Pinal officers trained in immigration law


Five Pinal County Sheriff's officers have completed training that will allow them to enforce federal immigration law, an official said Monday.

The four-week training course is administered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to a news release from the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.

Detective Mark Guemes, deputies Albert Phelps and Zach Mauzy, and detention officers Donald Allen and Edgar Hernandez took part in the training, which focuses on immigration law, civil rights and intercultural relations, the news release said.

"We now have some tools to begin addressing criminal undocumented (entrants)," said Pinal County Sheriff Chris Vasquez in the news release.

The deputies who graduated will have immigration-enforcement authority that will allow them to assist in multiagency efforts targeting violence associated with human smuggling, the release said.

The detention officers will use their authority to identify "foreign-born criminals" in Arizona prisons and jails.
