Tempe, Arizona - Controversial Maricopa County sheriff Joe Arpaio -who bills himself as the "toughest sheriff in America"- sent out to the streets a new chain gang made up entirely of undocumented immigrants who have been convicted of drunken driving. According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO), the new chain gang attempts to send a strong message about the hazards of driving under the influence (DUI). Inmates who are part of the chain gang are immigrants living illegally in the United States. They were previously arrested for driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. All are serving sentences for DUI offenses committed while driving in Maricopa County. Photo by Eduardo Barraza © 2011
