Joe Arpaio on the ropes as illegal immigrants join fight to oust ‘America’s toughest sheriff’

by Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times  |  published on October 26, 2016

Joe ArpaioPHOENIX — Maricruz Ramirez can’t even vote, but she’s doing everything she can to get others to turn out on Election Day to defeat Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

An illegal immigrant from Mexico, Ms. Ramirez led a group of immigrant rights activists Saturday as they went door to door, hoping to find young or infrequent voters they could entice to turn out, emboldened by the prospect of taking out the Republican lawman who’s been dubbed “America’s Toughest Sheriff.”

This could well be the year.

After cruising to election in his first five races, Sheriff Arpaio barely topped 50 percent of the vote in a three-way race in 2012, and Paul Penzone — the Democrat who was part of that three-way race the last time — is leading the sheriff in the latest polling this year. In fact, it’s not even close: An Arizona State University/Arizona Republic poll released last week put Mr. Penzone at 45.9 percent support and Sheriff Arpaio at just 31.1 percent.

Some analysts have questioned that poll’s sample — and the timing. It was taken just as the Justice Department announced it was pursuing criminal contempt charges against the sheriff, accusing him of continuing racial profiling against Hispanics despite a court settlement that ordered him to cease.

    O’Bummer has everything so screwed up even the Justice Department does not know what is legal and what isn’t. They expect miracles or do not want a lawman to do his job, arresting ILLEGALS that DO NOT belong here. The Democrats want open borders and encourage non-citizens to vote for their candidate. Do you smell something rotten in Washington?

  • Smitch

    I am waiting Grease Stains!

  • Martin Alonso Zuniga

    USA is the only country in the world in which criminal illegal invaders from mexico can and do challenge openly and without penalty, the Law.

    Millions of those illegals infest and besmirch our society, because the hired help aka. politicians are corrupt/traitor/criminals themselves with no fiduciary responsibilities to We the People that pays their inflated salaries and perks.

    Now, the DOJ is misusing our tax dollars to illegally and against our will, penalize our Sheriff Joe Arpaio for doing his work: TO PROTECT AMERICAN CITIZENS AND DEFEND USA SOVEREIGNTY. Who gave the stupid order and why??

    USA needs Trump to restore the rule of Law, clean the swamp in DC, deport all the invaders and jail the criminal/corrupt/traitor hired help. Now. Seriously.

  • RuFus92

    Obanans’ version of the new Americans at work interfering in another nations elections while real citizens will be arrested for even hinting at a fair uncorrupted election process. This people is his and Hillary’s plans for this country you had better vote for Trump and Joe to stay free.

  • Martin

    Deport or put this woman in jail. I’m tried of illegals. Do it right and you will be welcomed. Honest people are waiting in line.

  • Roy Fredrichsen

    Joe was only following the immigration laws as written BEFORE O’Bama and company decided to negate its meaning to get more illegal voters for the Democrats. They are trying to prosecute Joe for doing his job.

  • Harry J Schaubel

    Since she’s here ILLEGALLY, that means she is Breaking the Law! Arrest her and deport her and anyone else that is here illegally and just happen to be protesting.
    The “Right to Protest” is a right to US citizens in this country. Her and her kind are NOT Citizens so therefore that was an Illegal Assembly of Illegal Aliens committing a crime.
    Too bade we have to be so FRIGGIN PC that we stand aside and do nothing.

  • exoticdoc2

    And the Obamanation continues to support illegal alien trash over an American citizen lawman.

  • David Stewart

    All depends on “do you want the Feds running your state?” This is what happens when a sheriff defies a Federal judge, who has orders to eliminate said sheriff from the public scene! Murray Snow is Obama’s hit man, nothing more or less! All about the Kennyan’s fake birth cettificate!

  • Rock

    The man DOES his job and does it right… The border jumpers don’t like it so they whine to the Libs and Dems… Those Libs/Dems in turn are doing and recruiting ANYONE they can to remove Joe. This country needs 1000’s more like Joe !

    • bobnstuff

      I guess you don’t believe in the fourth amendment. We know Joe doesn’t.

