It was Richard Nixon who declared the "War On Drugs." It's been going on for almost 50 years now.

The sheriff of Pima County, which lies south of Babeu's Pinal County and IS on the border disagrees with Babeu's claims.


"Pima County Sheriff Chris Nanos said his office had not received advisories from federal officials regarding an increased potential for violence between cartel members and "rip crews."
"I'm just not sure where he's getting his information," Nanos said. "We’ve not seen any increase in activity in our area, and in fact, our referrals to Border Patrol have been decreasing in the last year or so."
"I hate to think that he’s grandstanding or anything, but I don’t know of anything or significant change that would make me issue an warning to my deputies in this county," Nanos said. "If he has intelligence that's different from mine, I would certainly be interested in that."
Nanos noted that Pima County shares the longest border with Mexico of any county in the nation, covering 126 miles. "I would hope that somebody would give me a heads-up," Nanos said."

The Pima County Sheriff's Office has no jurisdiction over that part of the county through which the smuggling pack trains encountered in Pinal County are passing. It is the exclusive criminal jurisdiction of the federal and tribal governments.
