FOXNews.com - Arizona Sheriff Agrees to Meet With Billboard Owner Over 'Offensive' Image

Pierson, who described the photo as a "beautiful, holy image of a wonderful and radiant family," added that he also posted the billboard because he wanted to show that millions of illegal immigrants are not in the U.S. to do harm.

"Most immigrant families are in the country to make a better life and to maybe raise a family, certainly contribute to the community," Pierson said, adding that he hopes the dialogue would change so as to "balance the clear need to get the bad guys and get them out of our society but also to pay attention to the human dignity of individuals and families who have come here seeking a better life as many of our forebearers did."

But Babeu said the effort to depict him as racist not only is inaccurate, the photo is of an El Salvadoran family that is in the country legally.

Babeu said that border patrol officers have apprehended hundreds of people from countries that are listed as state sponsors of terrorism. He added that by casting a racial pall over the border security issue is to do a disservice to national security and law enforcement

And the shit keeps comming !
