The Justice Department is going to sue Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, for allegedly targeting Hispanics in a bid to crack down on illegal immigrants. Some have speculated that the government is going to use lawsuits against the state of Arizona, its schools and Sheriff Arpaio to force Arizona to stop enforcing immigration laws.
As for the allegations that Arpaio’s office is targeting Hispanics, you don’t say. It’s not like Arizona shares a 370-mile border with Mexico, or that nine out of ten of the people there illegally are Latino.
What’s next, DOJ? Are you going to sue West Virginia because their attempts to combat meth use unfairly single out rednecks? Are you going to go after the San Francisco vice squad because they just seem to nab a bunch of gay guys? I’m going to go out on a limb here, but I have a hunch the beat cops who work Little Italy may arrest a disproportionate number of wops. But shhh, don’t tell anybody.
Over three quarters of all illegal immigrants are Hispanic, and if you’re going to enforce immigration law, there’s no way to do it without focusing on Hispanics. Don’t get me wrong, I realize we need Hispanic immigrants. Both our economy and my love of Latina preggo videos are directly dependent on them. I’m just stating the obvious.
