An Ohio sheriff who asked the federal government to reimburse his county for the cost of jailing criminal aliens says the immigration-reform bill failed in the Senate because it did not solve the problem of first securing the nation's border.
An Ohio sheriff who billed the federal government for the cost of jailing criminal aliens and asked Mexico to reimburse him in his fight against Mexican-based drug rings says the Senate's failure to pass an immigration-reform bill is reason enough for states to target illegal aliens themselves.
"Make no mistake about the fact that the immigration system is beyond broken," he said. "The problem is, our border must first be secured. This Senate bill was mostly about big money and lobbyists trying to force the issue on elected officials throughout this great country."
"The law is the law. We must enforce the law we have. The only additional change in the law should be that our local law enforcement should have the authority to enforce the federal immigration law without having to obtain federal permission," he said.
