Episode Summary

AIRED:
Maricopa County Jail in Phoenix, Arizona is a jail made famous by its Tent City and outspoken sheriff, Joe Arpaio. Now it's at the center of a new storm. There's a cordoned off area of Tent City called O Yard. It's a place where the future is not so clear. A lot of the public calls this "The Immigration Yard" because 80 percent of the inmates there are undocumented. Maricopa has always been a controversial jail, but these O Yard inmates, who will most likely be deported, have thrust it into its most heated conflict yet. And while our producers were there, 5,000 protesters organized a march on the jail to express their anger. Arpaio's critics accuse him of directing his deputies to sweep neighborhoods for illegal immigrants who might not otherwise be breaking any laws. But Arpaio denies that he racially profiles or that his deputies arrest people without cause.moreless
