Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announces run for US Senate


Joe Arpaio, the controversial former Arizona sheriff who recently announced his intention to run for the US Senate, offered up an unusually aggressive solution for the fate of the young unauthorized immigrants known as "Dreamers". He also said Trump had not asked him to run for the Senate.

"So no, it had nothing to do with it". With Trumpian zeal, he ranted to me about the confederacy of haters who were hellbent on taking him down-something he believes he has in common with the president. Let's see how long they remember Flake, how long they remember governors, they all leave. I know I'll be attacked by the far left, the establishment right and of course, the liberal media. He flirted with running for governor no fewer than five times over the years before finally abandoning the idea. This isn't a stunt.

His bid could create an opening for Republican U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, who colleagues have said is planning a Senate run but has not yet made an announcement.

Until now, the Republican front-runner in the race has largely been considered to be Kelli Ward, a former state senator.

Phoenix Democratic Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema announced she would also run back in September.

Arpaio complicates the lessons the Republicans may have learned in Alabama about choosing a fringe nominee over a more "moderate" opponent, too. He has spent his career tearing apart immigrant families and devastating Latino communities, and he has no place in the U.S. Senate. "Democrats will fight tooth-and-nail to make sure Joe Arpaio never holds public office again".

Trump pushes for stricter voter ID laws after dissolving election integrity commission
Some states rejected the White House request, warning the information could be misused in voter disenfranchisement efforts. The panel was heavily criticized by Democrats , who said it was a tool for Republicans to suppress minority voter turnout.

Gallego opposes SB 1070, Arizona's attempt to enhance its protection against the flood of illegal immigrants entering the state. The former sheriff, famous for using his department to enforce immigration laws, housing prisoners in tents and dressing them in pink underwear, said his intention was to support Donald Trump's agenda in the Senate.

It certainly wasn't something political veteran Stan Barnes saw coming, nor many in the Arizona political world.

It happened because the sheriff's Cold Case Posse, when he was in office, responded to requests from constituents to investigate, and the only formal law-enforcement review of Obama's document concluded the document released by Obama's White House as his official birth certificate nearly without doubt was a forgery.

During an interview on NPR's Morning Edition, Arpaio called to deport beneficiaries of an Obama-era program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which grants work authorization and deportation relief in two-year increments to almost 800,000 applicants.

"When Arpaio is added on to it, this guy's notorious for being a convicted felon, racially profiling against Hispanic Arizonans, it will drive up turnout within our base for the fall", said Drew Sanderson of the AZ Democratic party.
