Thousands protest sheriff's immigration efforts

PHOENIX – Thousands of immigrant rights advocates marched in front of a county jail in Phoenix Saturday in a protest that was aimed at Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's immigration efforts and was marked by a clash between a small group of protesters and police officers.

Organizers say the protest was meant to show officials in Washington that Arpaio shouldn't handle immigration enforcement, and that Congress and the Obama administration need to come up with a way for immigrant workers to come to the country legally.

I really like the style of this Sheriff Arpaio. We need more people like this in America. I understand that people want to come to America for a better life, but do it the right way, do it the legal way. As far as the protesters go, that's a complete waste of time. Protesting with signs and what not never accomplishes anything. And here's some food for thought'... These people who protest things day and night, where do they work? I know my boss wouldn't allow me time off from the job to go stand somewhere for days and night's holding up a sign nobody reads anyway. When you see protesters holding up signs, think of it this way..(this is what our populations unemployed are doing). Put down the signs and get jobs!

Kudo's to Sheriff Arpaio. Keep up the good work.
