Hard Work Wins Pulitzer

Journalism on Police-State Sheriff Arpaio Results in Pulitzer

Since I moved from California to Arizona, I feel like I'm living in a police-state every time I stop at a border patrol checkpoint along the 8 & 10 freeways in Maricopa county. This is something I've spoken out about before, so it's awesome to see what UA alumni are capable of accomplishing.

"UA Alumni Share Pulitzer Prize"

From the UA News website:
"The Pulitzer committee said the East Valley Tribune deserved the award because of "adroit use of limited resources to reveal, in print and online, how a popular sheriff's focus on immigration enforcement endangered investigation of violent crime and other aspects of public safety," according to the Pulitzer Prize Web site."
