Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has gone on the record stating his refusal to enforce Obama’s latest amnesty law in Maricopa County, AZ.
During an interview with Phoenix’s ABC15 the tough-as-nails sheriff said, "I think people from Mexico are now going to feel, 'Hey come on in and we'll get by with it.' But it won't happen in this county. They will still be arrested."
The Associated Press estimates that as many as 800,000 illegal immigrants will no longer have to fear deportation under the Obama administration’s new amnesty law announced this past Friday. The politically motivated law came from the Oval Office in hopes of shoring up the Latino vote in Obama’s favor by giving a free pass to young illegal immigrants brought here by their parents or other relatives.
Mexican President Thanks Obama for Immigration Changes
The Weekly Standard reports that Mexican president Felipe Calderon recently thanked Barack Obama for his Friday announcement to grant backdoor amnesty to 800,000+ young illegal immigrants:
“I would like to thank personally, and on behalf of the Mexican nation, President Barack Obama for his valuable decision by executive order to give an opportunity for young people who were not born in the United States but who arrived in that great nation before they were 16 years of age, or who are studying in university, or who have served in the United States armed forces, for them not to be deported for at least a period of two years, so this is a clear and certain situation for them.
We believe that this is very just. It's a humanitarian action. And it's an unprecedented action in our opinion. And in this sense, Mr. President, we would like to thank you for the valor and courage that you had in implementing this action. I am sure that many, many families in the United States of America are thankful to you as well.”
