Sheriff Arpaio continues to target immigrant workers in Arizona, since september, over 200 workers, day laborers, corn vendors, journalists have been arrested, many deported in AZ. Roger Sensing, owner of Pruitt's furniture store, is hiring off duty ice trained sheriff deputies to patrol the neighborhood of 35th st. and thomas, racially profiling day laborers, and intimidating the community.

We can not continue to stand around, while our community is under attack. Join us in pressuring Roger Sensing, owner of Pruitt's Furniture, for aligning himself with a racist; Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He claims to be proud of being associated with the KKK.

Let's make an example out of Pruitt's and send a clear message that we will not tolerate the ongoing targeted abuse of immigrant workers!
