Ken Furlong and eight other Nevada sheriffs have signed on to a letter, along with a total of 274 sheriffs across the U.S., blaming President Joe Biden for criminals, drug dealers and gang members coming illegally into the U.S.
Furlong confirmed his signature on the letter Friday saying the National Sheriff’s Association put the letter together.

Also listed as signing the letter are Churchill County Sheriff Richard Hickox, Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverley, Elko County Sheriff Aitor Narvaiza, Lander County Sheriff Ron Unger, Lyon County Sheriff Frank Hunewill, Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehry and White Pine County Sheriff Scott Henriod.
The letter urges Biden to “secure the border” from transnational gang members, drug dealers, illegal guns and human traffickers.
“You must act now before our nation’s public safety resources are overwhelmed with the criminal side effects of unchecked illegal immigration,” the letter says. It charges that more people will be exposed to violence, “because of exposure to criminal illegal alien violence caused by the reckless and irresponsible policies of your administration.”
“In myriad ways, you and your administration are encouraging and sanctioning lawlessness and the victimization of the people of the United States of America,” the association charges, adding Biden knew this would happen when he ceased construction of the border wall.