      • Harry J Schaubel

        The US Constitution has provisions for caretaking of Illegal Aliens?
        I always thought that it was written for the Citizens of the United States of America? She is NOT a citizen but a criminal. She’s breaking Federal Law just by standing on the ground she’s on.
        No matter how much whitewash is applied, she is still committing a Federal Crime!

        • bobnstuff

          The rights under the constitution are mostly given universally to all citizens and non citizens. This has always been the case. At the time of writing there was no such thing as an illegal alien. It wasn’t till 1882 that there ware any restrictions on immigration and then it was only the Chinese. As a rule we spend little time chasing after people committing misdemeanors and that is the level of crime she has committed.

  • Smitch

    Those people come to my door…they will escorted off my property with the barrel of an AR-15 pointing at center mass!

  • Mike

    The last I heard, it is illegal for foreigners to interfere with U.S. elections ! Anyway you illegals will be out of here when we get a President that obeys the law.

    • bobnstuff

      Free speech is not illegal in our country yet but Trump’s working on that. It’s only illegal for foreigners to give money not to express their opinion. Do you remember when Trump asked for money from foreigners?

      • Rodney Steward

        There’s a difference between just foreigners and terrorist that Hellary does business with that give millions to her foundation!

        • bobnstuff

          You are talking about the same countries Trump is doing business with only the money they give Trump goes right into his pocket and does nothing to help anyone but Trump.

          • Rodney Steward

            IRAN!!!!!!!!!

          • bobnstuff

            Check you facts please. The story goes that a man who did business with Iran gave money to the Clinton Foundation. Not the same thing.

          • Rodney Steward

            There’s Saudi Arabia, gave 3.5 million to the foundation, and they live under Shariah Law, always have, and they don’t care about helping kids across the world like the claim of the made up foundation claims!

          • bobnstuff

            You mean the country that Trump has five different business’s in and people he owes money to. If you check Saudi Arabia is one of the US allies. So you don’t want others telling us how to run our country but it’s OK for us to tell them their legal system is wrong? I’m sure you have made a study of Islam and that’s why you know that in their faith they must give to the poor and help others. It’s 10% that a good Muslim must give away. They do give non Muslims living with them a discount though. Can you see Trump giving 10% of his income to the poor?

          • Rodney Steward

            Boy you’re really up on your muslin BS, Shariah law, it’s the most evil of all, but it coming from U bobby I’m not surprised at all, LOL! And they are not our allies, they used us for protection for years because we needed their oil, but we no longer need them any more! And U did know that it was their people that flew the jets into our buildings on 9/11, or have U been brainwashed by the DEM. party on this too!

          • bobnstuff

            Sorry but do you have any clue what you are talking about. You really need to find a real source for information on Islam. Your boy Trump sure doesn’t think Saudi Arabia is his enemy, he really likes their money.

          • Rodney Steward

            Not talking about Trump, talking about Shariah law, the worse form of slavery in the world! That’s the same way they lived in the 14 century!

          • bobnstuff

            It’s their government, not ours. There are good parts as well as bad. They have a better quality of life then a lot of other countries.

          • Rodney Steward

            The beheading, or women being stoned to death, to rape of children, both boys and girls, and this is everyday BS! So what part do U like, the video only shows the elite!

          • bobnstuff

            Main street Islam doesn’t believe in those thing anymore then main street Christians do.

          • Rodney Steward

            You really are a RETARD, google shariah law, you’re the kind Hellary loves, the weak minded voter!!

          • bobnstuff

            It’s on the internet so it must be true! Got to the sights that the Muslims use to educate their children, the ones written by Muslims for Muslims. I bet you think all Muslims believe the same thing just like all Christians believe the same.

          • Rodney Steward

            And the sword is for islam, this will be the Caliphate of the cult!!

          • bobnstuff

            You do know that this is not what Christ Preached. I guess you are just as miss informed about the Christian faith as you are about Islam.

