Sad Day In America Trump Pardons Anti-Immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Trump Pardons Anti-Immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio
(FreshAsFrankie) I can’t believe how these damn republican are just doing what they choose with no repercutions. Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio was excused from having to do prison time for criminal contempt on Friday, August 25. Arpaio received a Presidential pardon from Donald Trump that critics say he never consulted with the Department of Justice over.

Arpaio was found guilty of having disobeyed the 2011 orders of a judge who demanded that he discontinue the outlawed racial profiling tactics his office was using to bust down undocumented migrants. Many had suspected that Trump would bless Arpaio, who was a staunch supporter of his candidacy. Local politicians, including Phoenix’s mayor, had expressed worry that the President would cause a firestorm by choosing to pull the trigger during his rally in the city this past week. Trump didn’t go through with the move that very day, but he did hint that a pardon was coming down the pike.

A statement issued by the White House cited the 85-year-old Arpaio’s age and 50 years of service in law enforcement, and heralded his “life’s work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration.” Arpaio would respond with a couple of tweet’s thanking the President, one of which read, “Thank you @realdonaldtrump for seeing my conviction for what it is: a political witch hunt by holdovers in the Obama justice department!”
