Sheriff Arpaio makes nat’l news for speaking truth

Sunday’s edition of The Drudge Report headlined this WND report detailing an interview with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

During the interview on the “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast heard on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990 AM, Sheriff Arpaio said Democrats are mostly interested in immigration reform because the newly legalized residents will eventually obtain voting rights and will vote for Democrats.

“That’s common sense,” said Arpaio. “I don’t think that’s something that nobody knows. You make them here legally so they can vote.”

WND reported last year Eliseo Medina, a former immigration adviser to Barack Obama, boasted in 2009 that granting citizenship to millions of illegal aliens would expand the “progressive” electorate and help ensure a “progressive” governing coalition for the long-term.

Medina is the current secretary-treasurer of the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU. During Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, Medina and Jeff Flake’s radical leftwing pal, U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, served on Obama’s National Latino Advisory Council.

During the radio interview, Arpaio urged Republican president candidates to discuss the issue of drug trafficking when talking about border security.

Arpaio, whose office deals with criminality and runs the county jails, addressed the illegal drugs flooding into the U.S. from Mexico, saying “Ninety-nine percent” of those arrested for bringing drugs into Maricopa County, Arizona are illegal aliens.”

 “Everyone talks about immigration. What about the drugs destroying our young people? Heroin is increasing. So if I were advising the (Republican) candidates, I’m sure they will be calling me even though I’m taking heat again, I’d say start talking about the drug problem coming from Mexico. Forget just the illegal immigration. Put it together. There is a combination of both problems. That’s what I would talk about.”

Sheriff Arpaio asked, “Where’s the president? How come he is not talking about the drugs coming across the border?”

This U.S. Department of Justice National Drug Intelligence Center Report, is five years old. The deplorable statistics have not improved in the intervening years, as drug cartels and gangs have become even more emboldened. Read  Sect.2:11  (17 of 20) under the heading “Phoenix” for a more complete snapshot of the Mexican drug trafficking organizations or DTO’s.

At the time of the report’s release, authorities estimated that there were more than 10,000 gang members in the Phoenix metropolitan area. It stated, “Much of the violent crime and property crime in Phoenix is drug-and/or gang-related.”

In addition to Phoenix, Maricopa County —- one of the nation’s largest counties —- encompasses numerous other cities.

    Truth is the reason Joe Arpaio is under fire. It’s out of style these days. May God bless our good sheriff.

  2. azgary says:

    “Democrats are mostly interested in immigration reform because the newly legalized residents will eventually obtain voting rights and will vote for Democrats.”

    yes, and republicans want it for the lobbyist bribes, creating a permanent democrat voting majority for short term power and money.

    that’s what the politicians are willing to destroy us for and what those of you who vote for them are enabling them to do.

    is it still really “lesser of two evils”?

    nothing “lesser” about suicide

    Let’s hear it for fat-bottomed Hillary,
    Whose voice is both grating and shrillary:
    If she wins the election,
    There’ll be mass emigration
    Of citizens fleeing from “Billary.”

  4. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Sheriff Joe is known around the country because he has tried to enforce laws for decades now. He isn’t a go-along-to-get-along guy. People across the country know him and love him for that.

    The drug issue is extremely important as it plays a huge part in the crime rates in this country. AZ might have two ballot initiatives to vote on in 2016 if the pro-recreational marijuana people can get the signatures. I don’t know enough about ‘medical marijuana’ and if it really helps with people who have terrible medical conditions. I do know in California, it’s a joke. Anybody with a card can get it for any little “condition.”

    On “60 Minutes” last night, they did a segment on Colorado and how legal marijuana isn’t working out so great. It doesn’t stop illegal marijuana from coming into the state like the pro-marijuana side promised it would do. Ultimately, they want all drugs legalized.

    Sheriff Joe is right – where is Obama on drugs coming in over the border. Well, Sheriff Joe, Obama loves everything coming over the border – drugs, illegals and even ISIS if you believe some of the articles out there.

    Keep fighting, Sheriff Joe. We’re behind you.

    • Vince says:

      Ditto!! Sheriff Joe has been elected to SIX four-year terms for a reason. The liberal amnesty promoters at the Arizona Repulsive newspaper have been trying UNSUCCESSFULLY to defeat him for years. They’re going after him with full steam vengeance these days. His continued popularity is their worst nightmare.

  5. Conservative Voter says:

    Joe Arpaio’s background in law enforcement is unparalleled. He has a wealth of experience going back decades and is unafraid to speak the truth as we’ve read here. The good news is that the failing Arizona Republic’s readership has dwindled to nearly nil. Each election the newspaper makes endorsements, and each time their views on issues and candidates are defeated at the polls since no one sees or cares what they have to say. All statewide and Maricopa County offices are currently held by Republicans, which is not in accord with the newspaper’s scheme. When the Arizona Republic closes its doors, it will not be missed.

    This is our sheriff’s unrivaled bio.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Fantastic bio. And here we have a person in the White House with a thin-to-nothing resume, who’s been trying to take Sheriff Joe Arpaio down. Sometimes life doesn’t seem fair but Obama will pay a price for his hatred of America and those who love it. Karma is a you-know-what. And I hope he rots in hell.

    • Kent says:

      The AZ Republic’s influence is in the garbage, which is where Joe said it should be years back. The end of this ad is great!!

  6. jon jensen says:

    To back up what sheriff joe says every day in arizona 100 mexicans kids turn 18 voting age and 140 are born. However the drug issue only gets a positive response from those who would be voting republican anyway. Demographics are not on the republican side and sheriff joe know this. In the last four election the sheriff got 2000 61% 2004 58% 2006 start of anti immigration. 2008 53.5% 2012 50.7% That is why business supports immigration reform to protect our businesses!

