Obama administration harasses sheriff for enforcing immigration laws

Supported predictably by ACORN and other leftist groups, several Democratic congressmen have prompted the Justice Department to investigate the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Arizona. The sheriff's office is alleged to have violated the civil rights of illegal aliens.

Or was the real problem that the law enforcement activities of the sheriff's office were producing such amazing results? An August 2008 press release of the sheriff's office reports some of these results and statistics:

Nearly 2300 arrests;
16,000 inmates found to be illegal aliens who have been or will be deported;
20% of Maricopa County Jail inmates are illegal aliens, and 70% of them (2000 individuals) were arrested for felonies.
