Judgment in the case of the J. Arpaio, et al Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona:

In the full exercise of our responsibility as parents and communities most affected by discriminatory and racist policies that have violated the Spirit of Peace between us as Indigenous Mexican Peoples in the territories referenced in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (Mexico-USA 1848) and the authorities of the immigrant republic of the United States, namely the State of Arizona and the political subdivision Maricopa County;

Taking into account the fact that these policies have been inspired in the current era by the pogrom of J. Arpaio who used his position as Sheriff of Maricopa County to organize raids and hate campaigns against our peoples and our communities in the County of Maricopa specifically;

Having received direct testimony and precise evidence of Sheriff Arpaio's actions that have left emotional and psychological trauma upon our children in several public schools in Maricopa County because of the presence of Arpaio in these institutions of public education;

Reaffirming that as in decided in the case of Plyler v. Doe of the US Supreme Court, public education is a collective right that belongs to each and all who are residents of any school district and the question of citizenship or nationality has nothing to do with the responsibility of every parent to comply with the legal requirement to send their children to public school;

Taking into account the recent recommendation of US Federal Judge Murray Snow calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor to proceed with criminal charges against J. Arpaio;

This Order of Protection in Defense of Public Education of Our Children and Our Communities in the State of Arizona, proclaiming that the presence of J. Arpaio is NOT ACCEPTABLE, IT IS NOT PERMITTED, and WILL NOT BE ALLOWED in any public school where we have our children registered because it would be a criminal violation against the well being of our children that we take as a criminal act of child abuse.
