    Seems as though a sheriff in Arizona is using his posse of reserve deputies to arrest illegals. He says they won't turn them over to the feds who just send them back, but will put them in his jail and get some road work out of them... or something like that. The Mexican Consul hired a California attorney to represent all the illegals. It is really starting to chaff my a__ that the Mexican Government is supporting its citizens for illegal entry into our country. They best be careful because some have not yet forgot the Alamo and Mexico City could become one of our southern captials. Go Sheriff - get those rascals.

    This is not just any sheriff, but it is Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa county.

    This is the guy who makes his prisoners wear pink underware, eat green expired balogna (spends about 20 cents per meal per prisoner) he buys at a discount, and has more than 2,000 prisoners prisoners that live in a "tent city" jail out in the desert without smoking, coffee, pornographic magazines, or movies.

    You can bet that once the illegals visit there, they won't try and cross again in his county.

    His motto, "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don't come back."

    i think this sherriff is an example to have all U.S. sherrifs and all law enforcments officers to follow on his example.
    this is the type of deterrent that is needed for all prisoners .
    he needs an award of some kind .
    hell i feel like sending him a thank you for haveing the backbone to
    do as he sees fit without regard to opposition .
    what a joke about the mexican govt up in arms.
    must be their amigos that got nabbed .
    bet there have been more than 1 stoner back in the day got their butt in a bind in a south of the border hellhole and had to sit for weeks months and years for petty offenses cause they were gringos.
    this brings to mind the old saying when the shoe is on the other foot.

    A little bit more about Sheriff Joe ( This particular famous email borrows from an Associated Press article from July, 2003 that focused on the prisoner's experiences during a heat wave and adds other details that have become well-known about Sheriff Arpaio and the jail.)

    "Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona) is doing it RIGHT!! He has jail meals down to 20 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them. He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights. Cut off all but "G" movies. He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects. Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination.

    He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TV again but only let in the Disney channel and the weather channel. When asked why the weather channel he replied, so they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.

    He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value. When the inmates complained, he told them.....this is a good one......"This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don't come back."

    More on the AZ Sheriff: With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set a new record), the Associated Press reports: About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts.

    On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside the week before. Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as sweat collected on their chests and dripped down to their pink socks. "It feels like we are in a furnace," said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the tents for 1 1/2 years. "It's inhumane."

    Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: "It's 120 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle gear, but they didn't commit any crimes... so shut your damned mouths.""

    This could have not been said any better.Here in Louisiana some of our prisoners have better living conditions in jail then some of the law abidding citizens do out of jail.

    Thats the way it should be. Too many people return to jail time and time again, they have it to easy. It's about time someone went back to the old way of doing things. My hat is off to him.

    type his name in and you will see conflicting storys about this man
    but i still like the ideas he has put out there.

    iespecially like the retort he gave when the prisoners were complaining the tents were stiffleing hot over 100 degrees

    he said we have soldiers in iraq in 120 degree heat living in tents fighting to keep our country safe so shut your damned mouths and do your time
    if you dont like it dont come back!!!!!!!:cool2:

    amen to that wish i could high five him on that one.

    Amen to that, illegals go home!
    Let me clear up a few misconceptions for all of you, overly sensitive, politicaly correct, cowardice wussies. wanting illegals to go home, doesn't make a person a racist. if you are a legal citizen of the U.S. , then i don't care what race, creed, or religion you are. but if you are here illegaly, then you have no rights so, get out!

    i was having this exact discussion with a friend who is originally from Laos, and he is here 100% legaly i may add. anyway, he speaks perfect english, and doesn't seem to need the profit whores, like wall-mart to translate the signs into his native tounge. this is not by accident, it is because his family thought it was important to be able to speak the language, so that they could communicate with americans. you wouldn't move to france without knowing how to speak french, would you? when when his family came here, they understood that, they must become americans who were from laos, not laotians who live in america.

    my grandfather killed Germans for this country, and it is insulting to see illegal aliens, using U.S. freedom to protest, they are taking advantage of rights that do not belong to them. isn't the job of I.N.S. to deport illegals?
    where the hell were they, during the protests? i understand that they don't want the bad press, but if you or i, were to commit a crime while protesting, do you think that we would be arrested? you bet we would. illegals were commiting a crime just by being there!

    i invite all american citizens, black, white, hispanic, asian, arabic, etc., to stand up and say "were not going to take it anymore". illegal immigration is a problem for all citizens, from both a financial, and a security standpoint. if that many illegals enter without resistance how many terrorists do the same?

    no, the illegal mexicans are from mexico, but i'm opposed to all illegal immigration. not to mention, how many non-mexican, terrorists have entered through our southern border? after all, we didn't exactly see the last attack coming, did we?

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio said he would charge each illegal immigrant with Smuggling because the way he sees it, when each one illegally crossed the border they smuggled themselves. That way instead of turning 'em over to the Feds (for a free ride home) he can make them members of his chain gang and get some work out of them. I like his way of thinking and I agree with Darryl, he is a good example for other Law Enforcement Officers. :big_smile:

    Sheriff Joe is tough here in the desert but the illegals get the federal ticket back home and get to keep our Americam money they have on them. The ticket home ensure our money goes to mexico for their familys. Then they make it back and do it again. You wouldn't believe how many illegals hang out on the streets getting regular work under the table. I don't think the hiring is going to stop because it cheaper no ins. or vaca. compared to an American getting hired. We need to secure the borders, if the mexicans get here so easy for work you know it's easy for the terrorist to do the same.
