Joe Arpaio has been sheriff of Maricopa County for two decades and is once again up for re-election; U.S. and Mexico address basic infrastructure needs in the border region with NADBANK; a study on voter ID laws reveals how voting rule changes may deter millions of Hispanic voters; and a new exhibit at the McNay Museum displays contemporary prints by Latino artists.
