“….at least I know where the border is!”
Sunday’s Drudge Report headlines our own Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s call for Barack Obama to deploy the U.S. military to the Mexican border to work bilaterally in controlling the flood of illegal aliens crossing into the United States.
Listen (click on audio bar at 10:54) to hear Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio as he is interviewed by Aaron Klein Investigative Radio on The Answer, 970 AM New York — transmitted across the globe from Tel Aviv.
Arpaio says, “If we are worried about the danger, then I would send the military across the border, work with their military bilaterally and get the job done. That’s what I would do and we’d clean up this mess.”
Our no-nonsense sheriff, renown for his tough stance on illegal immigration, was asked how he would help clean up the immigration mess if he were advising the White House. He responded unequivocally, “Why do they have to go to court? The minute they cross the border, put them on an airplane and send them back.”
“I spent many, many years as a regional director in Mexico City, Central, and South America, also I was the head of the DEA in Texas and Arizona.” Arpaio added, “ So at least I know where the border is!”
I would go back to what I did in Mexico. We were operational. We let agents carry guns. We worked right along with the Mexican authorities, locking up drug peddlers….worked together and got things done.
Arpaio noted that 38 percent of illegal-alien inmates in his Maricopa County jails who are turned over to federal authorities for violating immigration law return “over and over again on various criminal charges, which violates their [the fed’s] own policy and criteria that they are supposed to be deported.”
“Either they [convicted illegal alien felons] are coming across that border multiple times or they are being dumped on the streets of Arizona,” he said.

An exasperated Arpaio, referring to the deluge of unaccompanied minors flooding across the southern border, recently told Fox News’ Sean Hannity, “You talk about the Border Patrol, they’re too busy changing diapers and not going after dope peddlers and illegal immigrants.”
Border Patrol agents are allegedly being told that if they speak out about the situation, they will be disciplined or charged with a crime.
