    by John HillStand With ArizonaWebsite | Facebook | Twitter Sheriff Joe Arpaio is facing a campaign to recall him from office. They are collecting signatures, and already have more than half the required amount with two months to go. This follows a re-election campaign last year which saw unprecedented amounts spent on both sides, as George Soros committed $10 million to oust "America's Sheriff". Joe was forced to spend his entire 'war chest' of $8 million to (barely) hold onto office - the closest race of his career. Why?Why is the Left in America so focused on a single county's...
  • Feds cut ties with Arizona agencies, won't assist in many illegal immigrant calls (IMPEACH OBAMA!)

    The Department of Homeland Security has announced changes to its relationship with Arizona’s local law enforcement following Monday's Supreme Court ruling. Just hours after the Supreme Court released its decision on SB1070, the Obama Administration made a big move by ending existing agreements with Arizona police agencies. DHS officials will no longer respond to the scene of a state or local traffic stop when those agencies request help enforcing immigration law. They will respond over the phone to help verify someone's immigration status, but they will not go to the scene unless the person is a convicted criminal, has previously...

    by John HillStand With Arizona It's been a busy week for Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) deputies, as they have captured 49 illegal aliens being smuggled into the U.S. in multi-point sweeps across the region over the past 5 days, including 15 arrested this morning alone. And as in nearly 80% of such cases involving MCSO, most of the illegals were headed for states other than Arizona. On Tuesday afternoon, sheriff's detectives were investigating two vehicles near Fountain Hills for human smuggling. The first vehicle contained 10 illegal aliens, including the coyote, which were heading...

    Supreme Court justices took a dim view of the Obama administration’s claim that it can stop Arizona from enforcing immigration laws, telling government lawyers during oral argument Wednesday that the state appears to want to push federal officials, not conflict with them.The court was hearing arguments on Arizona’s immigration crackdown law, which requires police to check the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally, and would also write new state penalties for illegal immigrants who try to apply for jobs.The Obama administration has sued, arguing that those provisions conflict with the federal government’s role in setting...

    Immigration: In an unusual move, Arizona's immigration law comes before the Supreme Court before its adjudication by lower courts. Will the high court let states protect their borders by enforcing federal laws the feds won't? The federal challenge to Arizona's SB 1070, the state law designed to help stem the flow of illegal aliens, is headed to an unexpectedly earlier resolution as the Supreme Court has expedited its review and begins hearing oral arguments on Wednesday. This can't be good news for an administration at war with both Arizona and the courts and already fearful that its landmark legislation, ObamaCare,...

The Sheriff's Office received two separate tips that 17 of the employees were illegal aliens who used false or stolen identification to get their jobs. Stunningly, some of those employees were seen printing out Wells Fargo credit-card information, government hunting tags and Health Net information in secure areas of the printing plant - giving them potential access...

    Illegal Immigration: Lawmakers in 14 states are joining to restore the intended meaning of the 14th Amendment: that being a U.S. citizen requires more than just your mother sneaking past the Border Patrol. The architect of Arizona's immigration law, SB2070, announced Tuesday a new crusade to correct what he perceives as an unfortunate misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment that allows children of illegal immigrant parents to be considered U.S. citizens if they're born on U.S. soil. "This is a battle of epic proportions," Mesa Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce said. "We've allowed the hijacking of the 14th Amendment." He says...

But the present controversy surrounding SB 1070 in Arizona prompts us to reconsider the immediate relevance of this tenet. As a Catholic, my faith emphatically tells me that honoring human dignity is essential to a just society. This profound belief that God's love and life are for everyone, especially the most vulnerable, compels me to action. Our tradition insists this commitment to the common good must inform our politics on a fundamental level. And it must inform our commitment both to advocating for comprehensive immigration reform and standing against SB 1070.</p>

It uses McCain's voice from the recording of his 2002 book, in which McCain recalls publicly supporting South Carolina's right to fly the Confederate flag, even though he personally opposed it. McCain says on the recording: " ... it could come down to lying or losing. I chose lying." The ad suggests McCain is again lying about his record on illegal immigration.

    "The federal court ruling Wednesday that set aside key provisions of Arizona's controversial immigration law is causing some Californians to rethink their efforts to boycott the state." Many believe that the Arizona Gangs vs California Gangs may repeatedly TORCH each others landscape that would usurp state resources and ultimately financially bankrupt the states as well as set off an interstate war so to speak. NOT GOOD! Let's pray this never happens!

    TO ALL FREEPERS, I know SB1070 despite setbacks from the federal gov. is a step in the right direction EVERY state must take if they want to secure their borders. But something in me doubts even if SB1070 was a national law it would only be a TREATMENT for the disease of illegal crossings NOT AN IMMUNITY. So what would be a PERMANENT to the illegals problem? i propose every state have the right to secede from the federal gov. and secure their borders on their own terms. Build a wall around their borders taller then Israel's security wall and...

    PHOENIX, July 29 (Reuters) - Arizona lodged an appeal on Thursday seeking to lift a judge's ruling blocking key parts of the state's controversial law cracking down on illegal immigrants, the governor's office said. Lawyers for Governor Jan Brewer and Arizona asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco to lift a preliminary injunction blocking parts of the law, known as SB 1070, and sought to expedite consideration of the state's appeal.

    PHOENIX – A judge has blocked the most controversial sections of Arizona's new immigration law from taking effect Thursday, handing a major legal victory to opponents of the crackdown. The law will still take effect Thursday, but without many of the provisions that angered opponents — including sections that required officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws.
  • Arizona Hotels Thriving Despite Boycotts Over Immigration Law

    Arizona's tourism industry has a target on its back, but the widespread boycotts over the state's immigration law might not be hitting the mark. Recent data compiled by a market research group show hotel bookings across the state -- as well as in tourism hot spots Phoenix and Scottsdale -- have been on the rise the past two months. The numbers could dispel warnings from local officials that Arizona stands to lose a fortune and dampen the chances that cities and organizations will be able to compel the state to reverse its immigration law by choking its economy with a...
  • Sanctuary City Prevention Act Introduced (Duncan D. Hunter)

    As the Department of Justice goes to court today to block the implementation of Arizona’s immigration law, Congressman Hunter has introduced legislation to deny DOJ any funding to continue challenging the Arizona law until action is taken against sanctuary cities. The legislation – the Sanctuary City Prevention Act – follows a recent report that DOJ is unwilling to force sanctuary cities into compliance with immigration law, despite filing a lawsuit against Arizona on the basis that the state law interferes with federal enforcement duties. “It’s ironic that the basis of the Obama Administration’s lawsuit against Arizona is that immigration enforcement...

    Most of us wouldn't even be Americans if it weren't for immigration. I was born in Kearney, Arizona--a small town between Phoenix and Tucson. But my own parents came from Mexico. They came, like so many people before them, to make a better life for their kids. My dad worked in the copper mines, and my mom worked at Motorola. Today, I've achieved what my parents hoped for. I'm a proud Arizonan with three kids. I work for the Town of Gilbert Water Department, making sure our hydrants are safe, water lines are clear, and our system is running smoothly....
