The majority of local sheriffs in House Speaker John Boehner’s Ohio district are heading in to meet with the top house lawmaker’s office on Wednesday, Breitbart News has learned.
Six out of seven sheriffs of the counties that comprise Boehner’s eighth congressional district of Ohio will meet with Boehner’s district director Ryan Day on Wednesday at 2 PM local time.
“The purpose of the meeting is to get the congressman, the Speaker of the House, together with the sheriffs of his district,” Sheriff Richard K. Jones (pictured) of Butler County, Ohio, said in a phone interview with Breitbart News on Tuesday afternoon. “We’re basically asking that the Speaker not bring this [any immigration bills] out of [conference] committee. If it goes to [conference] committee, the Senate’s version, we do not want this version that the Senate sent over to the House to come out of the House on immigration.
“What we’re trying to accomplish is to put pressure on the House not to bring this bill out of the House,” Jones continued. “Law enforcement, sheriffs, around the country, a majority of us, border states and non-border states, we’re having issues when they come into the United States with the crime, the drugs, the same old thing.”
Jones gave several examples of crimes that illegal immigrants have committed in Butler County, part of Boehner’s district, in recent years.
A 9-year-old girl was molested by an illegal, then he left and went back to Mexico. It took us six to seven years to get this individual back and he left her to run home naked in the neighborhood after he molested her. He’s in prison after we got him back. There was an elderly lady where her house was broken into by an illegal who molested her then in the process made her go take a shower and clean up then drive him to the ATM machine. He was illegal. There was a lady who was hit by a vehicle and knocked down. And she’s in a wheelchair. I could go on. There was another lady who was killed by a group of illegals and they left the scene and it goes on. There’s killings, there’s stabbings, drugs have increased coming in from Mexico. This is just Butler County, Ohio. In Ohio, it’s totally out of control, the drugs that are coming in, the killings.
Jones said he has been to the border twice with the sheriff of Cochise County, AZ, who serves with him in the National Sheriff’s Association. “We’ve started seeing that our jails are filling up with people who are committing these crimes, getting out, re-committing crimes, getting out,” Jones said. “Then they would flee; they would leave. Then we started having them to where they were committing heinous crimes.”
