Meet the Latinos who love Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio

by Lalo Alcaraz on March 2, 2012 in El Now

On Sunday, newsman Jorge Ramos confronted Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Univision’s Al Punto and told Joe he was the face of racism to U.S. Latinos.

The much-maligned Maricopa County cop wouldn’t have any of that. “How do you know they don’t like me?” he asked. “They love me!”

It’s really true, because we found a lot of Latino love for Sheriff Joe Arpaio everywhere we asked.

Jose Palomares, Jose's Party Store

We sell a lot of Sheriff Joe piñatas, seriously, a buttload. We really do like him.

Clara Silva, immigrant

I love Sheriff Joe. He shackled me to my bed when I gave birth. It really brought me closer to my baby.

Flavio Barrales, small businessman

When I see Sheriff Joe’s face, it reminds me to stick to my diet and not eat pork. I’ve lost 5 pounds. Thank you Sheriff Joe

Martha Ramirez, college student

I am going into criminal justice, and Sheriff Joe inspired me to pursue law. I hope to be a lawyer and fight corrupt racist piece of shit cops like that fat douchebag. Love him

Randy Nuñez, social media consultant

Sheriff Joe inspires me to be a better person, not a flaming asshole like he is.

Rosamaria Benavides, mom

I show my kids pictures of Sheriff Joe and I tell them he’s El Cucuy, and they behave like angels. Love that Sheriff Joe

Juan Corona, serial killer

Sheriff Joe killed his mother. That’s kind of cool. Love him.

Una cosa me da risa, Joe Arpaio sin camisa,
ya se van los Breweristas, por que, vienen los Alcaristas!
La cucaracha, la cucaracha,
ya no pueden caminar,
porque no tienen
porque le faltan
Medical Marijuana que fumar.

Mitt Romney’s Mexican father, hmmmmm…….Are the simple minded “BIRTHERS”, going to ask Romney for his birth certificate? We all know this was never about a birth certificate, if it was then these same people would be asking Romney for his. It’s about small minded people who hate African Americans and do not have the brains to review a President’s policy so they make something up. So sad, so sad.
