HAMILTON, Ohio -- "Secure the border first."

That's the mantra of Butler County Sheriff Rick Jones, known for his strong stance against illegal immigration.

On Wednesday, Jones and five other sheriffs – three from House Majority Leader John Boehner's home district – joined in a chorus of that mantra, sending what Jones called "a helluva strong message."

The six sheriffs jokingly agreed they might be dubbed, "the gang of six," a play on words referring to the "Gang of Eight" lawmakers who put together the comprehensive immigration-reform bill that the sheriffs oppose. The Senate passed that proposal, which the sheriffs say tries to do too much at once, without giving border-security the top priority it deserves.
