Molavian: Or we could just let them in and tax them, and shut down any business that hires illegals.


So... let them in and tax them (to take jobs in a time when the Obama recession has ensured there aren't enough to go around), then shut down the businesses hiring them?  The reason so much crime is perpetrated by illegal immigrants is because, by definition, they are willing to flout the law.  Putting them in a situation where crime is their only way to survive is not a great plan.  Especially not when drones and landmines.  We probably wouldn't even need that many landmines-- once word got out, it would probably scare a lot of people off.

He has half a million to waste on Smith & Wesson M&P15s, but refuses to feed prisoners - in many cases, people awaiting trial - human-grade food or to house them.
Of course he wants and has the budget for drones.

Come live in Arizona.  Once you've dealt with the effects of all the illegal immigration, dealt with the floods of Mexican's who don't speak English, don't contribute to the general economy, ignore laws and common courtesy, and generally raise the crime levels, you'll understand where he, and MANY of us here, are coming from.

UNC_Samurai: The people of Maricopa County make a compelling case for disenfranchisement.


The people of Maricopa County elected him, multiple times if memory serves.

I did like the line about "catching drug peddlers entering the United States", but the very next line he says that they're not going to use it for illegal immigration purposes.  So that must mean that all the drug smugglers wear special IR sticks that ID themselves to the IR cameras on the drones, and there's no reason at all to stop everyone that the drone finds to search them for drugs and in the process, ascertain their citizenship status.

Crewmannumber6: I have no problem with drones patrolling the border, seems like the most reasonable use for them that I've heard.


Hm. Joe's county isn't on the border.

Forced Perspective: Arpaio, well-known for his stance on immigration, said if he gets the drones, they would not be used to find and arrest undocumented immigrants in the desert.

I'm surprised to hear that.  The paths used by illiegal immigrants are extremely well-known-- so well-known that aiders and abbetors to their criminal activity set up resupply points so they can get things like water.  Given that, the bulk of illegal immigration could be stopped with drones and landmines.  Obviously this is not a complete solution, but it is the low-hanging fruit.

That's a somewhat generous and grandiose title for Sheriff Joe supporters. Let's just stick with "retards."
