John Conyers To Hold Basement Hearings On Sheriff Joe Arpaio

More federal government interference, more violations of the 10th Amendment. Maybe Conyers should investigate himself

House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and three fellow Democrats want the Department of Justice to investigate civil rights complaints against controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The lawmakers, in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sent Friday, are seeking a probe into reports Arpaio has used skin color as a basis to search for illegal immigrants in Arizona.

Exactly what skin color do illegals crossing the southern border tend to have, John? As the saying goes, isn’t this a distraction from the issues that are important to Americans, like, oh, let’s see, stopping illegal immigration?

  • 89% of Americans think illegal immigration into the U.S. is a problem (30% “extremely serious,” 33% “very serious,” and 26% “somewhat serious.” (Time Magazine, Jan. 2006)
  • 82% think that not enough is being done along the borders to keep illegal immigrants from crossing into the country. (New York Times/CBS May 2007)
  • 68% feel that the number of immigrants who cross the border, whether legal or illegal is “too high”. (Polling Company, Sept. 2006)

CNN polls have typically found that 65% + people believe that the number of illegal immigrants should be decreased. And, since most coming across the southern border tend to have a certain look, well, yes, those are the people who should be targeted. It is called a profile of the perpetrator. Unfortunately, Napolitano tends to be pro-illegal, so, we’ll see where this goes. One thing you can expect, though, is that Sherriff Joe will neither back down nor stop enforcing that pesky law thing. He sure didn’t stop enforcing the law against dead-beat parents just because it was Valentine’s Day.

    I just love Sheriff Joe Arpaio !

    I think he’s done an outstanding job as sheriff !

    While hs IS a US citizen, it’s a shame he was born in Italy cause he can’t run for president.