          • Rodney Steward

            No, I’m not blinded by the stupidity of the Dem, socialist party, and it’s sickening to see someone quote bible verses but willing to vote for one of the most evil people in the world to finish off what Obama started, END AMERICA!

          • bobnstuff

            So which of the Ten Commandments has Trump not broken? I love how you have repeated the Obama has destroying America line your masters have taught you. Lets take a look at how things are. Unemployment is down by all standards, the stock market is way up. We don’t have daily body bags coming in. Crime is down as is the number of illegals in our country. You still have your guns, you still have the right to say stupid things. Some one has told you that our country is being destroyed and because the President is a black Democrat he must be evil.

          • Rodney Steward

            Are you brain dead about things, Have you not wondered why this B-TARD is considered the worst President in history, and be glad when this election is over so we won’t have put up with your stupidity anymore! Keep beating that dead horse in Clinton, she’s like Opey, a loser and just as evil, enjoy the fema camp!

          • bobnstuff

            Obama has one of the higher approval ratings for an end of term president and it’s only the right wing propaganda stations that are giving him a low rating. Now Congress is about to set a record for the least productive congress in history, they came close last time but it’s looking like they might make it this time.

          • Rodney Steward

            What ever bobby, go back t your Clinton coloring books, which one are U coloring in today, the Billy-Bob sex toys or Hellary’s foundation, or the nation of islam and their sex toys!! Don’t put your eye out with the colors!

    • Rock

      Interference is completely legal IF you are voting for a Democrat. Those voting for Dems are trucked, or bused in by the thousands, then dissapear. Ask Obama or Hillary, wait they will know nothing due to a cold or something.

      • bobnstuff

        Have you ever voted? Tell me just how these people are going to vote? Our voting places are regulated and you can’t just walk in and ask for a ballet. Explain just how these bus loads of people are going to do this.

        • Harry J Schaubel

          Because they will walk up to a polling place in a state that YOU DEMS have made sure CAN’T have Voter ID Laws. They state their Name (of the moment) which is on the register, take a ballot and go vote. At last count, there are over 25 million names on the voter register’s that are inaccurate, false, or DEAD, and the DEAD have ALWAYS voted Democrat!.

          • bobnstuff

            So you just told me you have never voted or you did it with your eyes closed. They don’t just hand you a ballet, they look you up in the book, you get to sign your name and if they don’t know you they look to see if the signature match. In every polling place I have voted in the poll workers know the people voting and strangers are checked out. There are people watching you from both parties to be sure you are who you say you are. You choose to believe a myth so if you vote this time look around at how they system works.

          • Rodney Steward

            And it’s for American citizens ONLY, NOT ILLEGALS with a drivers license, this doesn’t make these gutter rats legal!

          • bobnstuff

            I believe California fixed that problem. You really need to spend more time looking things up before posting and thinking things through. If you have a drivers license you are not voting for someone else. To do same day registration it takes more then just a drivers license. http://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/same-day-registration.aspx

          • Rodney Steward

            I didn’t say anything about same day registration, and U need to do a better job on what U post yourself!

          • bobnstuff

            Well then you believe that no one looks at the people that register to vote? Go look at the system, not just what you get from the talking heads and see just how it works.

          • Rodney Steward

            Why in the HELL did HLS and other Gov. branches work so hard to get these illegals drivers license for, it was so they could vote, this is the only way Hellary can win is everything illegal, from fraud to the media and lying in the polls! Now it was reported this morning that voter fraud was reported in Texas, and of course it was foe Hellary, and that state hates the POS!!

          • bobnstuff

            Insurance, you need a license to get insurance. They also have a data base so they can find them when they want to. The only way Trump can win is if Hillary drops dead before the election and then it would be a tight race. You say Texas hate Clinton but she sure is polling well there for someone they hate.

          • Rodney Steward

            The polls are a lie, been proven, it’s just to make people not want to vote! I’m telling U bobby, U gonna hate this Bi before it’s over and your’re gonna pay like everyone else! Her whole life is a LIE!!

