Description

On Monday, a court order blocking Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's use of workplace raids to enforce Arizona laws that make it a crime for illegal immigrants to use stolen identities to obtain work, was lifted by a federal appeals court. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said a lower court judge erred in imposing a preliminary injunction in January 2015 against Arpaio's and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's enforcement of Arizona's identity theft laws. Since 2008, Arpaio's workplace raids had led to the arrests of more than 700 undocumented workers for identity theft. Arpaio, who bills himself as "America's toughest sheriff," turned the raids into his signature initiative. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/4czebfle01E/us-arizona-arpaio-idUSKCN0XT1DX http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
