Barack Obama is often presented with the choice of supporting America and Americans or working against America. Well, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out which side Obama will fall on.
Now, the Obama regime is striking out against an American hero.
From USA Today:
The Justice Department has been investigating allegations of civil rights violations and racial profiling involving the Maricapo County Sheriff's Office for more than three years.
The announcement could mark the end to a probe that has served as a backdrop as Arpaio pursued his controversial attempts at immigration enforcement through crime sweeps and worksite raids, the newspaper says.
The sweeps have in the past led to dozens of sheriff's deputies descending on heavily Latino neighborhoods looking for minor infractions as a way to launch into immigration screenings.
The scope of the sweeps has broadened, however, since federal immigration officials in 2009 took away Arpaio's authority to perform street-level enforcement as part of a federal program.
Arpaio and his administrators have consistently denied that his immigration-enforcement measures target Latino residents.
Both of those immigration-enforcement tactics have generated broad public support along with claims of racial profiling, The Republic reports.
The Obama regime is now using this as a pretext to eliminate all federal support and cooperation with the Maricapo County Sheriff’s Office.
The message could not be clearer.
The Obama Regime does not want our immigration laws enforced.
While the Obama regime is dealing with the fall out from the Fast and Furious, instead of cleaning up the Justice Department and working to undo the damage from the gunrunning operation, the Obama regime instead wants to go after an American Sheriff who is doing his duty and enforcing the law.
If Obama is reelected, the border with Mexico will effectively disappear. There will be no immigration enforcement.
Even now, immigration arrests are plummeting.
From the Washington Post:
Arrests of illegal migrants trying to cross the southern U.S. border have plummeted to levels not seen since the early 1970s, according to tallies released by the Department of Homeland Security last week, a historic shift that could reshape the debate over immigration reform.
The Border Patrol apprehended 327,577 illegal crossers along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2011, which ended Sept. 30, numbers not seen since Richard Nixon was president, and a precipitous drop from the peak in 2000, when 1.6 million unauthorized migrants were caught. More than 90 percent of the migrants apprehended on the southwest border are Mexican.
The number of illegal migrants arrested at the border has been dropping over the past few years but appears to be down by more than 25 percent this year.
In 2013, we must have a new President and we will need a new Secretary for Homeland Security.
I think there is a good Sheriff in Arizona who would be an excellent choice.
How soon will this be real, I want to wake up and try to think this last 3 years have been a nightmare.
So far this is the best picture that has been taken of him.
I agree. I love Sheriff Arpaio.I wish he was here in South Carolina.
I wish we had someone like him in every state. I detest these cities that claim to be sanctuary cities for illegal aliens. Of course Sanctuary cities in the Old Testament were for criminals to sometime for their lifetime.
Just What are we waiting for .GET RID OF OBAMA,SOROS and all the rest of the socialist ,including the people that voted for him.
To Lazy to research and to dumb to listen .
