An Arizona sheriff is calling on Mexican officials to apologize for what he says is a “threatening”advertisement. The ad shows a man wearing camouflage looking through binoculars with the words: “In Sonora we are looking for people from Arizona.”

The advertisement, which ran Friday in the Arizona Republic, caught the eye of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who posted the VisitMexico.com/GoToSonora.com spot on his Twitter page and asked citizens to call MexicanTourism Board offices for clarification.

“Are they threatening us? Do they not want us to go to Mexico for tourism? It’s mindboggling,” Arpaio told FoxNews.com on Monday. “I don’t think it was in good taste.”

Arpaio said he found the advertisement “inappropriate” and called on Mexican officials to apologize.

“I want everybody to call the Tourism Board,” Arpaio said. “To me, it’s a threatening type of advertisement.”
