Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Phoenix Arizona is regarded by the Conservative movement as the poster boy for all Sheriffs in America to emulate. Imagine several hundred or thousands of Sheriffs in America acting like this racist thug.

“The sheriff says he is keeping the peace, but it seems as if he is doing just the opposite — a useless, reckless churning of fear and unrest.”
— Refers to Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona Conservative Super Star (New York Times editorial. April 9, 2008)

Is Arizona returning to the days of Jim Crow by passing an anti-immigrant and obviously racist law.

"Kris Kobach, the author of the Arizona law and a lawyer at FAIR’s Immigration Reform Law Institute, has been the prime mover behind numerous ordinances that seek to punish those who aid and abet “illegal aliens,” including laws adopted in Farmer’s Branch, Texas, and Hazelton, Pa." Southern Poverty Law Center

Just a reminder that the architect of Arizona's a new immigration law was written by a racist who has been affiliated with a number of Hate Groups and White Supremacist & Nazi Bikers. But the media is reluctant to go after him not surprising since Fox News and CNN treat FAIR Federation of Americans For Immigration Reform as if they were some kind of objective organization and think tank when in fact they have an agenda to reduce all immigration down to a trickle of the right kind of people.

Hate Group Lawyer Drafted Arizona’s Anti-Immigrant Law Posted in Anti-Immigrant by Heidi Beirich on April 28, 2010

Arizona’s controversial anti-immigrant law was written by a lawyer at the legal arm of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which the Southern Poverty Law Center has listed as an anti-immigrant hate group since 2007. The law, a recipe for racial profiling, would make the failure to carry immigration documents a crime and give the police broad power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally. (See statement by SPLC Legal Director Mary Bauer.)

Kris Kobach, the author of the Arizona law and a lawyer at FAIR’s Immigration Reform Law Institute, has been the prime mover behind numerous ordinances that seek to punish those who aid and abet “illegal aliens,” including laws adopted in Farmer’s Branch, Texas, and Hazelton, Pa.

The laws have not done well and have cost some localities immense sums of money to defend. Recently, the city of Albertville, Ala., refused to work with Kobach on just such an ordinance, reportedly because of the high legal costs incurred by these other communities.

Before joining FAIR, Kobach served as U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft’s top immigration adviser. He then moved on to take charge of Department of Justice efforts to tighten border security after the 9/11 attacks. There, he developed a program — the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System — that called for close monitoring of men from Arab and Muslim nations, even legal U.S. residents. The program collapsed due to complaints of racial profiling and discrimination.

Given Kobach’s history with racial profiling, it is particularly alarming that he was tapped by Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio in February to train his officers. A federal grand jury investigation is under way amid a slew of complaints that Arpaio used racial profiling techniques to round up suspected undocumented immigrants. The grand jury is also reportedly looking at whether Arpaio used his office to target political opponents.

FAIR’s poison is now spreading. Legislation similar to Arizona’s has been introduced in Texas, and six other states are considering doing so.

President Obama did go to Arizona a year ago and the protesters wanted him to something about Sheriff Joe Arpaio well it seems not much came of it and so the Arizona legislature felt emboldened last week to pass a racist anti-immigrant law . If Obama could excuse Sheriff Joe Arpaio and George Bush and his thugs well that would be a bit hypocritical.Obama Fail-

Obama visits Arizona

President Obama came to Arizona on February 18,2009 to promote the stimulus plan. Az is ranked second highest in home forecloses.

But 100's showed up to send President Obama another message: Stop Arpaio, 287 (g) and stop the raids that are tearing families and communities apart.

Promote real immigration reform that is humane and sensible. Please contact the President at
Please call and write your congress person to support Conyers investagation of Arpaio

Be warned Talking head but there is a need to understand the details of the law -how far does it go is it a human rights issue or as contravening the US Constitution or Bill of Rights - such as reasonable grounds for asking for ID Does a state have the jurisdiction the right to pass such a law isn't a federal concern.Is it intrusive does it violate one's rights etc.

