Why Is the US Government Bringing Suit on Joe Arpaio?

Question by namsaev: Why is the US government bringing suit on Joe Arpaio?
They have already sued the State of Arizona and two counties in Arizona. In Sept 2008 ICE gave Joe a clean bill of health saying his actions were proper when it came to handling illegal aliens. And In Mar 2009 Eric Holder started investigating Sheriff Joe again. Now they are suing Joe Arpaio. And their complaint? He’s not providing them with enough records.

It looks to me if the Justice Department wanted to REALLY do some good they would be leaving Joe alone and doing more to catch illegals.

*LOL* But what does our government do? Set up signs warning US Citizens there are bad guys crossing the border.

Signs in Arizona warn of smuggler dangers
By Jerry Seper and Matthew Cella

The federal government has posted signs along a major interstate highway
in Arizona, more than 100 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, warning
travelers the area is unsafe because of drug and alien smugglers, and a
local sheriff says Mexican drug cartels now control some parts of the

The signs were posted by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) along a
60-mile stretch of Interstate 8 between Casa Grande and Gila Bend, a
major east-west corridor linking Tucson and Phoenix with San Diego.

They warn travelers that they are entering an “active drug and human
smuggling area” and they may encounter “armed criminals and smuggling
vehicles traveling at high rates of speed.” Beginning less than 50 miles
south of Phoenix, the signs encourage travelers to “use public lands
north of Interstate 8” and to call 911 if they “see suspicious

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, whose county lies at the center of
major drug and alien smuggling routes to Phoenix and cities east and
west, attests to the violence. He said his deputies are outmanned and
outgunned by drug traffickers in the rough-hewn desert stretches of his
own county.

“Mexican drug cartels literally do control parts of Arizona,” he said.
“They literally have scouts on the high points in the mountains and in
the hills and they literally control movement. They have radios, they
have optics, they have night-vision goggles as good as anything law
enforcement has.

“This is going on here in Arizona,” he said. “This is 70 to 80 miles
from the border – 30 miles from the fifth-largest city in the United

He said he asked the Obama administration for 3,000 National Guard
soldiers to patrol the border, but what he got were 15 signs.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer condemned what she called the federal
government’s “continued failure to secure our international border,”
saying the lack of security has resulted in important natural
recreational areas in her state being declared too dangerous to visit.

In a recent campaign video posted to YouTube, Mrs. Brewer – standing in
front of one of the BLM signs – attacked the administration over the
signs, calling them “an outrage” and telling President Obama to “Do your
job. Secure our borders.”

BLM spokesman Dennis Godfrey in Arizona said agency officials were
surprised by the reaction the signs generated when they were put up this

“We were perhaps naive in setting the signs up,” he said. “The intention
of the signs was to make the public aware that there is potential
illegal activity here. But it was interpreted in a different light, and
that was not the intent at all.”

He said there should be “no sense that we have ceded the land,” adding
that no BLM lands in Arizona are closed to the public.

“I kind of liken it to if I were visiting a city I were not familiar
with and asked a policeman if it were safe to go in a particular area,”
Mr. Godfrey said.

Rising violence along the border has coincided with a crackdown in
Mexico on warring drug gangs, who are seeking control of smuggling
routes into the United States.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon has waged a bloody campaign against
powerful cartels, yesterday announcing the arrest of Texas-born Edgar
“La Barbie” Valdez – a powerful cartel leader captured outside of Mexico
City on Monday evening.

More than 28,000 people have died since Mr. Calderon launched his
crackdown in late 2006, and the bloodshed shows no sign of ending. Law
enforcement authorities have been warning for more than two years that
the dramatic rise in border violence eventually would spread into the

T.J. Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council, which
represents all 17,500 of the Border Patrol’s front-line agents, said
areas well north of the border are so overrun by armed criminals that
U.S. citizens are being warned to keep out of those locations.
“The federal government’s lack of will to secure our borders is
painfully evident when signs are posted well north of the border warning
citizens that armed and dangerous criminals are roaming through those
areas with impunity,” he said. “Instead of taking the steps necessary to
secure our borders, politicians are attempting to convince the public
that our borders are more secure now than ever before.

“Fortunately, some responsible civil servants are candidly warning the
public about the dangers that exist not just along the border but, in
some cases, well beyond,” he said. “This situation should alarm all
sensible people, and should spur endless demands that our legislators
take whatever actions are necessary to restore law and order to these
