Sheriff Joe Arpaio requests apology from Secretary of Foreign Affairs of Mexico

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Arizona.-Mexico’s Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard Casaubón, appeared before the Mexican Senate on October 5th, 2022 and accused former Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, of murdering migrants and smuggling guns into Mexico.
The comments were reported in the media the following day. Arpaio subsequently requested Ebrard publicly apologize for his malicious attack and false statements, which places Arpaio in personal danger. Arpaio also sent a letter to the U.S. ambassador to Mexico asking him to intercede on his behalf as a U.S. citizen.
According to a recent press release issued by Arpaio, “There’s no doubt that Ebrard is using Arpaio as a scapegoat since President Biden and the U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken (Ebrard’s counterpart), have failed to resolve the current controversial U.S./Mexico border issue.”
The press release continues, “In Arpaio’s communications with Ebrard, he offered to travel to Mexico to meet with Ebrard and discuss his allegations against Arpaio. To this date, Arpaio has not received any communications from Mexican or U.S. authorities.
Ironically, when serving as the Regional Director for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Diplomatic Attaché living in Mexico, Arpaio had numerous meetings with the Mexican Attorney General and the President. He received several commendations from the U.S. and Mexican governments for his service.”
Arpaio said, “During senate testimony, Mexico’s Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo were published in the media. On October 13th, the U.S. National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, met with Ebrard at the White House to discuss disrupting transnational criminal organizations responsible for human smuggling, and trafficking drugs and firearms. Did the U.S. National Security Advisor inform President Biden or his staff about Ebrard’s vicious and slanderous comments? Also note, when Obama/Biden took office in 2009, I was a target on their ‘first 100 days’ report because of the controversies surrounding my enforcement of illegal immigration laws.”
Sheriff Arpaio said on November 1, that Mexican government within 5 days or else legal action will be initiated.
