Arizona Dept. of Public Safety Director: Situation on Border ‘Untenable’ and ‘Not Manageable’

During a portion of an interview with the Fox News Channel released on Thursday, Arizona Department of Public Safety Director Col. Heston Silbert said the situation on the border is “untenable. It’s not manageable.” And the “Border Patrol’s overwhelmed” and Yuma County law enforcement “can’t manage it in a way that they would want to.”

Silbert stated, “It’s untenable. It’s not manageable. Border Patrol’s overwhelmed. This is something that’s affecting the whole southwest border, but for us in Arizona, it’s having a huge impact on Yuma County, the law enforcement authorities down there, the sheriff’s department, an impact to the extent that they can’t manage it in a way that they would want to.”
