He forces people to live in "his" Tent City, in a land where summers last half the year and temperatures can be 115 and upwards in the tents.

Sheriff Arpaio is proud of all this. He considers these things his great accomplishments. He says so whenever he gets a chance to be in front of a TV camera.

To whomever out there who can find legal means to end his reign of terror and abuses, you have my hopes and prayers.

Lady must be from Lodi: In California, we love Sheriff Arpaio! Send him here!

But are they "wackos"?: Leftist wackos railing against Arpaio work in his favor.

We don't have an "immigrant problem": I also believe they are human beings first, that they should always be treated humanely.

However, it is irresponsible and selfish for parents to cross the border illegally with their families. They put undue pressure and stress on not only themselves but on the family that crossed with him or her.

We do not have an immigrant problem; we have an illegal alien problem. What's two years of waiting for proper paperwork compared to two years of living in complete fear and doubt about your future?

The real traitors "spew [racist] rhetoric": Our country is founded by white people who came here uninvited without documentation, who proceeded to slaughter and displace any natives that got in their way.

In founding this government, a fundamental right was given to all human beings, that all men (and women) are created equal and have equal rights. Any white person who is mad at an illegal immigrant also better hate him- or herself because at least 90 percent of Americans have ancestors who did the same thing as the Hispanic population is doing right now.

It is a long, difficult task to become a legal U.S. citizen. This should not be the case, as it was not a problem at the time of the nation's inception. Obviously, we have failed to adapt our immigration policy to handle the honest, hard-working people who seek prosperity in a land that promises equality and freedom.

If you are under the impression that all Mexicans here illegally are criminals who just want to leech off of our society, you are a very narrow-minded, ignorant, and racist individual.

Ask yourself, who is really committing treason? Is it the peaceful protesters using the rights guaranteed to them by the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights; or is it people who spew rhetoric downplaying this wonderful gathering of people acting as true patriots?

[The marchers were] responding to the call of duty laid upon them by the founders of this country.

Standing up against waste of human life: I am just one of the thousands standing up against the abuses and constant constitutional violations Joe Arpaio has been doing for years. I was one of the victims of his abuse years ago and will continue to stand up to this waste of a human life until he and his goons are in jail or booted from office.

The bilious attacks by the left on this site are indicitave of their specious, shallow "thinking" overall. Besides being fascistic philosophical bedfellows of Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao and other mass murderers (all in the cause of the Greater Good, of course,) they miss the point entirely by focusing on Sheriff Joe.

Their "problem" is with the citizens who elect this stalwart and overwhelmingly support him. And, by the way, I would much rather be a prisoner of Joe's than a resident of one of those "Re-education Camps" envisioned by Obama's friends and cohorts in the Weather Underground.
