AZ Sheriff: Obama ‘Surrendering’ Areas of My County To Drug Cartels

On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Pinal County, AZ Sheriff and Congressional candidate Paul Babeu (R) criticized the Obama administration for “surrendering” certain areas of Pinal County to drug cartels.

Babeu said, “[L]ook no further than the signs that President Obama has erected in my county, that, literally written in English, warn American citizens that it’s not safe to travel here. So, you don’t — in law enforcement, we call that a clue. And the president is literally — it’s a sign of surrendering, quite frankly, this area to the cartels instead of joining the fight with me in Border Patrol agents on the ground, bringing a heavy hand of enforcement against these cartels.”
