The next time Sheriff Joe Arpaio decides he wants his deputies to pull someone over based on the color of their skin alone, he’ll probably want to check with his new court-appointed monitor to make sure that’s a good idea. (The monitor will most assuredly say no.)

Ours is an operation, whether it’s the state law or the federal, to go after illegals, not the crime first, that they happen to be illegals. My program, my philosophy is a pure program. You go after illegals. I’m not afraid to say that. And you go after them and you lock them up.
Maricopa County, Az. Sheriff Joe Arpaio • As quoted in a federal court decision which ruled that the sheriff’s department illegally targeted Latinos in its immigration patrols. The accusations against Arpaio and his police department include accusations that officers pulled over residents for the purposes of checking their immigration status, along with a repudiation of the aggressive detentions people pulled over by police officers face. The quote above was used as evidence of improper conduct by the department. Arpaio denies the charges and his lawyer argues that the department received poor training from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Tent City” subjected to mass protest: Last night, thousands of people protested outside of the outdoor facilities that Maricopa County, Az. uses to jail its prisoners, a cost-saving measure implemented by Arpaio which many consider inhumane. Many of the protesters wore shirts and held signs that said “Standing on the side of love,” which is a slogan used by the Unitarian Universalist Association. The religious group was holding a convention in nearby Phoenix this weekend. (photo by Matt York/AP)

Obama administration, Sheriff Joe Arpaio go after each other

  • DOJ A couple weeks ago, it was announced that the Department of Justice would sue the police department headed by Maricopa County, Ariz. Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose practices were seen as abusive towards Latino inmates. It’s the second such investigation his office has faced.
  • Sheriff Joe Meanwhile, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is, over a year after Obama released his birth certificate, spending taxpayer dollars on a deputy who will focus on the cold case of whether or not Obama was born in Hawaii. ”It’s one deputy, so what? We have security issues, too, that I can’t got into,” Arpaio said. source

To help the president of the United States, let’s go to the microfiche. All you have to do if you’re the president is go to the Department of Health, or whatever, and release the microfiche.
Maricopa, AZ’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio • Taking birtherism to a dizzying, inane new height. We especially like how he couches it - “to help” President Obama. Arpaio has also formed what he referred to as a “posse” to investigate the President’s entirely well understood birth, and at a Tea Party Rally last month he said “…there could be a shock there somewhere that my guys came up with. I can’t talk too much about it. It’s in the process.” Just like Donald Trump’s investigators in Hawaii, huh? source (viafollow)

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio back to his immigrant-arresting ways

  • 1,000+ arrests from 18 different sweeps
  • 83 were arrested in the Maricopa County, Ariz. Sheriff’s Office’s latest immigration sweep
  • 68 of those arrested over the lastest two-day sweep were illegal immigrants source

» Other fun stuff they found: When the flashy/crazy (depending on your viewpoint) Arpaio goes after immigrants, he doesn’t screw around, and this time was no exception. On top of the dozens of arrests, his people found 725 pounds of marijuana and a bit of meth. Oh yeah, among the list of people helping out Joe with his sweeps? Steven Seagal.
