Border Fence: Steven Seagal Joins Immigration Wars - The Daily Beast

Border Fence: Steven Seagal Joins Immigration Wars - The Daily Beast

America’s Toughest Sheriff swore in his new “illegal immigration posse” this week. And Latino activists, already rubbed raw by Arizona’s controversial new law criminalizing unauthorized migrants, are once again crying foul—arguing the posse could instill a menacing Minutemen mentality, as one advocate put it, and encourage posse members to go “hunting Mexicans.”

The group of mostly middle-aged or older white men dressed in brown uniforms with gold badges will assist Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s deputies in such duties as “transporting illegal immigrants arrested for potential immigration violations,” “crowd control during demonstrations against the sheriff’s immigration policies” and “searching for load vehicles and drop houses.”
