Former Maricopa County sheriff and current U.S. Senate candidate Joe Arpaio lauded the Trump administration’s decision to sue California over its sanctuary state policy and called for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to increase its presence in the state “big time.”
“It is a great move by President Trump,” Arpaio told The Western Journal. “They want sanctuary for the whole state of California. They don’t want ICE involved at all, which is very sad because that is going to increase the crime if you can’t stop people.”
“I hope the president is successful,” he said. “I think he should take an extra step. I think he should just send the federal people in there big time and enforce the federal law regardless of what the state wants to do.”
“Bring in a hundred or two hundred ICE agents and keep enforcing the federal laws regardless of what the sanctuary state of California wants,” Arpaio added. “That would be my advice.”
“America’s Toughest Sheriff” noted the irony in the fact that the same legal justification used by the Obama Justice Department to target him and the state of Arizona regarding the enforcement of immigration law is being employed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions against California.
In 2010, then Attorney General Eric Holder sued Arizona over state law S.B. 1070, which — in accordance with federal law — required any aliens in the United States to have proper identification at all times, and empowered state law enforcement officers (including Arpaio’s sheriffs) to attempt to determine immigration status during “lawful stop, detention or arrest” for other suspected crimes.Politico reported the DOJ’s suit against California is modeled after the one brought by the Obama administration, which affirmed the federal government’s supremacy over the matter of immigration.
Additionally, it barred state and local officials or agencies from restricting enforcement of immigration laws, and imposed penalties on sheltering, hiring or transporting unregistered aliens.
“Setting immigration policy and enforcing immigration laws is a national responsibility,” Holder stated at the time regarding his decision to sue Arizona over the law. “Seeking to address the issue through a patchwork of state laws will only create more problems than it solves.”
The Supreme Court, by-in-large, agreed with the Obama administration’s argument in 2012, finding immigration law is the purview of the federal government. However, it did affirm the ability of state law enforcement officials to seek to ascertain the immigration status of those stopped for other suspected criminal activity.Holder further argued that the Constitution “forbids” Arizona from replacing federal policy “with its own state-specific immigration policy.”
“The National Government has significant power to regulate immigration,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion. “Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration while that process continues, but the State may not pursue policies that undermine federal law.”
Sessions’ suit against California alleges obstruction of federal immigration enforcement and targets three “sanctuary state” focused laws passed by the legislature in 2017.
S.B. 54 prohibits state and local officials from sharing information with federal immigration officials and also bars the transfer of certain immigrants into federal custody.
A.B. 450 forbids private employers from cooperating with the federal government with immigration enforcement at the workplace.
Finally, A.B. 103 attempts to regulate detention facilities used by the federal government to hold immigration prisoners.
Arpaio wished Sessions’ DOJ well in the suit and believes it will likely be successful.
“I think the feds will win this one,” the lawman said, but noted the 9th U.S. Circuit of Appeals may prove problematic in the near term.
Arpaio is currently a candidate for U.S. Senate in Arizona. His challengers for the Republican nomination include Congresswoman Martha McSally and former state Sen. Kelli Ward.


  1. I agree this would be a great thing to do. I however understand state's rights and sovereignty and this action is a blatant violation of the separation of powers within the bill of rights. The Federal level of governance has no rights to dictate what the states choose to do. Cliven Bundy proved this. If the Feds are allowed to interfere with the Direction of California then Lavoy Finnicum and Cliven Bundy stood for nothing.

    It is up to the people within California to step up and take control of their sovereign state. California at this time has 17 people coming together to reorganize their state assembly to return to self governance. That is where the power of the state is.

  2. "In light of recent desperate actions by our deeply corrupted Congress, it is vital to remember that Benjamin Franklin warned lawmakers who sacrifice our freedoms for an illusion of safety, that they deserve neither freedom nor safety themselves."

  3. As a California Born and Bred real person and current land owner; I ask as well as my friends and neighbors, SEND THE FED'S IN AND REMOVE THE STATE GOVERNMENT AND ESTABLISH A GOVERNMENT OF WE THE PEOPLE!

    California Has Lost All Control of State Government and the people are crying out.

    1) Build a Wall of Men around California and do not let any people out without thorough VETTING.

    2)Do it NOW... Even the local and state law enforcement guys/gals are divided.

    3) This guy is not in California any longer and lives in the "REAL 47 LOWER OTHER STATES" and will gladly return to California after the Admin Helps Us Deport the illegals, their kids, their half breed families for citizenships and their great lost uncle..... GET THEM ALL OUT INCLUDING THE ASIANS!!!

    California is to Dangerous for a Californian to return home too.

    Build the wall of men to keep the mice from leaving Redding to Sacramento to San Francisco to Fresno and Bakersfield to Reno Nevada on into Las Vegas straight on into Phoenix and back into L.A. in thru San Diego...... THAT IS ENEMY TERRITORY... IN MINDSET AND IN MODERN DAY LAW PRACTICES...

    Save California From Californians!!!

    Please, I want to move back Home, my beloved California.

    The suit refers to the state interfering with Federal law. Not violating Federal law. California will loose this one and It will provide the Feds with enough leverage to remove ICE enforcement without any legal consequences. Trump has basically trapped California into dealing with the problem of Illegal immigration or loosing federal support, while they self destruct under no enforcement. Trump is basically telling California, enforce the law or suffer,,, Without ICE your going to see crime go way up in California. Meanwhile jerry the retard brown will blame this all on Trump. Ive lived in So Cal all my life and I say build that frikin wall yesterday! Im done with the illegals getting benefits, while our veterans sleep in the streets! Illegals deserve a nice ride back to mexico, nothing more!

    1. I second your opinion with one observation. That is, "I'm done with illegals getting benefits" and so forth.

      Not one thing about saying I'm done with having any illegals (working, student, travel, business, white, black, red, yellow or brown regardless of Christianity or Mormonism or Judiasm and to include the eastern Hindus, Muslims and island mythical taboos);

      The point...
