Katie Pavlich reports on the increase that some border counties in Arizona are seeing now that “comprehensive immigration reform” talk is in vogue.
We are seeing an uptick in bodies as of the last couple of weeks. We are starting to see large groups again in our AOR [Area of Responsibility]. The groups are up into the 20 to 40 range,” Pinal County Sheriff Department Lieutenant and SWAT team member Matthew Thomas tells Townhall.
Thomas tells Townhall Pinal County deputies are bracing for a “mad dash” as hints of amnesty continue.
This was very predictable. The more members of both parties, and in particular the president, talk about “pathways to citizenship” for those “living in the shadows,” the more real the possibility of snagging US citizenship despite having routinely broken the law becomes. So more will sneak across to take advantage of us.
