BATON ROUGE, La (LOCAL 33) - In response to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking all Obama-appointed federal attorneys to tender a resignation, as well as U.S. attorney for Louisiana's Middle District Walt Green resigning, East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore composed a letter to President Trump to express support for Green.

"Our letter is a historic first and unanimous expression of support for a remarkable man who easily navigates different political ideologies without controversy and has a demonstrated recors of working with all of us to drive violent crime from our jurisdictions...As local law enforcement officials, we have found him always accessible and often with us, shoulder-to-shoulder, on the front line against violent crime..."

The letter goes on to ask that Green's resignation not be accepted, and is signed by law enforcement across the middle district.

Signatures includes all elected Sheriffs in nine middle district parishes; the police chiefs of Baton Rouge, Gonzales, Maringouin, Central, Zachary, Brusly, Plaquemine, Grosse Tete, Rosedalem St. Gabriel, Denham Springs, and St. Francisville; as well as the district attorneys of eight parishes; LSP Col.
