WATCH: Arpaio "Softening", Too? Sheriff Welcomes Trump "Negotiating" Illegal Immigrant Deportations, As Trump Heads To Phoenix To Re-Explain

As news is breaking that GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump is heading to Phoenix next week for his delayed speech on immigration policy, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was on CNN this morning defending Trump's shifting positions.

"I don't know about 'softening' the stance. He's going to meet with the minority groups. He's a great negotiator. He's a great guy. He's got a great art. So, why not meet with the people and explain how he feels, and maybe negotiate. and see how they feel. There's nothing wrong with that, whether it's illegal immigration, private business or anything else. So, I'm glad that he's going to meet with those people."

Arpaio was pushed by CNN's Carol Costello about whether he was OK with Trump not deporting everyone here illegally, and the Sheriff said it depends on the laws. Costello jumped in and noted that Arpaio should know the immigration laws better than most.

"Y'know, the laws are there, but it's complicated," replied Arpaio.
