“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.
