From Stand With Arizona:
January 7, 2012
By John Hill
The open-borders left just can’t believe it. After all the trumped-up “investigations”, the race-baiting by Obama officials and La Raza stooges like Rep. Raul Grijalva, the politically-driven charges by the Department of Justice…
Sheriff Joe is running for another term.
That’s right. “America’s Toughest Sheriff” refuses to quit, refuses to knuckle under or stop doing his job protecting the people of Maricopa County – the 4th most populous county in America – from illegal invaders and criminal aliens. And Sheriff Joe is also staying on the job for ALL Americans. Because the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office apprehends a staggering 25% of all criminal illegal aliens in the United States. That means Joe doesn’t just keep illegal alien rapists, robbers, gangbangers and identity theives out of Phoenix, Mesa and Scottsdale, AZ – he also keeps criminals from threatening Americans in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida – or a city or town near you.
That is why Sheriff Joe was a target for this Administration from day one, and why the DOJ launched an “investigation” against Arpaio just four weeks after Obama’s inauguration – when most Cabinet departments were barely even staffed. Because Arizona is the gateway for illegal aliens into America. And the open-borders forces don’t want Sheriff Joe to be the gate, stopping the flow of illegal labor – and potential voters – into this country.
So Joe will not quit. He cannot quit.
A feisty Arpaio announced his decision in an interview with Megyn Kelly:
Stand With Arizona wholeheartedly supports Sheriff Joe Arapio for re-election, and rejects the politically-driven attacks on Arpaio and his outstanding deputies.
