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."

Hello    

How is this guy going to try to block the border if he looks like a big a$$ Pancho himself. Better be careful or his own racism might come and kick him right back in the butt. He looks more mexican than a taco!

I support protecting our borders, but, not with a trigger happy action star who thinks he's in a movie fighting bad guys.

Mexicans? You jerks need to get your **** straight...not all immigrants crossing the border are "mexican". There are people from El Salvador, Guatemala, even China crossing over from Mexico you ignorants jerks. I was a big fan of TMZ but now you all can suck it easy.

Considering the amount of violence that's going on near the Mexican/U.S. border, Steven Seagal is "WAY OUT OF HIS LEAGUE". If he's not careful, he's going to end up a "CASUALTY" because he just put a "TARGET" on his "FAT AZZ" by making it publicly know he hanging around down there. Who is he going to call for backup when he's overwhelmed by drug smugglers??? They would have no problem kidnapping him for a large ransom or killing him to make a point. He's not dealing with the "make believe" world of film in which everything is scripted to make him look good. Instead, he should be "FUNDRAISING" to help "REAL" law enforcement agencies in this area purchase additional "surveillance" equipment to help make their border enforcement efforts more efficient. Mark my words, his actual presence is going to create more problems than it solves.

Wasn't he also a law enforcement officer in Louisiana recently? I couldn't help but snicker at the ridiculous fake drawl. God help us all when a publicity-seeking yahoo like this is carrying a real gun.
