Sen. Jeff Sessions opposes Loretta Lynch; don’t expect AZ’s Sens. to show such spine
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, questioned Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch during Wednesday’s Judiciary hearing. Sessions asked Lynch about Barack Obama’s decision to bypass Congress to impose a sweeping amnesty —- and how this action undermined the rights of disadvantaged American workers.
Listen to Democrat Lynch’s declaration that “the right and the obligation to work is one that’s shared by everyone in this country, regardless of how they came here. And certainly, if someone is here —- regardless of status —- I would prefer that they would be participating in the workplace than not participating in the workplace.”
Sen. Sessions is well versed in the law. Beginning his career as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, he was nominated by President Reagan and confirmed by the Senate to serve as the U.S. Attorney for Alabama’s Southern District, a position he held for 12 years. Sessions was elected Alabama Attorney General in 1995, serving as the state’s chief legal officer until he entered the United States Senate.
Read his reason for opposing Loretta Lynch’s nomination.
Attempting to deflect negativity, Lynch said that if confirmed she would focus on combating terrorism and cybercrime and would protect the vulnerable from criminal predators. Would that include vulnerable American citizens who are displaced workers due to a flood of millions of illegals, now given the cover of amnesty, complete with legal status and Social Security numbers?
Don’t expect Arizona’s U.S. Sens. John McCain or Jeff Flake to emulate the far sharper Jeff Sessions when votes are cast on her nomination.
McCain, along with Jon Kyl, Flake’s predecessor, supported the nominations of every leftwing Democrat to come down the pike —- including Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano (voice vote), and Hillary Clinton. The duo voted to confirm Obama nominee Mary Murguia as another liberal judge on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Murguia’s twin sister Janet is the President and CEO of the National Council of La Raza — “The Race” — a group whose two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all: “For the Race everything. Outside the Race, nothing.”
RINOs McCain and Kyl also stepped front and center voting in support of the nomination of Andrew Hurwitz, a politically connected leftist Democrat —- then an AZ Supreme Court Justice —- aiding his ascent to the already radical 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The Arizona República was so thrilled, it editorially gushed over retiring Kyl, calling him a “statesman.”
Expect nothing less from Flake and his McMentor. Our bet is they will vote in support of Loretta Lynch’s confirmation.
