I read every story you guys post on the Arpaio crew, and I agree he's a thug. His actions seem so far outside the constitution, I can't believe anyone COULD support him. I truly believe it is my responsibility as a citizen to use whatever legal means are available to bounce him - and his corrupt cronies - off of the public payroll.
My support wanes almost completely when you focus so vehemently on amnesty for people who entered this country illegally. Calling those of us who don't support you "nativists" just polarizes the issue and makes compromise impossible.
The stories you've posted over time might actually melt a few hearts, and make solutions more likely, if they weren't so militant.
I could never support an amnesty, because that's already been done once - and we were rewarded with another wave of "hopefuls". It isn't MY responsibility as a lawful US citizen to "fix" Mexico, and it's not like we've had any luck "helping" Iraq or Afganistan.
If I get to choose where my tax dollars go, I'd rather they went to my old hometown, Flint Michigan - which looks more like Mexico everyday. There's plenty of impoverished folks there who need food, healthcare and jobs.
