As amnesty looms, illegal immigration is picking up speed in Arizona
During his State of the Union address last night, President Obama touted the lowest illegal border crossings in 40 years, but with amnesty looming and border enforcement most likely coming after citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants, law enforcement officials in Arizona are seeing an uptick in activity.
“We are seeing an uptick in bodies as of the last couple of weeks. We are starting to see large groups again in our AOR [Area of Responsibility]. The groups are up into the 20 to 40 range,” Pinal County Sheriff Department Lieutenant and SWAT team member Matthew Thomas tells Townhall. …
ICE officials were notified of the situation and later determined everyone in the group was undocumented.
Thomas tells Townhall Pinal County deputies are bracing for a “mad dash” as hints of amnesty continue.
