Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was on “Hannity” tonight to discuss the crisis at the border, where droves of unaccompanied minors are arriving each and every day.

Border Patrol agents are allegedly being told that if they speak out about the situation, they will be disciplined or charged with a crime.

“You talk about the Border Patrol, they’re too busy changing diapers and not going after dope peddlers and illegal immigrants,” Arpaio said. “I think the president knew this was going to happen, so it’s going to help him on his executive orders if Congress doesn’t take this mission up. And it might backfire. It might backfire because of the inhumane situation.”

Arpaio said the crisis at the border is a political problem that has been going on for quite a while, adding that the “White House opened up a can of worms on this.”

“This is a great country,” Arpaio said. “You’re trying to tell me we can’t keep people from coming into our country if they really have the desire to do it? I don’t buy it.”
