Episode Summary

The People's Sheriff
This week on Exposé: Maricopa County, Arizona -- including Phoenix and beyond, it is one of the largest counties in America. It's known for its good living, warm desert climate, and media-savvy sheriff. For over 16 years, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been known for his tough approach to crime. But it is only recently that the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office has made a huge effort to combat illegal immigration, partnering with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) under a law that grants local sheriff's deputies authority to enforce federal immigration law. And when reporters Ryan Gabrielson and Paul Giblin of the East Valley Tribune took a closer look at the immigration efforts of the Sheriff's Office, they discovered that other services were suffering as a result.moreless
