Nashua NH New Sheriff in Town to Address GOP

Protesters from several immigration and civil rights advocacy groups will greet Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the subject of a federal civil rights probe, when he comes to Nashua this week to speak at a Republican fundraiser.

The New Hampshire Alliance for Immigrants and Refugees and the American Friends Service Committee announced plans to demonstrate outside the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Sunday, where Arpaio, the sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona, will give the keynote speech at a fundraiser for the Nashua Republican City Committee.

Arnie Alpert, a civil rights activist and state program coordinator for the American Friends Service Committee, said the demonstration is meant to show opposition to Arpaio’s methods, as well as support for cultural diversity and the important role immigrants play in America.
