Sheriff Joe Raids Sporting Goods Company: Nabs 27 Illegals Using Stolen IDs

He’s known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff”. But Joe Arpaio continues to show he deserves the moniker of “America’s JOBS Sheriff”. Because every time Sheriff Joe conducts a raid, he frees up jobs for legal American workers.

And at a time when raids by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are almost unheard of – Barack Obama has slashed workplace enforcement by a staggering 70% since 2009 – Sheriff Joe and his department keep on working to crack down on illegal aliens in the workplace.

Today was no exception, as Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies raided Sportex Apparel in Tempe, AZ,  a custom-made sports clothing and accessories company – and arrested 27 illegal aliens, most of whom were caught using stolen or false identification.

In a seven-month long investigation, deputies learned that as many as 19 employees were using false or stolen IDs to work at Sportex, said Officer Christopher Hegstrom with MCSO. After Friday’s raid, 23 illegals were arrested for ID theft. Four others were taken into custody for outstanding criminal warrants, totaling 27 arrests.
