Sheriff Joe Arpaio — the outspoken lawman of Maricopa County — has once again laid his anger and frustration on the line…in bold print. In no uncertain terms, Arpaio levels serious charges against Barack Obama, now-familiar charges that the president is purposely flooding the border with thousands of illegal aliens, many of whom are criminals.
In a letter to supporters asking for donations to his re-election campaign, Sheriff Joe takes deadly aim at what he considers the serious offenses of the Obama administration.
“Our country is under attack.
“And Barack Obama is the aggressor. That’s right. Our own President has overseen the release of thousands of illegal immigrants…hundreds of whom are convicted criminals – even felons, which are flooding into America.
“Every day you read the newspaper or turn on the news, there is something tragic happening, something Obama says is beyond our control.
“But I must tell you: the state of the U.S.–Mexican border IS NOT BEYOND OUR CONTROL. In fact, it’s one of the key places where the safety of our nation starts. AND I am working around the clock to take criminals off the streets.
“Every action Obama has taken since the border crisis began has led to an increase in the flood of men, women, children, AND CRIMINALS! The icing on the cake…Obama’s solution is holding events at the White House “honoring young adults who came to this country illegally.”
“HE IS REWARDING CRIMINALS! We are arresting them just to have the Obama administration release them the next day!
While many people in Arizona and around the country cheer Arpaio for this kind of take-no-prisoners candor, Sheriff Joe does have his detractors…right there in his home state. Check out what this highly critical columnist writes at azcentral.com, a joint publication of 12News and The Arizona Republic:
Requests like this from Arpaio have never made sense, but they have made money, particularly when the plea is picked up or passed along by high-profile conservative websites like the Drudge Report.
Will people fall for Arpaio’s pitch again?
Are you kidding?
He makes the scammers pretending to be deposed royal figure or a millionaire from Nigeria look like amateurs.
