Ohio sheriff fed up with crime stemming from border crisis calls for death penalty renewal


An Ohio sheriff said he supported the renewal of the death penalty for certain crimes as the state is ravaged by nefarious activity stemming from the porous southern border in an interview with Fox News Digital.

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones, drew a connection between President Biden's border policies and an uptick in mayhem from illegal immigrants, which he said cost his taxpayers $4 million to incarcerate them.

...Over the last three years, Jones said 1,000 illegal immigrants were thrown in his jail for committing 2,000 crimes, many violent in nature.

"We had one guy that was deported eight times. He was in my jail under eight different names, and that's what we know of," Jones told Fox News Digital.

 "He's here. He's committed murder while he's here. And we believe that this isn't the first time he's committed murder. And we've had people that have been hit with vehicles killed. We've had people that have been stabbed. So the crime is increasing."

...The White House announced last week long-awaited executive actions to stop illegal immigrants at the southern border claiming asylum if crossings reach a certain level – a move coming a few months before the November election. The order will temporarily suspend the entry of non-citizens across the southern border once the number of average border encounters exceeds 2,500 a day over seven days, officials said.

However, according to sources who spoke to Fox News, the first full day after the announcement of President Biden’s executive order restricting asylum for most illegal immigrants appeared to have no immediate impact on the massive number of migrants coming across the southern border.

Overall, there were roughly 5,600 CBP encounters on Wednesday, which includes the 4,000 illegal crossings and CBP One App releases at ports of entry...moremore
