On Friday Sheriff Joe Arpaio told NewsMax TV he believes the President Barack Obama intentionally caused the current crisis of thousands of unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border to force “Congress to do something” or “shove some more executive orders down our throat.”
Arpaio, who has come under fire by the Obama administrations Justice Department for his strong enforcement of immigration law, said once the children are processed a series of events will occur. They will be sent to relatives, some not here legally themselves, and they won’t report to ICE in 30 days like ordered to and thereby those youths will gain amnesty.
Admitting it was “bizarre,” the Maricopa County Sheriff said, “I think the White House, they make a lot of mistakes, but I think they knew what would happen. I think they wanted the controversy so they could either force congress to do something or he’ll shove some more executive orders down our throat.”
