DOUG MCLINKO STATEMENT ON BARLETTA OP-ED
“I wholeheartedly join Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) in calling on the Trump Administration to incorporate schools as critical infrastructure under the guidance of the Department of Homeland Security. Our children are our most precious assets and we must protect them at all costs.
Much like government buildings in Washington, D.C., our County Courthouse is hardened to ensure that no one enters with any weapons. Yet, even after the tragedy in South Florida, our schools, and our children, still remain soft targets. I am appreciative of the leadership Rep. Barletta has shown on this issue, and call on President Trump to put equal, if not greater value, on securing our schools.”
