Washington, DC Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is not the only one under fire from the Department of Justice for cracking down on illegal immigrants. Yesterday, the DOJ issued another scathing report accusing the East Haven, CT Police Department of discrimination against Latinos for allegedly violating their civil rights.
In a 23-page letter detailing the results of a two-year investigation sent to the East Haven mayor, Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez wrote, We find that EHPD engages in discriminatory policing against Latinos, including but not limited to targeting Latinos for discriminatory traffic enforcement, treating Latino drivers more harshly than non-Latino drivers after a traffic stop, and intentionally and woefully failing to design and implement internal systems of control that would identify, track, and prevent such misconduct.
Taking the same line from his report condemning Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Perez also described the discrimination as deeply rooted in the Departments culture, citing statistical analysis showing how Latinos were intentionally targeted for traffic stops since nearly 20% of all traffic stops were Latino drivers. Perez however, does not attempt to address any other possible factors for the high number of traffic stops, but simply comes to the conclusion that it must be discrimination considering Latinos account for only 10.3% of East Havens population.

meanwhile in New Haven the mayor is going to allow illegals to vote
East Haven citizens should band together and tell ALL illegals to get the F out of town. Illegals should not be welcomed in the USA.
“Illegals should not be welcomed in the USA.”
Here in northern NJ the lack of any kind of immigration enforcement has led Americans to abandon whole towns to illegals; you probably saw some of those places in the news as they laid off their government employees.
A black market economy fueled by untaxed dollars doesn’t pay cops, teachers, firemen, etc.; single family homes with five families in them don’t exactly balance a school budget.
This is simply federally sponsored rabble rousing to incite class warfare in preparation for Novembers election. Plain as the nose on my face.
It is outrageous to stand by and not be able to do a thing while this admin gets away with this obvious vote stealing. IMHO!
That’s because East Haven is predominently Italian in heritage and too ritzy for those who aren’t affluent.
Obama needs to change that, too.
There are 50 (57 for those in the Oval Orifice) of us and only one of them. It’s time for the states to kick the feds’ @$$. The DOJ is out of control and no longer doing the job that it was supposed to do.
