(CNSNews.com) – The National Sheriffs’ Association on Wednesday named Arizona’s Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu  “Sheriff of the Year.” On Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano delivered the first State of Homeland Security address, in which she gave an upbeat account of the agency’s accomplishments, including its efforts on immigration and securing the U.S. border.

Babeu, however, indicated that Napolitano’s speech was selective in what it emphasized and what it did not disclose.

“2010 was a historic year when it comes to securing and managing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws,” Napolitano said. [2] “There are now more resources on the southwest border in terms of personnel, technology, and infrastructure than ever before in American history. And we continue to see progress on every metric.”

Babeu said Napolitano’s claim was “not surprising.” But he also said her remarks did not reflect conditions on the ground in Arizona where in the last two years the amount of illegal drugs entering the state that have been confiscated by local authorities has doubled, and the number of pursuits of criminal illegal aliens has tripled.

“Why isn’t the secretary of homeland security speaking to these threats?” Babeu said in a telephone interview with CNSNews.com. “Why does she keep trying to convince us through argument that everything is just fine to the point that she’s trying to hypnotize us into believing this c–p.”

The National Sheriffs’ Association cited in its press release that Babeu “has earned both statewide and national attention for his strong stance against illegal immigration.”
