The Patriot Post® · Sheriffs Headed to Washington to Oppose Amnesty

Barack Obama’s immigration executive order is just around the corner, and it has many people already poised for opposition. That includes many of the nation’s sheriffs. Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson of Bristol County, Massachusetts, sent a letter to call on his fellow sheriffs to march on DC on Dec. 10 to oppose Obama’s plan. Hodgson wrote, “Never before in our nation’s history has it been so important for the American sheriffs to stand united and speak with one voice to secure our nation’s borders.” His goal is to bring 200 sheriffs to DC with him. He also told National Review, “We don’t need people to sit down there in Washington and sort of intellectualize what they think is the right thing to do without listening to the people who are dealing with these problems day-in and day-out and know the problems intimately.”
