    Two-thirds of the 93 people arrested during the first day of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's latest crime and immigration sweep were believed to be illegal immigrants. The two-day sweep is being run in an area of west Phoenix with a high number of "drop houses" where smugglers hide immigrants who have been sneaked into the country. It's the 15th sweep that Arpaio has conducted since early 2008. During the sweeps, deputies flood an area of a city _ in some cases heavily Latino areas _ to seek out traffic violators and arrest other alleged lawbreakers. Critics say deputies racially...

    As federal authorities continue their crackdown on immigrant smugglers operating in Phoenix, smugglers are scattering drop houses in more rural communities to avoid detection, immigrations officials said. Two immigrant drop houses discovered in Sierra Vista this month are just another example of that. "The level of enforcement in urban areas has forced smuggling organizations to move to other areas to accomplish their ends," said Russell Ahr, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Phoenix. Drop houses are hiding places for smugglers bringing in illegal immigrants, serving as a stopover point for immigrants headed elsewhere. Ahr said there have...
