Censure Joe Wilson

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

If you’re wondering who “Joe Wilson” is, he is the Congressman who failed to control himself and in an emotional outburst called President Obama a liar during Obama’s recent Congressional address.

We can’t have anyone who tells the truth, 馃槈

So the House of Representatives has to vote to censure Representative Joe Wilson!

Imagine that:

A politician who actually tells the truth!

A United States Congressman who can’t control himself and blurts out the fact that the President just lied to the American people.*

Thank Maricopa County Supervisors for Approving Sheriff Arpaio鈥檚 Immigration-Enforcement Funding

This is a special message for NumbersUSA members in Maricopa County, Arizona and surrounding areas.

On May 20, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors voted to accept $1.6 million from the state to help pay for Sheriff Joe Arpaio鈥檚 illegal-immigration enforcement efforts. Last year, former Gov. Janet Napolitano stripped Sheriff Arpaio of these funds and redirected them to a fugitive task force. The state legislature gave the money back to Arpaio in a budget package earlier this year. The money will pay for 15 new positions: one lieutenant, two sergeants, and 12 deputies and supporting supplies.

Please email the following Supervisors to thank them for voting to accept the state funding:

*
*
Fulton Brock – fbrock@mail.maricopa.gov
*
Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox voted against accepting funding so please convey your disapproval via email – mrwilcox@mail.maricopa.gov
*
Supervisor Don Stapley was absent for the vote. Separate drafting points are included below.

聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Thank you for voting to accept $1.6 million from the state legislature for Sheriff Joe Arpaio鈥檚 illegal immigration enforcement efforts. Your common-sense approach to illegal immigration shows a great concern for the welfare of your constituents. Sheriff Arpaio is working hard to expedite the removal of illegal aliens who pose a threat to our communities and a burden on tax payers. The federal government has shown that it cannot enforce our immigration laws alone. I’m proud to live in a county that is willing to do its fair share of the work.
聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 As you know, immigration is not just a federal issue. When the federal government fails to enforce the laws, states and towns face the consequences. States have an inherent authority to protect the public welfare and the courts have ruled that state and local police can enforce any federal law unless it has been specifically forbidden by Congress. It is impossible to conceive of a way to tackle our illegal immigration problem without using state and local police as a force multiplier. Counties across the country should take a page out of your book.
聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Sheriff Arpaio鈥檚 efforts accomplish two very important things. They send a message to illegal aliens that there are consequences for violating our laws and encourages them to self-deport, which, in turn will benefit our communities by making jobs available for unemployed legal residents and saving the taxpayers’ money. Your support for Sheriff Arpaio stands in stark contrast to the failed “sanctuary” policies that some local governments practice in Arizona. I am glad you understand that one cannot discourage law-breaking by protecting and/or rewarding the violators.
聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 It took over 20 years to create today’s illegal immigration crisis, and it may take another ten to substantially reduce our current illegal population; however, your voting to accept funds for Sheriff Arpaio鈥檚 efforts was an important step. It will help reduce crime and relieve hard-working, tax-paying citizens of the burden illegal immigration creates in our communities. Thank you for sending a message to the state and the rest of the country that you will not allow Maricopa County to be a safe-haven for illegal aliens.

聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 I am extremely disappointed in your vote against accepting state funds for Sheriff Joe Arpaio鈥檚 illegal-immigration enforcement efforts. Your approach to illegal immigration shows a total disregard for the welfare of your constituents. Sheriff Arpaio is working hard to expedite the removal of聽illegal aliens who pose a threat to our communities and a burden on tax payers, but it is clear that you do not want him to enforce immigration laws. I will remember your actions the next time you run for office.
聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Immigration enforcement is not just a federal issue. When the federal government fails to enforce the laws, states and towns face the consequences. States have an inherent authority to protect the public welfare and the courts have ruled that state and local police can enforce any federal law unless it has been specifically forbidden by Congress. Sheriff Arpaio is tackling our illegal immigration problem and helping to diminish the unrestrained violence associated with human and drug smuggling. You have become part of the problem, not part of the solution.
聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Your actions to undermine Sheriff Arpaio demonstrate that you have sold out to open-borders groups and big business. What could you possibly be thinking? I cannot pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV without hearing the news of yet another illegal-alien related kidnapping or murder. The innocent and guilty alike are being killed while you fret about Sheriff Arpaio not being sensitive to the feelings of illegal aliens. It鈥檚 time that you to concern yourself with those who voted you into office, not those who make a mockery of the rule of law.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!
