Sheriffs: Stop "Sanctuary" Cities
Despite President Obama’s claims, not all law enforcement supports his immigration non-enforcement policies. Local sheriffs across the country have been forced to deal with dangerous criminal aliens and their impact on communities nationwide.
To have literally millions of people in the country with absolutely no identity and no background checks as to their potential criminal past makes a mockery out of our criminal justice system and puts our citizens and our institutions, including our schools, at risk. — Sheriff Donald Smith
The Featured Sheriffs
Sheriff Mike Chapman
Sheriff Sam Page
Sheriff Ana Franklin
The Federal leadership has encouraged illegal aliens to come to America and to stay without any fear of deportation through their messaging and policy…The President and every Congressman took an Oath to protect and defend this Nation. We need to hold them to their solemn obligation. — Sheriff Sam Page
What Can You Do?
- Contact your local sheriff and ask them to join with their colleagues in demanding that the federal government carry out its responsibility to enforce our immigration laws. (Download a sample letter)
- Find your local Sheriff on the National Sheriffs Association member directory.
- Contact FAIR’s Law Enforcement Relations Manager, Bob Najmulski to find out how you can get involved with sheriffs in your community.
- Contact your Senator and tell them to end dangerous sanctuary cities.
Open borders…not only allow those ‘innocent’ good hard working families that would otherwise be desirable assets to our country, it also allows an ease of truly dangerous criminals to flow in and out of our country to freely commit crimes against both American citizens and to victimize and engulf those immigrants into criminal enterprise and trafficking crimes. — Sheriff Ana Franklin
