Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio is still investigating whether President Barack Obama was born in the U.S., according to The Arizona Republic.

The Maricopa County sheriff told the Surprise Tea Party Patriots that he had not given up, and that the birth certificate Obama has displayed is "a forged document."

"I'm not going to give up, and we're looking into it. I don't know how it's going to turn out," Arpaio said at the meeting with the group that urged him to look into it in 2011. The group had gathered 242 signatures asking the sheriff to find out if the birth certificate was a forgery.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's statement that he believed Obama was born in the U.S. has not swayed Arpaio, the Republic reported.

"I don't care where he's from. We are looking at a forged document," Arpaio said.

"I had nothing to do with Trump on the birth certificate. We did it on our own, because of you guys," he said, addressing the crowd at the rally.

Arpaio said that politicians have asked him to stop discussing the issue. "I know all the politicians say, 'Sheriff, don't talk about it,' but how can I back down when we started it? I'm not going to just forget it," the sheriff said.

The lead investigator in the case, Mike Zullo of Arpaio's Cold Case Posse, said about Trump's statement, "It's not going to deter us. It's not going to stop us. I am closer than ever."

Zullo said that an official at the hospital listed on Obama's birth certificate, Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children in Honolulu, Hawaii "assured me that birth never took place there, and I believe him."

Barb Heller, 59, who attended the event, said she saw no conflict between Trump's statement about Obama's birthplace and the authenticity of his birth certificate. "He said he was born in the United States. He didn't say it was a true document."
