What's going on in Maricopa County?


In November, Paul Penzone beat Joe Arpaio for sheriff in Maricopa County Arizona. Joe had been sheriff there for 24 years and while he was sheriff, the overall crime rate in Maricopa was 50% lower than the national average with the help of tough laws that were enacted such as E-Verify. He was tough on illegal immigration and criminals. Penzone beat him by 55.4%.
An average of 400 “criminal illegal immigrants” are being released every 10 days by the newly elected sheriff in Arizona’s most populous county, federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch, many of them violent offenders. It’s part of Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy to protect illegal aliens, even those who have committed serious state crimes, from deportation.
Under a longtime partnership between the county and the feds, the Phoenix field office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was notified when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” were released from the Maricopa County Jail, which is one of the nation’s largest with a population of about 8,000. That ended when Penzone, who refers to illegal immigrants as “guests,” took office this year and, though he formally announced the change last week, it was put into practice much earlier.

I like Joe. I think it was something else that got him in trouble with the voters Ariziona's new sheriff sounds like a Democrat. Is he?

Penzone is a Democrat. Joe Arpaio is a Republican. I believe there were too many lawsuits by liberal progressives trying to defend the rights of illegals and illegal criminals. It was costing the taxpayers bucko bucks. Illegals shouldn't have any rights other than to turn around and go back where they came from..

Illegal means breaking the law- they steal the country and then the welfare and food stamps from working America
