Sheriff Babeu: Obama’s Policies Have Turned America into a ‘Sanctuary Country’

Thursday on NewsmaxTV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” the sheriff of Pinal County, AZ, Paul Babeu, said America is a “sanctuary country,” because “there is no consequence for breaking immigration law.”

Sheriff Babeu said, “President Obama, Eric Holder, the current AG, and Jeh Johnson and Napolitano before him have gutted our immigration law to the point that they [illegal immigrants] have far stronger rights, including  the criminals, the most serious offenders of criminals who don’t even have standing, legitimate standing, in our country—commit murder, rape, kidnapping—and what happens to these guys? They’re released back into—not the streets of the country they came from—[they are released] in our communities .”

He continued, “What do we suspect is going to happen? More of this is to come sadly and thousands and thousands of victims will be victimized with this intentional—with this deliberate indifference by this president and his failures on immigration to enforce the law.”

“People from foreign countries who have broken the law to get here shouldn’t be immune from them. And this whole idea—275 sanctuary cities—forget that this is a sanctuary country. There is no law because there is no consequence for breaking immigration law.”

“Every good decent American that abides by the law should be outraged by the fact that the very foundation of our country, the rule of law, has been undermined by this president Obama.”
