Holder v. Arpaio: Sheriff’s Attorneys Meet with Justice Dept. Today
August 24th, 2010 4:10 pm ET
U.S. Justice Department attorneys are meeting today with Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, as they look into allegations of civil rights violations in his department’s treatment of illegal aliens.
Justice Department investigators say that they gave the sheriff’s lawyers over a week to turn over documents and cooperate with their inquiry.
Attorney General Eric Holder is continuing his more than one year investigation into whether Arpaio’s policies and law enforcement sweeps discriminate against illegal aliens.
