Donald Trump’s cabinet appointments are slowly leaking out, with Jeff Sessions as Trump’s pick for attorney general. If confirmed, it will surely be a huge difference from what we’ve come to expect from the Obama administration. The time of refusing to prosecute illegal immigrants will come to an end.
Sessions is on record as saying that he will prosecute “sanctuary cities” that protect illegal immigrants. Earlier this year, the Justice Department’s inspector general announced that federal law requires local officials to cooperate with federal immigration agents. New rulings mean that Sessions can strip federal funding from sanctuary cities if they continue to harbor illegal immigrants.
The idea of Sessions as attorney general has struck fear into the heart of liberals everywhere, who have wasted no time overreacting, as usual. “The handful of people who might be even less equipped than Jeff Sessions to dispense justice on behalf of the American people typically spend their weekends wearing pointy hats and burning crosses,” said Charles Chamberlain, who heads up the liberal group Democracy for America. “The agency would become the dispenser of terror and racial intolerance should Jeff Sessions be confirmed,” Brent Wilkes claimed, who serves as executive director of the League of United Latin American Citizens.
Democrats are allegedly alreading preparing to do anything they can to fight his confirmation. And it won’t be the first time he’s had to fight: Democrats prevented him from being appointed as a federal district judge under President Ronald Reagan in 1986. But they couldn’t prevent him from running for Senate… and winning. And considering the massive victory for the GOP on election day, they may not be able to prevent him from becoming attorney general, either.LIKE our Facebook page: SourcesNews
