When I saw Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s tweet the other night I wasn’t surprised that I didn’t see a lot of reaction from the pro-Immigrant Latino leaders. Perhaps it wasn’t sanctioned by their head honchos. It seems that what little the Latino pseudo leaders do nowadays, takes forever, because they have to approve “the action” first. Sounds ridiculous to me! Especially when you see a tweet from Joe Arpaio that reads like this one. “We signed up a total of 137 inmates including 15 illegal aliens who wanted to donate their organs.”
So Joe has been hell bent on nabbing “illegals” in his racial profile raids for processing and ultimate deportation. He loves to crunch numbers. As he’s conducting his operations he’s reporting play by play action. Of course he isn’t as damaging as the Phoenix Police is with their constant harassment of brown drivers which in many cases leads not only to a confiscation of their vehicle for not having a driver’s license but in most cases leads to an arrest and a ride to Joe’s jail where with his 287g certification he is authorized to check their legal status which ultimately leads to deportation, of course, not without a lengthy stop at the private prison operated by Corrections Corporation of America for some billable incarceration time to the Feds.
Arpaio get’s hot under the collar when someone tries to lessen his operations as being less damning than that of other police agencies. He outright defends his notoriety as the world’s toughest Sheriff, and he wants the world to know he’s responsible for the most amount of deportations in Arizona.
Well it appears now Sheriff Joe wants to apply a different philosophy to the deportation process. Get out, but leave your organs behind. When you start truly analyzing the hypocrisy of these anti-Immigrant politicians it’s just downright amazing. Imagine how ludicrous that is. To focus solely on the deportation of these unwanted “illegals”, yet to crave their innards for use by U.S. Citizens. It’s truly outrageous!
If, an when, Jan Brewer stops denying dying Arizonans a transplant, these “illegal” innards could very well go to an Immigrant hating U.S. citizen. Hell he could even be a Tea Bagger for all we know.
We shouldn’t be surprised at the hypocrisy from Arizona’s Rethuglicans. While Jan Brewer denied transplants to Arizonans on their deathbed, she transplanted rose bushes from the front of the capitol building to the back lawn where she held her swearing in ceremony, and while Sheriff Joe Arpaio arrests and detains Arizona’s dishwashers and landscapers for ultimate deportation he asks them to leave their illegal internal organs behind. What’s next Arizona?
One thing is for sure Sheriff Joe has got to go!
