Bloggings On Immigration Law And Policy

THE SHERIFF JOE SHOW

America's Voice has noted that Phoenix Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been given a reality television show on Fox television. Paco Fabien, AV's communications director explains why we should care:

“This reality series won’t capture the reality of the Latino population living in Maricopa County. Sheriff Arpaio’s dangerous crusade has left the Latino community scared and his county less safe by prioritizing racial profiling over executing felony warrants.   FOX television, famous for its controversial shows, may not realize how controversial a figure Arpaio is to the Latino community in the United States and should expect a backlash. He is a modern day Bull Connor and should not be given a spotlight on national television unless it is to highlight how his approach to law enforcement is un-American and ineffective.”

A lot of younger people won't know who Bull Connor is, but the comparison is right on target. Television networks pay a lot of attention to complaints and you should make your opinions known if you are outraged by this.
