A Mexican citizen has sued the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, claiming aggressive immigration enforcement has led to illegal racial-profiling. The lawsuit outlines several instances where Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his deputies are accused of overstepping their authority to conduct immigration raids.
Seems like sour grapes that someones family member got deported...

A Mexican citizen who is legally in the United States has filed the first lawsuit challenging Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's aggressive immigration-enforcement efforts


I read the article. A white guy and the legal Mexican were driving. They get pulled over for speeding (which was never addressed). Cop asks Mexican guy for papers to see if he was here legit. Mexican Guy produces papers but cop detains him for like 8 hours anyways. The Mexican guy is a retired teacher.

I saw Joe on the news the other day. He's not afraid of lawsuits. He says, "bring them on." He said he's been sued so may times he's lost count of just how many times it's happened.

AND, the individual from Mexico, on a visitors visa, is outside the territorial limitations established in the visa and seeking employment which is prohibited by the visa

Individuals, like Arpaio, get sued for something every day -

Not that big of deal.

And, isn't it strange that these "lawsuits" come as the pro-illegal groups are trying to stop implementation of the employer sanctions law?

Strange timing if you ask me

I think being in this country illegally should preclude anyone from being able to file law suits of any kind...Any gripes should result in an even speedier than usual deportation:-)

Arpaio is trying to "hold down the fort" in a difficult situation. He's a maverick. I wish there were someone like him here in L.A. Instead, we have a police chief only too willing to uphold Special Order 40, making it harder to identify and deport criminal aliens.

Excellent idea! Certainly a step in the right direction.

Had to chuckle here: not so terribly long ago, people of Italian heritage were 'racially' profiled from time to time.

Oh well.
