[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GvWT_V8u_w?rel=0&autoplay=1&autoplay=1&modestbranding=1&w=580&h=385] PHOENIX (AP) — The immigration rhetoric and crackdowns pushed by President Donald Trump have a familiar ring in Arizona, where former Sheriff Joe Arpaio once used similar tactics to become a national figure. Now, Arpaio is going on trial on a criminal charge stemming from those immigration enforcement actions. The eight-day trial that begins Monday in federal court in Phoenix will determine whether the 85-year-old retired lawman is guilty of misdemeanor contempt of court for disobeying a judge’s order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2017-06-26-US–Arizona%20Sheriff-Criminal%20Trial/id-9a94c515f2fc4152aefb5d76332d4e53…

The ban’s opponents used the moniker in hopes of conjuring flashbacks to the business boycotts, negative publicity and court decisions striking down major provisions of Arizona’s 2010 law. Proponents of the law, including Abbott, rejected the comparison and called it fear-mongering. As Texas begins what is likely to be a years-long legal saga over the sanctuary cities […]
