Sheriff Arpaio Continues to Enforce All illegal Immigration Laws

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s continued crackdown on illegal immigration resulted in the detaining of twelve illegal aliens last night by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Human Smuggling Unit. Five of the illegal aliens detained were booked on charges of Human Smuggling, and the other seven were turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for appropriate disposition.

Sheriff Arpaio began his Human Smuggling Unit over two years ago; it has booked 2,137 suspects for Human Smuggling, a Class IV Felony, and has a conviction rate of 96%. In addition to those bookings, the Sheriff’s Office has also placed Immigration Holds on over 36,000 arrestees, making them subject to deportation.

Sheriff Arpaio has vowed to continue enforcing all aspects of the state and federal immigration laws through the use of his Crime Suppression Operations, Human Smuggling Unit, and the enforcement of Employer Sanction laws. Sheriff Arpaio says “I will not be distracted nor deterred by civil rights activists, or Department of Justice Officials, demonstrators or local and national politicians from continuing to do my job as the elected Sheriff of Maricopa County”.

Sheriff Arpaio will be traveling to Nashua New Hampshire tomorrow to speak to one of the largest Republican organizations in the state regarding the continued problem of illegal immigration within the United States. Arpaio will also be meeting with Former New Hampshire Governor, and former President George Herbert Bush’s Chief of Staff, John Sununu. The Sheriff received a call from Sununu today.

Sheriff Arpaio is expecting a large number of protesters in front of the Crowne Plaza Hotel, in Nashua New Hampshire, Sunday at noon, while he is addressing the Nashua Republican City Committee. Arpaio says “wherever I travel there are demonstrators, I refuse to be deterred because of a few people protesting my policies. The audiences I speak to are always 100’s of times larger than the protestors. I’ll continue to talk to my supporters across the country”.
