Here’s a homeland security threat that doesn’t fit the rightwing extremist profile. Paging Janet Napolitano. Oh, never mind:
The Weld County sheriff’s office is looking for whoever sent it a letter threatening to put bombs around Greeley next week unless illegal immigrants are released from jail.
The sheriff’s office says the letter was handwritten in Spanish, and the threats were directed primarily toward judicial and law-enforcement officials.
Sheriff John Cooke says he wants the public to know his office is working diligently to find and arrest whoever wrote the letter. The Greeley police department and state and federal law enforcement agencies have been notified…The Weld County jail has 58 inmates who are waiting for Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to pick them up and deport them.
Remember: Nancy Pelosi thinks enforcing immigration laws is “un-American.”
Geraldo Rivera thinks it’s “anti-American.”
And Barack Obama thinks ICE agents are “terrorizing” families.
Climate of hate, anyone?
More details from Greeley Tribune:
The threat was a handwritten letter in Spanish threatening judicial and law enforcement officers with the bombs with the “intent to kill the most number of Americans,” according to a press release.
Currently, there are 58 inmates with immigration holds being held in the Weld County Jail.
