Wednesday on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa Co., AZ, said Border Patrol agents are so overwhelmed by having to “change diapers” for the flood of illegal unaccompanied immigrant children they have no time to police drug traffickers.
Arpaio said, “They’re not paying attention to the drug enforcement right now because they’re changing diapers and doing everything else at the border.”
In discussing the recent numbers showing lowering drug arrests of the 90 percent illegal immigrant drug traffickers the sheriff said, “They should be deported, but they keep coming back over and over and over again – committing crimes again on the streets. How do you figure that out? Either they’re letting these guys out the back door or they’re deporting them and they’re coming back. They want to check the kids out, but they can’t even check the people that we have records on out.”
