Speaking to KTVK-TV, “Somebody ought to ask the president where is he,” the former Sheriff said.
The sheriff was recently found guilty of intentionally ignoring a court order to cease arresting immigrants based solely on the suspicion that they were in the country illegally according to NBC News. The former Sheriff faces 6-months in jail for the misdemeanor conviction but attorneys who have followed the case doubt that he will serve any time at all.
The former Sheriff had been overwhelmingly popular with Maricopa community.
Speaking about the President, Mr. Arpaio said, “I was with him since Day One, and I am with him until the end. I don’t ask him for anything. He can throw me into the swamp and cover me up in garbage, and I’d still support him.”
