Meraz, 36, is a convicted ********* who served six months in Arpaio's jail in 2006. Her crime:
Ripping off immigrants while she worked for the Catholic Social Services.

Nieto Jr., 41, has a troubling rap sheet that includes convictions for aggravated harassment, unlawful imprisonment and 2nd-degree burglary. He recently served three years in state prison and was released in February.

The ACLU lawsuit, naturally, never mentions the siblings' background. Neither does a July article about them in the Arizona Republic.

But someone at the Republic should have noticed that Meraz was mentioned in an archived May 2006 Republic article by veteran police reporter William Hermann, entitled, "Turning to crime: Number of Arizona women behind bars escalating."

A Google search for Meraz brings up this abstract of the article on www.prisontalk.com, (broken link) but you have to pay an archive fee if you want to read the whole thing. I'll save you the trouble: Here's the part that quotes Meraz:

Meraz, 33, said many women don't want to turn to crime; they have to.
"We're more on our own, nobody taking care of us or being a partner, and when you're left with a child or three, and the man has just taken off, you do what you have to do to take care of them," she said.

Oh, cry me a river. There are millions of women who are single parents who don't resort to crime. These women are simply criminals and should be dealt with accordingly.

Mind numbing isn't it? The thought that there are millions of them here just like her, breeding what will become the next generation of Americans by "default" is enough to make the baby Jesus weep.

My mother is a single parent and did not have to turn to crime or even govt welfare to raise me. Raising up your child with no help aint easy but it can be done.

The victim mentality these illegals have is horrifying.

Indeed, I am one of them. You simply knuckle down, take on a second job, tighten the belts, and wait for the day that your children reach an age where you can return to school and better your chances for a a better paying job in the future.

Note it was the anti Arpaio and de facto pro amnesty rag the New Times that broached the above topic.
