Fed up with the overwhelming amount of illegals in his jail, an Ohio sheriff sent a bill for the costs to Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.
“I sent him a bill for the prisoners that are in my jail. They came here illegally,” Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones told TheBlaze TV host Dana Loesch. “I’ve not gotten any money from them, but I billed them so much. And I’ll tell you what I got in return: My life was threatened.”
The millions of dollars spent on welfare programs in Ohio entice illegal immigrants to come to the state looking for “free stuff,” Jones said, adding that the FBI warned him that he was one of three sheriffs being targeted by Mexican drug cartels.
“We’ve had horrendous crimes here in this community,” Jones told Loesch. “We had a senior citizen, an elderly lady, molested by a teenager that came over from Mexico. We had another one molested — an 8-year-old girl. We’ve had drugs pouring in, more so than before the government said the borders were sealed. And we’re being run over by the drug dealers coming to this community. The violence has increased, and we’re a long way from the borders.”
The sheriff said he is also sending a letter to President Obama, “asking and pleading with him not to bring these people here to the state of Ohio, and to secure our borders.”
Jones accused the Obama administration of making it “too easy” for dangerous characters to cross the U.S. border.
“They’re going to walk in with backpacks. They’re going to put some dirty bombs together, [and] they’re going to do something really terrible. It’s too easy,” Jones said. “We don’t know who they are. They don’t have vaccinations. Our jails are full. They hit and run. It’s totally out of control, and it’s gotten worse just in the past 12 months.”
