In Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been terrorizing communities for years, engaging in police brutality, forced family separation, racial profiling, slow emergency response times, unjustified arrests, inmate abuses and more. His latest action, forcing more than 200 undocumented immigrants to march through the streets in chains to a tent city surrounded by an electric fence, is just his latest ourrage against human rights. We can't stand by and let these abuses continue. House Judiciary Committee Chair John Conyers has asked that Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano open investigations into Arpaio's actions.
