Sheriff Joe Arpaio engages in "un-American and uncivilized" law enforcement tactics with his tent city jail and his record of aggressive enforcement of immigration laws, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said Thursday at a Flagstaff, Arizona rally.

"It's easy for bullies like Sheriff Arpaio to pick on people who have no power, but if I'm elected president, the president of the United States does have the power," Sanders said of the Maricopa County lawman, reports The Washington Post

"Watch out, Joe!"

Arpaio, who calls himself "America's toughest sheriff," has endorsed GOP front-runner Donald Trump, who has made cracking down on illegal immigration a cornerstone of his presidential campaign.

Sanders told the audience of just under 3,000 people who gathered at a Navajo casino that his wife, Jane, visited Arpaio's tent city in a separate campaign swing through Arizona, and the sheriff showed up to offer her a personal tour.

She ended up asking the sheriff several pointed questions, Sanders said, after he "kind of ambushed" his wife.

"She asked him about racial profiling and he didn't have an answer," Sanders said. "She asked him about conditions in tent city and other abuses that he has perpetuated, and he didn't have an answer.

"You know what, he cannot have an answer because what he is doing is un-American and uncivilized."
