Go Joe

All last week the people of Phoenix witnessed public outbursts by their sheriff, Joe Arpaio, as he railed against the Department of Homeland Security for supposedly trying to limit his ability to enforce federal immigration laws. He vowed to keep scouring Maricopa County for people whose clothing, accents and behavior betrayed them as likely illegal immigrants. He said he had already nabbed more than 32,000 people that way, and announced his next immigrant sweep for Oct. 16.

This is the lead paragraph of an editorial in the New York Times which opposes the enforcement of the law by the sheriff out in Arizona. The entire editorial can be read here, but if there was any doubt about whether Sheriff Joe was doing the right thing, this should tip your conclusion to the affirmative.
