(WBAP/KLIF) – Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn is receiving attention for comments he made about illegal immigrants during a press briefing with other Sheriff’s and ICE officials at the White House on Thursday.
The Sheriff’s were addressing challenges the legal system is posing to deportations. Waybourn pleaded with American Judges to stop delaying or preventing deportation of illegal immigrants. He said it’s an issue that is becoming more common across the United States. According to the Sheriff, more than 72% of illegal immigrants being held in the Tarrant County jail are repeat offenders.
“There were robbers in there and kidnappers and people who committed arson,” said Sheriff Wayborn. “And people who were DWI.”
Without sugar coating it, the Sheriff said it’s critical to deport criminals in the country illegally, to keep American communities safe.
“These drunks will run over your children and they will run over my children,” Sheriff Wayborn said.
