Senator David Perdue Stands With Heroes Of ICE & Border Patrol At White House

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) participated in a panel discussion at the White House about the critical role U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) play in our national security. Following the panel, Senator Perdue joined President Trump, Vice President Pence, and Secretary of Homeland Security Nielsen in saluting ICE and CBP officers.

Highlights

Standing With ICE: “When an elected official says they want to get rid of ICE or the CBP, I think they’ve failed their oath of office. It’s unconscionable and frankly, I think it’s downright unpatriotic.”

Highly Regarded: “The men and women of ICE and CBP have had a pretty rough road the past six weeks. I think this is totally inappropriate. I just want everyone in those two organizations to know how highly thought of they are by most people in America and the U.S. Senate.”

Fighting For All Americans: “I’ve been a part of some large private organizations before getting into this job. I’ve always learned that it’s about the tone at the top. President Trump has demonstrated that he’s here fighting for ordinary Americans.”
