Today the United States Senate is holding hearings on the nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions to become the next Attorney General of The United States.
Senator Sessions is the wrong person to be the Attorney General of the United States for the following reasons
- He is a threat to Property Rights. Senator Sessions is one of the leading advocates of asset forfeiture, which is a law enforcement practice of seizing suspects’ property even though they have not been charged or convicted of any crime.
- Senator Sessions has tried to stop all attempts of immigration reform and makes no secret of the fact that he is for stopping all LEGAL immigration to the United States.
- Senator Sessions is no friend of civil liberties. In his 1986 confirmation hearings for a Federal Judge, Senator Sessions said that the ACLU and the NAACP are “un-American” when “they involve themselves in promoting un-American positions” in foreign policy. He also called The Voting Rights Act of 1965 a “piece of intrusive legislation”.
Senator Jeff Sessions is not somebody who should be the nation’s top law enforcement officer. Please contact our Georgia Senators today and tell them to vote against Jeff Sessions for Attorney General of the United States. Their contact information is listed below.
