You would not treat people this way. Don't let him get away with it either.
How much longer will he be allowed to humiliate and degrade working men and women whose only real crime was to seek a better life?

Some of you may have seen the news that Sheriff Joe had several hundred chained immigrant detainees marching through the streets of Phoenix.

Below is a link for an online petition you can sign to ask the new Attorney General,
Eric Holder, to investigate Sheriff Joe for civil rights violations.

Please forward to others to stop this repulsive, inhumane treatment.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Law Enforcement Out of Control

We told you about how self-proclaimed "America's Toughest Sheriff" Joe Arpaio launched a reality television show for the New Year. How the FOX network gave a giant megaphone to a public official known for his anti-immigrant antics and racial profiling.

Well, now it gets worse.

Joe is on a rampage, rounding up immigrants and shipping them off to separate "tent cities" surrounded by electric fences, according to

The Maricopa County office announced the project in a statement, "Arpaio Orders Move of Hundreds of Illegal Aliens to Their Own Tent City." We'll let you draw your own conclusions about why Joe wants to segregate immigrants from the rest of his inmates, but here's what you should know about Joe:

  • 2,700 lawsuits have been filed against Arpaio

  • Joe prioritizes immigrant sweeps over prosecuting felons (there are 40,000 outstanding warrants in his county)

  • The Sheriff discriminates against Latinos, as found in an Arizona Republic study

  • Joe even staged a phony murder plot against himself!

For more information:

The Immigration Policy Center just released a fact sheet that shows the high cost of the Sheriff's antics.

America's Voice has a fact sheet with highlights of the Sheriff's record.

Demand an investigation from the Department of Justice - ask 10 friends to sign this petition today!

What part of "illegal" immigration do you not understand? If my wife can immigrate legally, so can everyone else.

Hard to know where to start to counter-act the simplistic, and I may say, hypocritical way your side think and talks.

What is legal or illegal is not necessarily fair or moral, the tragedy on the immigration debate is that it is not conducted in a comprehensive way, your side doesn't want to talk about the economic causes of immigration or how the corporations, which are supported by your side and republican friends, are the causes of it, they are the ones who pay to misinform you about their real goals of making money by 'inviting' cheap immigrant labor to deflate wages and weaken organized labor so they can laugh at your ignorance all the way to the banks they also own.

As for your "If my wife can immigrate legally, so can everyone else.", really.

The fact is that some people can, but not everyone else, please make my day and tell me that your comment was not a fib.

That should be easy for you to do, it should come naturally after so many years of doing it.

Wow, I make 2 posts and you know everything about me. That is pretty impressive.

"What is legal or illegal is not necessarily fair or moral"

Hmmmm liberal moral realism at its finest. What's fair and moral is everyone come over here legally. I believe anyone that is fair minded could agree with that unless they have another agenda with infecting the country with illegals.

Oh and dont worry about the unions. Obama will make sure everyone is in a union whether they want to be in one or not.
