President Donald Trump on Friday pardoned former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a controversial anti-immigration figure, who had been convicted of federal contempt of court.

The White House cited a lifetime of public service in announcing the pardon for Arpaio, who served for over two decades as a sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona prior losing his reelection bid last November. The defeat at the time was considered a significant victory for immigration rights advocates.

“Arpaio’s life and career, which began at the age of 18 when he enlisted in the military after the outbreak of the Korean War, exemplify selfless public service,” the White House said in a statement.

Trump had signaled that a pardon for Arpaio may be coming during a rally in Arizona on Tuesday, but the president opted not to avoid causing a

    And McCain and Ryan are complaining. 2018 will be a watershed moment for America. Time to kick these and other RINO’s out of office as well as get democrats like Waters, Pelosi, Schumer and others out as well. We need term limits and need them now.

    It was a victory for those who wish to flood this nation with even more illegals than we already have.

    Ahh, the Politico”: ” … Trump on Friday pardoned former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a controversial anti-immigration figure, who had been convicted of federal contempt of court … ” – no bias there. First of all, the good sheriff is “Anti-Illegal Entry” into the United States, not anti-legal immigration and was enforcing federal law(s) against those who’ve committed illegal entry. Secondly, please construct a cogent sentence (to be used in a written and/or over the air format) that orders law enforcement officers to Be On the LookOut (a.k.a. BOLO) for Illegal Aliens in a state that borders Mexico that will satisfy this judge.

    He who follows federal law (Arpaio) is sentenced to jail but those who ignore or believe they are above the law (hrc, wasserman, sharpton, blm, etc) are held in high regard. Something is not right.

  • Rodzzz says:

    Thank you Mr. President. Welcome home Sheriff Joe.

  • John Siemens says:

    YES! Once again President Trump does the right thing because it is the right thing to do. Despite Satan’s continued attacks on our society and the Constitution, God’s hand is continuing to heal our land.

    POOR RHINO, FLAKE(THE NAME FITS HIM WELL), and of course McCain the lefts best RHINO dumocrat. That is not to mention those on the left that are so full of hate, for this man doing his job in protecting and serving the people of these UNITED STATES.
    Side note as to putting detainees in tents. Apario statement was that since the military soldier lived in the same tents in all kinds of weather why can’t the detainees? The snowflake sissies of course wanted these people to have AC TV and all the comforts of home at tax payer expense. Hey idiot jail is not a social club

      McCain is a TRAITOR AND A LOSER. TRUMP WAS RIGHT WHEN HE CALLED HIM OUT THE FIRST TIME! LOOK UP MCCAIN’S UGLY PAST- HE’S NO HERO. I HOPE THE CANCER EATS HIS BRAIN FAST AND HE FACES A JUST AND ANGRY GOD FOR THE WAY HE’S SOLD THIS GOOD COUNTRY DOWN THE DRAIN. WE CAN STILL RECOVER BUT BECAUSE OF SLOBS LIKE THIS GOD AWFUL TRAITOR WE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!! GOOD DAMN JOHN MCCAIN TO HELL FOREVER!!

    “His deputies failed to investigate or conducted only the sketchiest of
    inquiries into hundreds of sex crimes between 2005 and 2007,
    investigations by Arizona law enforcement agencies have shown. Many of
    those cases involved molested children.”

    “Since he was elected sheriff in 1993, county taxpayers have shelled out
    more than $140 million to litigate – and ultimately settle – claims of
    brutality by the sheriff’s deputies. Lawsuits charge that the sheriff
    has cultivated a “culture of cruelty” motivated by Arpaio’s incessant
    trumpeting that he is America’s toughest lawman.”

    There is a list of other things the good sheriff has been involved in but you can see this man should never have been in charge of the dog pound let along a sheriff’s department. No he gets a get out of jail free card from our great president. I guess it’s professional courtesy.

      BOBNSTUFF opinions are like assholes. everyone has one and most of them stink. BUT THATS JUST MY OPINION

      1. bobnstuff says:

        So you think he is a great man after seeing his history. The death rate in his jail should tell you something. Instead of taking care of the people he was elected to protect he went off chasing headlines. Forget his abuse of power, look at the tax dollars wasted because of his mistakes.

            LOL! Yep, Ol’ “Bad Bob” is “Phallacious to a Phault, ain’t he?

          You have GOT to be a Democrat.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            No, I’m a republican who can remember when the party was great and could get things done. The Trump/ new conservatives aren’t true republicans and they seen to have a problem remembering last week. The good Sheriff bragged about his concentration camps.

          2. delbert chaudoin says:

            you go to jail to be punished. NOT to live the life of Riley at tax payers expense. I just helped build a new prison. 250 cable channels. semi private cells, each prisoner had their own key. No bars. That was PUNISHMENT??? I don’t think so. I think jail should be the old county work farms again. NOBODY wanted to go back. Oh, and each cell had its own thermostat.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            That sure doesn’t sound like anything around here or for that matter any prison I know of. I know that conditioning isn’t even in most jails. Just where are they building new prisons anyway, around here they are closing them, you can get a good deal on my local county jail right now. In our constitution there are rules about cruel and unusual punishment.

      2. Leslie Woodhull says:

        Bobnstuff is a paid troll. If you go through all of the 1776 site responses you’ll see him over and over again saying the same garbage.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          No it’s the same facts, you know those pesky little thing that Trump & Company hate.

  • Eastcoastcoonass says:

    Thanks President Trump, they had railroaded him and he deserves better than that. They wanted to walk over who ever was in their way, Joe was only doing his job. I just wish everyone else in the state and Federal goverment would do the same. If they would we wouldn’t be in the shape we are now.