FAIR: The Teflon Nativists FAIR Marked by Ties to White Supremacy By Heidi Beirich at Southern Poverty law Center

Editor’s Note: After issuing this report in December 2007, the Southern Poverty Law Center added the Federation for American Immigration Reform to its list of hate groups.

The forces seeking to sharply reduce the number of immigrants coming to America won a stunning victory last June, when nativist anger at an "amnesty" for the undocumented scuttled a major bipartisan immigration reform package backed by President Bush. Many members of Congress were completely unprepared for the flood of angry E-mails, phone calls and faxes they received — an inundation so massive that the phone system collapsed under the weight of more than 400,000 faxes.

They should not have been surprised. The furious nativist tide was largely driven by an array of immigration restriction organizations that has been built up over the course of more than 20 years into fixtures in the nation's capital.

The vast majority of these groups were founded or funded by John Tanton, a major architect of the contemporary nativist movement who, 20 years ago, was already warning of a destructive "Latin onslaught" heading to the United States. Most of these organizations used their vast resources in the days leading up to a vote on the bill to stir up a nativist backlash that ultimately resulted in its death.

At the center of the Tanton web is the nonprofit Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the most important organization fueling the backlash against immigration. Founded by Tanton in 1979, FAIR has long been marked by anti-Latino and anti-Catholic attitudes. It has mixed this bigotry with a fondness for eugenics, the idea of breeding better humans discredited by its Nazi associations. It has accepted $1.2 million from an infamous, racist eugenics foundation. It has employed officials in key positions who are also members of white supremacist groups. Recently, it has promoted racist conspiracy theories about Mexico's secret designs on the American Southwest and an alternative theory alleging secret plans to merge the United States, Mexico and Canada. Just last February, a senior FAIR official sought "advice" from the leaders of a racist Belgian political party.


None of this — or any other material evidencing the bigotry and racism that courses through the group — seems to have affected FAIR's media standing. In just the first 10 months of 2007, the group was quoted in mainstream media outlets nearly 500 times with virtually no mention of its more unsavory aspects. FAIR President Dan Stein was featured on CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" at least 12 times in the same period, along with countless appearances on other television news shows. And, perhaps most remarkably of all, FAIR has been taken seriously by Congress, which has called upon its officials to testify on immigration more than 30 times since 2000.

"The sad fact is that attempts to reform our immigration system are being sabotaged by organizations fueled by hate," said Henry Fernandez, a senior fellow and expert on immigration at the Center for American Progress, a "progressive" think tank. "Many anti-immigrant leaders have backgrounds that should disqualify them from even participating in mainstream debate, yet the American press quotes them without ever noting their bizarre and often racist beliefs."

...Tanton has repeatedly suggested that racial conflict will be the outcome of immigration, saying in the WITAN memos that "an explosion" could be the result of whites' declining "power and control over their lives." More than a decade later, in 1998, he made a similar point in an interview with a reporter, suggesting that whites would inevitably develop a racial consciousness because "most people don't want to disappear into the dustbin of history." Tanton added that once whites did become racially conscious, the result would be "the war of each against all."

In 1997, Tanton spelled out his views on the inevitability of immigration overwhelming American whites. "In the bacteriology lab, we have culture plates," he explained. "You put a bug in there and it starts growing and gets bigger and bigger. And it grows until it finally fills the whole plate. And it crashes and dies."

The Founder's Friends
It's no surprise that Tanton employs people with similar views. His long-time deputy, for example, is Wayne Lutton, who works out of Tanton's Petoskey offices and edits the journal, The Social Contract, published by Tanton's press. Lutton is not just linked to white supremacist ideas, many of which he publishes in his journal — he has actually held leadership positions in four white nationalist hate groups: the Council of Conservative Citizens, the National Policy Institute, and The Occidental Quarterly and American Renaissance, both racist publications. Lutton has written for the Journal of Historical Review, which specializes in Holocaust denial. Early on, Lutton and Tanton collaborated on The Immigration Invasion, a nativist screed that has been seized by Canadian border officials as hateful contraband.


