The following exerpt concerning Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu was written by David Leopold, past president of AILA, and was originally posted at Huffington Post:
Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu fancies himself a “Leader on Border Security” and an immigration hardliner. In 2010, when the Obama administration mounted a legal challenge to Arizona’s harsh immigration law, the Pinal County sheriff stopped just short of calling the president a traitor charging, “[o]ur own government has become our enemy and is taking us to court at a time when we need help.”
Yet it turns out that the Babeu himself was willing to help one immigrant, Jose Orozco, the sheriff’s Mexican boyfriend. That is at least until last week, when Orozco claimed that after their recent break-up Babeu threatened him with deportation. And, as if that were not bad enough, press reports suggest that the sheriff, who is a Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in Arizona’s 4th Congressional district, apparently knew about his lover’s tenuous immigration status and may have illegally employed Orozco without authorization.
