Janet hears from Joe

Through his attorney Robert Driscoll, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio gives Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano a bit of information regarding the DHS threat to terminate the 287 (g) program. The letter is available here.

The MCSO’s recent  three-day long operation netted 74 arrests including 10 admitted illegal aliens who the Sheriff said should have been arrested and turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for immigration violations. Instead, federal officials forced the Sheriff’s Office to release the arrestees back onto the streets and refused custody of the 10 illegal aliens arrested by deputies.

ICE’s refusal to accept custody of these illegal immigrants was in blatant violation of the existing 287G agreement that Sheriff Arpaio and his deputies have operated under since 2007, Arpaio said in his press release.

The Sheriff’s entire press release can be read here.

    I understand protocol in addressing government officials, unfortunately there is nothing honorable about Janet Napoitano or Eric Holder despite their positions in the federal government.
    The anti-American sovereignty position/agenda this administration has taken is reprehensible. Therefore, I doubt seriously they will pay any attention to the facts in this letter.

    The feds are going to do whatever it takes to try to quash Arpaio. The fact that he is enormously popular and wins reelection by wide margins has no relevance to the likes of Obama and and his henchman Napolitano. To me this all boils down to the vote of the people are the closest level — country government — meaning nothing. Why make our voices heard when the liberals remove the sound system we have called elections?

    Vince- Please don’t take me wrong here…But you ask,”Why make our voices heard…”(I don’t need a sound system anyway…HAHAHA)

    Because it’s our duty. “The price of FREEDOM is eternal vigilance.” Thomas Jefferson

    Of course our current Federal level Administration is trying to quash Joe. It would not suprise me 1 bit if some of our legislators @ the “Copper Dome” were happy to help.

    Something else to ponder is this…Why haven’t our Federal level legislators done ANYTHING about Napolitano & Holder…other than vote IN FAVOR of Mr. Holder for A.G.?

    Everybody that realizes this please consider a look into Chris Simcox!

    Here’s 1 more T.J. quote:”I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”

    Doc is correct Vince. I agree with him wholeheartedly. It’s often the case that defenders of The Constitution are muted by those with the means to purchase the media and by direct consequence the minds of the sheep.
