YORBA LINDA(CBS) — A controversial Arizona sheriff talked illegal immigration in the Southland Tuesday night.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio whose strict law-enforcement policies have drawn global attention to Arizona’s Maricopa County, is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday as part of the Liberatore Lecture Series held on the grounds of the Nixon Presidential Library & Museum in Yorba Linda.
He is expected to focus on his experience as an officer with the Federal Bureau of Narcotics during the Nixon Administration.
The event is hosted by Philip Liberatore, an Orange County radio-talk-show host and conservative activist.
