(National Sentinel) Stepping Up: When it comes to reporting on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the news usually isn’t good. We’re never going to be satisfied with his reasons for recusing himself from all things “Russia” and the 2016 Trump campaign because we know there’s nothing there and, thus, no recusal was necessary.
That said, we have to give AG Sessions credit where it’s due.
When it comes to his efforts to curb illegal immigration, stamp out sanctuary cities, and implement immigration policies beneficial to the United States, he’s been a champion for the administration and for all Americans (even those who disagree with him).
On Monday Sessions closed another very large loophole that foreigners use to game our system: Claims of asylum based on “gang violence” or “domestic violence.” Those are no longer going to be qualifiers.
Sessions made his announcement at an annual three-day conference of the Executive Officer for Immigration Review (EOIR) in Virginia.
In a speech to immigration judges Monday, Sessions informed them, “It will be your duty to carry out this ruling.”
“Asylum was never meant to alleviate all problems, even all serious problems, that people face every day all over the world,” he added, noting further that Americans who supported POTUS Trump in 2016 did so, in large part, because of his vow to secure the border and enforce all immigration laws.
“Let’s be clear: We have a goal. And that goal is to end the lawlessness that now exists in our immigration system. The American people have spoken,” he said.
“They have spoken in our laws and they have spoken in our elections. They want a safe, secure border and a lawful system of immigration that actually works and serves the national interest. Thank you for what you do, let’s deliver this for the American people,” he added.
Asylum applications skyrocketed under the Obama administration thanks to 44’s ridiculously lax immigration policies which included the unconstitutional DACA program.
Sessions is right to do this. There is “domestic violence” and/or “gang violence” in every country on the planet, including the United States. In fact, in some cities like Chicago, Detroit, and St. Louis, you could even argue that violence is worse here than in some places were migrants are coming from.
