

@ Anonymous,

If in fact a bunch real citizens actually have a problem with Arpaio then you should organize a group hug to get your progressive, liberal selves together and vote him out of office. Good Luck.

Like most of your ilk, your numbers are relatively small but your mouths are exceedingly large. If you listen to the media you'd think that most of the county shares your views, when in reality it's just a small number of loud mouthed goof balls like you. I guess that's the beauty of democracy. We actually get to vote on it and your self-righteous indignation still only nets you one vote. Bummer.

It would be convenient for you if I was a Deputy. Truth is I'm just a citizen that obeys the law, pays my taxes and expects everyone else to. Maybe that's new age thinking for you and your girl scout troop, but consider it.

If it is not Joes job to catch these law breakers, then whose job do you think it is? And why aren't you going after that group for not doing their job? It sounds to me that you are against the sheriff for personal reasons, and must not be Tax paying Americans. Any patriotic citizen should be in support of someone stepping up to save our country from these law breaking people. They come here looking for a better life for themselves and disrespect our country by abusing our Government systems. Go get'em Joe!!!

I am proud to say, as a resident of Arizona, and as an American that it is a true blessing to have Sherrif Joe doing the job he does!
I support him unconditionaly as he has proven withtout a doubt to be relentless in the pursuit of justice, and in keeping our streets safe. His crime sweeps and the rounding up illegal imigrants, on top of making jails a less than comfortable environment for criminals is what we need. And he does it while being fair, a balance that will always cause controversy.
Sherrif Joe should be federally commended for what he does, all in spite of opposition, a true sign of a real leader, and a man with uncompromising values.
Thank you Sherrif Joe!!!!!!!!!

Joe, keep up the good work. I believe there should imagration checks just like DUI checks. Set them up all over the state. If you are here illegialy you should go to jail. Breaking the law is just that breaking the law! If you are illegal be prepared to go to jail.

No I took my ticket like man..the race card is being played past the point of logical reasoning. it boils down to this. You support Joe if you love whats right. You hate Joe if your an illegal, criminal, or an air headed tree hugger. GO JOE! WE LOVE YOU! - MCCAIN, NAPPY, AND THAT WUSSY MAYOR OF PHONEIX GOT TO GO..Im thinking to Frisco with that loser former Mesa Chief of Police- Good place for the whole bunch of them.

I just want to thank all of you that have posted positively about Arpaio. I've never met him personally and have no political agenda other than obeying the law, reducing crime and doing the right thing.

Keep posting your thoughts. Remember most of us regular tax paying, law abiding citizens don't have the spare time that the people that are trying to railroad him do, we're normally working. They only get the upper hand if we are too busy to let our opinions be known.

You folks make me proud to be a resident of our County and State.

I think every elected official in Maricopa county needs to be replaced, so we have have some people who are mature enough to handle the problems facing the City Of Phoenix out of the spot light of the media.

Shall we get started in the next election folks.

I agree every elected official should be replaced...except Romney and Joe..they are the best..I think there is one illegal alien who comes on here everyday spouting of hate for Joe..I had to laugh at the poster who said this

" I want more Republicans of the Mccain variety not the Arpaio types"

LOL LOL LOL Mcain has been senator here dor decades, and I cant think of one piece of legislation he has promoted that benefits this state..sure nothing regarding border security..McCain may have been a war hero at one time, but he is defiantely a sell out today. The onlly thing I remember this loser from is the land scandle he got involved in with Charles Keating

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.

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.

I would suspect that the act of treason against the lawful citizens of these United States and the willful obstruction of justice in Maricopa county, perpetrated by one ( Lydia Guzman ) will ultimately be the death of her. I also suspect, that her illegal Mexican friends will be more than happy to hold the all revered ( Car Wash ) in her honor, although she is apparently devoid of any honor whatsoever, to help with her funeral expenses.

Ready? Now pay attention...

family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now

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

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!
