Obama Sues Arpaio To Shore Up Hispanic Base

From an unquestioning Reuters:

Government plans to sue Arizona sheriff for targeting Latinos

By Jeremy Pelofsky
Tue Apr 3, 2012

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Obama administration on Tuesday said it was preparing to sue Arizona county sheriff Joe Arpaio and his department for violating civil rights laws by improperly targeting Latinos in a bid to crack down on illegal immigrants.

So let’s review. The Obama campaign has whipped up their ‘union base’ with their Wisconsin attacks. They have whipped up their anarchist ‘class warfare’ base with their Occupy Wall Street movement. They have whipped up their ‘feminist base’ with their contraception mandate and their charges of a Republican ‘War On Women.’

They have whipped up their ‘black base’ with a month old shooting. And now they are whipping up their ‘Hispanic’ base suing Sheriff Arpaio and rekindling their attacks on Arizona in general. Have they missed anything? Have they covered all their bases?

The sheriff’s high-profile crackdown on illegal immigrants has helped thrust the issue onto the national political stage with some states passing tough new laws aimed at pushing out those in the country illegally.

Reuters managed to sneak in the word ‘profile’ in the second sentence. Even though there is absolutely no proof that Sheriff Arpaio has ever profiled anyone.

The administration’s Justice Department and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office have been in settlement talks for months over allegations that officers regularly made unlawful stops and arrests of Latinos, used excessive force against them and failed to adequately protect the Hispanic community.

Those negotiations have broken down because of a fight over the Justice Department’s demand that an independent monitor be appointed by a federal court to oversee compliance with the settlement, which has now reached 128 pages in draft form, according to the Obama administration

No, those "negotiations" have broken down because the Obama campaign needs to rile up the Hispanic community. Especially, after their misstep in exploiting a shooting where the ‘white’ killer of a black turned out to be a Hispanic Democrat.

The Justice Department in a December report outlined numerous alleged civil rights violations, including that Latino drivers were four to nine times more likely to be stopped than non-Latinos by Arpaio’s force

Has the Justice Department ever noticed the demographics in Phoenix? (Which, by the way, is the kidnapping capital of the world.) But notice how the DOJ is trying to impose racial quotas on arrests.

Even though we suspect a lot of those arrested are ‘white Hispanics’ who therefore could not possibly be profiled, anyway.

The sheriff has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing and lashed out at the Obama administration for targeting his department and failing to deal with the problem of illegal immigration with some 11.5 million believed to be in the United States…

"To the Obama administration, who is attempting to strong arm me into submission only for its political gain, I say: This will not happen, not on my watch!" Arpaio said in the statement…

What a crank. Who could ever imagine Mr. Obama or Mr. Holder doing anything for political gain?

Meanwhile, as Judicial Watch reported the other day:

DHS To Grant Illegal Aliens “Unlawful Presence Waivers”

April 2, 2012

In its quest to implement stealth amnesty, the Obama Administration is working behind the scenes to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants by granting them “unlawful presence waivers.”

The new measure would apply to illegal aliens who are relatives of American citizens. Here is how it would work, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement posted in today’s Federal Register, the daily journal of the U.S. government; the agency will grant “unlawful presence waivers” to illegal aliens who can prove they have a relative that’s a U.S. citizen

This could be handy for Obama’s own illegal alien relatives, such as Aunt Zeituni and Uncle Omar. That is, if Obama can prove he is a US citizen.

But instead of ‘anchor babies,’ we now will have ‘anchor relatives.’

Currently such aliens must return to their native country and request a waiver of inadmissibility in an existing overseas immigrant visa process. In other words, they must enter the U.S. legally as thousands of foreigners do on a yearly basis…

But the system often causes U.S. citizens to be separated for extended periods from their immediate relatives,” according to the DHS. The proposed changes, first announced in January, will significantly reduce the length of time U.S. citizens are separated from their loved ones while required to remain outside the United States during the current visa processing system…

You know, prison time also "causes U.S. citizens to be separated for extended periods from their immediate relatives." So we should just empty all the jails.

This appears to be part of the Obama Administration’s bigger plan to blow off Congress by using its executive powers to grant illegal immigrants backdoor amnesty

Yes, this is all part of Obama’s ‘We Can’t Wait’ to bypass Congress and the US Code program. It is also part of his Get Out The Vote drive.

