Mexican Drug Cartel Allegedly Puts a Price on Arizona Sheriff's Head

Powered by Topple

Editor’s Note – The situation in Arizona is a powder keg waiting to go off!  With the radical far left now bussing in professional protesters over the weekend to ramp up the protests, it may not take long.

Meanwhile, Obama continues his assault on the state of Arizona, putting his Progressive agenda before the welfare of the citizens of the country.  And, just as we’ve seen in the Middle East with the flotilla, his actions are emboldening the Mexican drug cartel who have the audacity to put a bounty on an Arizona Sheriff.

Just how many American citizens feel that the federal government is now our enemy?  This is a very troubling time in our country, and President Barack Obama is failing the American people.  It is a critical time calling for true leadership and, instead, we have a community organizer at the switch!

What will it take, folks…

 

Mexican Drug Cartel Allegedly Puts a Price on Arizona Sheriff’s Head

“Our own government has become our enemy”

PHOENIX – He’s been at the center of the discussions and controversies surrounding illegal immigration enforcement in Arizona for quite a while.

On the day parts of Arizona’s immigration law, SB 1070, went into effect, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is in the news for another reason: there’s a price on his head – allegedly offered by a Mexican drug cartel.

The audio message in Spanish is a bit garbled, but the text is clear.

“It’s offering a million dollars for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s head and offering a thousand dollars for anyone who wants to join the Mexican cartel.”

Lisa Allen of the Sheriff’s office says they believe the message originated in Mexico.

Although the Sheriff has received numerous death threats in the past, they believe this threat is credible because of its timing.

“Arpaio gets threats pretty routinely, but obviously with this heightened awareness of his role in the immigration issue we’ve got to take this one a little bit more seriously with a million dollar contract out on him,” said Allen.

In other news, Pinal County (Ariz.) Sheriff Paul Babeu told CNSNews.com that rather than help law enforcement in Arizona stop the hundreds of thousands of people who come into the United States illegally, the federal government is targeting the state and its law enforcement personnel.

The sheriff was referring to the law suits filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the U.S. Department of Justice challenging the state’s new immigration law.

“So who has partnered with the ACLU?” Babeu said in a telephone interview. “It’s the president and (Attorney General) Eric Holder himself.  And that’s simply outrageous.”

“Our own government has become our enemy and is taking us to court at a time when we need help,” Babeu said.
