MCSO stop leads to feds taking custody of two suspected illegals

July 3rd 2012   ·   17 Comments

PHOENIX (AP) – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have responded to Maricopa County Sheriff deputies’ request to take custody of two suspected illegal immigrants in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Monday evening’s encounter was the first between his deputies and federal officers since the recent Supreme Court decision to uphold part of Arizona’s controversial immigration law.

The Supreme Court upheld the provision in the law that allows police to try to determine the immigration status of people they stop or arrest if they have a reasonable suspicion that they’re in the country illegally.

Arpaio says two suspected illegal immigrants were arrested by the sheriff’s Human Smuggling Unit during a traffic stop north of Phoenix in which deputies developed probable cause in determining that they were in the country illegally.
