From the Republican National Convention I'm -- Maricopa County sheriff Joseph -- a -- from Arizona.
Joseph what did you think of Mitt Romney -- his victory speech that you -- motivate.
Not just Republicans but Democrats all Americans.
That's the type speech -- -- and -- -- will make him and he -- president.
Obviously the economy and immigration have been big talking points here at the orange seats.
On -- about the Republican platform where you pleased with the guest worker program and and the -- a nodding yes against a guest worker program.
As long as it's done legally.
On the other hand maybe we should try to fill the positions.
We have about 10% on -- -- We should look at our exit of people that work here there are here illegally.
And fills a position.
And then look at the guest worker or you know when you talk to Hispanic community they points in his platform -- -- -- tuning.
Kansas secretaries -- -- go back and sheriff Joseph Arpaio that are the problem with the immigration zone.
And the reason why Hispanics aren't voting for Republicans what's your thought of that Percival was the problem.
I don't make the laws on this Europe -- enforce the laws and I'm enforcing state laws and federal laws they enforce all laws I don't think that's the problem.
Now -- the poster -- From Washington -- from the president on down.
But is it because -- doing right job.
What motivates you to continue to go out there -- -- -- talk about the recent -- you know you ought to -- now is -- something that -- you know.
You sort take pride in this has nothing -- I've been talked and -- -- famous or infamous.
A fifteen years ago.
-- put up the tents and chain -- pink -- does -- that he knows just another subject and no law that weren't forcing but for some reason.
I'm getting shot not literally so far.
By all the activists the White House everybody else.
Take immediate or just because I'm -- -- -- -- -- What about the Justin Boren and you know Justice Department don't have to -- town where where do you pretty cute kids and pretty that you are now in in terms of -- What the -- -- I have nothing -- Well American that the federal government takeover money off as an elected serve the one monitors that tell me what to do -- -- known.
Number two -- a hundred days in the he'll Obama administration.
That they went after.
Now what took him three and a half years.
To take the action they did is it because there's an all election coming up like kind -- -- -- little politics.
Do you do you think you still politics and that do you think that people can say that.
Republicans are maybe not throwing you out there and did during this week because -- don't want to talk about immigration because they think the Hispanic vote.
Is very critical means you think that the Republicans are playing politics in that way.
Wouldn't thrown me out and all of it and and where -- all these delegates come optimists say thank you.
So evidently on doing something right so didn't throw me out I'm here.
And I and all these delegates likely they like -- not because I'm tall dark and handsome.
But they like me because I'm in force in the illegal immigration laws so I think that should send a message.
That I and doing what the people elected me to do.
Do you ever do you ever think about town you know.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Why why should I do in my job I talked to the media's.
I don't run a CIA.
In high you'd like talk to you sometimes gets into trouble.
But now on I'm doing I'm doing what I didn't do it.
-- -- Toning down -- And I had no idea to -- what to a speech which part of rim Romney's BC you review most impressed I'd like to use speech -- -- the family.
I think that means a lot.
He's very ethical.
Nice guy he's I was his campaign guy for years ago.
So alive that's when I first met him and now I'm learning more about him this time around and I like what I -- Not do you do anything about Marco Rubio the -- of these guys got -- presented yesterday.
And I listened to movement -- motivate me like.
The governor round.
If not do you think the Republicans will win in Florida some of these Hispanic battleground states like Nevada next and if you do -- I think they've got a good chase.
A chance I don't think -- -- this senator will now he's well known here senator rubio.
I think he will know -- don't know and he got a good governor here.
And I think you you can -- and don't forget just like Arizona.
Many people come here from these calls every critic on the Florida -- -- To areas policy got a mixture of people from all over.
Commented these -- -- -- -- that means a lot of these arizonans like Florida but Craig Romney coming on beacon management -- Well I think he speaks pretty good Spanish I spent four years in Mexico City speaks better.
-- that's a zero.
And at the end of the day today when Florida you think Republicans are took him -- all right I get a sense here they support needs.
I've raised seven and a half million dollars to -- for sure.
And a lot of money comes from floor.
Evidently he sent me money they must like what I'm doing it to you like what I'm doing that should translate.
Mitt Romney not to Obama because he's -- retailers and must -- you know that the reports -- talking about discrimination and the fact that you have really come out and looked for.
Hispanics purposely towards racial profiling.
I mean can you can you talk to me what's what's your response and then -- -- today.
-- first of all we don't racial profile period I'd say that I've continuously said that.
We don't go around street cars and picking people off because it looked like -- from another country it has to be a crime.
A violation of the crimes also I'm an equal opportunity guy I lock everybody up so it doesn't matter what color ethnic background.
You know the -- -- -- because he.
It's the person gets traffic ticket using that -- a -- and is that that that -- qualifies as a criminal violation enough tonight to go to the next Korea says colonel we have people -- -- or anybody.
If they happen -- We -- we had authority.
To be federal agents -- still they took that authority away from me.
It in the jails I had the authority on the streets it took that away from me it doesn't matter and still enforces state -- it doesn't matter at all.
-- cents a in the it is Supreme Court decision -- life support and sent it.
You have -- Romney mentioned immigration.
You know I don't write his speeches.
He's is his people he knows what he's going to say it doesn't bother me about the -- victories it is not going away.
People know about immigration that he.
Wanted to talk about the economy.
And his family.
You know I think that's what he wanted to concentrate.
I was questioned this when it really -- -- last question this time.
What got you into these has a strong supporter of immigration laws and really getting them to what what's wrong that actually it was wrong.
We never had any laws state laws.
Like we have now.
I'm enforcing state laws with their criminal violations all important you came -- and get out on bond.
They hassles laws they're felonies.
And I decided to enforce it now -- all that he died today.
Because there's a lot of controversy over illegal immigration I speak out.
Has beaten Hispanics -- would you tell them -- who are about to go to the voting Booth and say you know I'm not voting for Republicans because of Joseph Arpaio don't don't blame me.
You know -- -- -- I did live for years in Mexico I dealt with the Mexican president to your attorney general.
I had great relations with the Mexican people in Mexico City in the -- our country.
And I'm just doing my job I'm not a races.
I'm not gonna get into my personal family.
But let's just say -- them.
Different races and ethnic background -- bring it.
And that's that's the way they wanna call me all the names wouldn't do it.
I know in my heart what I -- -- -- in the law took an oath of office and I don't back down and I will continue.
To do what I've been doing.
If they don't like it I highly recommend that they go to congress get their congressmen.
To change the laws or make new laws.
Highly recommend that don't go after the insurer of this just enforcing our laws are just some -- -- analogue.
We'll change the laws doesn't bother me at all.
