The following is a letter sent in support of Sheriff Arpaio applauding his obsession with finding and detaining undocumented migrants while shamefully supporting the rhetoric that undocumented migrants are the most violent criminals. It’s great that the Sheriff wants to ‘enforce’ the law, but there’s a good reason why so many other cities refuse to use his terrible tactics to do the same. Nor do many towns put arresting working people, who although undocumented are not breaking any laws, as their number one priority.

Dear Sheriff Joe Arpaio,
We want to thank you for honoring your Oath of Office and putting the Constitutional rights of the citizens you represent above those who have chosen to violate our laws by entering and remaining in our country illegally. Also, we would like to commend you for your leadership in standing in stern opposition to those officials who choose to defend those who break the law. As you know the illegal alien population has imposed a tremendous economic burden on taxpayers and contributes to some of the most violent criminal activity in the state.

What about the Constitutional rights of human beings? What happened to those? As we know not all among us are citizens and many are here legally on visas – so what about them? What about all the people wrongfully detained in these raids that are here legally? I guarantee nobody signing this letter to Arpaio has been wrongfully arrested. So why should they care if others are – which they most assuredly are.
Thanks Joe Arpaio for terrorizing hard working people and making law enforcement into a sick and twisted circus act. Condoning the behavior of Arpaio is not only reprehensible, but it’s irresponsible.
