what do you think about the sweeps that are occuring??

Sherriff Joe Arpaio of maricopa county has sweeps that he does in areas where many illegals are living. In Arizona there are so many drop houses and coyotes there are drug lords living in arizona just last week a police officer got hit by a drunk driver. the driver was illegal who got deported many time and kept coming back here. he also had many DUI's in the past which is why he was also deported.

so joe arpaio enforces sweeps to gather the illegals and send them back to whichever country they have came from. do you think that is wrong????

  • GO JOE GO. Illegal is illegal is illegal. This country is the easiest in the world to immigrate to. Do it the right/legal way or be prepared to be sent back.

  • well it's racial profiling in a way, because if you are looking for illegal aliens from Mexico you don't stop people with blonde hair and blue eyes, or little old grandmas in wheelchairs. BUT this is not bad, it's using common sense and doing what you are paid to do. The key word here is these people are here ILLEGALLY. They have no right to be in our country until they come in the right way.
