Steven Seagal

Gunning to Catch Illegal Aliens

10/17/2011 11:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1017_steven_segal_PCNMexicans looking to sneak into the United States have a brand new obstacle ... a gun-toting Steven Seagal ... who has just become an official border sheriff in Texas.

Seagal was sworn in as a sheriff's deputy in Hudspeth County, Texas this weekend ... and according to a sheriff's dept. spokesman, he'll be working full-time to help secure the border Texas shares with Mexico.

Shockingly, the rep insists Seagal's work with the department has nothing to do with his A&E reality show, "Steven Seagal: Lawman."

One of the sheriffs told Chron.com, "It became very clear to me that Mr. Seagal is not in this for the celebrity or the publicity ... He's like the rest of us that live down here, he has a sincere passion for his country and he wants to do more to help."

Holy crap. He looks fat enough to block off the entire border.
Guess we finally got that border fence and its name is Steven Seagal.

With so many that could use a full time job in this economy why does some overweight actor who certainly doesn't need it get to just waltz in and get handed a weapon. First it was illegals pretending to be citizens taking jobs (yes I know most we don't want but it's an example and pun) now it's actors pretending to be law enforcement...and politicians...etc. etc.

@jack... why would someone be afraid to call Seagal fat? It's a visual assessment which happens to be the truth and a fact.

I use to love this dude back in the day when he was hot, hot hot. I loved to see him kick ass and break arms without working up a sweat of any kind. Loved the ponytail too. Oh well that was then this is now. Hope things work out for him.

TMZ you freakin' idiots!!! It's not just Mexican's coming in illegally. You got all those South American countries with their illegals coming in through the Mexican/US border. You owe us Mexican/American's an apology for your racism. Harvey and you can't forgive Mel for his rant well you're not any better. I don't forgive you!
