Last week it was announced that President Trump had pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona, who had been arrested and charged and sentenced in federal court for the crime of upholding America’s immigration laws! He is 85 and has dedicated his life to law enforcement and has been outstanding at his job — a household name with many Americans. If there is a majority who don’t like the immigration law, the law should be changed, but we shouldn’t stop enforcing the law of the land simply because we disagree with it. That is anarchy. We are a country governed by the Rule of Law.
Sheriff Joe is the one who had the lowest recidivisms rate for prisoners in Arizona! Why? Because he actually made prison life less than comfortable, and the prisoners he was in charge of knew if they broke the law again they might get Sheriff Joe again and it wouldn’t be very much fun at all — again. He was the one that had jail outside. It’s hot in Arizona and they complained terribly of the heat, to which protestation he would point out that although it was 113 degrees in Arizona, that our troops who were in Iraq were in 120-degree weather with full body armament. He is the one that made the men wear pink underwear. And he gave them pink towels, too. They got bologna sandwiches to eat.
I understand Paul Ryan and both Arizona Senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake (Republicans), and, of course, all the Democrat Party have condemned the President. Thank Goodness for President Trump, who, like Sheriff Joe, does the right thing under fire.
