Marshall talks immigration, trafficking at White House event

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall participated in a select White House discussion panel Monday and spoke about challenges facing states with immigration policy and enforcement.

It was part of a special White House event to honor federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Those agencies and their officers have been under increased scrutiny and political attacks from the left, with even some high-level democratic lawmakers calling for their abolishment.

Each emphasized how securing the nation’s borders was a matter of national security, not just to prevent illegal criminal immigrants from possibly inflicting violence in America but to also stop the flow of illegal drugs from entering the country as well.
