    ...Snow declared that Arpaio, his Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan, Lieutenant Joe Sousa, and former executive chief Brian Sands were guilty of civil contempt for the MCSO's defiance of the judge's orders arising from the civil-rights case Melendres v. Arpaio, in which Arpaio and his agency were found to have committed widespread racial profiling against Latinos in Maricopa County. In a 162-page "Findings of Fact," Snow ruled that Arpaio, Sheridan, and others at MCSO "willfully" and "intentionally" thumbed their noses at the court's dictates and were dishonest with the court and the monitor appointed to watch over the agency.

    States can impose their own stiff penalties on illegal immigrants and others who steal identities to get jobs, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, upholding Arizona’s law and dealing a setback to immigrant rights advocates. The decision is yet another victory for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and more broadly for Arizona, which has been a pioneer in trying to find ways to punish illegal immigrants, stepping into a void left by the Bush and Obama administrations. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said there are still some questions about how police and prosecutors use the identity theft laws,...

The national exposure leading to the March 22 primary marked a return to the political spotlight for Arpaio, an influential figure in Republican circles who has spent the...
