Morrisey talks opioids, drug trafficking during Parkersburg visit


PARKERSBURG — West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey visited the Judge Black Annex on Monday to contribute to a roundtable discussion with local law enforcement officials pertaining to the opioid epidemic.

The conversation was precipitated in light of U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas’ Biden-era decision to terminate the Migrant Protection Protocols Program, which was implemented by former President Donald Trump and created stricter policies on illegal immigration.
