DARTMOUTH — Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson will be at the White House in Washington D.C. on Monday for an event in which President Trump will honor law enforcement from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP).

The event, titled "The Salute to the Heroes of ICE and CBP," takes place at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 20. Sheriff Hodgson is among a group of seven or so sheriffs from around the country attending the event.

“ICE and CBP agents are on the front lines of law enforcement’s battle against criminal illegal aliens,” Sheriff Hodgson said. “I stand with President Trump, ICE, CBP and the rest of the law enforcement community on the local, state and federal levels in the effort to protect the public from these lawbreakers who entered the U.S. illegally and are committing crimes.”

Sheriff Hodgson is scheduled to meet with senior White House officials after the ceremony to discuss illegal immigration reforms.

The nation’s capital will be a familiar place for Sheriff Hodgson. He is scheduled to be back in September for an event on Capitol Hill with up to 50 sheriffs from coast to coast rallying for congressional action on illegal immigration reforms.
