Sheriff Defies Feds

The Huffington Post
reports that Sheriff Arpaio and his deputies have been stripped
of their ICE agent status. "Arpaio was defiant... "I don't need
the feds to do my crime suppression to opt to arrest illegals. I
can do it without the federal authority, and I'm going to
continue to do it. It makes no difference. It helps us. Because I
don't have to do all the paperwork for the feds, number one. And
number two, I won't be under their umbrella, their guidance. So I
will operate the same way, nothing is going to change.""

(a) Dear Editor:
I just finished reading Robert  Gittilson's piece on immigration
reform. (10/06/09 ID article) I will be a fan for life, what a
writer; the article puts everything into words that I can only
think about. I have been a conservative my whole life, up until a
few years ago. I blindly voted for George Bush twice. I am so
ashamed. I hope somehow I will be able to atone for my ignorance.
I abhor legislation out of fear, rather than out of strength.
Thank you Robert and thank you ID.
John J. Brannigan

(b) Dear Editor:
Regarding the piece on "Olympics and Immigration", (10/06/09 ID)
I could not agree more with the fact that entering the USA is
nothing short of a nightmare.  I have been a legal resident here
for 9 years, and have all the paperwork, Visas etc to prove it.
I have never travelled anywhere without carrying this whole file
with me, for fear of "the great mean immigration officials".
Every time I have returned from any travel, often with my
children in tow, we have been interrogated like criminals.  Even
after a quick 4 day cruise to Mexico we get the glarry eyed
interrogation, and a hundred questions.  On the other hand, I
travel abroad extensively, and have had no issues at any other
border post in any other country.  I am not a supporter of
illegal immigration in any way, and must ask the question:  Can
we lay the blame for border interrogation on the shoulders of the
illegals?  Probably, as it is usually the misconduct of the
guilty that cause the biggest problems for the innocent!
Linda Cogill

(c) Dear Editor:
Thanks a Lot, ID, for your contribution to the dissolution of
America by promoting excessive, irresponsible immigration,
without limits. ID has abused and misused the freedom that
America has graciously allowed it and has betrayed citizens and
traditional American ideals. Where do you suggest we migrate when
America has fully been destroyed?

  1. Brittancus's Avatar
    The usual suspects are defying--THE AMERICAN PEOPLE--and are implicit in this weakening of our laws is Janet Napolitano, head of the Homeland Security. We all must realize with BLANKET AMNESTY on the immediate horizon, their using all the stops to collapse anything that smells of immigration enforcement. Anybody who has investigated the Democratic leadership would slowly weaken 287 G, that gave regular police training to question suspicious people about their immigrant status? Arizona County Sheriff Joe Ariapo was sure to be marked by Napolitano, because his deputies were having a incredulous success rate, in apprehending illegal aliens in his jurisdiction. However the corrupt lawmakers around the nation, have not been able to crush E-Verify? AS YET?

    By now most business are conscious of the federal program E-Verify? It distinguishes US citizens and legal residents from illegal labor. Although not seamless, it has a 99.6 success rate and obviously will overtime become even more constructive to business that believes in the "Rule of Law." Opponents in both the business sector and even on Capitol Hill have released a torrent of abuse against the application. That includes its function is blind to counterfeit documentation and spurious ID and that even legal individuals can be rejected? SO--YOU GO TO THE SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE TO BE EXONERATED? ONLY ILLEGAL WORKERS WILL SHUN TURNING TO SSA FOR RESOLVING THIS ISSUE.

    The open border conspirators are losing, as they did in a federal Maryland court a week previous. As E-Verify are perfected it needs to become a permanent tool in the incomplete arsenal of immigration enforcement. It needs to reach out to every company, big and small, in our country and every individual who works there? E-Verify eventually will expel foreign national from the workplace, without financial appropriations on a large scale. These people will self-deport when they cannot be hired anymore. Businesses facing huge fines and prison will be the ultimate deterrent. In time it will save our ailing schools, health care, home mortgages and government welfare system. Look to NUMBERSUSA for honest an answer, that includes costs to taxpayers for the new blanket AMNESTY. Which Senators and Republicans are anti-US American Worker and their immigration grades?

    For an example Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has a miserable enforcement grade of "C-". He was out to erase E-Verify, under fund the border fence from the beginning of the Democratic administration. Then JUDICIAL WATCH is a public watchdog group Promoting Integrity, Transparency and Accountability in Government, Politics and the Law. They uncover misconduct by government officials and litigation to hold to account politicians and public officials who engage in corrupt activities. Finally CAPSWEB informs the public about the coming nightmare of OVERPOPULATION that is already exhibiting itself in our deteriorating infrastructure. TELL YOUR POLITICIANS YOU HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE AT 202-224-3121


    Incidentally regarding the 2010 Census? Small states will miss out big time on federal dollars, while mass illegal immigrant states will gain more seats in Congress and too much power and influence? Of course ICE could check the immigration status of those who are counted, even though it's supposedly against US law? Or is counting 20 million plus (?) non-legal residence against the US Constitution?
