President Trump Is Considering Pardoning Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Arizona’s infamous sheriff, Joe Arpaio, was indicted for criminal contempt of the law for disregarding a judge’s order to stop arbitrary traffic stops to determine someone’s immigration status. For years, Arpaio’s antics made nationwide news, with him dressing inmates in all-pink uniforms and feeding them slop. But this time he really did step outside of the law. But, because President Trump is also a hardline opponent of illegal immigration, he has told Fox News that he is thinking of pardoning Arpaio. And he says it might happen within the week.
