Say it ain’t so Sheriff Joe. Well it happened. The controversial Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio, arrested a 6-year-old undocumented immigrant. The little girl told authorities she was from El Salvador after her and 15 other immigrants were arrested. The move happened the SAME day that President Obama announced a new policy halting the deportations for young undocumented immigrants. Arpaio said that the president’s announcement would not impact his approach toward young undocumented immigrants. But as everyone knows, Sheriff Joe is no stranger to controversy.
Arpaio is currently the sheriff of Maricoapa County in Arizona. He runs his prisons with an iron fist. Inmates are housed outside, and they wear pink prisoner uniforms. He is also at the center of the Obama birth certificate conspiracy. Arpaio has admitted that he has used taxpayer resources to pursue the investigation into Obama’s birth certificate. The “birther conspiracy” is believed to have been debunked but hardcore conspiracy theorists believe otherwise. Good ole Sheriff Joe still believes that Obama may not be a citizen. Problem is, if Obama is indeed not a citizen, then it’s too little too late. He already served one term and will more than likely defeat Mitt Romney for a second term.
What you may not know about Sheriff Joe is that he is currently being sued by the Department of Justice for MULTIPLE civil rights violations. Maybe its about time. Maybe Joe Arpaio needs to be looked at a little closer.
Everyone is probably of the opinion that something should be done about illegal immigration. Yes, Joe Arpaio is currently at the forefront of this issue. But, is arresting a 6-YEAR-OLD GIRL THE ANSWER? Probably not. She is 6!!! What possible threat does she pose? Please, someone please tell me. Maybe I just don’t understand. I am open to anyone explaining to me how this HELPS the problem. Yes, illegal immigration is a problem. Nobody likes to see an illegal immigrant get away with a crime or get free money for school, all the while Americans are going to jail for crimes and some people can’t get money for school. But this can not be the answer. Sheriff Joe makes it a point to stick it to Obama anytime he can.
Here is some advice for Sheriff Joe. If you keep playing this little spite game with Obama, Obama will win. He will always win. Remember, Big Brother always gets the last laugh. I know you are trying to be a trail blazer and all, but this might be a game you lose. Big Brother tends to “suicide” people who are problems for them. I commend your effort Joe Arpaio, just be careful rocking the boat. You may very well capsize the boat on YOURSELF!
