Sherriff Joe Tells Conyers To Take A Hike

You tell ’em, Joe!

House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D.-Mich.) told he is going to invite Maricopa County (Ariz.) Sheriff Joe Arpaio to testify in his committee about alleged abuses by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in its enforcement of U.S. immigration laws. But a spokeswoman for Arpaio told that the sheriff–who has not yet received an official invitation to testify–currently has “no intention” of appearing before Conyers’ committee.

The spokeswoman said, however, that Arpaio “welcomes” a Justice Department investigation into the way his sheriff’s office has handled enforcement of federal immigration laws.

Say, I wonder if Conyers has heard of this little thing called the 10th Amendment? Not that the Constitution means much to Democrats, except when they want it to back them up. Otherwise, eh, no big deal to them.

“We are not surprised by the initiation of hearings and so forth,” said Allen. “We knew when the administration in Washington changed, the likelihood of getting a much more sympathetic ear to a lot of these open-border activists would probably occur. We are not at all concerned about the hearings or about the Department of Justice investigation. We are confident that we are not racially profiling. We have trained and are cognizant of that type of criticism being levied against us all the time,” she said.

Democrats look at people and see groups, just like Rush Limbaugh stated at CPAC. They put people in a box and look at how they can be pandered to. They look at illegals and see a way to increase their voting base by giving amnesty to people whose first act was to break American law.

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Tex.), the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, said he is worried that Conyers’ intended hearing is an attempt to discourage enforcement of the immigration law.

“Some Democrats seem to have forgotten that in America, you’re innocent until proven guilty,” Smith told in a statement. “I’m concerned that this hearing is an attempt to intimidate other law enforcement officials and discourage immigration enforcement. Democrats need to stop trying people in the court of public opinion–where there is no evidence–and let the Justice Department do its job without political interference.”

Separating Democrats from harsh partisan politics is like trying to seperate dung beatles from sh..

    You go, Sheriff. Your constituents like what you’re doing, that’s obvious. You swore to uphold the law when you took office, and obviously 16 years later you intend to keep doing that. If Conyers doesn’t like the law, she needs to start a movement to change it. In the meantime, SHE is supposed to be doing the same thing – upholding the current law.
