    Phoenix mayor: Arpaio raids are 'made-for-TV stunts'

    Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon lashed out at Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Friday, describing the sheriff's recent raids in northeast Phoenix as "made-for-TV stunts" and his recent actions on immigration "not acceptable."

    "Go after criminals - not a teenager driving with a broken tail light," Gordon said, referring to the sheriff's recent deployment of 200 deputies and armed volunteer posse members to a command post near Cave Creek and Bell roads.

    Arpaio set up shop there a few days after mounting a similar effort near 36th Street and Thomas Road.

    In both cases, Arpaio said he acted after receiving complaints from local merchants about day laborers in the area disrupting their businesses.

    Gordon gave his remarks at a luncheon to honor civil-rights leader Cesar Chavez.

    He characterized the sheriff's raids as naked acts of racial profiling. He described one of the people who helped to circulate petitions among those businesses as "a self-described neo-Nazi."

    Arpaio said the requests for help came from businesses who were frustrated about the lack of action from Phoenix police. The source of the petition shouldn't matter, he said.

    "Not only is he insulting the sheriff and my organization, he's insulting all these business people who signed it," Arpaio said. "He's just repeating what all his pro-immigrant friends are saying."

    Luncheon Honoring Cesar Chavez
    Remarks by Mayor Phil Gordon
    March 28, 2008

    Thank you, Veronica. Thank you, Governor Napolitano, for being here and for sharing your eloquent words with us.

    As I look around this room, I see some of my very best friends. And many of my long-time friends. And I know that on December 3 of last year, when I asked our Police Department to review its internal policy -- some of you were frustrated. But you stayed with me – and I thank you. I am still one of the most fortunate guys in town to have you as my friends.

    I’m always honored to be at this wonderful event that celebrates an American hero. In some ways, it’s hard to believe that – all these years after Cesar Chavez stood up for the farm workers with such courage, conviction and eloquence – we are still struggling against very real issues of race and discrimination and injustice in this country. And sadly, in our own city.

    I had prepared some remarks that were in keeping with your broad theme of education. But yesterday, something happened that moved me to give a different speech today. Though it’s still about education.

    Last night, the Sheriff communicated with the law enforcement professionals of our community like he communicates with most everyone – by issuing a press release. He announced that his 200 volunteer posse members would be “migrating north

    It's time for Phil Gordon to hit the road, if you are not representing Americans you should not hold any kind of an office we don't need or want people like you!
