Sheriff Joe has been convicted via a Democratic Party witch hunt in his own town. This is what Democrats do to people who dare to uphold our immigration laws. Lawlessness is the MO of the left … May God help us all …
Conservative Tribune – Maricopa County’s “Sheriff Joe” Arpaio might have been hit with hard news two weeks ago, but the former Arizona lawman might be getting a life-changing phone call from President Donald Trump soon.
The president has confirmed he is looking at officially pardoning the controversial sheriff, according to a Fox News report.
“I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Trump stated on Sunday. “He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him.”
Trump also indicated that he will likely make a decision on the Arpaio pardon in the next few days.
The 85-year-old retired officer was found guilty on July 31 of misdemeanour contempt of court from his time in office when he continued to back enforcement efforts against illegal immigrants in Maricopa County, Arizona.
He could face up to six months in jail for that charge, although he has not yet been sentenced.
Liberals piled on Arpaio for enforcing state and federal laws near the border with Mexico. The sheriff became a hero to many conservatives as he gained a national profile for fighting illegal immigration during the Obama era.
It looks like Trump is one of his many fans.
“Is there anyone in local law enforcement who has done more to crack down on illegal immigration than Sheriff Joe?” Trump said, according to Fox. “He has protected people from crimes and saved lives. He doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.”
Word of the president’s possible pardon quickly reached the tough but ageing former cop.
“I am happy he understands the case,” Arpaio said to Fox News. “I would accept the pardon because I am 100 percent not guilty.”
