Yesterday, Joe Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt of court for defying court orders instructing his department to stop engaging in racial profiling back when he served as sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. In 2011, courts had ordered Arpaio’s department to cease its practice of detaining Latinos simply on the suspicion that they were in the country illegally, but Arpaio refused and now he faces the possibility of serving six months in prison.
That development is not sitting well with End Times radio broadcaster Rick Wiles, who used his program yesterday to call on President Trump to not only pardon Arpaio, but to also to place him in charge of the Department of Homeland Security.
“I have an idea,” Wiles said. “In addition to giving him a presidential pardon … President Trump, if you want to stand for justice and do something to strike against the deep state, please nominate Sheriff Arpaio to be the next secretary of Homeland Security.”
“The position will put him in charge of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, along with the U.S. Border Patrol Agency,” Wiles added. “Your friends will shout with excitement and gratitude and your enemies will howl in misery, like wounded wolves.”
