Sheriff Claims Border Patrol has Told Officers to STOP Arresting Mexican Illegal Immigrants... to Keep Official Figures Down
Border Patrol agents have told dozens of law enforcement officers to stop arresting illegal immigrants crossing into the U.S. from Mexico, an Arizona sheriff has claimed.
Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever claims the order was issued to reduce official figures on the number of apprehensions at the border.
He said agents have instead told him and other law enforcement officers to chase the immigrants back towards Mexico.
He claims has been 'flooded' with emails supporting his accusations.'