Under Lutton's editorial leadership, Tanton's journal has published dozens of articles from prominent white supremacists. One special issue was even devoted to the theme of "Europhobia: The Hostility Toward European-Descended Americans" and featured a lead article from John Vinson, head of the Tanton-backed hate group, the American Immigration Control Foundation. Vinson argued that multiculturalism was replacing "successful Euro-American culture" with "dysfunctional Third World cultures." Tanton elaborated in his own remarks, decrying the "unwarranted hatred and fear" of whites that he blamed on "multiculturalists" and immigrants.

Presumably, these articles and more are well known to Stein, the president of FAIR — until 2003, he was an editorial adviser to The Social Contract. And Stein had lots of company. FAIR board members Sharon Barnes and Diana Hull also have been on the journal's board of editorial advisers. FAIR's current media director, Ira Mehlman, was an adviser in 2001 and 2002, and his essay, "Grand Delusions: Open Borders Will Destroy Society," was published in the journal's pages. Today, FAIR still advertises The Social Contract on its website, saying the journal "offers in-depth studies on immigration, population, language, assimilation, environment, national unity and balance of individual rights and civil responsibilities."

So where does FAIR stand on the matter of Tanton's views? The group has never criticized or sought distance from its founder. In 2004, in fact, Stein insisted that Tanton "never asserted the inferiority or superiority of any racial, ethnic or religious group. Never." The same year, FAIR hosted a gala event honoring Tanton for his 25 years of service. To this day, Tanton remains on FAIR's board.

The Eugenics Connection
Probably the best-known evidence of FAIR's extremism is its acceptance of funds from a notorious, New York City-based hate group, the Pioneer Fund. In the mid-1980s, when FAIR's budgets were still in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, the group reached out to Pioneer Fund, which was established in 1937 to promote the racial stock of the original colonists, finance studies of race and intelligence, and foster policies of "racial betterment." (Pioneer has concentrated on studies meant to show that blacks are less intelligent than whites, but it has also backed nativist groups like ProjectUSA, run by former FAIR board member Craig Nelsen.)

Pioneer Fund At Southern Poverty Law Center

Started in 1937 by textile magnate Wickliffe Draper, the Pioneer Fund's original mandate was to pursue "race betterment" by promoting the genetic stock of those "deemed to be descended predominantly from white persons who settled in the original thirteen states prior to the adoption of the Constitution." Today, it still funds studies of race and intelligence, as well as eugenics, the "science" of breeding superior human beings that was discredited by various Nazi atrocities. The Pioneer Fund has supported many of the leading Anglo-American race scientists of the last several decades as well as anti-immigration groups such as the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

In Its Own Words
"[R]ace-realists view race as a natural phenomenon to observe, study, and explain. They believe that the human race is a valid biological concept… . The researchers associated with Pioneer tend to be race-realists."
— Pioneer Fund website on "race realism"

"[Pioneer Fund founder Wickliffe] Draper's interest, such as it was, in the Repatriation [of black Americans to Africa] Movement was quite separate from the Pioneer Fund. Further … [t]he movement had a long history of support, and from 1917–1923 was popular among a great many African Americans. … Harry Weyher (president of Pioneer from 1958 to 2002), who knew Draper well, noted that Draper's main interest was in the Black-led voluntary repatriation movements."
— Pioneer Fund website, defending the racial views of its founder

The Pioneer Fund's original endowment came from Wickliffe Draper, scion of old-stock Protestant gentry. Living in what one historian described as a "quasi-feudal manor house," Draper was raised in Hopedale, Mass., a company town built by his family. After losing a four-month union battle with the far-left International Workers of the World, Draper became a man obsessively seeking a way to restore the old order. Abandoned by the political mainstream after World War II, Draper turned more and more to those academics who were still dedicated to race science and eugenics — most prominently, in the early years, Henry Garrett. During the 1950s and 1960s, Garrett helped distribute Pioneer grants and was one of the founders of the International Association for the Advancement of Eugenics and Ethnology (IAAEE) in 1959. The IAAEE brought together academic defenders of segregation in the United States and apartheid in South Africa. The Pioneer Fund also supported a variety of institutions working to legitimize race "science," including the IAAEE and the journal Mankind Quarterly, which today is published by long-time eugenicist, anti-Semite and Pioneer grant recipient Roger Pearson.

