Phoenix illegal immigrant raids face court challenge

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An immigration rights group is suing Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office over dozens of raids on businesses in Phoenix.

It claims hundreds of illegal immigrants have been arrested, but only a small number of businesses have been charged with hiring them.

Arpaio's office has carried out more than 80 raids over the past several years. He's vowing to continue them, saying they fight identity theft among people obtaining phony documentation to work in Arizona.
