Sheriff forms posse to stop invaders

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced Tuesday that about 100 volunteer posse and Sheriff’s deputies will soon begin randomly patrolling the desert areas and main roadways in southwest Maricopa County as apart of an operation to stem the flow of illegal aliens entering the county.

Arpaio made the announcement just as 11 more illegal aliens were being booked in jail after a Ford Windstar with California plates and 16 people packed inside was stopped by a Sheriff’s deputy early Tuesday morning on a traffic violation near Gila Bend.

Despite the growing controversy about illegal aliens nationwide, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office remains the only Arizona law enforcement agency willing to enforce a new state anti-smuggling law.

“There are so many illegals trying to make it into the county that it’s overwhelming my deputies, so I have called on members of my 3000 member volunteer posse to assist,” says Sheriff Arpaio. “It’s not only illegals we find and arrest out there, we’ve also made some recent huge drug seizures involving illegal aliens including nearly 100 pounds of methamphetamine and approximately three pounds of heroin.”

Sheriff Joe is a HERO. It’s a damn shame more law enforcement personnel arent like him.
