President Trump pardons former Maricopa Country Sheriff Joe Arpaio

President Trump’s pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio continues to generate a reaction.

One of Arpaio’s attorneys, Jack Wilenchik, believes the former sheriff wasn’t clear as to what the order was about. Attorney Keith Beauchamp attended a gathering of lawyers protesting the pardon. He says it wasn’t right to do it before the sentencing because the case was still moving through the legal process.

Danny Ortega, former chair of the National Council of La Raza (now known as Unidos U-S),reiterated what he believes to be some of the many instances where the sheriff’s deputies engaged in racial profiling.
