As frustrations mounted a decade ago over illegal immigration, Arpaio created an elite squad to crack down on smugglers and, in the process, became known across the country as a tough-talking lawman willing to step in where the federal government wouldn’t. But the now-disbanded squad has turned into an ever-worsening legal liability, the thorniest one that he has faced in his 22 years as Maricopa County sheriff. A judge will hold hearings beginning Tuesday, April 21, 2015 over whether to hold the sheriff and the squad's leader in contempt of court for letting Arpaio's immigration patrols continue for about 18 months after a court found that his office racially profiled Latinos and ordered that they be stopped.(AP Photo/Matt York, File) Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s immigration unit tarnished by misconduct allegations

The LeDosquets plant bulbs at their Vernal home. Their daughter Julia, now 17 months old, was born with an uncommon birth defect called tracheomalacia.
