Bristol County, MA Sheriff Thomas Hodgson (R) argued that “the Obama administration, has been marginalizing law enforcement since the beginning, in regards to our ability to get the criminally illegal aliens out of our neighborhoods” on Saturday’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on the Fox News Channel.
Speaking about the recent revelations that the government released illegal aliens with serious criminal records, Hodgson said that budget limitations could have played a role, but “these kinds of things don’t happen without the administration knowing about it.” And “Frankly, this administration, the Obama administration, has been marginalizing law enforcement since the beginning, in regards to our ability to get the criminally illegal aliens out of our neighborhoods.”
Hodgson added that ICE officials are dedicated individuals, but “the problem that is that they’re paralyzed by the fact that the politicians, particularly the administration, if they dare to say or do something different that breaks away from the political agenda of the Obama administration, they’ll be transferred to someplace they never want to go or they’ll be fired from their jobs.”
Hodgson argued that the political agenda of the Obama administration is “to break down now-secure communities and then rebuild it back up again, and this is consistent with the Obama administration’s attempt to try to get more and more people, illegals in here, and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a perfect example of that, where we’ve seen these kids coming in in droves, and we’re not able to manage it.”