          • Harry J Schaubel

            You’re describing a system controlled thru VOTER ID LAWS. I’m 65. Been voting since I came back from Nam in 71. At the last mid-term election WI had not put in Voter ID laws. I walked up to the table, told them my name, signed in the box and took my ballot to vote. No cross-check was done.
            If you’re a poll-worker who KNOWS everyone that’s voting in your district, you have a VERY small district. I live in the city of St. Francis in Wisconsin. we have just a couple voting locations and several thousand people come thru to vote. There is no way any Poll-Worker could know Everyone that’s voting. But now we have a Voter ID Law so will be able to stop “Some” of the illegal votes.
            And anyone who says a Voter ID Law is racist and unconstitutional is a left-wing idiot who wants to make sure that ONLY their party is in control.

          • bobnstuff

            When you vote this time take a look at the book, in Pa there is a copy of your signature. Most likely if you have been voting at the same place for years they won’t even bother to check since they know you. I have worked the polls and am truly amazed at how many people our poll workers know by name. After this election see how many illegal votes they stopped and how many people try to vote that should be able to but don’t have the ID. The whole point of voter ID isn’t to stop voter fraud but to keep the wrong people from voting. The republicans in Pa said it. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/6/25/1103126/-Pennsylvania-Republican-admits-voter-suppression-is-all-about-electing-Mitt-Romney

    Only Democrats will use illegal criminals to vote for democratic judicial criminals, Dont worry Joe, President Trump will spring you in no time so you can do your job and keep AMERICA SAFE AGAIN.

  • itsfun

    Why isn’t this illegal immigrant in jail or on a bus back to Mexico?

    • bobnstuff

      You don’t throw people in jail over very low level crimes like speeding or being here illegally.

      • itsfun

        Breaking federal law is not a low level crime. How many illegals do you need to tell you how to vote? Try going into Mexico and tell them how to run their government. You will be in jail for a long long time.

        • bobnstuff

          Go read the law and tell me that. There are EPA regulations with more bite. Under our constitution all people are given most of the same rights even those here illegally, look it up. When the republicans had the chance to fix immigration law they wouldn’t even look at it. When Obama asked for more border security the Republicans said no. Check out the present laws before you make a comment.

          • itsfun

            I’ll post what I want and when I want. You and your bs won’t scare me away. The failures of obama the last 8 years are the problem. Why didn’t you respond to what would happen if you went to Mexico and tried telling them how to run their government.

          • bobnstuff

            It’s the failures of Congress to pass meaningful immigration laws or any other meaningful legislation that’s the problem. I know you will post your meaningless posts, you have free speech rights even when you are miss informed.

      • Harry J Schaubel

        You’re right. Some Countries just EXECUTE an illegal alien.
        Go sneak over the border into North Korea or Afghanistan.

          Isn’t it nice to live in a country that values human rights?

          • Rodney Steward

            YES and be able to hang trespassers, and illegals!!

          • bobnstuff

            Sorry guy but in the US you can’t hang anyone. All that time you spent practicing on small animals is wasted.

          • Rodney Steward

            HA, HA, most illegals don’t even exist, old timers tell you this, but I’m not that kind of person bobby!

    • Wolfman

      Hey itsfun, as usual bobnstuff oversimplified the issue. The procedures and paperwork required to do the removal of the illegal alien is rift with paperwork and hearings. Congress has the responsibility for creating this nightmare , and the power to correct their past mistakes. So this act that Congress plays of being ‘victims of circumstances’ is obviously a crock and demonstrates how they dance to the Masters tune…as opposed to resolving a major issue. The Demons reneged on their portion of the ‘Amnesty ‘legislation adopted during Reagan’s time and both parties since then have done little that is effective in closing the borders. Being an illegal alien does not have to be a misdemeanor…the Masters have made it a minor crime. They can just as easily make it a felony. The Demons like it because they buy illegal votes this way which is why they don’t want effective voter ID requirements. As usual they blame ‘ persecution of the black guy and poor legal immigrants’ for the reason they don’t want voter ID…when you need ID to get Fed Benies…and ‘the black guy and poor illegal immigrants ‘ usually already have ID. The Demon motto over the past 100+ yrs. ‘Why tell the truth when a lie sounds so good ” ( and by the time it becomes apparent nothings working right tell another lie that sounds even better …and on…and on…and on!!!).
      So the ‘Problem’ is based on lies and deception and made to appear insurmountable. The real answer to the Demons statement when they say ” You can’t deport 11 million people and separate the ‘children’ [ aaah! the perpetual victim class] from their family !!” is ….Yes you can and they take their children with them….all it will take is time , dumping useless agencies to obtain the money, and the will to do it!!!
      If an American citizen commits a crime and is placed in prison…no one cares that they separate that family….fake compassion is just another lie that sounds good!!

