Arpaio and the Siege of the Wells Fargo Bank Building
Thursday, September 18, 2008 | 7 years ago
The anti-Arpaio protests outside the Wells Fargo bank building in downtown Phoenix continue into their third week, with people from all over the country joining the fray. Organized largely by local activist Sal Reza's group PUENTE, demonstrators are demanding that Sheriff Joe be evicted from his suite of offices in the posh pad because of his immigration sweeps. Currently, the Sheriff's two floors in the building cost taxpayers well over $600K per year. The protests take place 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., weekdays, at 100 W. Washington Street, Phoenix.
