Mexican Mafia Gives "Green Light" To Kill AZ Sheriff

The Mexican Mafia has threatened Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu with his life, ordering a "green light" to take him out for his support of Arizona's new immigration law, SB 1070. A "green light" indicates that the assassin given the order must complete the murder or he will be killed himself, as will his family. "I understand this threat, yet I will not run in fear or change my support for SB 1070 and my demands for President Obama to secure our border with 3,000 armed soldiers in Arizona and start building the fence again. I'm always armed and as every law enforcement member knows, we always have to be aware of our surroundings and possible threats," he said.

This threat comes amid several previous threats from drug cartels. A couple of weeks ago, Mexican drug cartels threatened Arizona police officers with snipers. It was also announced that the U.S. closed park land around the Mexican borders to Americans, successfully ceding the territory to Mexican criminals.
