Arizona's firebrand 'Sheriff Joe' is running for Senate


But asked about the risks many could face going back to dangerous countries, places some of these DACA recipients have never been or where they don't speak the language, Arpaio pushed back. A guy re-elected numerous times as the sheriff of Maricopa County. "He is a much more prominent and visible person, he's been around so long", said David Berman, a senior research fellow at Arizona State University's Morrison Institute of Public Policy. "Joe Arpaio was convicted". Gallego, not surprisingly, graduated from Harvard University, is a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and sports a treasonous Freedom Index rating of just 16 out of 100. "You deport them back to the country they came from".

Birthers like Arpaio-- and Trump for that matter-- stoked the flames of racist vitriol aimed at Obama. "I'm going to tell you again that that document is a forgery".

But it sure has been costly. Or is it the probability of a Democratic wave that has him hoping to avoid an embarrassing defeat that has caused Mandel to postpone?

This was enforced by Arpaio, who required his deputies to determine the immigration status of anyone breaking the law.

"And we have the evidence", the sheriff said.

Chris Cuomo confronted Arpaio tonight about his pardon and his profiling of Latinos, but he also brought up the birtherism.

Translation: Enforcing the law under SB 1070 would be inconvenient for federal immigration authorities and so must be blocked.

On the one hand, he will draw unwanted attention for the GOP nationally.

Arpaio said he had not told President Donald Trump about his campaign.

Mr Arpaio's announcement is likely to widen the field for Arizona's Senate race further. His "life experience" is what most annoys liberals.

Arpaio started his law enforcement career in 1954 as a police officer in Washington. Their attack insinuated that Obama was not truly American and, if proven, his presidency would be considered illegitimate. "A lot of them go after the president". What's wrong with that? He was spared a possible jail sentence over the summer when Trump pardoned him for disobeying a judge. Arpaio repeatedly has noted that he arrested more than 30,000 illegals between the years 2005 and 2009. With Trumpian zeal, he ranted to me about the confederacy of haters who were hellbent on taking him down-something he believes he has in common with the president.

Arpaio, 85, announced on Tuesday that he would enter the GOP primary and compete with Ward for the seat now held by Sen.

McSally has courted Trump's support in recent months while still presenting herself as middle-of-the-road.

In Ohio, Republican State Treasurer Josh Mandel just announced that he is discontinuing his challenge to sitting Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown, claiming family illness is taking priority over his run.

There's no need to mince words here.
