Note:  A Pima County, AZ campaign ad.  He running against the (fill in the blank) sheriff dipstick who has been remarkably ineffective to the point of being considered MIA, despite location on the border.

Our county is a major drug hub.  We share 132 miles of our border with Mexico, making our county an artery for human and drug trafficking that flows into the rest of the United States.   According to studies, Americans consume $65 billion worth of illegal drugs annually, roughly what we spend on higher education.  The U.S. is also a primary source of the weapons used by cartels to unleash their mayhem.  The ATF estimates that 70% of the guns seized in Mexico within the last 2 years were smuggled from north of the border.  The current sheriff and his administration have failed Pima County by taking a backseat approach to border crime.

I have an aggressive plan to combat border crime.  Once elected, I will form a special "Border Unit."  The Border Unit will be made up of Pima County law enforcement officers, as well as law enforcement officers from other counties and states through a special program known as an "IGA" (Inter-Governmental Agreement).  Through an IGA, law enforcement officers from other agencies can accept temporary work in Pima County as part of a specific assignment.  That sole assignment will be to patrol the routes heavily traveled by cartels and coyotes.  I will also seek the manpower of tribal law enforcement officers, specifically the Tohono O'odham and Pascua Yaqui tribes.  Involving tribal agencies is vital, since tribal lands make up a vast portion of Pima County with the Tohono O'odham nation extending into Mexico.  

Part of my aggressive border plan includes revitalizing the posse.  The posse will be comprised of former law enforcement officers and ex-military.  Their prior law enforcement and military experience makes them readily available to assist our deputies without the added expense of training.  The posse will operate under the guidance of the Border Unit, while interacting with other civilian border groups and the U.S. Border Patrol.  The posse will be able to relay information quickly so that the Border Unit can make swift arrests.
