Sheriff Arpaio’s face should be on a t-shirt with the word “FAIL” stamped across it. This is because what he did for many years was a major fail: racially profiling Latinos.
Sometime in 2017, Joe Arpaio was about to face the consequences for his blatant racial profiling of Hispanics/Latinos in Maricopa County. If it wasn’t for a pardon from President Donald Trump, Arpaio would have rightfully faced the music.
Unfortunately, he got off the hook and is not facing any charges for his actions. In early January 2018, he announced that he was going to run for the Arizona Senate.
Joe Arpaio is a very old guy who has had long career. Prior to becoming the Sheriff of Maricopa County in the early part of the 1990s, he worked for the Drug Enforcement Administration.
His years as Sheriff have been filled with numerous accounts of cruelty toward prisoners and corruption.
Somewhere along the way, someone accused him as a suspect of sexual assault (When talking about sexual assault accusations, we must be cautious to see where these harsh accusations are actually coming from!).
Arpaio is passionate about curbing illegal immigration. To be honest, there are a number of arguments to support Arpaio’s stance. First off, one argument is that allowing illegal immigrants to stay here disturbs the distribution of resources in the United States of America. Larger populations of people put heavier strains on resources. Also, when people who come over illegally take advantage of social services, they are being served with the tax dollars of citizens.
Many times, these immigrants are not giving back to the country in the form of taxes. Also, there really are some violent, sketchy elements that make their way over the border.

There is a lot drug trafficking, human trafficking and the trafficking of whatever else is illegal. Letting these items be brought into the United States feuls misery in the United States, as well as the cartel violence that is going on in Latin American countries.
There are also a number of reasons why Arpaio should not have done what he did. Frankly, you can’t accuse every single Hispanic person who you see of being an illegal alien.
That is extremely prejudicial and insulting. You do not know people’s back stories, and a lot of Hispanic people live in the United States who actually are citizens. Hispanic people have resided in our great country ever since the time when their western lands were taken over by America.
