( - Ariz. Border Sheriff: Obama’s ‘Got His Hands Wrapped Around Our Throat': Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County, Ariz. told that President Barack Obama has “got his hands wrapped around our throat” as his administration sues the state of Arizona for trying to enforce the immigration laws that the federal government itself will not enforce.

Dever also said he has “zero confidence” Obama will secure the border before his presidential term is up in two years and that the president is putting the people who live and work in Cochise County at risk by willfully failing to secure that border so that he can maintain political leverage for his goal of winning an amnesty for illegal aliens.

Diaz Santillan admitted she did not have the proper papers to work legally in the United States during a press conference with her attorney Gloria Allred on Wednesday. She also said she was fired by Whitman and her husband Griff Harsh in June, 2009, after she admitted to them that she "did not have papers to work here." [Full Story]
