    The self-proclaimed “America’s toughest sheriff” was re-elected to a sixth term yesterday in Arizona, defeating a retired police sergeant and overcoming opposition from Hispanic groups.

    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, 80, a Republican, was defiant as he addressed supporters last night, criticizing the media for portraying the race as close and sending a message to Hispanics and President Barack Obama that he won’t back down from his controversial immigration enforcement. He said he would run again in four years.

    “I will continue to enforce all the laws, including illegal immigration,” he said. “Nothing changes.”

    I don't like him, but it's obvious that the people of Maricopa County like him.

    Yeah, we can't have any of that now can we.

    Now that, is amusing. Arizona is one of few states I have stayed overnight in that I have not broken a law in.

    I am so glad that I have supported his campaign. I dont live in Arizona but I would love to see this attitude catch on in other states too.
