U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions visited with constituents in west Alabama Monday, including a stop at Larkin's Restaurant and Deli in York.
Sessions addressed issues on the national level, such as immigration reform and healthcare and how they affect west Alabama.
He also talked about several issues that affected the local economy.
Sessions says he thinks the federal government is not doing enough to get jobs in rural areas.
"Our government in Washington has to create an economic climate that produces growth and job creation," said Sessions. "And we've not done a good job of that. In fact, a lot of things that we are doing are hurting job growth.
Sessions also made stops in Butler and Demopolis as part of his day-long trip through west Alabama.
