Because freedom can't protect itself
Who funds you idiots? Seriously, the ACLU is a total joke. This is just one of thousands of lawsuits and "causes" that you waste taxpayer dollars and court time on. Go Sheriff Joe!!!
Is the press allowed in this trial? Who can we follow on Twitter for live updates?
And now this Ass Nozzle is a document forensic expert, declaring President Obama's birth certificate to be unquestionably fraudulent. Of course that wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that the DOJ is doing its job and going after this egocentric moron.
WHEN AN AMERICAN IS STOPPED IN SOUTH AMERICA AND IS TORTURED BY THE POLICE LIKE IT HAPPENS OFTEN IN MEXICO

Oh yeah right! What he is doing is ILLEGAL but God forbid he tries to find the real ILLEGALS. Give me a break:-! Your all a bunch of idiots and a worthless orginaziton. Can't stand any of you.
Oh yeah right ! What he is doing is ILLEGAL but God forbid he tries to find the real illegals. The ACLU is all a bunch of idiots and a worthless organization.
GO Joe! You are awesome. Continue the good work.
all you people that "like" what joe arpaio is doing are as retarded as him. How would you like to be discrimnated like the latinos do. thats just wrong. I like what george lopez had to say about him.
the illegal people are here working and contribute to this messed up economony.. when there are "americans" milking the system, are worthless homeless raping, stealing, etc.
I don't work for the ACLU, nor do I represent them in any way.
I was born here, in the Pennsylvania, USA.
My parents were born here.
My grandparents were born here.
My great-grandparents were from Italy and Germany.
When they arrived on Ellis Island, they passed The Statue of Liberty. That symbol speaks to people of every nation when she says:
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
To all the small-minded, elitist, racist, bigoted, folk who think were should ship the Mexicans out,
F YOU, let 'em stay!
I love the ACLU!
Does he have a birth certificate legally showing he legally can run for president ? Do the ignorant masses even care ? See when this sheriff started being persecuted for racial profiling issues i bet it coincides with the time he started investigating Obama
Joe Arpaio is a nazi we hate him in california he kisses ass es cabron pinche
Your a piece of shit arapiuo
I'm an American Citizen.
I've live here my whole life.
I've been educated here, in the public school system, and my whole family has been here since my great grandfather immigrated from Scotland.
And What Arpaio is doing, by definition of our Constitution, is ILLEGAL. So to the majority of you posters here who can barely speak English, let alone spread your bigotry and nonsense across the world wide web, shut up and pay attention to the ISSUE. Don't make it about Obama, don't make it about Gun Control, don't make it about anything here except this man's racial profiling of legal citizens of the United States of America. He has broken the law, and therefore should be punished. Plain and simple.
And to those who feel that the ACLU is a worthless organization, you clearly haven't studied up on what it means to be an American. Reread the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, and look at simple landmark cases like Brown V. Board of Education. Assuming, of course, you CAN read.
Considering that this site is viewed by many who come here to understand the problems and sides involved in a question with no simple answer, including children, minors, it is very telling that the ACLU does nothing to control the language presented on its site. It also doesn't do anything but add to the heap of smut on the internet when people are allowed to post vulgarities. This behavior negates freedom of speech, and smears mud on the constitution and our country to see that those who are supposedly protecting, do little or nothing to honor that which they swear to be protecting.
And to those of you on both sides of the issues, you should be ashamed of your posts. They do not dignify your opinion, or yourselves. Try thinking of your mother, your children, or future generations reading this and what they will think of us. It's not what side you were on, it's the world you build, that makes us America, and the best place to live in the world.
I'm not supporting all that Sheriff Arpaio is doing, but pulling out the profiling card to oppose actions like this is stupid, and makes you appear foolish. How are you supposed to separate out one group of people of similar racial origins who are breaking the law from the general population if you don't use profiling? Maybe we could set up check points and hold anyone that doesn't have their "papers". That would eliminate any need for profiling.
And I'm sorry but illegal aliens are criminals, and if they don't want to be treated as such, they should apply for visas instead of jumping the border.
