The actor told ABC 15 during an interview that he has spoken about his possible bid for the office with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He and the Arizona sheriff star in a Reelz Channel reality show, “Steven Seagal – Lawman: Maricopa County.”

Arpaio has dubbed himself the “toughest sheriff in America,” reports USA Today.

According to Seagal, 61, the most serious problem facing the United States at present is its open borders, reports ABC 15.

Also during the interview the martial arts expert indicated he supports giving amnesty to undocumented immigrants already living in the U.S.

USA Today notes that Seagal is one of 3,000 unpaid civilians that make up Arpaio’s “posse.” The report also states that he has been deputized in a number of jurisdictions including Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas.
