Mass. Lawman: Sheriffs 'Tired of Being Marginalized' by Obama

Friday, 14 Nov 2014 03:56 PM

An executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants would create a national security nightmare and make it easier for terrorists to enter the United States, two veteran law enforcers tell Newsmax TV.

"There can be no comprehensive legitimate immigration reform until the borders are secured," John Hodgson, sheriff of Bristol County, Mass., said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show," with guest host Dennis Michael Lynch.

"And frankly, the sheriffs in this country and law enforcement are tired of being marginalized and being asked to turn our backs on the law by the president of the United States."  

"When you have a president telling people I don’t respect the immigration laws and I don’t think you should either, that's a license to say … why should I bother obeying these other laws?"

Sam Page, the sheriff of Rockingham County, N.C., added: "Why would we … say that people can come in here without the proper background checks. It makes absolutely no sense.

"When we don’t know who’s coming into our country, how can we control identifying persons that may have the intent to do harmful acts or criminal acts in our community?

"If you want to talk about the economics … this past year it cost about almost $2 billion in North Carolina, [with] the taxpayers for paying benefits for persons that are in North Carolina illegally. We estimate over 410,000 undocumented illegal persons living in North Carolina."

Hodgson, Page and sheriffs from around the nation will gather in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 10 to rally against President Barack Obama’s promised executive action on immigration.
