The "toughest sheriff in America" continues to fight the Reconquista. With his no-nonsense and unorthodox methods, Sheriff Joe Arpaio fights Reconquista ignorance in plain English...
Here are some excerpts from this AP story:
"They are in the United States, and they should start speaking English," said Arpaio, who is known for making inmates wear pink underwear and take part in old-style chain gangs in striped uniforms...Too bad he's not seeking re-election. We desperately need more LEOs like this guy. Maybe he'll run for governor.
The aim is to teach the non-English speakers about America's three branches of government, the criminal justice system and communicating their health and safety needs to jail officers, Arpaio said.
He also wants to teach them to sing "God Bless America," a song that the sheriff had ordered to be played each morning in his jails.
Among Arizona's police officials, Arpaio has taken the most aggressive stance in enforcing the state's 14-month-old immigrant smuggling law, arresting more than 300 illegal immigrants so far.
Immigrant groups said the law was intended only for immigrants smugglers and that Arpaio has overreached by charging the people who pay to be sneaked across the border. Arpaio has rejected calls to stop enforcing the law.
