While I've always believed that jailbirds give up some of their rights by becoming wards of the state, I also believe that they have a right not to be raped or otherwise targeted with violence just because they are available and in jail. Any compassionate person would offer the same right to illegal aliens.
This was my first thought. There are a lot of illegals who aren’t criminals, other than being here illegally, and it is courtesy to separate them from hardcore criminals. ACORN is a criminal organization that thinks everyone is corrupt like the members of ACORN, and they can’t understand that some people appreciate not having to be in the company of criminals. In their limited world view, they equate segregation with bad white people like Georgia’s ex governor Jimmy Carter. Arpaio should call his act of decency something else.