    It has become illegal to make illegals illegal. And against the law for Arizona to make a law enforcing the law.

    Because we want all the undocumented Democrats we can get.

    Is America great country or what?!

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      You can defeat your enemy by noting what they see is important. This regime has self-identified in glowing, white hot letters what they think is important and thus, the tacticians on the right should be able to design and implement work-arounds and full-on assaults.

      Of course, in a sane world, the left continuously ties its own shoelaces together and falls on its face but the process of correcting their misdeeds is slowed by a sycophantic media and other water-carriers in office.

  2. GetBackJack says:

    The Hispanic origin folks I know, who grew up in America and consider themselves, as they should, bone deep Americans, farking HATE these illegals, and they hate Obama even worse than that.

  3. yadayada says:

    3 years ago a friend of mine (my partner at the time) was on a prisoner transport with me. we were listening to Rush on the radio talk about Arizona’s law. he doesn’t care much for illegal immigrants, but he more despises race bating and catagorizing all people with similar skin colors as one thought group acting in robotic lock-step.
    at one point he got fed up with the catagorizition “hispanic”
    “I’m not hispanic. what f*#k is that anyway? I’m American of Mexican desent. Where the f*#k is Hispania?”
    I laughed so hard I almost couldn’t drive.

    “Have they missed anything? Have they covered all their bases?” As Alvy Singer would say, they missed the Jewish, homosexual pornographer demographic.

    (As for “high-profile,” Reuters probably meant “notorious.”)

  5. canary says:

    Would it not be illegal for Obama and his Administration to use” taxpayers dollars” to file a lawsuit suit Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    It is out of the federal government’s jurisdiction.

    If Obama is acting as a lawyer on a class action law suit, it would mean Obama is violating the law as President playing the role of attorney.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s 2nd amendment rights in questioning Obama’s citizenship and the issue if Obama
    ever registered for the draft when he turned 18.

    While I understand the Latino population of Sheriff’s Joe Arpaio’s County as to Latino Population such as Wikipedia giving no population race and religion as it gives on the other U.S. sites and countries.

    And as the below census which does not give the county of the population showing nearly 50% are Latino in Arizona and only shows population in Arpaio’s county as only having white and blacks.

    The Census in 2010 in Sheriff’s Joe Arpaio’s County is 30% Latinos according to 2010 Census.

    (NOTE: This does not include illegal Latino’s in Sherrifs Joe Arpaio’s County nor the fact that illegals
    were in fact that very year of 2010 census in hiding and leaving.

    (sloppy statistics, probably because they are being scrubbed and rearranged. As is at this time)


    white: 4,667,121

    Black: 259,008

    Am. Indian/Alaska Native: 296,529

    Asian: 176,695

    Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander: 12,698

    Other: 761,716

    Two or More Races: 218,300

    Hispanic/Latino: 1,895,149
    Race Statistics for Maricopa County

    White: 2,786,781

    Black: 190,519

    A lawsuit would have to show Obama suffered a loss? (is Obama going to say he lost voters?)
    (not a legal suit with taxpayers money. An abuse of authority never seen in the history of the US)

    Did the Sheriff provide remedy? He aid the federal government in a costly to the taxpayers investigation.

    The prisoners were rehabilitated and made society better and crime down.

    The Sheriff should sue Obama for making him a target increasing death threats against the Sheriff and his police officers.

    This is insanity.

  6. canary says:

    Unfortunately some Republican candidates are supporting these easier VISA. cough cough

  7. Tater Salad says:

    Reuters and The AP………….same -o, same-o both liberal smear merchants!

  8. BannedbytheTaliban says:

    “That is, if Obama can prove he is a US citizen.”

    Are you becoming a birther SG? I never gave the idea much credence until I saw how the administration is going after Joe. Obama, like all communists, vehemently attacks any perceived threat to his grip on power. Maybe Joe is on to something.

  9. canary says:

    As far as I’m concerned Obama put a hit out on Sheriff Joe Arpaio at a time the New Black Panthers are offering awards on people. If Obama can place guns in the Mexican gang-drug cartels.

    I think he Joe should get body guards. I’m serious.

    Keep digg’n Canary. This truth must be told!
