|American Patrol Report -- July 8
On August 12, 2009, KTAR TV in Phoenix ran a major story that involved American Border Patrol. At the request of Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, The Southern Poverty Law Center had sent a representative to Phoenix to urge Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to distance himself from groups such as American Border Patrol which the SPLC listed as a hate group. "These are not people who anybody who is in public life should be spending time with," SPLC's Heidi Beirich told KTAR TV.
