ABDUCTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST SALVADOR REZA

BY MARICOPA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTIES TODAY

Phoenix, Arizona – In response to the current Human Rights crisis in Maricopa County Arizona, and the targeting of Human Rights activist Salvador Reza by the Maricopa County Sheriff Department, the following statement is given:

“I do not dignify this as an arrest. This was an abduction. It is an act of state sanctioned persecution and discriminatory profiling.  And just as AZ SB 1070 is not a law, the taking into custody of Salvador Reza today represents the policies of persecution that are the inevitable result of the complicity of Obama administration via the 287g agreements with local law enforcement such as Maricopa County Sheriff J. Arpaio.

This was an abduction not only of Salvador Reza, but of the protections for Human Rights for all in the State of Arizona.”
