Congressman Thompson Recognizes Mississippian for Aiding Children at the Border

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Representative Bennie G. Thompson (MS-02) recognizes New Orleans Saints linebacker and Collins, Miss. native, Demario Davis, for his service of preparing and distributing care packages to families affected by the Trump administration’s ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy.

“It is good to hear Mississippians are working to combat the discriminatory policy enacted by Trump designed to separate children from their mothers and fathers,” Thompson said. “Demario is a perfect example of how Mississippians are always willing to put themselves in places to help. I thank him and all other Mississippians who have assisted separated families.”

Congressman Thompson visited the South Texas Border facilities near Brownsville Texas last week.
