WASHINGTON DC – Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey was with Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence during a press briefing at the White House on Thursday and told some federal lawmakers to be “part of the solution, or get out of the way” of local law enforcement’s effort to protect citizens from illegal aliens preying on citizens.

Sheriff  Ivey is in Washinton DC this week as Sheriffs from across the country shared their experiences and public safety challenges associated with illegal aliens, and call on Congress to act on pending legislation to increase border security and reform the immigration system.

“For some elected leaders in our country to ignore the rule of law and create a sanctuary that protects those who enter our country illegally is not only outrageous but in my opinion, is criminal and an immediate violation of the very oath they took to support, protect and defend our constitution,” said Sheriff Ivey in his statement at the White House.

“It’s time to hold those accountable for those who create sanctuaries for criminals and its time for Congress to stand with our federal law enforcement partners, instead of standing in the way of justice, and most importantly, in the way of protecting our citizens.

“Stop standing with criminals and start standing with heroic men and women who are putting their lives on the line every day to protect our citizens. Either become part of the solution, or get out of the way, because I can assure you that nothing is going to stop local law enforcement from working with our federal partners in the protection of our great nation and I mean absolutely nothing is going to stop us!”

SPACE COAST DAILY TV: Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey was among the keynote speakers on Capitol Hill in Washington DC this morning as Sheriffs from across the country shared their experiences and public safety challenges associated with illegal aliens, and call on Congress to act on pending legislation to increase border security and reform the immigration system. 

Brevard Sheriff Wayne Ivey to DC Lawmakers: ‘Get Off Your Lazy Butts and Do Your Jobs’

On Wednesday, Sheriff Ivey was among the keynote speakers on Capitol Hill as Sheriffs from across the country shared their experiences and public safety challenges associated with illegal aliens, and call on Congress to act on pending legislation to increase border security and reform the immigration system.

He joined with 200 sheriffs from every corner of the country, along with  Angel Families on Capitol Hill and met with lawmakers and administration officials to discuss the impact that illegal immigration has on their communities.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)  hosted the event, which is designed to draw attention to America’s border crisis and encouraging Congress to act.

Founded in 1979, FAIR says that it is the nation’s largest immigration reform group, with 2 million members.

“Sheriffs want immediate action by Congress in passing meaningful legislation to better secure our nation’s borders while also enhancing interior security of our communities,” said Sheriff Ivey.

“Get off your lazy buts and do your jobs,” said Ivey to members of congress not supporting the fight on illegal immigration.

“Like every American, I am deeply concerned by the opioid crisis that has impacted each of us as we are all tasked with protecting our communities against gangs, human traffickers, and the drug cartels who continue to flood our country and target our citizens. Without true border security, we can never have Homeland Security and the ability to protect our nation.”

In conjunction, the 13th annual “Hold Their Feet to the Fire” (F2F) radio row is featuring 70 talk hosts broadcasting live both days, debating immigration policy, interviewing members of Congress, law enforcement officials, experts, activists, administration officials and those who live and work along the southern border.

Sheriff Ivey will conclude his trip to Washington today as he meets with members of the House and Senate.

“I want to encourage them to take action in strengthening our borders, enhancing collaboration between local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and streamlining the process for those who wish to enter our country legally, thus giving them a pathway to citizenship,” said Sheriff Ivey.
