AP: Arpaio Sweeps Only Net 10% Illegals

From an outraged Associated Press:

64 arrested in Arizona crime, immigration sweep

July 31, 2010

PHOENIX — The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office says 64 people have been arrested so far in a two-day crime and immigration sweep and six of them are illegal immigrants.

So it’s clear that these ‘sweeps’ are not targeting illegal aliens, since illegal aliens comprise less than ten percent of those arrested.

Sheriff’s officials say 19 of the arrests were made Friday with three people suspected of being illegal immigrants.

Which is to say, illegals represent only three percent of those arrested on Friday.

Many of those arrested were stopped for traffic violations and were found to be in the country illegally after they couldn’t produce driver’s licenses or other identification.

About 180 deputies and trained sheriff’s volunteers fanned out across metropolitan Phoenix on Thursday targeting traffic violators who may also be illegal immigrants

How does the Associated Press know that they were targeting illegal alien traffic violators? Is the AP psychic?

The figures would indicate that they were doing no such thing. Or, if they were, they were terribly incompetent about it. In any case, it amounts to the same thing.

No, this is just the usual agit-prop from our agenda driven media. They are trying to convince the public that Sherriff Arpaio and Arizona are running amuck against illegals.

It’s not unlike the Nazi press whipped up the German population against the Polish, before Hitler had to invade Poland – to protect Germany and the German citizens living there in Poland.

    I figure after a month or so of these raids we may be talking real numbers.
    I believe he may be onto something here……..it’s called. “Doing the job you are hired to do.”

    What !!

    Enforcing the law ?

    Who gave the sheriff permission to do that ???

    Well, it has happened. The left has so unabashedly shown its hand on the “largest voter drive in US History” that even the average walmart shopper is aware of it. I heard two people talking about it today and they seemed quite aware of what amnesty meant and how bad it would be for the nation.

    Perhaps the only time I’ve gone to walmart and left there, smiling.

    Like I said, as well as many others, like spoiled children, the socialists will get bolder and more reckless….which will destroy them. Like the movie “The Dead Zone” where Sheen grabs someone’s baby to use as a human shield against Christopher Walken’s gun…. Yes, that kind of revealing/bold.

    They are cowards of undefinable exponent. Brash, bold, obnoxious (“I won” and “the finger”) like high school seniors who think they are indestructible.

    The news that they are will hit them like a sledgehammer. Oddly, it will be for naught as they will double-down and continue on their path of destruction. How odd a mindset.
