The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is developing system designed to keep illegal immigrants from visiting county jail inmates.

Sheriff’s deputies would do background checks on every one who comes for a jail visit.


When someone comes to the jail to visit an inmate, they’re required to show ID. Arpaio says the background check will be completed before their next jail visit.

Those who can’t prove citizenship would be denied a second visit and could be arrested.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio says one man decides who gets to visit an incarcerated loved one. “I run the jail. I decide who goes in there.”
