July 28, 2010

WASHINGTON – The sheriff of the most populous county in Arizona says he’s “not going to put up with any civil disobedience” when the state’s new immigration law takes effect.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says that if protesters want to block his jail, he’ll put them in it.

The Arizona law, which takes effect Thursday, requires officers enforcing other laws to check a person’s immigration status if they suspect the person is in the country illegally.

Arpaio told ABC’s “Good Morning America” he doesn’t know “what the big hype is.”

He says it’s “a crime to be here illegally and everyone should enforce” the law.

    swatness123, I honestly do respect your views, no matter how misguided I believe you are. I do believe you think you are correct when you speak of "most" Americans just like I think you believe there is hate from myself and others. Once you get something in yourhead you honestly believe what you are saying. I have no hate and the people I know have no hate against anyone no matter the race, sex religion. We are frustrated with the system we are sworn to uphold and then told, well except this, they are just trying to better themselves. Bottom line, they are breaking the law, it may be a small law to you but let the "little" laws go and bigger will follow. remember the broken windows theory? Illegals will not call the police and that opens them up to violent crime. That my friend is another story. If that was your last post on this subject, Good luck, I enjoyed the debate and God Bless

    I have no hate toward the illegals, I am frustrated with people like you that stick your head in the sand and believe all will be ok. I hate the fact that our current administration is not enforcing the law and believe if we sit in a circle and hold hands the bad stuff will go away. ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL.

    IF I MAY INTERJECT, I ONLY ASKED HIM TO PROVE HIS STATUS. I UNDERSTAND THAT SOME PEOPLE HAVE NOT DONE THIS BUT WHEN YOU ENTER YOUR INFO THIS SITE WILL VERIFY THAT YOU ARE A LIGITIMATE LEO THROUGH YOUR ORGANIZATION. IF YOU HAVE A SHIELD BY YOUR NAME AND YOUR NOT AN LEO THEN YOU HAVE CHEATED THE SYSTEM WHICH IS WHAT'S WRONG WITH AMERICA NOW "CHEATERS", YOU WOULD BE NO BETTER THAN THE IMMIGRANTS. BY THE WAY TATERHEAD IS A LIGITIMATE WORD, SWATNESS IS NOT, SO KEEP YOUR DAY JOB.

    taterhead, if I may interject something: having a gold shield by your name on Police Link does not mean you are an Active Law Enforcement Officer. On the same token, not having a shield by your name does not mean you are not a Law Enforcement Officer. There are a ton of LEO's on this site that do not have a shield next to their name. That's their choice. There are also those on here that have a shield that are not LEO's.

    The name taterhead says it all, not to mention typing in all caps and the poor grammar. Your not a cop taterhead. Your a wannabe who will never be.

    The hatred you guys possess will eat you from the inside out.

    Again most americans want the immigrants here because they are in fact here making good money paid by americans. I welcome them with open arms.

    This is my last post on this story. There is too much hate going around in here

    Copper I hope you get over your Hate issues, you are just hurting yourself with all that inside you.

    I and most of America welcome all comers period Strain on the system is a myth but i respect your right to believe in it.

    Taterhead Im a 20 year police officer and a retired Security Forces troop with 24 years military. But thanks for checking.

    Due to your grammar I highly doubt your status as an LEO.

    SWATNESS YOUR FACTS ARE WRONG. THE IMMIGRANTS ARE COMING HERE BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO CHANGE THEIR GOVERNMENT, IT IS CALLED DICTATORSHIP, SO THEY FLOCK TO THE US FOR FREEDOM. NO MATTER WHAT THE REASON THERE IS A RIGHT WAY TO ENTER INTO OUR COUNTRY AND BECOME A CITIZEN. YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE JOB RECRUITS AND THOSE PEOPLE SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE ALSO.

