AZ Sheriff Calls USA ‘Sanctuary Nation’ ➠ Video
Forget so-called “sanctuary cities” – Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County, AZ, says President Barack Obama has turned the United States of America into a sanctuary nation.
“Well, there’s 276-plus sanctuary cities, but in fact, President Obama has really sanctioned this entire country as a — it’s a sanctuary nation when it comes to immigration,” Sheriff Babeu said on Fox Business Network.
Babeu, who supports Kate’s Law to deal with deported felons that return to the United States, says President Obama is to blame for not enforcing the law:
We see this murder out in San Francisco. Sadly this represents just one of thousands and thousands of crimes that happen throughout our country because of a lack of enforcement of the laws on the books when it comes to immigration. And the president’s responsible for this.
Babeu said the Obama administration had said illegals who have been in the country five years would get deferred action. But now Homeland Security is telling its agents not to act on illegals in the country since January.
“And at the same time, [they]released thousands and thousands of criminals that they held in their custody. So, this is the president’s fault that all these future crimes that will occur, you don’t have to be the sheriff to figure out what’s going to happen. You’re going to have murders, you will have rapes, you will have armed robbery, burglary, and everything else… It will get worse,” he said.
