The killer at the heart of Trump's racist ad was set free--by Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio

The ad also failed to mention that in 1998, Bracamontes was arrested on drug charges in Phoenix, then released by the office of then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio “for reasons unknown,” the Bee reported.



The Rest:
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/11/02/trumps-new-immigration-ad-was-panned-racist-turns-out-it-was-also-based-falsehood/?__twitter_impression=true&utm_term=.b77cdb70af7a



In 1998, he crossed the border again and was arrested again. That’s when he was turned over to Arpaio. At that point, Bracamontes was on his second drug charge. And he had reentered the United States after being deported. And that first drug charge had been right there in Arizona, so it should have burned big and bold in any report that crossed Arpaio’s desk. In fact, it was Arpaio who held Bracamontes after his first charges. He was a repeat visitor to Arpaio’s tent city.

But … Arpaio let him go. He didn’t turn him over to ICE. Bracamontes didn’t serve out his time. Arapio let him go “for reasons unknown.” It was only after Bracamontes was arrested on another drug charge in 2001 that he was deported a second time. He reentered the country a third time under Bush.

The real story of the killer at the start of Trump’s ad is that he was deported under Clinton and returned under Bush. And that Joe Arpaio had a chance to deport him, but was too busy making people wear pink jump suits and march around in the sun to deal with a repeat offender.
