Maricopa County board delays Arpaio immigration enforcement funding

While illegal immigration-supporting Dems hold a hearing in Washington DC about the 287g program, Maricopa County, Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio has problems on the home front (link):

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday voted to postpone the acceptance of $1.6 million from the state to help pay for illegal immigration enforcement by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The Republican-majority board until now has consistently supported Arpaio and generally agreed philosophically with his viewpoint on illegal immigration.

Observers said the decision could signal that the board is concerned by federal inquires into Arpaio's practices and is another example of the toxic political environment between county government and the sheriff.

There may be various reasons for the delay, which will be re-considered in 30 days. One of those voting for the delay was, of course, Mary Rose Wilcox.


Im outraged at this clearly anti American witch hunt against Arpio. After they put him out of business, maybe he might [please God?] become the leader of some sort of Americian Patriotic movement? Could use someone like that. He's like a modern day Gen. Patton

Outrage is the word......Anyone who wants to preserve the sovreigntry of this country is in jeopardy. The takedown of America has accelerated with Obamas trip to Europe. I'm afraid the time for a new civil war is at hand. This one is between the liberal loons and the rational American Patriots.
