Sheriffs Call For Congressional Action on Immigration
Alexandria, VA – Sheriffs from around the country sent a letter to all Members of Congress outlining the need for congressional action on securing America’s border. The letter, signed by over 310 sheriffs representing 40 states. was spearheaded by Sheriff Thomas Hodgson from Bristol County, Massachusetts.
“We’re calling on Congress to take action now, on the security issues at the border and against sanctuary policies in our states, cities and towns. These sanctuary policies directly undermine and limit cooperation and collaboration between local, state and federal law enforcement, making it harder for America’s sheriffs to protect our citizens and legal residents,” said Sheriff Hodgson.
