Sheriff is now claiming the Justice Department has pulled a sneak attack on 12/15/2011 not giving the Sheriff's Department a chance to respond, he goes on to state "we are going to fight this."
The Justice Department has called Sheriff Joes practices egregious practices it's ever seen. Sheriff Joe has called the accusations ridiculious, saying he is going to fight back and they are going to show the politics involved in this whole thing.
When asked if there was any chance he would step down due to all the heat on his department?
"Are you serious, no way in a million years. We haven't done anyting wrong, I've been the sheriff almost 20 years. I am not going to be driven out of office for following the law, and being 25% of our activity in the whole country been very successful, I am not going to back down because of politics, because the President wants to get the hispanic vote ! ! !"
