Abstract On June 18, 2014, alongside our members who have been arrested in workplace raids, we filed a lawsuit against Arpaio, Montgomery, and MCSO challenging two state laws that turn immigrants into felons simply for working to provide for their families. In January 2015, a federal district court judge in Phoenix issued a preliminary injunction barring the Maricopa County Sheriff and County Attorney from enforcing the laws while the case is pending, and we continue to pursue a permanent halt to the workplace raids and expungement of criminal records for raids victims who face discrimination and barriers from unjust felony convictions.
