380 Sheriffs Join with US Citizens to Urge Congress to Secure the Border and Build the Wall
380 sheriffs from 40 states are calling on Congress to take action on building President Trump’s proposed border wall and securing America’s southern border.
“Without border security and immigration reform, more Americans will continue to be victims of crime. Now is the time to act,” said a letter signed by the sheriffs.
Bristol County, Massachusetts, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who’s leading the push, explained on “Your World” that Congress’ inaction on illegal immigration is impacting law enforcement’s ability to keep their communities safe.
He particularly took aim at sanctuary policies, which he said undermine cooperation between local, state and federal law enforcement, making it harder for America’s sheriffs to protect citizens and legal residents.
