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."

My hat is off to this incredible man, as famouse and popular as he is, he is still willing to put his own life in harms way to protect and serve. Way to go Mr. Seagal. have been a fan of this man for a long time and continue to look at him with amazement and with the upmost respect that he DESERVES!!!!! He still looks good too, a few extra pounds just makes him look more distinguished. MUAH love ya Steven Seagal

Why are people down on Steven Seagal? He's just signed on to be a border sheriff. He didn't say anything about catching Mexicans crossing the border. You can bet that was a TMZ writer that threw that little tidbit in there out of sheer ignorance!

Hope there aren't any foot chases with those two porkers! And WTH, Seagal with a real weapon???? Holy crap, he'll shoot himself in the foot. Ugh.

Good thing he didn't want any celebrity or publicity from this. LoL Take those pix! I'd like the borders secured too, so if they could line up enough fat boys, they could be the wall!

Since when did El Paso,TX change counties? Steven Seagal was sworn in, in Hudspeth County not El Paso County.

On your show your reporters said that Seven Seagal was sworn in as a Sherrif in El Paso,TX. NOT TRUE!!!! It was in Hudspeth County not El Paso County.

You can distract these two by throwing a couple of donuts in the opposite direction and you're home free - temporarily that is.
