Forsyth County, Illegal Aliens, and the Sheriff’s Office…What YOU Can do About it!!!


By Sandra Robles

With the primary only 4 days away, Forsyth County Citizens have expressed a true desire to see immigration reform in our county. Now that we have expressed our concerns, we must now get off the sofa and do something about it. May 4 is the day you can make your concerns known about the cost of illegal immigration to our county.

We have a choice. We can choose an incumbant sheriff who disagrees with Arizona’s tough new immigration law, who has adamently refused to participate in the federal 287g program, and who claims he has no laws available to pick up and deport illegal immigrants. On the other hand, we can cast our vote for Dave Griffith. Not only does he applaud Arizona’s Constitutional stance on illegal immigration, he has promised to pursue diligently Forsyth County’s participation in the 287g program. He has promised to use all power’s of law available to him to crack down on one of the most expensive problems Forsyth County has.

Unlike the incumbant, Dave Griffith is motivated by his sense of duty, responsibility…dare I say love…for America and her Constitution, Forsyth County and her citizens, and his faith in God.

Will any sheriff be able to stop the problem of illegals in his county? Sadly, the answer to that is no. However, we have to start somewhere. The Federal 287g program, as well as the Secure Communities, is an excellent place to start. Our incumbant has had 8 years to get his show on the road and has failed to do so.

For all those at the 912 Symposium on Illegal Immigration last night(Bolton Street Forsyth Tech Campus), I know I am preaching to the choir. For those who were NOT there, our incumbant told us that it was “the citizens responsibility to speak to our legislators about the 287g program,” not his. I say “Gibberish” back at you Mr. Sheriff.”

It is now “the citizen’s responsibility” as the incumbant so aptly put it, to elect
a sheriff who takes seriously his responsibilities towards the citizens of Forsyth County.

Vote Dave Griffith on May 4.
