Training local law enforcement

Following up on my post from this morning about training local law enforcement about immigration, here is a story from Arizona. Turns out a Sheriff's Office has been questioning crime victims and witnesses about their immigration status. This is, of course, exactly the problem noted by opponents of the 287(g) program, since it sends a very clear signal that if you are the victim of a crime, you need to keep your mouth shut. It also sends a very clear signal to potential criminals that they can target Latinos and have a better chance at getting away with it.
