Trump should stand with Sheriff Joe in Arizona

Oct. 12, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President today issued the following statement urging Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to stand with Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona:

“We live in an upside down world, where the U.S. Government is threatening to jail Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for following and enforcing our nation’s immigration laws. In the meantime, the same Justice Department has refused to prosecute Hillary Clinton for breaking our nation’s security laws. If I were advising Donald Trump, I’d encourage him to go to Phoenix, Arizona, and stand by Sheriff Arpaio, noting that the same Clinton press corps that has attacked him for saying that Hillary should be in prison at the debate are now silent as Obama attempts to jail Sheriff Arpaio for enforcing the law.

“We have truly gone through the looking glass, where enforcing immigration law is now a crime and breaking that law gets you a free pass into our country.”
