We have caught drug traffickers and human smugglers off guard and reduced crime in remote border regions.
That is why I ask you to fund a $100 million effort that will expand patrols, purchase new technology and protect the border from drug traffickers, human smugglers and other criminal thugs that seek to destroy our way of life.
The congressman said he was ticketed so often he had to spend a weekend in jail more than once. "I was out partying, just like you were or any other kid, and you'd get busted for a thing and you'd do a weekend in jail for a traffic violation," Stockman said. "So I may have been in jail a couple of times, two or three times." He said he could not remember exactly.
The Michigan Department of State keeps driver records only seven years, so Stockman's are no longer available. One of his jail weekends led to a drug charge. On Sept. 23, 1977, when Mr. Stockman was 20, he reported to the Madison Heights City Jail to serve two days. The records state that an officer "found, in doing a strip search, that Stockman had 3 Valium tablets 10mg each. Subject stated that his girlfriend had given them to him to take while serving his sentence." The charge was later dropped.
