Dear Friend,

In Maricopa County, Arizona, a mother with two small children in the car was pulled over for a minor traffic violation. Armed deputies in ski masks detained her for over an hour while her children watched in horror, not knowing what was happening to their mother or what would happen to them.

The whole event was caught on tape – and the video is truly heart wrenching. Even worse, the Sheriff in this small town has a long track record of racial profiling and civil rights violations in the name of immigration enforcement.

No matter where you stand on the immigration issue, mothers and children should never be treated this way.

Click here to watch the video on the MomsRising.org website, then sign a petition asking the Department of Justice to investigate this Sheriff:

The sad truth is that "Sheriff Joe" was re-elected BECAUSE of things like this not in spite of. Phoenix is not a small town either, it is the FIFTH largest in the US. This is the guy when accused of being a member of the KKK, said he wore the accusation as a badge of honor. He is in charge of the County Jail system where inmates are fed only twice a day with a maximum of 2,000 Calories. Many are housed in "Tent City" that is little more than canvas covering in the extremes of weather and headcounts are performed every two hours. The county has lost so many lawsuits that it no longer can get liability insurance and must pay fro its own coffers. All in all, a perfect fit for the home of John McCain.

As long as the winners of the last election let those who lost convince them that, no....that win was only in their imaginations, things like this will continue. I thought I wouldn't see, for awhile anyway, the Repubs still having as much control over the Senate as they seemed to be having today. It's amazing....did the Dems win or lose in November? :?
