U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-La.) today released the following statement upon President-elect Donald Trump's selection of Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to be Attorney General of the United States. Vitter and Sessions have served together as members of the Senate Judiciary Committee since 2015, and previously served together as members of the Senate Armed Services Committee from 2010-2015.

"I've worked closely with Jeff for years fighting to secure our borders, stop amnesty, and enforce our nation's immigration laws," said Vitter. "Jeff has a very sharp legal mind, and I'm extremely confident that as Attorney General, he'll be a strong advocate for common sense policies that uphold our nation's laws and serve the American people."
