Racial Profiling on Trial in Arizona
An Arizona Sheriff is facing a class action suit that may one day make a difference. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is being accused of racism in law enforcement. Omar Jadwat, a Senior Staff Attorney with the ACLU Immigrants' Rights Project, tells Laura Flanders what's at stake and what this lawsuit can do for Arizona’s future when dealing with discrimination. A challenge this case will face is from a the federal law that permits officers to serve as immigration agents. Unfortunately, as Jadwat tells Flanders, "The federal government is not going to sue itself."
