Sheriff Arpaio to campaign with Perry

Hudson, New Hampshire (CNN) Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona will campaign with Rick Perry in New Hampshire on Tuesday, the Texas governor's campaign told CNN on Saturday.

The man famous for his tough stance on illegal immigration has not endorsed a presidential candidate, though he has been courted by the likes of Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, businessman Herman Cain, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Perry.

Arpaio is a hard-liner on illegal immigration in a state known for its tough 2010 law on the issue. Among other provisions of the law, it would require that local police, during the enforcement of other laws, check the immigration status of anyone they suspected of being undocumented.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit said the measure overstepped Arizona's authority, and the state is seeking a U.S. Supreme Court ruling to settle the issue.

Arpaio's endorsement could be helpful to Perry, who has been the subject of criticism from conservatives for some of his actions on illegal immigration.

Joe Arpaio is the face of racist hate in America. Well this is surely to sink Perry's campaign for the Latino vote. Keep it up pendejo Perry! :mad: :puke: :mad:

1. Well, I guess Perry needs to undo the "damage"
he did in conservatives' minds about justifying his in-state tuition during a past debate. I can't think of a bigger hater than Arpaio to do just that. :puke:

Updated: Perry Gets Nod From Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio

MANCHESTER, N.H. Gov. Rick Perry, hoping to win back voters who think he's weak on illegal immigration, is promising to detain and deport every illegal border crosser if elected president.

Perry made the remarks right after picking up the endorsement of Joe Arpaio, the tough-talking sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. Texas Democrats attacked Perry for campaigning with Arpaio, calling him "one of the most xenophobic figures in the country."

But Perry isn't worried about Democrats right now. The governor has come under fire from conservatives for his moderate views on immigration, and his campaign is hoping that Arpaio's support will help erase their doubts.

Appearing with Arpaio at Joey's Diner in Amherst, the Texas governor took aim at a "horrific policy" that he says allows nonviolent immigrants to be released.

"My policy will be to detain and to deport every illegal alien that we apprehend. That is how we stop that issue, Perry said. "And well do it with expedited hearings, so that millions of illegal immigrants are not released into the general population until a hearing dates set several weeks or months later, as we see today."

:puke: A pox on both your ugly mugs and houses!

Oops! Perry Campaigns with Sheriff Arpaio, Modern Day Bull Connor

On Tuesday, Rick Perry will campaign in New Hampshire with Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has built a national reputation for his anti-immigrant views.

Sheriff Arpaio is a modern-day Bull Connor, minus the fire hoses and german shepherds. He is a disgrace and a national embarrassment. Not familiar with Bull Connor? The video ( ) has not lost its ability to shock.

Memo to Perry (and Romney, for that matter): A hard-line, anti-immigrant position is not especially popular in New Hampshire, even among likely Republican primary voters. In 2008, John McCain won the primary with a Gingrich-like position on immigration reform. A June, 2011 UNH / Boston Globe survey asked New Hampshire primary voters, Would you support or oppose a program giving illegal immigrants now living in the United States the right to live here legally if they pay a fine and meet other requirements? 42% of likely Republican primary voters supported a path to legal status, as did 54% of undeclared voters and 72% of likely Democratic primary voters. See page 58:

In the new UNH / WMUR poll, Gov. Perry had a net -34 favorable/unfavorable rating among likely Republican primary voters, the worst rating of any of the Republican candidates. ( )

Perry - stupid as he ever was... same as he ever was. :spank:
