Fury in Phoenix

Lawman’s raid on immigrants spark fury in Phoenix  

sheriff-200.jpg “They just don’t want me enforcing the illegal immigration laws. They think they can intimidate me. They can’t,” said Arpaio, a Republican, who is running for re-election in November.

Notice-the article makes it CLEAR that Sheriff Joe is a Republican, yet somehow the writers/editors omit that Phil Gordon and Mary Rose Wilcox are democrats. Tsk! Tsk!


The article was primarily about Arpaio, not Gordon and Wilcox. Having said that, I do agree it would have been better to include their party affiliation so readers could put the dispute into a political context: GBU Editor

It doesn’t matter which, if any, political party a person is. What’s important is whether or not they are for Americans and against Illegal Aliens. Anyone not against Illegal Aliens is un-American.
