El Paso Sheriff Has A New Dance

El Paso Sheriff Richard Wiles once again has said one thing then changed his mind and said the opposite for political purposes. According to an article by the Austin Bureau of the El Paso Times, Richard Wiles has gone on the campaign trail with Gubernatorial Candidate Bill White and spoken on behalf of White's border security proposal. The plan "promised immediate funding for 1,250 law enforcement officers to secure Texas' border with Mexico".

In the article Richard Wiles says:
"This is what we've been talking about for years, and nobody would even consider it," "He understands that by providing those extra officers, not only are we keeping El Paso safe, but we are keeping Texas safe, too."
Yet in his testimony to the United States Senate Judiciary Committee in May of 2009 the same double talking Richard Wiles says:
"Immigration and immigration enforcement rest solely with the federal government and federal agencies."
"In the past, there has been discussion of local, county and state law enforcement agencies "assisting" in the area of immigration enforcement; this is not good policy".
So what is it going to be Wiles? Make up your mind.

For those of you who don't know, this is standard operating procedure for Richard Wiles. He has a history of double talking his way through anything without being called out on it. That is going to change now. I have said it before and I will continue to say it again until the people of El Paso see the truth.  He did it when he was Chief of Police, he did it on the campaign trail when he ran for Sheriff and now he is doing it as the Sheriff of El Paso County for Bill White's campaign.

In previous posts I have referred to it as the Texas Two Step. But Wiles has taken it a step further. He has a new dance that is the latest craze and it goes something like this..........

You put your LEFT foot in,
You put your LEFT foot out,
You put your LEFT foot in
and you jerk us all around.
You do the Hokey Pokey
and you turn your answers all around,
that's what your all about!

Do the Hokey Pokey,
You tell the truth about him
And he'll stick you in the Pokie,
That's what he's all about!

  1. It can also be said that Wiles commented about law enforement requesting to see ID at a meeting recently. Sheriff Wiles mentioned (and I'm paraphrasing) that he doesn't mind showing ID at a grocery store, as he can always leave the store without being forced to show ID. He (Wiles) doesn't want to drive down a road and be stopped to forced show an ID without due reason or process for a crime that was committed.

    I can only mention about the many individuals out there who have been subjected to DIMS arrest or stopped for the purpose of showing ID and insurance at stop points were not given the full constitiutional right of due process or reason during the time Wiles was Chief of police.

    Question: Is it only fair for citizens (tax payers) to be forced to show ID and insurance without due process and not for illegals or public servants?


Thank you for your comments.
