    Sheriffs Plan to Converge on Capitol, Call for Secure Border

    by Caroline May 10 Nov 2014, 10:06 AM PDT

    A group of sheriffs is looking to mobilize their peers around the country to gather in Washington, D.C. to call on Congress and the Obama administration to secure the border.

    According to a letter from Bristol County, Massachusetts Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson, obtained by National Review, Hodgson is looking to convene fellow sheriffs at the Capitol on Dec. 10 to “encourage immediate action” to secure the border “once and for all.”

    “Never before in our nation’s history has it been so important for the American sheriffs to stand united and speak with one voice to secure our nation’s borders,” Hodgson writes in his missive. “No longer can we sit idle while the inaction of our Federal Government marginalizes our ability to preserve public safety, enforce our laws, and protect the Constitutional rights of all who legitimately reside and work in our communities.”

    According to Hodgson, he and several other sheriffs are working to get at least 200 sheriffs to join in the journey to D.C. for a meeting and press conference with lawmakers.

    “Senator Jeff Sessions, Senator David Vitter and other members of Congress have agreed to join us at the Capitol to demand immediate action to secure our borders as the first step in achieving legitimate immigration reform in the future,” he wrote. “Several sheriffs have agreed to work in a spirit of cooperation to assist in recruiting at least 200 sheriffs to travel to Washington, D.C. for this historic meeting and press conference with members of Congress.”

    Despite massive Democratic midterm loses, Obama has remained adamant that he will move forward to take executive action on immigration before the end of the year. Republicans have been considering using the power of the purse to prevent such actions, and the sheriffs’ planned meeting is set to occur two days before government funding runs out.

    Sheriffs Plan Huge Gathering in Washington to Oppose Obama’s Executive Amnesty

    Sheriffs Plan Huge Gathering in Washington to Oppose Obama’s Executive Amnesty

    Sheriffs across the country – furious at Obama’s upcoming executive amnesty for illegals – are planning a “massive gathering” in Washington, D.C., to speak out against it, hoping to ignite a national uprising.

    Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson of Bristol County Massachusetts sent a letter to organize a meeting of sheriffs in Washington, D.C., on December 10, two days before the existing government-funding bill expires, to meet with congressmen and encourage them to take action to secure the border, NROreported.
    Never before in our nation’s history has it been so important for the American sheriffs to stand united and speak with one voice to secure our nation’s borders,” Hodgson wrote. “Senator Jeff Sessions, Senator David Vitter and other members of Congress have agreed to join us at the Capitol to demand immediate action to secure our borders as the first step in achieving legitimate immigration reform in the future. Several sheriffs have agreed to work in a spirit of cooperation to assist in recruiting at least 200 sheriffs to travel to Washington, D.C. for this historic meeting and press conference with members of Congress.”

    As Ryan Lovelace speculated, the timing of the sheriffs’ meeting with conservative congressmen suggests the congressmen may expect the showdown with President Obama over executive action on immigration will go down to the final days before government funding runs out on December 12.

    Sheriff Hodgson told NRO he thinks the American people will rally around the sheriffs’ stand for secure borders.

    He says the sheriffs will send the message that: “We are sick and tired of being marginalized in our ability to protect our citizens. We want the border secured. And until you do that, until you secure these borders, which you’ve been telling us since Day One, you will never ever have legitimate comprehensive immigration reform.”

    TRN is hearing reports that among the Sheriffs attending may be Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke (below), but their spokespersons would not confirm or deny it at this early stage.



    The secure borders Sheriffs are urging Americans to contact their local Sheriff to ask them to attend the December 10th event.

    Sheriffs Plan Massive Opposition to Obama’s Executive Amnesty in Washington

    Sheriffs Plan Massive Opposition to Obama’s Executive Amnesty in Washington

    Freedom Outpost
    Tim Brown November 10, 2014

    In light of Barack Obama's defiance to institute amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens in America, following his public spanking on Tuesday, constitutional sheriffs from across America are planning a massive meeting in Washington to oppose his usurpation of power.

    Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson sent out a letter recently which called on sheriffs to descend on Washington on December 10 to meet with congressmen and encourage them to secure the border and oppose Obama's executive action regarding amnesty. The meeting will occur just days before the existing government funding bill expires.

    "Never before in our nation's history has it been so important for the American sheriffs to stand united and speak with one voice to secure our nation's borders," Hodgson wrote. "No longer can we sit idle while the inaction of our Federal Government marginalizes our ability to preserve public safety, enforce our laws, and protect the Constitutional rights of all who legitimately reside and work in our communities."

    "As a fellow Sheriff, and someone who shares a common mission and obligation to defend the public safety and national security concerns of our citizens, I am respectfully asking that you join me and our brother and sister Sheriffs on December 10, 2014 in [sic] at the United States Capitol to encourage immediate action by Congress and the Administration to pass legislation that will secure border security once and for all," he added.

    Hodgson said that he already had the support of members of Congress, as well as several senators.

