Sheriff Joe Arpaio Offers To Apologize And Pay For Violating Court Order In Racial Pr

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Offers To Apologize And Pay For Violating Court Order In Racial Profiling Case

Quote:
An Arizona sheriff known for immigration crackdowns and a defiant political style has offered to publicly apologize and fork out money from his own pocket for his acknowledged violation of a court order in a racial-profiling case that barred his immigration patrols.

The concession by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is intended to short-circuit contempt-of-court hearings next month that were ordered by the judge in the profiling case and could reveal embarrassing details about the sheriff's office.

Arpaio's offer to end the civil case with the apology and payouts marks a rare public expression of contrition for the normally unapologetic lawman, whose immigration enforcement efforts helped win him popularity among voters but were eventually whittled down by Washington and the courts.

Arpaio has offered to use his money to make a donation to a Hispanic group and to seek money from county government to compensate people harmed by his violation of the 2011 order that barred his officers from detaining people based solely on the suspicion that they were in the country illegally.

Dennis Wilenchik, an attorney for a retired Arpaio aide also targeted in contempt hearings, believes some sheriff's officials may invoke 5th Amendment protections against self-incrimination and refuse to testify for fear that whatever they say might later be used against them in any future cases.

"They are trying to avoid in any way, shape or form that hearing," Wilenchik said, adding that his client, Brian Sands, is willing to testify during the hearings.
I say, having the hearing, find him guilty, and throw him in one of those outside tent jails.

Fuck him. Let him stand trail or plead guilty to the charges in front of a judge and pay the penality the judge decides on, not him.

Perhaps it does....

This is planting the seeds for eventual vote-harvesting by the Left to simply stay in power. This way, they can continue to "redistribute"...to themselves.

It's not the liberals who own the corporations that bring them here. Koch brothers are not liberals, but their ALEC group wants to bring in "guest workers" (Bush Buzz word for illegals) to do construction jobs again.

IF you knew what was going on, you'd know who'd to blame for the problem. As it is, you let your religious cult pull you by the ring in your nose to hate "liberals" so the right wing legislatures get to make more illegals work for slave wages in this nation.

Construction wage bill will hurt state

Quote:
According to a study released last year by the Midwest Economic Policy Institute, a repeal of Indiana's CCW law would lead to job cuts in the construction industry, costing our state approximately $21 million in tax revenue per year, in addition to the average $65.8 million in lost federal tax payments. In an era of tight budgets for our local schools, parks, libraries and other benefits to our community, we need to maintain good-paying jobs that help us pay for these vital services.

The average pay for an Indiana construction worker is $23.22, not including benefits and the value of their training in apprenticeship programs at no cost to the taxpayer, which is over $42 million per year! This rigorous training produces a highly skilled workforce that increases economic productivity. The same study found that workers added $140,320 in value to each project, making them more than twice as productive to workers in states without a CCW law. Rep. Torr's bill does nothing to make up for this loss in productivity or training; instead he blindly invoked the mantra of "free-market" ideology in his public testimony as the solution to all future problems his bill would cause.

Getting rid of our CCW law would invite employing undertrained workers, creating dangerous job sites and ultimately costing taxpayers more money. States that have repealed their CCW — such as Missouri, Kentucky, Florida and Utah — saw a 15 percent increase job-related injuries.

he New England Regional Council of Carpenters have been fighting the mis-classification of workers for many years now. Immigrant workers are being classified as independent contractors allowing their employer to avoid paying taxes, having to provide workman’s compensation insurance, and paying drastically reduced wages.

Julio Beldi Image is a screen shot from the video below. Credit to NERCC

Take Julio Beldi who has been working in construction for many years. Now Julio is a member of the the Carpenters Union local #33, but prior to that he worked for many unscrupulous employers throughout New England. In the video below, Julio told tells the story of how he was working on the new VA hospital in Rhode Island. He would go weeks and even months without being paid. He said he was paid $18 an hour, even though he should have been paid close to the $50 per hour Prevailing Wage for the job. National Drywall violated countless labor laws, and federal mandates on this VA hospital alone.

The problem goes much deeper. When “sub-contractors” are violate the law by illegally hiring workers under the table or off the books it hurts everyone. It hurts the worker who is not being paid fairly. It puts the worker’s safety at risk as the fail to meet OSHA requirements and provide workman’s compensation insurance. It hurts the community because it depresses the wages of all workers, and cheats the community from the taxes they are owed.
So you want to whine about illegal workers in this nation, whine to the republican teabaggers and the corporations who buy the republican teabaggers to write the laws that bring them here.

firstly, I'm not in any religious cult and secondly I'm no longer a republican. I do know we have a liberal president who refuses to enforce immigration laws and just allowed millions the right to stay here when they should have been deported. but you want to whine that it's the republicans fault. it's both parties fault imo but Obama is the head honcho and he just made it worse.
