Trump May Pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio


In a move that comes as a surprise to absolutely nobody, (especially after the last week of open racism), president Donald Trump is seriously considering a pardon for the disgraced former sheriff of Maricopa county in Arizona Joe Arpaio. He was found guilty several weeks ago for contempt of court after he was ordered by US District Judge G. Murray to stop his profiling Latino drivers for traffic stops to check whether they were documented. He is set to be sentenced October 5th and could spend up to six months in prison. But not if his buddy Donald has anything to say about it. Trump, who campaigned on the promise of ending undocumented immigration, is a big supporter of Arpaio. He told the press that he is seriously considering pardoning Arpaio. He added,

“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… Is there anyone in local law enforcement who has done more to crack down on illegal immigration than Sheriff Joe? He has protected people from crime and saved lives. He doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.”

This comes at the same time as Trump has come under fire for not denouncing White supremacists, Klansmen, and friggin’ Nazis after a right-wing rally in Charlottesville, VA turned deadly over the weekend. It seems that the rest of America is coming around to what Latinos have known from day one of his campaign: Donald Trump is a total racist. After all, he launched his bid for president by saying that Mexican immigrants were all rapists and murderers. It is pretty clear at this point that by “Make America great again” he means for White people. For White, Christian, straight, Cisgender, males to be exact.
