The Leader Call, 6/25/8

The high cost of gasoline, the nation’s energy situation and illegal immigrants were some of the issues U.S. Senator Roger Wicker discussed during his recent campaign stop in Jones County.

At one of Wicker’s stops, he visited veterans and their families at the Veterans Memorial Museum on Hillcrest Drive. Following a tour of the facility, Wicker talked about issues facing local residents and the nation.

Talking about energy, increased gas prices and illegal immigrants, Wicker said there’s much work to be done in the nation’s capital.

“I’m a strong opponent of illegal immigrants,” he said. “We’ve got to secure our borders.”
