I've got an American flag hanging in my office, not the Mexican chicken-and-worm or whatever it is," Vasquez said in a swipe at the eagle-and-snake emblem on the Mexican flag. He has billed the Mexican government $2 million for reimbursement of jail and medical treatment costs he claimed the county provided to Mexican citizens. "We're being invaded by Mexicans -- they are the enemy, as far as I'm concerned," Vasquez told The Associated Press.
