ATLANTA—U.S. Representative Doug Collins (R-Ga.), U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-Ga.), and Governor Brian Kemp (R-Ga.) today joined Vice President Mike Pence at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Atlanta Field Office to receive a briefing about the work of local ICE agents and the broader mission of border security. 

“President Trump and Vice President Pence’s commitment to securing our border and protecting our citizens remains unwavering, and I want to thank the vice president for traveling to Georgia to hear from the hardworking men and women serving in federal law enforcement. I look forward to continue working alongside this administration to strengthen our national security at home and abroad,” said Representative Collins. 

“I'm here on behalf of the President of the United States to say to the men and women of Immigration and Customs Enforcement here in Atlanta, Georgia: We are grateful for you, we are standing with you, and we will keep standing with you as you enforce our laws and keep our communities safe,” said Vice President Mike Pence. 

“It was an honor to have Vice President Pence in Georgia today to hear directly from the brave men and women who wear the ICE uniform,” said Senator Perdue. “ICE is a critical component of our country’s national security strategy. Our ICE law enforcement officers dedicate their lives to combating human trafficking, protecting communities, and keeping drugs off the street. President Trump and Vice President Pence have taken action to make sure ICE officers have the resources they need to keep Georgians and Americans safe. To all of our law enforcement officers – we’ve got your backs.” 

“It was an honor to welcome Vice President Pence to Georgia with Senator Perdue and Congressman Collins to talk about how we keep Georgia families – and all Americans – safe,” said Governor Brian Kemp.
