BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – “During this time of uncertainty, what is certain is our resolve to protect the citizens of the Northern District of Alabama.  We continue to work closely with our federal, state and local partners to protect the public and ensure that mission-critical operations remain constant.  The Birmingham and Huntsville offices are open and our operations are in lockstep with guidance issued by the Office of Management and Budget, the Department of Justice, and the federal courts.  I am thankful for all of the dedicated public servants who are committed to ensure that the mission of the office is carried out at all times.  Members of law enforcement, first responders, and medical personnel continue to race the sunrise each day to keep us safe.  We should all be eternally grateful.”
