During a Wednesday segment of "Your World with Neil Cavuto" on Fox News Channel, an American sheriff informed the public that his fellow lawmen from all over the country are now assembling in the nation's capital for Friday's rally and protest against the planned executive action that in effect will give millions of illegal aliens amnesty, many of them criminals.

A veteran law enforcement chief in Massachusetts sent out a letter to his colleagues throughout the country to join him in Washington, D.C. to voice their opposition to President Barack Obama’s threatened executive orders on immigration. Bristol County, Massachusetts, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson while appearing on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren discussed his plan to call attention to the criminal justice issues surrounding illegal aliens allowed to remain in the United States.

Sheriff Hodgson sent a letter to sheriffs throughout the United States urging them to join him in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 10, 2014, in order to hold a protest and rally in front of the White House and also to have a "meet and greet" with lawmakers in both houses of Congress, especially the newly elected Senators and Representatives and the new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Sheriff Hodgson said he will implore the Republicans and any Democrats who will meet with the sheriffs first secure the Southwest border before doing anything else as far as amnesty and handouts.

Hodgson told Van Susteren: “Never before in [American] history has it been [more] important for America's sheriffs to stand together and speak with one voice urging political leaders to secure the borders before doing any other immigration reforms."

In his letter, Hodgson writes, “As you know, the policies of recent years that encourage immigrants to illegally enter our country have created serious threats to our domestic and national security.”

Speaking on Fox News, Hodgson complained that President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and others have been marginalizing law enforcement. "He's correct in every detail. With this administration, public safety and national security take back seats to the drive to turn millions of lawbreakers into U.S. citizens and voters," said former police captain Joel Langston, who now serves as a security consultant for private industry.

Hodgson claims that the Obama administration is intentionally or unintentionally causing a breakdown in public safety in American communities only to later build them up again according to Obama's vision of America. "The Obama administration is attempting to get more and more illegal aliens in here, and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a perfect example of that, where we’ve seen these kids coming in droves, and we’re not able to manage it."

The matter of cost is also a concern to many sheriffs who run their counties' jail and detention systems. According to an Examiner news story, "It's been widely reported that illegal aliens comprise upwards of 27 percent of the US prison and jail population. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection -- two agencies within the Department of Homeland Security -- claim in several reports that they've apprehended over 100,000 criminal aliens whose offenses go far beyond violation of immigration laws and regulations. [O]nly about 25 percent of expenses for imprisoning criminal aliens is reimbursed by the federal government to state and local governments. This creates a hardship for taxpayers in states with high incarceration rates for criminal aliens. In some states, there's even talk of releasing criminal aliens without notifying the federal authorities."
