UPDATE: Trump pardoned Arpaio. Show your outrage by signing this petition now. We'll have a new petition on our next steps soon!

Donald Trump grudgingly (and only temporarily) distanced himself from White supremacist violence and racist terrorism.  He is now preparing to pardon former sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of criminally and flagrantly disregarding a federal judge’s order to halt immigration round-ups that led to abuse of minorities in Maricopa County, Arizona.

It is particularly appalling when a person sworn to uphold the law violates the constitutional rights of Americans, as Arpaio did. Pardoning him would send a clear and supportive message to racists and violent extremists. Join us calling on Donald Trump not to shield Joe Arpaio from the consequences of his crimes.
