Arpaio cites non-existent law in his argument for crime sweeps

33 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio cited a non-existent federal law and included a legal interpretation taken from an anti-immigration Web site in a document he distributed during a news conference last week.

Arpaio used the document to bolster his claim that he can continue to arrest undocumented immigrants during controversial crime sweeps even without a special agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

"We don't need that authority. I don't need any federal authority from (the agreement)," he said.

Arpaio said he will launch his 12th crime sweep today.

...

The interpretation actually originated on the Federation for American Immigration Reform Web site and has been reposted by anti-immigrant and border-control groups. Washington, D.C.,-based FAIR opposes immigration, legal and illegal. The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated the organization as a hate group.

...

The Arpaio document cites a provision of Title 8 of the federal code followed by language that says "state and local law-enforcement officials have the general power to investigate and arrest violators of federal immigration statutes without prior INS knowledge or approval, as long as they are authorized to do so by state law."

It also states that "evasive, nervous, or erratic behavior; dress or speech indicating foreign citizenship; and presence in an area known to contain a concentration of illegal aliens" can be used to constitute reasonable suspicions someone is in the country illegally.

Stephen Yale-Loehr, an immigration lawyer in Ithaca, N.Y., who teaches at Cornell University said the ... specific statute cited does not exist.

Title 8 does address local police enforcement of federal immigration laws, but none of the language contained in Arpaio's document comes from that law, Yale-Loehr said.

...

ICE officials declined to comment.

Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.

He is technically correct. He can arrest them. However, neither he nor the D.A. in his county have the prosecutorial power to try them for anything or deport them. That remains the jurisdiction of ICE.

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

This sheriff more than anything is an attention wh0re. He can't be that ignorant of the laws and still ascend to the post of sheriff. I'd wager that he has some angle on this to get a reality show or some ####### like that.

He should be in national politics. The frothing-at-the-mouth angry fuсkers are just gonna be disappointed by the GOP, he could give them a more natural home.

well I'm sure there's people who back up his theory u know.. foreign accent, we must assume he's illegal unless proven ID... I think is how the status quo wants it.. we don't want no foreigner doing crazy stuff, because, all foreigners, specially with speech indicating they're not americans, might be drug dealers or rapists
