·       Recall-Of-Cochise Sheriff-Mark Dannels-Threatened  (Audio)  Ranchers upset: A week ago, the Cochise County Board of Supervisors approved deputizing Border Patrol agents by Cochise County Sheriff  -- stirring  up an outcry from ranchers.  Two days ago Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels rescinded his Supervisors’ approved recommendation.  See Dannels letter below (dated July 25, 2013).
·       Sheriff Dannels Rescinds Provisional Cross-Certification:  Greetings to my fellow citizens. It has been brought to my attention that some have found great difficulty in the provisional cross-certification granted to our recently delegated Border Patrol agents assigned to our Regional Border Team.   In contrast, others have expressed their support regarding this action.
After meeting with those for and against, it appears a division within the ranching community has been created. 
As I have expressed to you, the primary purpose of the regional border team is to enhance your quality of life and provide you some relief with issues that are directly related to the border. 
After meeting with leadership and members of the Regional Border Team, it was agreed upon that it is best to not divide our ranching community over this issue, but embrace our Regional Border Team’s mission that serves to enhance our ranching community.  As of this time, the provisional cross-certification to our Border Patrol Agents assigned to this team has been rescinded.   
The Regional Border Team will continue in partnership utilizing our expertise and resources to help bring awareness and enforcement to those that consciously choose to violate our freedoms and liberties.  
As a member of the Southwest Border Sheriffs, Western Border Sheriffs, National Sheriffs Association, Border Security Committee, the Alliance to Combat Transnational Threats, and your Sheriff, I will continue to be a voice regarding our border issues.   - Mark Dannels – Cochise County Sheriff
