(Nexstar) – Sheriffs across the United States have signed a letter calling on the Biden Administration to take action on illegal immigration.  

Ector County Sheriff Mike Griffis and Winkler County Sheriff Darin Mitchell are among the law enforcement leaders in calling for more stringent border policies.  

Specifically, the group askes President Joe Biden to reverse course on illegal immigration policies, resume border wall construction and “embrace the common-sense public safety supporting border policies of the previous administration,” according to the letter.  

Nearly 300 sheriffs have signed the letter in 39 different states.

The Sheriffs say the Administration ‘unleashed a predictable crisis’ on the nation and put citizens at risk.
