"While Congress has the responsibility to rewrite immigration law, the President has the responsibility to enforce existing laws in a just and fair manner.  Both congress and buy levitra low price the President have failed in their duty, and the civil and human rights crisis in Arizona is proof.  
 
The President's visit to Arizona is a return to cialis super active the scene of a perfect political crime committed by this administration.  The extreme prejudice of Jan Brewer and Sheriff Arpaio allow the cialis label President to denounce their positions while collaborating on cialis 200mg their policies of mass deportation.  President Obama needs to resolve the crisis he helped create. He can start with deactivating the Secure Communities deportation quota program so that Arizona's discriminatory policing cannot result in unjust deportation. He should provide relief to the victims of Sheriff Arpaio instead of continuing to deport them."

Salvador Reza of the Puente Movement responded to today's Department of Justice settlement for access to records in Sheriff Arpaio's office with the following statement.
"Nearly three years after the beginning of their investigation, the Department of Justice should be intervening in Maricopa county not just investigating. The people of Maricopa have been living with a likely criminal at the head of our law enforcement for years and it's time for relief. The County Sheriff's Office should be placed under receivership without delay. Anything less than immediate intervention in our human rights crisis makes President Obama and former Governor Napolitano accomplices in the reign of terror- and likely criminal behavior- of Sheriff Joe Arpaio."

The Department of Homeland Security which empowers Sheriff Arpaio through its ICE Access programs has recently come under fire for the expansion of Arpaio-style policies throughout the country through the buy viagra canada "Secure Communities" program. The agency has been accused of emulating the lack of cialis no prescription needed transparency and discriminatory practices under investigation in the office of Sheriff Arpaio.

As the call for Sheriff Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona to resign grows, Pablo Alvarado of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network issued the following statement:
 
"We are pleased attention has properly returned to Sheriff Arpaio and viagra professional 100mg we agree he should resign. However, the White House role in Maricopa's crisis deserves greater scrutiny and requires immediate action. Sheriff Arpaio's mishandling of crime cases is the direct result his out-of-control and discriminatory focus on immigration; focus he's able to implement through federal contracts
President Obama's contracts granting immigration authority to the Sheriff fueled his conversion into a Frankenstein and the President's refusal to pull the plug continues to cost levitra low enable Maricopa's monstrosity. 
The process to bring Arpaio to justice should be swift. The President and Secretary Napolitano have a moral obligation to ensure it begins with cutting the Sheriff off from federal immigration enforcement contracts and concluding the delayed Department of Justice investigation."

Today the buy levitra on line Department of Justice concluded its three year investigation into civil rights violations in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. In response to the detailed report, Pablo Alvarado of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network issued the following response:

 

“The Department of Justice report formally and forcefully describes a civil and human rights crisis in Maricopa County; one that has moved hundreds of thousands to demonstrate around the globe over the past several years.

 

 It is a ringing indictment of levitra medicine a Sheriff’s office that has 'treated all Latinos as if they were undocumented' and the federal immigration contracts that have made such prejudice possible. It is the most detailed chronicle of the failed end result of the federal programs that make monsters out of local law enforcement.

 

We have waited three years for federal intervention to www.nill.at restore justice in Maricopa County. Now that the Department of Justice has outlined the symptoms, it is time for the Department of Homeland security to http://www.formue.com/us-licensed-pharmacy-viagra terminate its immigration contracts with the Sheriff as a first step toward a cure.”

 

The Department of Justice report outlines years of biased policing that created “a chronic culture of disregard for basic legal and constitutional obligations (page 2).”

 

It goes on to detail that deputies used excessive force against Latinos and viagra in australia for sale built a “wall of distrust between MCSO officers and Maricopa County Latino residents (page 2).”

 

The report finds, “Since roughly 2007, in the course of try it establishing its immigration enforcement program, MCSO has implemented practices that treat Latinos as if they are all undocumented, regardless of whether a legitimate factual basis exists to suspect that a person is undocumented (page 6).”

 

“Sheriff Arpaio has promoted a culture of bias in his organization and clearly communicated to his officers that biased policing would not only be tolerated, but encouraged (page 9).”

In reaction to the Department of Homeland Security announcement that it is severing its 287(g) agreement with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and restricting his access to Secure Communities, Chris Newman, Legal Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, issued the following statement:

"We are pleased the Department of Justice report compelled the Department of Homeland Security to take steps today that should have been taken years ago.   As the DOJ report implies, DHS was an accomplice in the rights violations caused by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  DHS enabled Sheriff Arpaio to conduct his reign of terror, and expansion of the Maricopa Sheriff's approach led to SB 1070 and to the potential Arizonification of the country.  Today, the Department of Justice again acted to clean up the generic cialis from india mess caused by failed DHS policies that enlist local police into the business of enforcing unjust immigration laws.   It is time for DHS to stop contributing to the civil rights crisis described in the DOJ report and end the programs that made Arpaio's crimes possible."
