Now Holder is wasting his time suing Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Eric Holder might want to focus his efforts on actually securing our borders from foreign invaders, al Qaeda, and any one else with a bomb in their jock-strap. Instead, Eric holder is wasting tax payers money not only going after Jan Brewer and her reasonable, lawful illegal immigration policy, but now he wants to attack Sheriff Arpaio for protecting the citizens of his county and correctly applying the law to illegal immigrants there.
The Justice Department says an Arizona sheriff known for his efforts against illegal immigrants has refused to cooperate with a civil rights investigation and the department is threatening to sue.

Since March 2009, the U.S. Justice Department has been investigating Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office in Phoenix for alleged discrimination and for unconstitutional searches and seizures. Arpaio says the inquiry is focused on his immigration efforts.

In a letter, assistant attorney general Thomas Perez gives the sheriff's office until Aug. 17 to turn over documents first requested last year in what the department calls an inquiry into claims of discrimination based on national origin.

My first question is, did they arrest and/or send back any person who was not an illegal immigrant.

Keep in mind this same Sheriff already had special ICE funding pulled from his department for training his officers in illegal immigration enforcement and was bitch slapped in a very public move by Janet Napolitano last year. In what could only be seen as a bad power play, the DHS stripped Arpaio of part of his federal authority to enforce immigration law by changing its rules under a program that previously allowed local police to enforce those laws.

It is time for Eric Holder and this Administration to stop debasing our rights and the Constitution. Secure the borders and stop assailing those watching out for the American people.