    • azgary says:

      all the more reason to kick out illegals and stopping the scourge of anchor babies

      • Enuff says:

        Perfect response! Score 10,azgary, Zip Jon Jensen.

      • jon jensen says:

        Since first is unlikely and second is unconstitutional my point remains.

      • azgary says:

        wrong not unconstitutional to not accept anchor babies, get educated.

        irthright citizenship is based on an interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which was originally enacted to ensure civil rights for the newly freed slaves after the Civil War. Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.”

        A serious and scholarly debate has been on-going for years (Sen. Harry Reid introduced legislation to revoke birthright citizenship for children of illegal aliens – see article X; video clip here) about whether illegal aliens (and temporary visitors) are, in fact, “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States. Some scholars insist that the phrase has no real meaning of its own, but rather is essentially another way of saying “born in the United States.”

        Other scholars presume that “subject to the jurisdiction” means something different from “born in the United States,” so they have looked to the original Senate debate over the Fourteenth Amendment to determine its meaning. They conclude that the authors of the Fourteenth Amendment did NOT want to grant citizenship to every person who happened to be born on U.S. soil.

        “Subject to the jurisdiction”

        The jurisdiction requirement was added to the original draft of the Fourteenth Amendment by the Senate after a lengthy and acrimonious debate. In fact, Senator Jacob Merritt Howard of Michigan proposed the addition of the phrase specifically because he wanted to make clear that the simple accident of birth in the United States was not sufficient to justify citizenship. Sen. Howard noted that the jurisdiction requirement is “simply declaratory of what I regard as the law of the land already.” Sen. Howard said that “this will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.”

        Sen. Reverdy Johnson of Maryland, who was the only Democrat to participate in the Senate debate, was even more explicit about the meaning of the jurisdiction
        requirement: “[A]ll persons born in the United States and not subject to some foreign Power — for that, no doubt, is the meaning of the committee who have brought the matter before — shall be considered as citizens of the United States.” Sen. Johnson’s reading of the jurisdiction requirement also is consistent with our naturalization requirements. Since at least 1795, federal laws governing naturalization have required aliens to renounce all allegiance to any foreign power and to support the U.S. Constitution. Such allegiance was never assumed simply because the alien was residing in the United States; instead an affirmative oath was required.

        Sen. Lyman Trumbull of Illinois, one of the principle authors of the 14th Amendment, said that “subject to the jurisdiction of the United States” meant subject to its “complete” jurisdiction, meaning “not owing allegiance to anybody else.”

        In 1884 the Supreme Court held that children born to Indian parents were not born “subject to” U.S. jurisdiction because, among other reasons, the person so born could not change his status by his “own will without the action or assent of the United States.” And “no one can become a citizen of a nation without its consent.”

        An inevitable position

        In light of these and other statements made during the Senate debate over the Fourteenth Amendment, it appears clear that the authors
        intended only to grant citizenship to persons born here who were also “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States. They understood that phrase to have the same meaning as the phrase “and not subject to any foreign Power,” included in the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which these same Senators had earlier drafted. And by “subject to the jurisdiction,” they meant “subject to the jurisdiction of the United States in every sense,” and “[n]ot owing allegiance to anybody else.”

        It would be difficult to argue that illegal aliens and temporary visitors are “not subject to [a] foreign [p]ower” or that they do not “ow[e] allegiance to anybody” but the United States. The Supreme Court, however, has never decided the issue. The closest it has come is a case involving the U.S.-born child of lawful permanent residents in which, of course, it held the child to be a U.S. citizen. In the absence of a ruling by the Supreme Court, it will remain up to Congress to clarify the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment or to accept the status quo.

      “..anti immigration..”

      I’m starting to detect there is more to this than “JJ’s Used Tire Shop” – se habla español. There’s an alien invader(s) in your wood pile – somewhere.

    • Ajo Joe says:

      ….blah,blah,blah….to “support OUR businesses”?
      You can barely articulate coherent thoughts and yet you are a businessman? What you actually are is a sellout. If you have kids or grandkids, they will certainly thank you for turning our once glorious nation into a replica of impoverished and crime ravaged Mexico. You are a pompous fool.concerned only about yourself.

  7. Saguaro Sam says:

    News today that little ole’ Hazelton, Pennsylvania, out in the middle of that big state, now has 37% of its population as HIspanic.
    It was 5% back in the year 2000.
    Obama ruined beautiful Hazelton.

    Also, today—-Heads Up, Folks,
    (per drudge)
    A female has been admitted to the NIH hospital near D.C., having been transported there by special ambulances and airplanes.
    She has a very rare and often fatal form of TB that we do not see in the USA.
    Her identity is being shrouded.
    But it is disclosed that she has traveled through at least 3 states in the US and has come into contact with “hundreds” of people.
    Obama brought her here.

    Also, today, the story on Long Island where a young female was kidnapped as she left school and was raped repeatedly by a bunch of MS-13 gang members, described in the PC media as “foreign nationals”. Injuries sustained were so brutal that doctors are saying that she is “lucky to be alive”. Her life is ruined. Obama ruined it.

    • azgary says:

      more “doing jobs americans just wont do”

      but please stop blaming only Obama, yes hes horrific but repubs are just as open-borders as he.

      don’t ignore that fact, it must be considered when voting

      • ZOO says:

        Indeed. It was in 2006 that mayor Lou Barletta and council members passed the Illegal Immigration Relief Act, which was eventually struck down as “federal preemption” – sound familiar? Barletta estimated half of the 10,000 Hispanics left Hazelton after the ordinance was passed. If the Hispanic population was 5% in 2000, that means the tank got filled between 2000 and 2006 when 9 million Mexican aliens hop-scotched in during the first five years of GWB.
