Gov Hutchinson Honored By Border Patrol in Washington, D.C.
“This is a great honor, and it’s especially meaningful to me because I was privileged to help protect this great country after the 9/11 attacks,” said Hutchinson. “I want to recognize my incredible colleagues who were with me in the early days at Homeland Security. Those were trying times when we were working to create a new federal agency under stressful and dangerous circumstances. It speaks to the character and ability of many dedicated Americans that we got it done.”
