WASHINGTON – Today on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) congratulated the new U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Texas, Susan Pamerleau. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s floor remarks are below, and video can be found here.

“While I was in San Antonio, my hometown, a couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to congratulate our new U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Texas, Susan Pamerleau.”

“Over the years she's held many impressive titles: General in the Air Force, Sheriff, and now she's United States Marshal. In addition to each of those, I’ve always been proud to know her under a different title, as a friend.”

“At Susan's ceremonial swearing-in, Chief Judge Orlando Garcia opened by noting the historical significance of her being the first female marshal ever in the Western District of Texas, which was established in 1857.”

“Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work with her on a number of issues impacting…our constituents including mental health and law enforcement reforms, and I think she's made an enormous contribution to both of those areas.”

“Her integrity, leadership, and management skills are critical to the Western District, which comprises 68 counties and more than six million people. So I’d like to once again congratulate my dear friend Susan Pamerleau on becoming the U.S. Marshal, and I look forward to continuing to work with her as we serve together the people of Texas.”
