Quote of the Day | July 2, 2019

“If they don’t call us, we’re not going to catch people. If bad guys are out there basically preying on people who are undocumented or here maybe illegally, then they’re going to continue doing that. They’re going to continue attacking this group of the population, and we’re never going to know about it.”
