Suit Against Sheriff Arpaio in Court This Week
"The suit contends that Arpaio, who styles himself "America's toughest sheriff," and his officers violate the constitutional rights of both Hispanic citizens and legal immigrants alike in their zeal to crack down on people they believe to be illegal immigrants in the Phoenix valley," says a Reuters report about a suit against the Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff.
"Arpaio, who has become the public face of local efforts to enforce tough immigration laws, denies the allegations and is to fight them in the U.S. District Court in Phoenix. Lisa Allen, a spokeswoman for Arpaio's office, said that neither it nor its attorneys would comment 'until after the case is decided.'"
