Jones posed the question: "Could it be Trump that saved Arpaio from a fraudulent investigation and then Arpaio saves Trump?" "I didn't care at all". Despite narrowly avoiding jail time for refusing to stop his officers from arresting people based on their presumed immigration status, Mr Arpaio is making immigration a focal point of his campaign.
"And anytime you want to come down, or anybody we'll be glad to show you the evidence", he added.
"Now you're bringing that up", Arpaio said during the tense back-and-forth live on the network.
"No doubt about it. We have the evidence".
Arpaio was a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, and Trump showed his gratitude by pardoning him in August following a contempt of court conviction. The era when Obama said he was born in Hawaii was a time when foreigners could obtain Hawaiian birth certificates.
Trump said, when the issue was grabbing headlines daily, that he didn't know because he didn't have evidence about Obama's birth.
He continued: "It's unfortunate there's problems in other countries, but that's. you live in those other countries, you have to do something there whether it's through the political system in those countries to try to alleviate the problem".
Ward, a right-wing former state senator, went on to praise Arpaio, calling him a "patriot" and "a leader on fighting illegal immigration" who's "fought for the rule of law".
After announcing that he would run to replace Arizona Sen. But he had an ally in Trump, who had campaigned alongside Arpaio. His original crime was possession of one gram of marijuana-barely enough to affect an adult human in the first place. What's wrong with that? "I'm not going to go into all the details, yeah, it's a phony document ..." His campaign manager says they filed the paperwork with the U.S. Senate on January 9th. These are strange, scary times. When the family's dog came running out of the fire, a SWAT team member forced the dog back inside to be burned alive. This isn't a stunt.

It will likely mean that immigration - and conservative hard-line views on the subject - will dominate a Republican primary in a state that is now almost a third Latino and in a country where Hispanics are gaining increasing clout politically nationally.
