Anti-immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio sued by Justice Department
Time: 1:08 PM
The Justice Department on Thursday filed a lawsuit against Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Arizona for refusing to fully cooperate with the department's investigation of alleged national origin discrimination in the course of immigration enforcement.
DOJ has been looking into whether Arpaio is in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act since March 2009. The controversial Arpaio passed a deadline last month to provide DOJ with the documents they requested, and his lawyer met with DOJ last week.
The Justice Department said at the time it was "hopeful" that Arpaio would cooperate following the meeting, but in a statement said on Thursday that it had "[exhausted] all cooperative measures" to gain access to the requested documents and facilities.
DOJ is unaware of any other police department of sheriff's office that has refused to cooperate with an investigation in the past 30 years, making Maricopa County "an extreme outlier," said the department.
From TPM, here's the PDF of the complaint against Sheriff Joe.

Murphy secured federal funding for homeless veterans
Time: 4:30 PM
Via Congressman Murphy's press release:
"These new housing resources will change lives. No one should have to go without a roof over their heads, but veterans in particular deserve a place to call home given all they have done to serve our country. I'm thrilled to see Danbury get its first dedicated housing vouchers and I'm looking forward to seeing how these resources will impact our homeless veterans," said Murphy.
Housing vouchers for veterans are allocated under a joint initiative between the VA and HUD called the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program (HUD-VASH). Murphy was joined by Vet House and HUD-VASH officials.
Vet House I is part of the "Housing for Heroes" Program in Danbury, and provides temporary housing for veterans in need. Vet House II is currently under construction, and Murphy secured $190,000 for that project.
From Monday, here's video footage of Murphy's presser.
