Sheriff Arpaio Continues Crackdown on Immigration Enforcement

24 Illegal Aliens Arrested on Felony Smuggling Charges

Maricopa County, AZ. – Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies arrested 24 more illegal aliens for felony state human smuggling charges last night during two separate traffic stops. The arrests are a result of the unique policy of Sheriff Joe Arpaio who requires his deputies to arrest and process both smugglers and those being smuggled into the country illegally on felony charges.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is the only law enforcement agency in the state of Arizona enforcing the co-conspirator aspect of the sate human smuggling laws. To date, the sheriff’s office has arrested almost 2,000 illegal aliens under the human smuggling law.

Sheriff Arpaio stated that human smuggling operations have proven to be very dangerous, especially to deputies who are charged with confronting smugglers in desolate remote locations outside of city limits often with little backup. The escalation of violence at the U.S.-Mexico border has also become a cause of concern for sheriff’s deputies.

“My deputies have a very difficult job to do in dealing with these smugglers and I will continue as their Sheriff to arm them with the ability and training to take action when necessary. Unfortunately their safety is at risk and they do not have the luxury to wait around for Washington to initiate policy changes. The threat is here and now” stated Sheriff Arpaio.

Many human smuggling traffic stops have resulted in multiple subjects fleeing vehicles into the desert putting deputies and motorists at risk.

The Sheriff has initiated a special program aimed at training nearly all 900 sworn deputies in his office to detect and arrest illegal aliens when they encounter them. The program was launched after the federal government made the decision to remove 100 deputies’ ability to act as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

  1. I love Sheriff Joe Arpaio. His job has to be the hardest one along the mexican border. The rest of the country does not understand the problem we have down here. All I hear lately is about national security and Sheriff Joe is doing the best job of anyone. You take him away and the USA is in bigger trouble.

    • You are very ignorant. All the americans have family that were immigrants; go back to the history of United States and you will see that this country was formed by people from different areas of Europe, people came from places like Germany, Italy, Spain, etc and their language was not english. Also the Bible shows that all of us come from Noah; the Lord send the flooding nad killed evry human being except for Noah, his wife, his sons and the wives of his sons. Noah was not american and didn’t spoke english. The spanish people are not inferior to the americans; the spanish people come from the spaniards and the spaniards are from Spain which is in Europe. Jesus loves all of us the same no matter if you are black, white or spanish, etc. All of us, we are human beings no matter your race or your country. Jesus is the Lord.
