President Donald Trump offered full-throated praise for Congressman Lou Barletta and his bid for the U.S. Senate while the president was in Pennsylvania on Wednesday for a speech on reform.
“You have a good one running, Lou!,” said Trump.
He previously served as mayor of Hazelton, Pennsylvania, during which time he himself took decisive action against illegal immigration.
As mayor Barletta pursued action against businesses that hired illegal workers and landlords who rented to illegal aliens.
“He caught my attention immediately when he highlighted illegal immigration and the open Southern border,” said Barletta upon his endorsement of Trump according to the Washington Post.
