Read up on these issues, because its part of the methodical shredding not only of our constitution, but also the intent of our founding fathers.
Its only April 2017, but I think I can already nominate Attorney-General Jefferson B. Sessions, II, as “Bully of the Year”. Instead of prosecuting drug traffickers, human traffickers, and all manner of really “bad hombres”, as his “so-called president” boss likes to call them, Jeff has levelled the might of the Federal government against defenseless men, women and children. Jeff wants the Federal prosecutors to make it a priority to prosecute aliens who are illegally – or legally – in the USA for a variety of offenses including illegal entry or reentry. No matter that these individuals may be fleeing persecution, or gang violence, or political turmoil. No, that doesn’t matter in Jeff’s world. Its easier (and looks better in the headlines for the base) to show deportation numbers.
Not only that, Jeff and DHS Secretary John Kelly have defended the ICE practice of arresting aliens who are reporting to state or city courts for arraignments or to testify. So – instead of allowing aliens to comply with the rule of law, to give them or their victims a day in court, or to allow them to testify against the really “bad hombres”, Jeff would rather seize them at the courthouse door. That does a LOT for public safety and morale. So – individuals who commit crimes against undocumented (or even documented) aliens can sleep easy knowing Jeff is on their side! All that the US-Citizen perpetrator has to do is call ICE who will obligingly come and pick up the alien accuser-victim before the alien has a chance to testify against the criminal! What a great system. Yep, Jeff and Trump – go “Make America Great Again!”
So, it is without hesitation, that I nominate Jefferson B. Sessions II – “Bully of the Year”!
