Defiant and reflective, 80-year-old Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio told Breitbart News after winning re-election that he has a message for President Barack Obama: granting amnesty to illegal immigrants is unfair to legal immigrants.
And Arpaio would like to discuss amnesty -- along with border security issues -- with Obama “man to man” directly at the White House. He would also like to reach out to Hispanic groups he said have misunderstood his intentions and bought into the negative “propaganda” about him.
“I wish the president would invite me to the White House,” Arpaio told Breitbart News. “We’ll have some wine and beer, and light up cigars.” ...
... He noted he discussed border security issues over blueberry pie and whiskey with Mexico’s president and attorney general, and he would also like to do the same with members of the Hispanic community whom he says have misunderstood his intentions by believing all of the “propaganda” about him. “I got more done with blueberry pie than a big stick,” Arpaio said.
And he insists he could have productive discussions with Obama. “I won’t even ask you for your birth certificate,” Arpaio quipped, of Obama.
And for those hoping Arpaio will leave the stage, Arpaio said to not even think about it. He has already decided to run for reelection in 2016, and he says the “age issue” is not going to work. Arpaio said his opponents threw the age card at him but it did not matter to voters. “I'm a senior citizen, and I'm proud of it,” Arpaio said.
