    US: Thousands of Latino immigrants in Arizona have protested against a notorious county sheriff accused by a federal grand jury of “abusing” immigration laws to discriminate against Mexican migrant workers.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio sparked the court case and protests at the weekend by ordering heavy-handed “crime sweeps” – sending squads of officers into immigrant areas to clamp down on supposed traffic violations, but then using the evidence to deport workers suspected of having entered the country illegally.
