Action-movie star Steven Seagal is considering a run for Arizona governor, according to KNXV-TV.
The “Marked for Death” actor announced that he may consider a bid for the state’s highest office and has discussed the opportunity with the “toughest sheriff” in America: Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
If elected, Seagal reported that he would focus on border security.
“I think that our biggest problem is open borders,” Seagal said. “I think that across these borders, any kind of terrorism can come, and does come.”
Seagal added that open borders are a tremendous oversight by the current administration.
The 61-year-old also made comments about his reality TV show “Steven Seagal – Lawman: Maricopa County”, which was released recently.
The show was shot in Arizona and airs on TV Reelz Channel.
Seagal is a martial arts expert and member of Arpaio’s posse. He has been deputized with sheriff’s offices in New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana.
