A group called Americans for Legal Immigration PAC has suggested Sheriff Joe Arpaio for border control chief. Arpaio has been a vocal supporter of Trump so maybe he has a shot. He certainly has demonstrated that he cares about the issue.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Sheriff Joe pushed for Border Patrol chief
The Trump transition team is being urged to install the nation’s most prominent local immigration policy enforcer, Maricopa County, Az. Sheriff Joe Arpaio, as head of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.
Arpaio, who lost his reelection, endorsed and appeared with President-elect Donald Trump, and he is an ally of Sen. Jeff Sessions, nominated at attorney general Friday.
“The American public is very thankful that Sheriff Joe Arpaio has stood up to the Obama administration and all of the power groups that are backing the illegal immigrant invasion of America,” said William Gheen, president Americans for Legal Immigration PAC.
This appointment would be a nice reward for Arpaio who was unfairly targeted by the Obama administration earlier this year.
Most importantly, it would mean we had someone in charge of border security who actually cares about border security. Imagine that!