      • itsfun

        If the left is so determined help the poor and minorities, why do we still have ghettos after 8 years of obama? Must be the fault of George Bush. They blame him for all of their failures.

        • bobnstuff

          It’s Reagan’s fault for our present rules but no one has fixed the problem, in fact no one really cared much until Obama became president.

          • Rodney Steward

            That’s because the brown clown gave 750,000 illegals temporary stay, and legally can’t do that bobby!

            This has nothing to do what so ever with this BS, this requires the approval of congress that this B-TARD continues to go around!! You picked the WRONG site bobby!

          • itsfun

            You can’t possibility be serious. How many years did Democrats pledge and campaign to help minorities. Now you want to blame Reagan for the failures of the left. Obama has had 8 years to fix the ghetto’s, Clinton had 8 years. It was all lip service from the Democrats.

          • Rodney Steward

            He’s a full blown Dem. will not accept anything other than what the Hellary news media says! It called low informed, or weak minded!

          • bobnstuff

            Let’s see, Reagan decided that if the government worked people would want more done by it so he made sure it didn’t. Once the government wanted the best and brightest but he put a stop to that. He had 8 years to put his plan in place then 4 more with Bush the first. By that time our government was showing signs that it had worked people were beginning to lose faith in the government. Then came Bill Clinton who believed in government and started to try to fix things. He did welfare reform and got the budget under control. He made a start in his 8 years but between Hate radio and the mess he had gotten from Bush it was only a start. Then we Got GW and his tax cuts and his unpaid for wars. Add in the fact that the banks had been cheating people for years and you get the Mess Obama inherited. So who should you blame, I say the man who started it.

          • itsfun

            Why not go back to Lincoln and blame him for the failures of Obama and the left. You are setting a record for making excuses for failures of the left. You just want huge government and say screw the citizens. After all no business owner is responsible for any of the success of his business, the government is the reason people succeed. You used at least 2 of the lefts big 5 excuses for failure. You either call people racist, bigots, haters, call them other terrible names or just blame good ole George Bush for the failures. In this instance you added Reagan to the list of reasons for the failures of the left. I guess now we have the big 6

          • bobnstuff

            There are points in history that change things, Reagan’s presidency was one of those points. Many thing changed at that time. It was the death of the republican party as it had been, it was the point of change of how many people look at government. If you don’t understand this then you don’t understand the problems we are facing right now. There are some things the government does well and it would make sense to have them do those things. There are things the government doesn’t do well and should leave their hands off. Our healthcare system is in trouble, the costs keep going up and the quality is going down. Here is a place where government can do a good job, Medicare has proven that. Our industry is at a disadvantage on the world market because we have an employer based health care system. Our costs of manufacturing is higher because the healthcare costs are part of it. No other industrialized nation does it this way. Our country was founded to do public works and to regulate commerce. These rolls for government have only grown and the government has grown with it. It’s the roll of the government to protect the citizens and promote general welfare. In other words to keep the citizens from being screwed. Reagan tried to change this. He believed that our country was about profit for private business and set out as his goal to privatize as much of government as he could. The funny thing is he didn’t cut the size of government only the quality. Government can and should play a part in helping business, the first public works project of our country was improving a port to encourage commerce. Good well educated workers are important to successful business and one of the thing that was important to those who settled the new world was education. Public schools were set up very early in our country. There are a number of other ways government helps business. I have owned a number of business’s and other then being a tax collector government was never a problem.
