Then there are rights that the constitution grants to all people, regardless of whether they are citizens or here legally or anything. For example, the 5th amendment reads "No person shall ... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law".
Then there are things that the government is simply forbidden from doing without any consideration of who it is doing it to. For example, the 1st amendment reads that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press".
But, putting that aside, what Arpaio is accused of doing, amongst other things, is using racial profiling. Racial profiling means deciding to target an entire race rather than just those who are here illegally. He is violating the constitutional rights of Hispanic US citizens every single day.
imo, certain politicians and groups use the term "racial" profiling to bring about their point. Seldom do these politicians address the illegal alien problem and the issues that it presents. Nor do they give credit when LE busts a drop house and arrest the coyotes who have abused women, children and men who were brought into the US illegally by the coyote. Nor do they give recognition when LE rescues illegal aliens from the desert and provide medical treatment.
So I guess for some the solution is for MCSO to completel ignore ID theft, human smuggling, or rescue mission when it comes to illegal aliens. It is just a federal problem.
imo you have overblown what happens in Maricopa country.
we will agree to disagree.
