Joe Arpaio

I want to make this place so unpleasant that they won’t even think about doing something that could bring them back.

But we can’t let this continue.

I’m the elected sheriff, … I serve the people. I don’t serve the mayor. I don’t serve some politicians.

    米司法省は10日、メキシコとの国境に接する西部アリゾナ州の保安官が中南米系(ヒスパニック)の住民に人種差別的な扱いを繰り返しているとして、憲法に違反する人権侵害をやめるよう求める訴訟を同州の連邦地裁に起こした。

     米連邦政府機関が保安官を提訴するのは異例。訴えられたのは州都フェニックスを含むマリコパ郡のジョー・アルパイオ保安官で「全米で最もタフ(たくましい)な保安官」を自称。中南米系の不法移民への反感を背景に一部の保守派から根強い人気がある一方、人権団体などから批判を浴びている。

     訴えによると、同保安官の事務所は中南米系住民による犯罪を取り締まるチームを結成。証拠に基づかない不当逮捕や、拘置所でスペイン語を使ったことを理由にした容疑者の処罰などを繰り返している。
