At least Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona is willing to enforce the law. A posse of 100 volunteers and sheriff's deputies will patrol the Phoenix area and arrest any illegal immigrants.
"It's important to send the message out to stay in Mexico and don't come roaming around here hoping you're going to get amnesty," said Arpaio. "We're going to arrest any illegal who violates this new law," he said. "I'm not going to turn these people over to federal authorities so they can have a free ride back to Mexico. I'll give them a free ride into the county jail."
Already, about 120 illegals have been arrested using a new state smuggling law.
Of course the Mexican Consul General's Office in Phoenix has an attorney and is planning to actively interfere and challenge our laws.
I wonder if Bush will instruct the Border Patrol to advise Mexico of Sheriff Arpaio and the posse's whereabouts so as not to impact the drug traffic and people smuggling.
It's becoming really hard to tell who the good guys are anymore.
