There Goes Sheriff Joe’s Next Re-election Stunt



Poor Sheriff Joe, how are you going to get re-elected if you can’t persecute brown people? I just had to laugh when I saw this news clip today saying that the federal government has finally limited Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s ability to conduct immigration raids and road blocks. Now his relentless campaign to harass brown people and check their immigration status on the streets of Arizona has been seriously curtailed.

I’m waiting for a Native American road block to send him back to Italy.
