Arizona Sherriff Babeu: "Our Own Government Has Become Our Enemy"
Two weeks ago Pinal County (Ariz.) Sheriff Paul Babeu told the media that the Obama Administration was targeting Arizona law enforcement officials.
Today, Sheriff Paul Babeu told reporters that…
“Our own government has become our enemy.”
CNS News reported:
Pinal County (Ariz.) Sheriff Paul Babeu is hopping mad at the federal government.
Babeu told CNSNews.com that rather than help law enforcement in Arizona stop the hundreds of thousands of people who come into the United States illegally, the federal government is targeting the state and its law enforcement personnel.
“What’s very troubling is the fact that at a time when we in law enforcement and our state need help from the federal government, instead of sending help they put up billboard-size signs warning our citizens to stay out of the desert in my county because of dangerous drug and human smuggling and weapons and bandits and all these other things and then, behind that, they drag us into court with the ACLU,” Babeu said.
The sheriff was referring to the law suits filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the U.S. Department of Justice challenging the state’s new immigration law.
Sheriff Babeu received death threats from the Mexican mafia in early July.
