Victory for Immigrants' Rights Activists: Sheriff Joe Arpaio Loses Re-election in Arizona

2016-11-09T12:09:03-08:00

In election news from Arizona, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio lost his bid for a seventh term. Arpaio faces the possibility of jail time, after federal prosecutors announced they are charging him with criminal contempt of court over his refusal to end unconstitutional immigration patrols in Arizona. Arpaio was a major supporter of Donald Trump. His policies have included racial profiling and detaining immigrants in a scorching outdoor tent city jail, which Arpaio once referred to as his own "concentration camp." We go to Phoenix, where we are joined by Marisa Franco, director of Mijente, which helped organize the Wall Off Trump protest at the RNC last July.
