Last week, the InJustice Department accused the sheriff of mistreating illegal aliens, after a three year investigation into his department. Anyone with half a brain knows this report was politically motivated, as it was released on the one year anniversary of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry's murder via guns from the DOJ's Fast & Furious program.
Now, word comes that ICE is refusing to take illegals being detained in Maricopa County (KPHO, via FreeRepublic).
Sheriff Joe Arpaio had his first run-in with a group of suspected illegal immigrants since things heated up with the Department of Justice.
The Department of Justice recently revoked his deputies' ability to check immigration status inside Maricopa County jails.
Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Lt. Justin Griffin says they pulled over a vehicle and have eight people in their custody for human smuggling at 35th Avenue and Durango.
Griffin says they attempted to give four of the detainees to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but MCSO says ICE is refusing to take them.
Griffin says, "We asked ICE, 'If we were DPS, would you take them from us?' And we were told specifically, 'Yes.'"

First, the State of Arizona gets sued because the racist Eric Holder won't enforce the laws, then he abuses his power to attack a law enforcement officer for upholding federal immigration law. I haven't even mentioned how Holder is so on the wrong that he has to resort to playing the race card against critics. That's why Holder is a racist...everything is viewed by him in the prism of race, and getting even.
This is one more reason Eric Holder should be impeached, maybe he should even put in one of Sheriff Joe's tent city camps, complete with bologna sandwiches, Fox News and pink underwear.
