Call on Homeland Sec. to Suspend Sheriff Arpaio's 287g Agreement
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, disregards human rights.
We can't stand by and let Arpaio's reign of terror continue. We've made some progress. At a news conference on March 11th, we learned that House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers and three subcommittee chairs will be holding Congressional hearings on Sheriff Arpaio’s abuses. And, on March 10th, the US Department of Justice announced a major new investigation into Arpaio’s discriminatory practices!
There’s one more person who needs to weigh-in: Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who oversees Arpaio’s 287g agreement that allows him to enforce Federal immigration laws. That's why we are asking Sec. Napolitano to isuspend Sheriff Arpaio's 287g agreement.
Please sign on to show your solidarity against terror, abuse and racism and to bring this Sheriff to justice!
