Hudspeth County Sheriff's Deputies and their families have been receiving threats over the armed standoff along the Mexico border last week.
Where is the outrage? The Sheriff says that he has no doubt at all that the Mexican military is behind the threats and that things are at their boiling point.
The fact that our law enforcement officials can be threatened by a foreign government and nothing is being done about it just shows that our Federal officials are unqualified to do their jobs and need to be replaced immediately!
Michael Chertoff and his cronies need to be kicked out of their positions and replaced with someone who is going to take our homeland defense seriously.
During a ride-along Thursday with the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department, one deputy, who has been with the department since the 1960's, told ABC-7 that this is the most tense matters have ever been along this area of the border.
In the past few days, Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department deputies and their families have received threats to stay off the Rio Grande. Sheriff Arvin West told ABC-7 Thursday morning, before departing for Houston that the Mexican military is behind all of this.
Sheriff West said, "There is no doubt in my mind -- from the first time going back to a couple of years ago and every time in between --- it's the Mexican military. In a nutshell, everybody's been trying to tell everybody that they were here...they've been here ...[and] they come here quite often, regularly."
Now Sheriff West is having to deal with threats being made against his deputies and their families. One Sheriff's Deputy, who refused to appear on camera out of fear, described the situation today in Hudspeth County as "very dangerous." and now, he said, "it's getting personal."
This has nothing to do with President Bush's weak policy regarding illegal aliens. This is homeland security and threats against people protecting us.
This is just an outrage!
Did I mention it's an outrage yet? Well it is!
