Border bandits in far West Texas may want to brush up on their martial arts and film presence now that action film star Steven Seagal is coming to town.

Seagal, 59, was sworn in this week as the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office newest deputy. The sheriff’s office said he’ll be working full time to help secure the U.S.-Mexico border.

Seagal called the department himself about two months ago asking for the job.

“It became very clear to me that Mr. Seagal is not in this for the celebrity or the publicity,” Sheriff Arvin West said. “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.”

    mis mejores deseo y los mayores exitos para, antes que nada como persona,a un inconparable actor y buen oficial… congratulaciones!!!!!

  • I have known about Mr Seagal before he ever started in movies.I have an old Black Belt magazine with him in Japan training/teaching Akido.He is also a good shot acording to another article in a gun magazine in the 90’s.He does have law enforcement background,hell,mabey he will put the fear of god in them..As far as his movies,I don’t think he writes the scripts,writers do to appeal to a broad audience to make money.I think he will do a fine job.He could’t do worse.

    Seagal? Help control the border?Are you guys that gullible? Stephen Seagal starred in the sucky movie MACHETE,a movie that pictured illegal Mexicans as a persecuted class and “minutemen” as racist killer expect this guy to enforce the immigration laws? That’s why he’s an actor.He pretends to be for soMething,when he is for the opposite.Kind of like the PATRIOT ACT,it did the opposite,it curtailed freedom.wake up you guys and stop worshipping a guy cause he’s a movie star/martial arts guy.That’s why Obama is president,lots of ignorant people.
