Today, Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, announced he would run for sheriff again. Alessandra Soler, ACLU of Arizona executive director, offered the following reaction: 

“When Joe Arpaio talks about “those who break the law,” he should be referring to himself. Following our lawsuit against him and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, a federal court found that Arpaio's office profiled and illegally detained Latinos and violated their constitutional rights. President Trump might’ve pardoned him, but those who had families and communities destroyed by his unlawful tactics have not. Joe Arpaio is a racist - and he should never hold public office again.”
