Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever testified to Congress last month about one federal prosecutor in Texas who refuses to charge illegal immigrants caught crossing the border with a misdemeanor until they've been arrested seven times. He won't charge them with a felony until they've been arrested 14 times. Come on, this is ridiculous, we need to have some consistency in enforcing our laws! That's like saying it's ok to shoplift 7 times in part of Texas until you finally get prosecuted. Most egregiously, he refuses to charge coyotes smuggling fewer than six illegal immigrants.
