Arpaio was facing six months in prison, starting October 5, after he was convicted in July for violating a federal court order prohibiting racial profiling of Latinos.

Donald Trump's presidential pardon of disgraced former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio drew sharp reactions from social justice groups on Friday.

And in fact, a Trump administration official revealed Wednesday the White House has already prepared the paperwork for Arpaio's pardon. He became the Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona in 1992. "He considered all the circumstances surrounding this case, including the fact that Sherriff Arpaio is 85 years old and had served in the military, the DEA and as a sheriff for five decades".

"Throughout his time as sheriff, Arpaio continued his life's work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration", the press release said. This would have involved an FBI background investigation on Arpaio and could have taken months or even years.

During his August 23 broadcast of The Alex Jones Show, Jones said that he had been told Trump would pardon Arpaio.

"By pardoning Arpaio, Trump made it clear that institutional racism is not just OK with him". Mulvaney reverses on debt ceiling MORE (D-Ore.) on Saturday called President Trump's pardon of controversial former Sheriff Joe Arpaio a violation of the president's oath of office.

Arpaio was an early supporter of Trump during his presidential campaign, but he himself lost reelection as sheriff last November.

"If they can do this to me - after 55 years in law enforcement, two parking tickets in my life - and I have to sit in the defense table over this contempt of court, so we'll see what happens", he said. He would have faced a maximum of six months in jail, though his age and lack of previous convictions may have led to a more lenient sentence. "All right? But Sheriff Joe should feel good", Trump said.

Asked about Trump's erstwhile catchphrase that Mexico would pay for the wall, a promise he's avoided recently, Sanders said "he hasn't said they're not, either".

Based on Trump's Phoenix rally speech Tuesday evening, there is greater concern that our president is completely unhinged and deranged.

Remember how we gave President Obama such a hard time about delaying on giving pardons to so many people who had received such harsh sentences for non-violent drug crimes?

In the 1990s, at the start of his tenure, Arpaio opened Tent City jail, which housed inmates outdoors in the blistering Arizona sun.

Rep. Andy Biggs tweeted, " I applaud @POTUS @realDonaldTrump for his pardon of @RealSheriffJoe, bringing justice to this political witch hunt".

"Once again, the president has acted in support of illegal, failed immigration enforcement practices that target people of color and have been struck down by the courts".
