Rest assured that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is no “Barney Fife” the iconic deputy sheriff character made famous by the late actor Don Knotts, who presided over the sleepy little community of “Mayberry”.

If anything this sheriff has no reservations in calling it like it is, the blunt plain speaking Arpaio speaking on the Aaron Klein Investigative Radio show left no doubt on where he stands on the issue of immigration; “That’s common sense,” said Arpaio. “I don’t think that’s something that nobody knows. You make them here legally so they can vote.”

He continued; “There’s a push afoot nationally to sign up more Hispanics to be able to vote,” said Arpaio. “But you have to be careful now. But if you legalize these guys, these people, they are going to vote.”

Obviously Arpaio is correct in that the strategy within the Democratic Party is to distract the voting public by using voter ID as wedge issue and as a guise to distract from the real issue of granting voting rights to illegal aliens.

Eliseo Medina, a former immigration adviser to President Obama, boasted in 2009 that granting citizenship to millions of illegal aliens would expand the “progressive” electorate and help ensure a “progressive” governing coalition for the long-term.

Medina is the current secretary-treasurer of the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Medina and Gutierrez served on Obama’s National Latino Advisory Council.

During the interview, Arpaio urged Republican president candidates to discuss the issue of drug trafficking when talking about border security.

“Ninety-nine percent” of those arrested for bringing drugs into Maricopa County, Arizona are illegal aliens,” according Arpaio. “Everybody talks about the border related to illegal immigration. Can’t they throw in another little issue just for kicks? And say, oh by the way, tons of drugs are coming across the border too.”

He added, “Where’s the president? How come he is not talking about the drugs coming across the border?”
