President Obama is making life worse, not better, along Arizona’s border with Mexico, Pinal County, Az., Sheriff Paul Babeu said Tuesday.
“He has manipulated the data, had agents assigned to low traffic areas and attempted to quiet dissent by calling those who question his approach as misinformed without offering any evidence to support these allegations.” Babeu said 1,500 Border Patrol agents that are mandated by Congress “are not being hired and we see a submission of another 300 Border Patrol agents that are being cut. That’s approaching almost 10 percent of our Border Patrol that is not being added to guard and defend America.”
Babeu said rising terrorism threats make this a dangerous time to leave the border poorly guarded.
