Sacramento Sheriff calls out Obama on immigration

In the wake of the killing of a Sacramento County deputy, Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones urged President Obama to take bolder action on illegal immigrants. “You’re the only singular person in this entire country that can advance or adopt meaningful immigration reform,” Jones said in a YouTube video. “By that very definition then, it is your singular failure alone as to why we do not yet have reform, why America continues to be at risk and new crimes and new victims are mounting each and every day in every single state,” Jones said in the video. “This person is in this country illegally from Mexico,” said Jones. “He has a significant criminal history.” The illegal alien killer, Marcelo Marquez, had previously been deported four times, according to Sheriff Jones. ”Only you are singularly responsible for the hands off policy that exists of the hands-off policy in Homeland Security and its subsidiaries including customs and border protection,” Jones said. “I understand the integral role that the undocumented population plays in our national and state economies. The problem I have is I can’t tell which ones are good and which ones are evil, and neither can you. By their very definition they are undocumented,” Jones said. Jones vowed to crusade against illegal immigration after the shooting rampage last month by a Mexican man with a long criminal history who was in the country illegally.
