NRATV: Sheriffs Rally Against Sanctuary Cities

NRA News Investigative Reporter Ginny Simone sat down with two U.S. sheriffs, Thomas Hodgson of Bristol County, Massachusetts, and Sheriff Sam Page of Rockingham County, North Carolina, to discuss sanctuary cities and the dangerous mindsets of people like Nancy Pelosi who support them.

“Nancy Pelosi, in my view, is one of the people that makes us less safe by suggesting that sanctuary cities are somehow beneficial to improving the quality of life or protecting the citizens of our nation," Sheriff Hodgson said. "Because those of us who have boots on the ground know.”

Sheriff Hodgson further expresses his disbelief that elected officials like Nancy Pelosi and Rahm Emanuel openly defy immigration laws and taut the "benefits" of their home state sanctuary communities. "What's at stake is more people dying, more anarchy in our country and it's the beginnings of eroding our democracy," he said.

The presence of sanctuary cities is why law enforcement officers like Sheriffs Hodgson and Page support national reciprocity. Law-abiding citizens, they say, should never be left defenseless. 

"'The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,'" said Sheriff Page, quoting the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. "How complex is that? Your constitutional protections don't drop off when you cross the border from your state to another state."
