The controversial Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who says he has been offered a key position with the Department of Homeland Security, praised the West Bank separation barrier while on a 2015 junket to Israel.
Clarke has been to Israel at least twice: in 2011 as part of a delegation of police chiefs and sheriffs organized by an AIPAC-affiliated charity, and in 2015 in a trip to Israel and Russia paid for by the National Rifle Association.
On the 2015 trip, Clarke took a helicopter tour of the country, tweeting photos captioned: “Israel’s border wall at the West Bank…The wall works.”
Clarke, a vocal supporter of President Trump, is currently being sued by the family of a man who died of dehydration after 10 days in solitary confinement in a Milwaukee jail.
