AZ Sheriff: ‘Hard To Argue’ That Sinaloa Cartel Doesn’t Control Parts of AZ

On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.,” Pinal County, AZ Sheriff and Congressional candidate Paul Babeu (R) said that it’s “kind of hard argue” with claims by the Sinaloa Cartel that they own parts of Arizona, and “everybody understands, get to the border, and you’re home free, before this election.”

Babeu said that crossfire between cartels “has been going on actually for years, Stuart, with the Sinaloa Cartel, which, we’ve heard 120,000 plus people in Mexico have been killed. They’re not only fighting for control of territory in Mexico, they’re actually fighting for control of territory in the United States. They say they own this part of Arizona, and it is kind of hard to argue this when we’ve arrested 21 cartel scouts in my county alone.”
