BB: I know. There’s still that small part of me that’s hopeful and optimistic.
Sheriff: No one has the guts to really do anything. It’s sad. We can straighten this out.
BB: What’s even sadder is the lack of attention from our representatives. It’s a hot potato issue. We’ve gone to Congressman Calvert’s office, who is Murrieta’s representative, and his office handed us OpEds that were printed in the local paper and said, “Okay. Here’s this. It will answer all of your questions.”
Sheriff: Where was your governor on Murrieta? I didn’t hear anything from him.
BB: He’s never said anything.
Sheriff: Where was the attorney general?
BB: She came out and said something a few days ago. She basically said we should be ashamed of ourselves because these kids are refugees and they deserve our help.
Sheriff: So who’s speaking for that side? I don’t see anything. The Congressmen who go on FOX?
BB: The biggest supporter, at least out here, is a Mexican singer named Lupillo Rivera. He has basically been mobilizing his supporters through social media by saying, “Hey, come out and support us. These racists are here again.”
Sheriff: So, I was head of the federal Drug Enforcement Agency. I say this now because no one else will. The media never gives me credit. The politicians, they all come to me allegedly to talk about immigration but they want my endorsement. Around this time, everyone’s into me. They’re bringing me ice cream and other things. I’m the immigration guy. They want my endorsement probably because I’m the immigration guy. That’s still a big issue. Especially now that we got all the kids at an election cycle. It’s almost like they imported these kids. They want to win the Senate. Why didn’t they wait? Huh? I get conspiracy theories but it’s more timing.
The President really leads the country. He sets the temple. The President. Actually, even if the Governor doesn’t like the President, it doesn’t matter. The President can mobilize the federal bureaucracy. The President is in charge of the FBI and the military. That’s under him. He’s not in charge of me. He can’t tell me what to do. I’m just a sheriff. But he sure can tell his federal employees what to do and that’s a powerful force. He can solve the problem with his own employees. He doesn’t need to rely on the Governor or the state police. He needs to set the temple through his leadership. Then the states will follow if they know he’s sincere and trying to do something. This President sure has a great travel agency. This guy is everywhere.
