Jeff Sessions' fingerprints are all over Donald Trump's refugee and Muslim ban. Throughout the Presidential election, President Trump's nominee for Attorney General told ABC News:
"So I don't think Trump has gone too far. He said 'he should have a temporary ban on entry of people into the country from the Muslim world,' but that's because we have an ineffective screening process... so I think we're moving in the right direction."This demonstration of Sessions' nativist ideals make him wholly unfit for to be Attorney General. Call 888-704-9446 right now and tell the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote NO on Jeff Sessions tomorrow.
Sessions has a long and troubling record as an extremist on race, human rights and voting against protections for women and immigrants. If confirmed, here are just a few of the ways Sessions could attack immigrant communities as Attorney General:
- Reduce access to legal counsel and information about immigrants' legal rights.
- Impose nativist and anti-immigrant ideology on decisions by the federal immigration courts.
- Coerce local and state officials to comply with pro-deportation policies, in effect punishing sanctuary cities for aiding immigrants in need.
Senator Sessions would not treat our communities fairly nor justly. We must stand in firm opposition to his nomination, and call on our Senators to do the same.