Many of those involved with the fund early on, including its first president Harry H. Laughlin, had "contacts with many of the Nazi scientists whose work provided the conceptual template for Hitler's aspiration toward ‘racial hygiene' in Germany," according to an article in the Albany Law Review. In the 1960s, according to William Tucker's scholarly book, The Funding of Scientific Racism, many board members and recipients of Pioneer grants worked to block the civil rights movement.

Arthur Jensen, an educational psychologist focusing on race since 1966, got more than $1 million in Pioneer grants over three decades. In his famous 1969 attack on Head Start — the early-education program that aims to help poor children — Jensen wrote in the prestigious Harvard Education Review that the problem with black children was that they had an average IQ of only 85. No amount of social engineering could improve that performance, he claimed, adding that "eugenic foresight" was the only solution.

Roger Pearson, whose Institute for the Study of Man has been one of the top

For instance there has been controversy over Virginia declaring a month to Celebrate the Confederacy of the South which celebrating the pre-Civil War era and the war itself as proud moments of valor and persistence in their fight against the Union army for their right to keep slaves if a state so decided the Feds according to the Southerns had no jurisdiction over the matter. They also have been arguing for years that certain decisions made by the Supreme Court was an over-reach by the Supreme Court ie Brown v The Board of Education to Roe v wade .They accuse the Supreme court of reinterpreting the US Constitution which contravene the Constitution. So we should take seriously their talk of secession and their hostility to Obama and Washington which is evident in Arizona passing this draconian anti-immigrant law at this time.

Anyway to put things in a bit of context it is not surprising that the Arizona legislature would pass such a Draconian Anti-Immigrant Racist Apartheid style Law .We need to remember that in Arizona for a few years now there has been a struggle between the federal US government the Arizona Governor and legislature and the sickest Sheriff in America Phoenix Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his highly questionable tactics for rounding up suspected illegal-immigrants.

It is interesting that Tea Party GOP crowd are all in favor of this sort of bureaucratic & police intrusion into ones life but not a peep.

Opportunistic Racist Phoenix Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio illegal activities made legal by Arizona legislature and now Arpaio's Racist Style Law Enforcement is about to go Nation-Wide.

Is Obama paying attention . If other states copy this anti-immigrant law will there be a show down between the states and the US Government. Could it lead to violence or secession of Arizona or other states. Are they the conservatives that is hoping to ignite a civil war .

Sheriff Joe Arpaio honored by being accused of being a member of the Ku Klux Klan along with his buddy Lou Dobbs??? But as we see with the new racist anti-immigrant Law in Arizona we can not just laugh at the what seems over the top rhetoric because these racists are deadly serious and dangerous. They fear that White Americans are losing their grip on power and that America is not the traditional America they are so nostalgic for ala Glenn Beck & Fox News etc. The Good Old Days when America was a paradise???

For those interested check out some of my earlier posts on Sheriff Arpaio and the Immigration debate and the racist organizations who keep exaggerating the perils of illegal & legal immigration to America of non traditional immigration ie white European . Anti-immigration is almost a staple for Uberconservative Americans who fear any change in America's population make up.

Notable Quotes about Sheriff Joe Arpaio:

"Every time I watch Sheriff Joe unleash his ‘posse’ on another neighborhood with a high Hispanic population, arresting people with brown skin for the most stupid of offenses — honking their horn, having a tail light out, not signaling when they change lanes — I have to wonder how anyone could not see this as an assault on an entire race of people.”
— Columnist Jana Bommersbach (Phoenix New Times, June 2008)

“Over the past few weeks, Sheriff Arpaio’s actions have infringed on the civil rights of our residents. They have put our residents’ well-being, and the well-being of law enforcement officers, at risk.”
— A letter from Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon to the then-U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey calling for an investigation into whether Arpario had committed civil rights violations. (Phoenix New Times, June 2008)
