It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

FYI, Arpaio is a ROMAN CATHOLIC! Seriously - if he really cared, he would have put his life on the line.

John 10:12  But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
Joh 10:13  The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

Sheriff to cede immigration-enforcement foothold

PHOENIX (AP) — An Arizona sheriff known for crackdowns on people living in the country illegally is giving up his last major foothold in immigration enforcement efforts that won him popularity among voters but gradually were reined in by Washington and the courts.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office revealed late Wednesday that it was agreeing to disband a controversial squad that has raided businesses to arrest more than 700 immigrants who were charged with using fake or stolen IDs to get jobs.

"He has proved that when he gets involved in immigration enforcement, he tramples on the U.S. Constitution, at great expense to taxpayers and public safety," said Cecillia Wang, an American Civil Liberties Union lawyer who won a racial profiling case against Arpaio's office.

The revelation that Arpaio was voluntarily closing his criminal employment squad comes after the sheriff's office was stripped of special federal immigration powers, found to have racially profiled Latinos in traffic stops, and investigated by federal authorities for alleged civil rights violations. The courts also have thrown out many of Arizona's immigration laws.

Arpaio still retains limited power to confront illegal immigration, such as a civil law that imposes business-license punishments on employers who knowingly hire immigrants in the country illegally.

The sheriff's office didn't respond to a request Thursday to interview Arpaio. But it issued a statement saying the squad will be disbanded early next year, and that grant money used in the enforcement of the ID theft laws will be returned to the state.

The sheriff's road to immigration enforcement began in 2005 as voter frustrations grew over the state's status as the then-busiest in immigrant smuggling and state lawmakers started responding to their complaints about Arizona's porous border with Mexico.

Like other local police bosses, Arpaio previously left immigration enforcement to federal authorities.

He explained his decision to enter immigration enforcement as addressing a public safety concern. And he eventually set up squads that focused on immigrant smuggling and businesses that hired immigrants.

"We don't go after the addicts on the street," Arpaio said in a 2005 interview about his newly formed smuggling squad, likening his immigration crackdown with his approach to investigating drug cases. "We go after the peddlers. Same philosophy."

His supporters have said the sheriff was the only local police boss to do something about illegal immigration in the face of inadequate federal enforcement.

Critics say Arpaio picked on powerless immigrants because it was popular with voters. They said Arpaio focused too much on rank-and-file immigrants and gave too little scrutiny to smugglers and employers who hired immigrants in the country illegally.

Arpaio's immigration efforts reached their peak around 2010 when he launched immigration patrols known as "sweeps."

During those stings, deputies flooded part of a city — in some cases, heavily Latino areas — over several days to seek out traffic violators and other offenders.

Immigrants who were in the country illegally accounted for 57 percent of the 1,500 people arrested in the 20 sweeps conducted by his office since January 2008, according to figures provided by Arpaio's office.

But a backlash was brewing in Washington and in the courts.

In late 2009, Washington stripped some of his deputies of their power to make federal immigration arrests.

A federal judge last year ruled Arpaio's office systematically racially profiled Latinos in traffic and special immigration patrols. The sheriff vigorously denies the court's conclusions.

Arpaio's now-disbanded immigrant smuggling squad recently came under scrutiny from the judge in the profiling case after allegations of misconduct surfaced this year, including whether a squad member was shaking down people who were in the country illegally.

The sheriff himself has been criticized by the profiling case's judge for not embracing the changes needed to remedy constitutional problems with some of his agency's traffic stops. The judge is moving closer to launching a contempt-of-court case against Arpaio for repeatedly disregarding orders in the profiling case.

Even though his involvement in immigration enforcement has gradually dwindled over the years, Arpaio still speaks up on the subject.

Last month, he filed a lawsuit that seeks to dismantle President Barack Obama's executive order that lifts the threat of deportation from millions of immigrants living illegally in the United States.