    12 million illegals going hungry, I hate to sound harsh but SO WHAT. One legal american tryi g to get work but cant and he/ she and their family goes hungry......THAT IS A BIG FREAKING DEAL!! Like I said, I fought for americans, risked my life for Americans, would lay down my life for Americans. Not illegals getting fat off the tit of my life and tax money. The people you speak of area small percentage of the Americns that have the money to spend. Just because we picked a career that leaves us comfortable does not mean the jobs are there because of illegal allians takig the jobs at a fraction of the cost and no benefits. They are breaking the law and should be deported. You can not blame buisness, they are here tomake a profit, capitolistic society. Although I believe he companies hiring thr illegals should be fined heavly. They are cheating American workers to line their pockets and providind a disservice to their customers and the America people. On the flip side I can't blame them with the trickle up economics the current administration is for. Wait until Bush's tax plan expires and obama has a chance to screw middle class to the full extent, i have taken several pay cuts under the dem's and do not know how much more I can take before I can't make ends meet. If we get rid of the social programs for these leaches I may get a pay raise for the first time in over ten years. You can say all you want that the illegals wre not a strain on our economy but if they do not have insurance and they cannot be turned down for medical treatment then WHERE IS THE MONEY COMING FROM, OUR POCKETS!! I have never asked for or received money to get by, I live within my means, never had anyone help me with housing and was not qualified for food stamps while in the military, I do not have several credit cards charged to the max and expect someone to bail me out. I do not receive benifits I did not pay for. It is time to stop the madness, If I go to the ER I must show ID and insurance card, illegals do not provide any info or use a fake ame and get better medical care than me. I have a house and vehicles to lose that I paid for through hard work and over 20 years of blood and sweat. In order to get the heath care I deserve I would have to lose everything to live. The illegals do not have anything so they can receive the care on my dime. That is not right!! They have nothing so they get everything in the name of the American Dream I provide. Why should I have to take away from my child's future to pay for something with everything I earned causing my daughter to go without so some person that invaded my country can survive and never pay into the very plan that I do so they can be provided the best care. NO STRAIN......BS!! You may live well but I say I would do this job for nothing if my family had enough to get by. I am not in your boat, I am comfortable but it is due to doing the right thing and budget, budget, budget. I still say get rid of them.....ALL OF THEM, WOMEN, CHILDREN AND THEIR FATHERS. come back legal, no problem, come back illegal and be denied all services PERIOD. They should be made to be so unhappy they want to go home until they are legal and pay into the very system that protects them. I hate to see people suffer and do all I can for all I serve but my first thought is with americans, all religions, races and sexes. Americans first!!!do you not see the responses posted here? these are just your brothers and sisters in blue who help everyone regardless of their status. Imagine what the American public thinks!! They are even more fed up because they have to compete with these leaches for work and to feed their familys. The illegals came here by choice, what choice does an American citizen with little education, or educated with no job openings have when competing with these people. School loans, no jobs and try to work and make ends meet, will do anything to feed their families and pay off schoo loans just to be told they are over qualified and see people that do not even speak english working under the table. WAKE UP, This zit is coming to a head and the AMERICAN SILENT MAJORITY IS A RISIN'. We are sick of the touchy feely BS and politics as usual, we will be heard. I say it again, i will provide the same service to all people regardless of citizen status but I think they ALL need to be deported until they can do it rigt, then welcome to America. Until then get the HELL OUT OF MY COUNTRY!

    Oh, insurance rates are paid by all of us except by illegals that drive anyway. We pay uninsured driver in our insurance payments, yes there are Americans that do not have insurance but the biggest offenders are the illegaals, not based on anything other than my experience!! How many other officers have the same experience? so not a strain? start living in the real world, stop dreaming of running through the woods with Bambi and Thumper, the world is not perfect. I will always defend all living persons of the world but first I will take care of my brother and sister AMERICANS

    Its like I said before if the U.S. would take down the "Cheap Help Wanted" sign then the illegals would not come. Americans actively recruit these workers...Let me repeat Copper, Americans actively recruit these people. They have for years and they always will,,,So you need to blame that on the companies and individuals that hire these people.. So the Americans in DC also recruit and hire these people as well huh?
    Sounds to me like there are a lot of Americans want the illegals here, Imagine that.
    Again, NO NO NO NO our economy is not being strained by illegals....Just this weekend watch how much americans spend going to the movies, Or total ticket sales for other movies in the U.S. alone Avatar 749 million, Transformers, 300 million, Transformers 402 million I could go on that is just for 3 movies.....
    ....Look how many new cars are on the road...we do not have soup and bread lines

    Every professional sport game has packed stands of 50,000 people. or more at a hundred bucks a pop per family of 4....Go to your restaurant district in your city. It will be packed...Go to your entertainment district tonight. It will be packed.

    Americans sure go all out on entertainment alone for being so overran with illegals and having our system drained

    And your friends that have the law background...Apparrently District Judge diagrees with wholeheartedly as she has gutted the law with her recent ruling....But i.m sure your friends are nice people.

    Copper I think you have some misguided hate issues......Dont blame the illegals...Blame the Thousands of Americans that recruit them, hire them and support them wholeheartedly

    Face it if the U.S. truly did not want them here....they would not be here 12 million strong

    Today in court I spoke with a few friends that claim to have some background in law and I did not find anyone (that has read the law) that actually disagrees with it. Being in the great liberal state of Maryland I find that amazing!!
