Paul Babeu, the sheriff of Pinal County, Ariz., told CNS News that, when it comes to immigration, the federal government has become the enemy.
"Our own government has become our enemy," he said, "and is taking us to court at a time when we need help."
You may remember Babeu from Sen. John McCain's "complete the danged fence" ad, in which the sheriff and the senator stroll along the border discussing border patrol and illegal immigration.
Babeu's border-hawk stance and penchant for self-promotion have led some to label him a less abrasive version of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. But Arpaio was a law enforcement officer who turned politician, while Babeu is a politician turned sheriff.
