This chapter explores a place made famous in the immigration field by an energetic county sheriff who has cracked down on undocumented immigrants. However much this served his political career, this chapter argues, his actions also respond to the sentiments of a native majority made uneasy by the rapid growth of immigrant communities, a significant presence of unauthorized immigrants, and their overwhelmingly Mexican national origin. These conditions have enabled Sheriff Joe Arpaio, among others, to inflame the situation. At the same time, the chapter shows how the larger political response has been enabled by a long-standing metropolitan fragmentation and lack of regional business leadership.
