Sheriff’s Tough Message To The President: ‘Amnesty Is Not Reform, It’s Giving Up’

A Northern California sheriff is harshly criticizing President Barack Obama’s approach to illegal immigration after the recent fatal shootings of two deputies, just as the president announces his own executive action on the issue. Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones vowed to crusade against illegal immigration after the shooting rampage last month by a Mexican man with a long criminal history who was in the country illegally. “Simply stated, you’re the only singular person in this entire country that can advance or adopt meaningful immigration reform,” Jones said, addressing the president directly in the video posted by his office Wednesday on YouTube. “By that very definition then, it is your singular failure alone as to why we do not yet have reform, why America continues to be at risk, and new crimes and new victims are mounting each and every day in every single state.” Jones said any national immigration policy must start with securing the nation’s borders and should not include amnesty or deferred action for those who are in the country illegally. He also blamed the president for what he termed “the hands-off” immigration policy adopted by federal agencies.
