Disgraced ex-sheriff Joe Arpaio shares anti-immigration stance: 'Deport them'

Joe Arpaio

He was a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump during the campaign, and was pardoned by the President in August. Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio claims it is fake.

Arpaio complicates the lessons the Republicans may have learned in Alabama about choosing a fringe nominee over a more "moderate" opponent, too.

"No doubt about it, we have the evidence", he told host Chris Cuomo.

"My idea was, when you come across these people, deport them", Arpaio said.

When queried about Trump rescinding his doubt that Obama was born in the United States, Arpaio clarified that the president never gave a final statement about the authenticity of the birth certificate.

Arpaio, who announced Tuesday that he's running for a seat in the Arizona U.S. Senate, has pushed birtherism in the past, much like his good friend - President Donald Trump.

It happened because the sheriff's Cold Case Posse, when he was in office, responded to requests from constituents to investigate, and the only formal law-enforcement review of Obama's document concluded the document released by Obama's White House as his official birth certificate nearly without doubt was a forgery. 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. "We have the evidence". He was one of the loudest voices in the birther movement, which suggests that the country's first black president was not born in the USA, and sent a deputy to Hawaii in 2012 to investigate.

However, she removed Bannon's name from her list of endorsements after Trump split with Bannon over comments in a newly published book critical of the president.

Federal Agencies Revoke First Naturalized Citizenship, of Indian American Man
The U.S. immigration agency plans to refer about 1,600 additional cases under Operation Janus for possible denaturalization. In 2017, the Justice Department filed 25 civil denaturalization cases, according to a department spokesman.

In the early 1990s, Arpaio directed construction of a tent city for immigration detainees, a measure he said was intended both to alleviate overcrowding and to underscore his aggressive enforcement measures.

A high-resolution version of Obama's birth certificate can be downloaded from the White House website.

Arpaio's announcement is likely to have the biggest impact on Kelli Ward, another Tea Party GOP extremist planning to run for the party nomination. Jeff Flake will retire from at the end of the year.

What really goes on with the federal government? I know this isn't going to be easy.

Arpaio's candidacy all but guarantees that immigration will again be elevated in an election year, something that has not benefited Republicans in the past.

"As time went on, I saw what was happening in D.C. - nothing is changing with the Senate", he said.

While the Arizona Republicans are about as far-right and socially conservative as they come - with an added mix of anti-immigrant xenophobia and straight-out racism in some cases - the general Arizona population is far less extreme.
