Joe Arpaio Arrests Six Year Old Girl

In Joe Arpaio’s Arizona, a six-year-old child falls under his jurisdiction as a criminal, instead of a minor in need of care from Child Protective Services:

Maricopa County Sheriff Office deputies arrested a 6-year-old suspected illegal immigrant Friday, the day President Barack Obama softened the country’s deportation policy toward young illegal immigrants.

The girl was with 15 other people believed to be in the country illegally who were traveling to the Midwest and northeast United States, said Chris Hegstrom, spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office…

The whereabouts of the girl’s parents or other caretakers is unknown. All of the people traveling with her claimed to know nothing about the girl.

"Where was she going? What are they going to do with her? We’re trying to get to the bottom of this right now," Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.

All of the other suspected illegal immigrants, who claimed to be from Mexico, were booked into jail.

"We enforce the human-smuggling laws here," Arpaio said. "Every chance I can get to take action on my own without turning them over to ICE, I do. Especially with the new policy the president has."

I fear any action that Arpaio takes “on his own” — keep in mind, he’s the target of a Department of Justice lawsuit over abuses towards inmates and residents of Arizona, particularly those with brown skin. And it sounds like he arrested this six-year-old girl out of spite over Obama’s new policy towards young undocumented immigrants.

For Sheriff Joe:

Well, Arizona, all your crimes are now solved, thanks to Sheriff Joe.
