Maricopa County, Arizona, sheriff, Joe Arpaio, has a solution to America's growing illegal immigration problem; his solution? Send in the troops.
Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio wants to send American soldiers into Mexico to stop illegal immigrant invasion.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - During a radio interview on June 29, Arpaio outlined his proposal.
End world hunger through "prayer and action."
"If we are worried about the danger, then I would send the military across the border, work with [Mexico's] military bilaterally and get the job done," he said. "That's what I would do and we'd clean up this mess."
"Of course, you have to get the Mexican president to OK it," he noted. "I would just go in there and have a few drinks with him and get the job done."
Arpaio, known for his tough stance on illegal immigration, was speaking on Aaron Klein Investigative Radio on New York's 970 AM, when he was asked how he would deal with immigration if he was advising the White House.
"Why do they have to go to court? The minute you cross the border put them on an airplane and sent them back."
The sheriff defended this potential breech of foreign policy by citing a former post he possessed.
"I spent many, many years as a regional director in Mexico City, Central, South America; also other assignments. Head of the DEA in Texas and Arizona . I would go back to what I did in Mexico. My agents carried guns and we worked right along with the Mexican authorities locking up dope peddlers."
He complained that 38% of illegal-aliens in his jails are rearrested as they come back over.
"Either they are coming across that border multiple times or they are being dumped on the streets of Arizona."