    "Senator Jeff Sessions, Senator David Vitter and other members of Congress have agreed to join us at the Capitol to demand immediate action to secure our borders as the first step in achieving legitimate immigration reform in the future," he wrote. "Several sheriffs have agreed to work in a spirit of cooperation to assist in recruiting at least 200 sheriffs to travel to Washington, D.C. for this historic meeting and press conference with members of Congress.

    Sheriff Hodgson told National Review Online, "I think by the sheriffs going there in big numbers, it places an incredible amount of emphasis on the most important thing that is impacting us in the biggest way in our country across every spectrum of our society, from medical to economics to safety and national security, and that is secure the borders. We don't need people to sit down there in Washington and sort of intellectualize what they think is the right thing to do without listening to the people who are dealing with these problems day-in and day-out and know the problems intimately."

    The Massachusetts sheriff believes that the meeting will motivate citizens to rally around the sheriffs to address the "significant threat to the welfare and safety of our American people and legal residents."

    He wrote that the policies of the Obama administration, which have encouraged illegal immigration, "have created serious threats to our domestic and national security."

    "The citizens of our nation are counting on the American Sheriffs to fulfill our oath to preserve law and order and live up to our responsibilities as guardians of the United States Constitution," he exhorted. "Given the fact that 25 people in the United States are killed each day by illegal immigrants, and our schools are becoming overcrowded and more costly, our public health is threatened by new diseases and ailments introduced by people living in our communities illegally, and the fact that benefits are being given and violations of laws forgiven for a select group of non-citizenss, makes clear our obligation to act now before we erode the confidence and faith citizens have in Sheriffs across the country and throughout our history."

    Hodgson also told NRO that US sheriffs are "sick and tired of being marginalized in our ability to protect our citizens. We want the border secured. And until you do that, until you secure these borders, which you've been telling us since Day One, you will never ever have legitimate, comprehensive immigration reform."

    Constitutional sheriffs are the last line of defense against a tyrannical government and as we have seen many sheriffs stand against the Obama administration's push for more unconstitutional gun legislation and against Islamic State threats, we now see them beginning to take a stand against their illegal policies regarding immigration. Take the time to call your sheriff and encourage him to attend in December. Let's show them that we support upholding the law of the land and are behind them in their efforts.

    Sheriffs to Converge On DC, Demand GOP Block Boehner's Plan to Fund Obama's Amnesty

    by AWR Hawkins 8 Dec 2014, 4:32 PM PDT

    On Wednesday, 50 sheriffs from around the country will converge on Washington, D.C. to demand that the GOP block House Speaker John Boehner's (R-OH) plans to fund Obama's executive amnesty.

    According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), "the sheriffs will speak out against the president's recent executive amnesty which grants deferred action to millions of illegal aliens."

    Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson of Bristol County, Massachusetts organized the trip to the nation's capital. He will be joined by the other sheriffs at "a joint press conference with Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and David Ritter (R-LA), and other members of Congress."

    The press conference is being held on December 10 because that comes less than two days "before government funding expires." To date, FAIR reports that Boehner has been hesitant to say he will not fund Obama's amnesty, choosing instead to say "there are a lot of options on the table" or "we have limited options in terms of how we can deal with this."

    In reality, Boehner can see to it that Congress separates Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding "from the larger omnibus appropriation measure" and explicitly states that no funds can be used to fund Obama's amnesty. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is all but certain to oppose and attempt to block this move. Therefore, another avenue -- one of less resistance -- is to "kick the can down the road on DHS funding until early 2015 when the Republicans control both houses of Congress." This option takes Reid out of the scenario but it also means Boehner will have to be pressured all over again in January when the measure comes back up.

    Option three is to pass a bill that simply defunds amnesty. This is a straightforward approach. And although it would face "a near certain veto" it would also force Obama to come out and "hold DHS hostage to his amnesty program."

    Boehner's fourth option is to simply ignore the will of midterm election voters and obey Obama's wishes. But the sheriff's are coming to D.C. to ask the GOP to stop Boehner from doing this.

    Hallelujah! Oh wow, this is fantastic! And hiss boo on any Sheriff in this country who doesn't show up (unless of course they're sick and in the hospital)! GO SHERIFFS! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    And where are the City Police Chiefs? Where are you? Do you support American law or illegal immigration? Do you stand with the citizens you've sworn to protect or with illegal aliens here in our country stealing jobs, deflating wages, harming, stealing, drug-running, running up our welfare costs and turning our nation into bad versions of foreign cities? Where are you? Hiding behind the Mayors lining their pockets with money from "big donors"?

    I, too, am delighted by the learning that the sheriffs are willing to go public on this.

    Universal E-Verify would do wonders for enforcement, and do it for pennies on the enforcement dollar, Congress should enact Universal E-Verify. A phase-in was included in the Senate's immigration bill. But I haven't heard anything about E-Verify in the latest round of immigration disputes.
