Interview with mother who was forced to give birth in chains while in custody of Arpaio's guard (Spanish)
*Please contact elected officials to protest Arpaio's continued actions*
In spite of losing his 287g program, the Sheriff is launching a two day long county-wide crime suppression/illegal immigration operation will begin tonight at 5PM.
200 volunteer posse, reserves and deputies will participate. Posse helicopters will "visually assist ground crews."
Friends in ARIZONA and around the country: Please contact your members of congress, Secretary Napolitano and President Obama and let them know how strongly you object to immigration enforcement through neighborhood purges. Arpaio's actions are being replicated across the country. We must have a moratorium on local law enforcement's sweeps and purges. No more terrorizing communities. No more tearing apart families and leaving frightened children to fend for themselves. It must end now.
