Does being involved in a lawsuit against Sheriff Arpaio, a favorite among anti-illegal immigrant protesters, mean you’ll be arrested? What about these protester’s right to free speech?
ACLU Lawyer Arrested At Day Labor Protest
November 3, 2007
PHOENIX — The legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona was arrested Saturday during a demonstration at a Phoenix store that has been a site of controversy over illegal immigrant day laborers.
Capt. Paul Chagolla said Daniel Pochoda was arrested as activists demonstrated in front of Pruitt’s Furniture and that Pochoda is accused of misdemeanor trespassing.
“I’m not their favorite guy,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. “They’ve sued me. I think this guy (Pochoda) is involved in a lawsuit against me. You think that’s going to bother me?”
