Arpaio's supporters who agree with his stance on immigration say he is the real victim here. In an interview with the popular conspiracy website InfoWars, Arpaio made a direct appeal to the president: 

“Where is President Trump on this case?” he asked, adding: “I’m being convicted for honestly trying to enforce the immigration laws that Trump swore during the campaign he would uphold if elected president.”

While he would appreciate and accept a pardon, Arpaio says he won't request one.

And those who opposed Arpaio's policies say nobody deserves jail more. He was found in contempt of court for his refusal to end unconstitutional racial profiling policies that targeted Hispanics and other racial minorities. Karma's a bitch, Joe.
