Sheriff: Over 120,000 Illegals Arrested in One Sector

Breitbart – by Ian Hatchett

Pinal County, AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu announced that over 120,000 illegal immigrants have been arrested in just the Tucson sector of the southern border. “We have [had] 123,000 illegals arrested right here in the Tucson sector” Babeu said on Wednesday’s “Sean Hannity Show.”  He added that eight “cartel scouts” arrested in the last month.  “close to 60,000, what’s predicted to be 90,000 by October 1 of unaccompanied juveniles” are expected cross the border in just the Del Rio Sector of Texas. [Note: Babeu is likely referring to number of unaccompanied juveniles apprehended along the entire border and misspoke when he mentioned the Del Rio Sector.]  

Babeu also criticized the Obama administration’s lack of interest in securing the border, stating that Hannity has “done more on this issue…than, not just Jeh Johnson, than the president and every member of his cabinet combined.”

He concluded that unless the illegal immigrants crossing the border are deported, the additional funding that the president has requested to secure the border would go to waste, and “you might as well throw it out the window.”
