Pinal County, AZ Sheriff and Congressional candidate Paul Babeu (R) stated President Obama “has led the largest prison break in American history” and federal officials “should be criminally responsible” for crimes committed by released illegal immigrants on Wednesday’s “Making Money with Charles Payne” on the Fox Business Network.
Babeu said, “Barack Obama, Charles, has led the largest prison break in American history. 67,000 prisoners, these are criminal illegals that have been released onto our streets in America. And instead of visiting the prison to talk about how harsh we are with these prisoners, why doesn’t he meet with…just one of [the parents of children killed by illegal immigrants], and hear their voice and their pain, American citizens, instead trying to stand up for these illegals and stand up criminals and quote their rights, it’s outrageous.”
He added that illegal immigrants who are released will not be supervised, and “last year alone, 193 convicted murderers, who by the way, are not from America, were released into our communities, one of which, a Russian right in my community, in Pinal County, Arizona, who had stabbed a criminal informant, poured gasoline on him, lit him on fire while he was still alive to kill him, and they just released him, instead of sending him back to Russia, and the lame excuse we get from the Obama administration is, well, we didn’t have proper travel documents. This is insane, these guys should be criminally responsible for all these crimes that are committed against our citizens, because they knowingly release them to our communities.”
