Valeria Fernandez on New American Media reports on the unholy alliance between Maricopa County
Sheriff Joe Arapio and Mizzou law prof Kris Kobach. Arpaio retained Kobach to oversee a two-hour training offered to Maricopa County Sheriffs to arrest undocumented immigrants. The U.S. government recently rescinded the 287(g) agreeemnt it had with the Maricopa County Sherriffs after claims of racial profilining, abuses of prisoners, civil rights violations generally, political retaliation, etc.
