We all thought that Seagal is doing something for a TV show or a movie when we heard that he was given the authority to Patrol the borders between the United States and Mexico, turns out he’s actually a legitimate deputy now and has taken it upon himself to protect America’s borders from Illegal
aliens visitors. E! Newsreports:
According to the San Antonio Express, the Above the Law star called the department two months ago to lobby for the job—and not because he was in search of new storylines. After being sworn in this week, he will now join a contingent of deputies patrolling 98 miles of border and 5,500 square miles on the lookout for illegal border crossings.
“It became very clear to me that Mr. Seagal is not in this for the celebrity or the publicity,” Sheriff Arvin West told the paper. “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.”
