Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones sent a letter to Washington, D.C., today urging President Donald Trump to send federal agents to shut down business hiring illegal immigrants.
“I urge you to take a stand and do the right thing by having Immigration and Customs Enforcement sent to Ohio, specifically Butler County,” the sheriff wrote in the letter obtained by this news outlet.
“We need to get these businesses shut down that hire illegals to fill vacant positions. The American people who are forced to survive on welfare is disturbing. If we stop businesses from hiring illegal aliens, more Americans can get and maintain work,” Jones wrote in the letter.
The sheriff concluded with, “My door is always open.”
Jones has been a long-time supporter of closing the borders and has pushed an aggressive stance on illegal immigration.
