How to use county in a sentence?

  1. John Carter:

    It is outrageous that this administration would even consider using our military installations to shelter illegal immigrants who have crossed our southern border, president Obama needs to enforce our immigration laws and secure our border, not undermine our military at a time when our country is facing increased threats from radical Islamic terrorists. Last year, amid a surge of unaccompanied children streaming in from Central America, the Pentagon began housing thousands of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, in Texas, Naval Base Ventura County, in California, and at Fort Sill, in Oklahoma. More than 10,000 unaccompanied minor children have streamed into United States over the Mexican border since October 1, the result of unchecked corruption and gang violence in their Central American homelands, and an effort by Mexican drug cartels to diversify into the very lucrative migrant smuggling business. The Department of Health and Human Service's Office of Refugee Relocation is required to take control of unaccompanied children once they enter the U.S., and the agency is once again being stretched to the limit by a surge that has reached an estimated 10,000 since October. In a statement, Fort Hood spokesman Tony Rheinlander said it is n’t even up to the Pentagon whether or not Fort Hood is used.

  2. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie:

    The impending weather conditions constitute an imminent hazard, which threatens and presently endangers the health, safety, and resources of the residents of Ocean County, Atlantic County and Cape May County.

  3. Shevrin Jones:

    There has to be a better way in how we are administrating when it comes to the election process, especially now, we are 48 hours after the election and we are in a total cluster mess-up. It's unfortunate that we are in this situation again -- Broward County is the laughingstock of the country.

  4. Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval:

    Details from the incident last night in Panaca are still emerging, but I am fully committed to helping assist the victims, residents and Lincoln County community as they respond to this shocking event.

  5. Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood:

    This has shaken my staff to the core, that little girl had been subjected to the most unspeakable measure of torture for an extended period of time. This is child abuse, the likes of which we haven't experienced here (in Plumas County).
