Sheriff Joe Arpaio teams up with Arizona pol to plan a new 'tent city' for illegal immigration

The controversial Phoenix-area sheriff has teamed up with Arizona State Treasurer and candidate for governor Dean Martin to introduce an ambitious new plan for border security.

The Zero Tolerance plan includes a border fence and enhanced security, but proposes stronger detention policies than Martin's Republican rival, Gov. Jan Brewer.

Martin envisions a tent city to house the influx of illegal aliens expected to be arrested once the state's tough new immigration law goes into effect.

"I will work with Sheriff Joe to establish a statewide tent city specifically to house illegal aliens convicted of crimes in Arizona," Martin's plan reads.

Arpaio has set up similar tent facilities as an extension of his Maricopa County Jail.

He has also instituted such oddball policies as providing his inmates with pink underwear and prison-stripe uniforms. He boasted back in 2003 of running the first female chain gang in history.

"Just yesterday Sheriff Arpaio and I met, and he endorsed my plan," Martin said in a statement.

Martin is trailing Gov. Brewer for the Republican nomination for governor, according to the latest Rasmussen poll.

Brewer received a huge boost after signing the state's tough, but popular, new immigration law.

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, is the man for our next Prisident of the U.S.
Do you think Arpaio would give the Army General the Troops he ask for? and not in 90 days?
Do you think Arpaio would give the CEO of B.P. a call?
Do you think Arpaio would give Nancy Polosi what she realy needs? (a 180 gr. of good ol American lead)
Do you think Arpaio would give give a shit about S.E.I.U., Sharpton?

Do you think Arpaio would bow to a forgin thug? Camel Jockey?

I dislike the man, he would have did well in the death camps in WW2

If a man can make you mad just by talking, then he is far brighter than you.

dislike the man??

dislike the man traderjac? I Know where yer comm'n from. Lots of people dislike the Man. Reason they dislike him is kinda like the new way of bringing up kids. People are thinking that they need to put their kid in time out, when the kid needs their butt busted. Or like my neighbor who came over one evening and told me that my kid told his kid to hit his little sister. So the asshole blames my kid for his kids crap. hasn't the balls to take it to his kid. The little bastard puts fireworks on my trampoline and lights it, burns a hole in it tells daddy he didn't do it. So daddy is rasing a pussy who blames the world for his fuck up!
Kind ua like people blaming Arpaio for Tent City, coldcut sandwitches an water, then charges for the damn food. pink underware, no coffee, and Joe Arpaio is an asshole!! for makin life hard on the prisoners! They arn't there to drink coffee, it ain't the HILTON Son, sounds like you need to be around a Man who knows life. Joe is tryin to keep them from returning back to suck on the TIT. Like generations of wellfare slobs. When you are ready to open your mind and watch Arpaio apply disipline to people who need it. then and only then you will see a real MAN.
You are doing just fine traderjack, hang in there Son, me un samD will steer ya in the right direction. Hellsakes you shuda seen me in my younger days , I thought I knew more also : )
Lyle
