“Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson rallied about 130 Sheriffs from across the country in an effort to increase communication between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and local law enforcement in communities from coast to coast.

In a recently sent letter to U.S. Sens. Ron Johnson, Rob Portman and Rick Scott, America’s Sheriffs urged them to introduce and pass federal legislation that would require DHS to notify local law enforcement if it will be placing illegal immigrants in their communities.
