Sheriff Joe pushed for Border Patrol chief

The Trump transition team is being urged to install the nation’s most prominent local immigration policy enforcer, Maricopa County, Az. Sheriff Joe Arpaio, as head of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

Arpaio, who lost his reelection, endorsed and appeared with President-elect Donald Trump, and he is an ally of Sen. Jeff Sessions, nominated at attorney general Friday.
