A federal judge delayed a ruling in the racial profiling case against Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office Friday as both sides remain at odds over key remedies to ensure the agency adheres to constitutional requirements.
Sheriff Joe too should have called his immigration sweeps “criminal investigations” and then he could have gotten away with little or no criticism from the media and ACLU. “What’s in a name?”

When did our so-called “Minorities” take over America? I don’t remember Italian-American, German-American, Norwegian-American, Swedish-American, Chinese- American, Indian-American, Pakistani-American, Japanese- American, Russian-American, Armenian-American first generation (off the boat, now off the plane) children being given years and years of “English as a Second Language” learning assistance. Many of these children had to learn a whole new alphabet. On top of that, to learn to read from right to left and from horizontally instead of vertically. Why did these “legal” immigrant children learn English in usually a year, if not less, and it takes our Spanish-speaking Children (same alphabet, same reading the words from right to left) years and years? And still, many read and speak English at a fifth-grade level when they graduate from the 12th grade?

A federal judge on Friday blocked illegal immigrants in the new "deferred action'' program from arguing in court they are being "irreparably harmed'' by the refusal of Gov. Jan Brewer to let them have Arizona drivers' licenses.
Immigration reform, what’s being “reformed”? All I see coming from President Obama, Hispanic activists and sadly our Arizona “Republican In Name Only” (R.I.N.O.) Senators John “Keating Five” McCain and Jeff “S.T.R.I.V.E. Act” Flake is 100 percent Amnesty.
