What they’re saying about Jeff Sessions

July 20, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Attorney General Jeff Sessions has led the effort to restore the rule of law in the United States. He has received wide praise for his actions to protect law enforcement, remove illegal immigrant criminals, strengthen our borders, and lead his office with moral integrity; here is a compilation of praise he has received since taking office:

“Jeff Sessions is the best Attorney General President Trump could have. He is doing the difficult job of unwinding the politicized mess left behind by his Obama appointed predecessors.  Rather than turning a blind eye, Attorney General Sessions is cracking down on illegal immigration, deporting MS-13 gang members and other illegal alien criminals, and ending the war on police,” Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning, July 20, 2017.

“This [National Police Week] is also a time to give thanks for the colleagues, citizens, and public officials who have our backs when things get tough and dangerous. Today, we are here to honor one of these public servants, Attorney General Jeff Sessions. We live in a time when politicians and the top brass in police departments do not always have the courage to put the interests of innocent citizens and officer safety ahead of political correctness and calculated reelection ploys. This is why we are so grateful to have an attorney general who rejects such cynical behavior… Attorney General Sessions, on behalf of the men and women of the Sergeants Benevolent Association of New York City, it is my privilege to bestow on you an honorary membership in our union in recognition of your commitment to doing what is right for the safety of our communities and for having the backs of rank and file law enforcement officers in New York City and across this nation,” President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association of New York City, Police Sgt. Edward Mullins Jr. said, May 12, 2017.

“The fact that we’ve had these vicious murders and within days of my talking to the Attorney General he agreed to come here, to me, shows the full strength of the federal government to eradicate MS-13. They should be on their knees thanking [Attorney General Jeff Sessions], not out there protesting,” Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said of protestors at a New York event Attorney General on April 28, 2017.

“.@realDonaldTrump should stand by AG Sessions. He’s the only one making good on campaign promise for immigration in the nat’l interest!” NumbersUSA, July 20, 2017 on Twitter.

“Sessions is doing a fantastic job when it comes to #electionlaw @TheJusticeDept,” J. Christian Adams, a member of the President’s Election Integrity Commission, July 20, 2017 on Twitter.

“The Department of Justice, under the capable leadership of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has made the right call in backing the rule of law in Texas. I am committed to working with the entire Trump administration to protect American communities and reaffirm that the United States is a nation of laws,” Sen. Luther Strange, R-Ala., June 23, 2017.

“The criminal law has the bottom-line purpose of protecting the public’s safety. In seeking fair, equal, and fully disclosed justice, Attorney General Sessions is trying to reestablish the distinction between the criminal law and other social policies,” Retired Federal Prosecutor, Thomas Ascik, June 1, 2017.

“Attorney General Sessions has repeatedly said that he would recuse himself from cases as appropriate, and today he has done so. Although not legally mandated, this decision puts the issue behind him and ensures that the department’s law enforcement will be free from even the appearance of impropriety,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

“Thank goodness for Jeff Sessions. He is a man of the highest integrity and honesty. The American people heard the truth today,” Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) said, following Session testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, June 23, 2017.
