Jenny Beth’s Journal: Those who know AG Sessions should not mistake his kindness for weakness
In her latest column, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the nicest man in Washington but people shouldn’t mistake his niceness for weakness. In the six months that President Trump has been in office, Sessions has covered a lot ground across a wide front to implement Trump’s agenda.
First, Sessions is overseeing the defense of the president’s executive order directing the temporary suspension of immigration from certain countries — a defense that succeeded in getting the Supreme Court to overturn a lower court ruling blocking implementation of the order.
Second, Sessions has informed leaders of so-called “sanctuary cities” that their continued refusal to abide by the law and cooperate with federal law enforcement authorities puts at risk their access to federal grants.
Third, Sessions has stepped up enforcement of laws against illegal immigration and has helped draw attention to a new attitude toward illegal immigration, which is helping achieve a significant reduction in illegal immigration over the first months of the Trump administration.
From immigration enforcement to helping with the nomination and confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, Sessions has achieved a lot in the first year of a new administration and his achievements shouldn’t go unnoticed!
