Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, has endorsed Donald Trump for president.

"Donald Trump is a leader. He produces results and is ready to get tough in order to protect American jobs and families. I have fought on the front lines to prevent illegal immigration," Arpaio said in a statement released by the Trump campaign. "I know Donald Trump will stand with me and countless Americans to secure our border. I am proud to support him as the best candidate for President of the United States of America."

Arpaio has been outspoken on illegal immigration policy and has led roundups of illegal immigrants in his county. But he has said in the past that Trump's plan to deport all 11 million illegal immigrants likely isn't possible.

"I have great respect for Sheriff Arpaio," Trump said in the statement from his campaign. "We must restore law and order on the border and respect the men and women of our police forces. I thank him for his support of my policies and candidacy for President."

Arpaio is set to appear with Trump in Marshalltown, Iowa on Tuesday. According to CNN, Marshalltown has a 24-percent Hispanic population.
