Tough Ohio sheriff declares war on illegal aliens and employers who hire them


Sheriff Richard JonesIllegal immigrants in one Ohio county had better watch out, because the sheriff is going after them and any businesses that hire them.

Richard Jones, Butler County sheriff, told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that he’d even deport American citizens “if I could.”

“We have heroin, we have cocaine, we have meth, we have marijuana coming in from Mexico,” he said. “If I have one person that’s raped, killed, car crashes where they leave the scene, that’s too much.”

He was debated by activist Gaby Pacheco, program director of, who said employers need immigrants, though she left out the word “illegal.”

“Our country needs the labor of immigrants,” she said. “America is America, it’s the nation it is, because of its immigrants.”

Not surprisingly, Jones didn’t share her opinion.

“It’s not the American dream to go to work and these employers take advantage of you,” he told Hayes. “They work you, they fire you, they abuse you, you get hurt in your job. Then they go to the hospitals and we all have to pay for it.”

The sheriff tweeted these warnings on Tuesday:
