One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.

"An Arizona sheriff known for aggressively cracking down on illegal immigration has been stripped of some of his special power to enforce federal immigration law, and he claims the Obama administration is taking away his authority for political reasons."

"Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose office faces racial-profiling allegations over crime and immigration sweeps in some heavily Hispanic areas of metro Phoenix, said officials from Washington won't let him renew a deal that let his deputies make federal immigration arrests."

"Let them all go brag that they took away the sheriff's authority. Let them all do that. That doesn't bother me. I don't have an ego. I will continue doing the same thing," the Republican sheriff said, noting he can still enforce state immigration laws. "What has changed, other than the politics and the perception emanating from Washington?"


"The U.S. government, which does most of the nation's immigration enforcement, is changing its rules for allowing local police to enforce more expansive federal immigration laws. Nationally, more than 1,000 local police and jail officers have been granted the power since 2002 to make immigration arrests and speed up deportations. " (Washington Times Article)
