Senators volunteered at a law enforcement appreciation dinner for state, local, and federal law enforcement officers
EL PASO – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema led a bipartisan group of colleagues in celebrating and serving law enforcement officers at a law enforcement appreciation dinner yesterday on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.
“Our brave law enforcement officers put their lives on the line – day in and day out – to keep our families and communities safe, and I join all Arizonans in expressing our profound appreciation for their service,” said Sinema, Chair of the Border Management Subcommittee and leader of the bipartisan delegation.
The bipartisan group of Senators – including Senators Sinema, John Cornyn (R-Texas), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Chris Coons (D-Del.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) – served food to and ate with state, local, and federal law enforcement officers in honor of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, which is celebrated annually on January 9th.
The dinner comes as Sinema leads a bipartisan Congressional Delegation to the Southwest border to show her colleagues the ongoing humanitarian and security crisis firsthand. Late last year, Sinema vowed to continue her work finding a path forward on a comprehensive plan to secure the border and ensure the humane treatment of migrants in the new year by bringing a group of committed Senators to the Southwest border.
