Charges stemmed from Obama witch hunt

WASHINGTON, D.C. – With Attorney General Jeff Sessions conducting a review of all Obama administration “consent decrees,” former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio should be at the top of the list.

Sessions should immediately withdraw the criminal contempt-of-court charges against Arpaio that were leveled by a politically corrupt Obama administration Department of Justice.

Now at 84-years-old, after a distinguished decades-long law enforcement career, Arpaio faces criminal charges that could see him convicted to six-months in jail if found guilty.

These charges stem from a 2007 traffic stop that resulted in the arrest of Ortega Melendres, a Mexican tourist who was a passenger in an automobile stopped in Cave Creek, Maricopa County.

Melendres accused the Maricopa County sheriff’s officers of “fundamentally stopping brown-skinned people with the pretext of looking for criminals.”

Tom Perez, a LaRaza hard-left attorney from Maryland who had risen to head the Civil Rights Division in the Obama Justice Department and now heads the Democratic National Committee, decided to target Arpaio, largely because of Arpaio’s determination to strictly enforce existing immigration laws.

In Perez’s radical views, Arpaio’s law enforcement practices in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) amounted to a “systematic policy” that formalized law enforcement rules and procedures in a manner intentionally discriminatory to the rights of Hispanics.

Arpaio’s case provides abundant evidence that the tactic of the Obama administration Department of Justice to bring litigation to obtain “consent decrees” over state and local police departments amounted to nothing more than political prosecutions.

The goal of the DOJ Civil Rights Division under Perez elevated the rights of minorities, the “rights” of illegal immigrants, and the “rights” of criminals — even the assumed “rights” of illegal aliens with criminal records – by imposing on state and local law enforcement agencies a hard-left agenda that perceives effective police enforcement of laws as inherently discriminatory.
