Sheriff Joe Raids Funland

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County (AZ) sent his deputies to raid the offices of Golfland Entertainment Centers that runs three amusement park around Phoenix. In the process the deputies took nine workers into custody for id-theft. That allowed them to seize personnel records to check whether Golfland employs workers in contravention of the Legal Arizona Workers Act. The company insists all its workers have been vetted through E-Verify. The deputies carried away records of 400 workers. (See Arizona Republic article.)
