Joe Arpaio is looking to get back in the saddle again as the former Arizona sheriff said Sunday that he plans to run for the position he lost in 2016.
The former Maricopa County sheriff, who was pardoned last year by President Trump for a federal contempt-of-court conviction, pledged to enforce his tough on crime polices in a statement.
“Watch out world! We are back!” Arpaio said. “I will continue to stand and fight to do the right thing for Arizona and America, and will never surrender. Those who break the law will have to deal with this Sheriff.”
Arpaio is known for housing immigrants in outdoor tents in the 100-degrees-plus temperatures of the Phoenix area.
The 87-year-old man was charged with contempt of court in 2016 for having ignored a federal judge’s order to stop arresting immigrants solely on suspicion that they were in the country illegally.
Arpaio was convicted in July 2017 and pardoned the next month.
Trump said he admired Arpaio’s work “protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration.”
