Bristol County’s sheriff has no place in the US-Mexico border debate – The Boston Globe

Joanne Rathe/Globe Staff

Maybe Thomas Hodgson needs a map. The longtime Bristol County sheriff seems to think his jurisdiction has some relationship to Mexico.

In a telephone interview, Hodgson said he and other sheriffs have long advocated cracking down on immigration, to no avail.

The buses carrying inmates from Bristol County to their construction opportunity on the Mexican border probably won’t be rolling anytime soon. But that doesn’t make Hodgson’s attempt to promote himself by trashing immigrants any less nauseating.
