    I sincerely hope for the sake of America's future, that I'm wrong about that.
    I hope you are wrong too. This is what the 2nd is about.

    None of these sheriffs were elected or appointed as lobbyists. Their job is to enforce the law as it exists.

    I'll predict again that they will accomplish nothing in Washington. What leverage do they have? What real pressure can they bring to bear on anyone?
    If they could force the GOP to pass fair legislation that deals with the USA's immigration problems that would be great.

    Who thinks that will happen anytime soon?
