Culberson Urges AG Sessions to Fight Human Trafficking
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative John Culberson (TX-07), Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science (CJS), chaired a hearing focused on the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) fiscal year 2019 budget request. Rep. Culberson pressed U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on his efforts to increase investigations into terrorism and prosecutions of opioid dealers, fight drug and human trafficking, and enforce immigration laws.
Following the hearing, Rep. Culberson issued the following statement.
“I’m proud of the work my Subcommittee has done to support the Department of Justice’s efforts to reduce the number of people who fall victim to drug and human traffickers, terrorists, and violent criminals.
“I urge Attorney General Jeff Sessions to enforce existing law. Cities that receive our hard-earned tax dollars must follow federal immigration laws, and any sanctuary cities must not receive federal law enforcement grants.
“My Subcommittee will ensure that federal, state, and local law enforcement officers have the necessary resources to protect our communities and our country.”
