FARMERVILLE — National issues took the forefront of U.S. Sen. David Vitter’s, R-La., town hall meeting in Farmerville Thursday.
Dozens of residents packed the Union Parish Police Jury meeting room to hear the senator in his first visit to the parish since winning the 2004 senate election. Vitter started the town hall forum with brief speeches on hot button issues, including job creation, prescription drug coverage and immigration.
Quickly, the topic of immigration, especially as it relates to Mexico, took the forefront.
