Senator Jeff Sessions has a long history
President-elect Donald Trump just announced he’s nominating Senator Jeff Sessions to be the country’s attorney general.
We’re quite familiar with Senator Sessions. The ACLU and other civil rights organizations have consistently contested his positions on civil rights, LGBT rights, capital punishment, abortion rights, and presidential authority in times of war.
Not only that – Senator Sessions once called the ACLU “un-American and communist” for “trying to force civil rights down the throats of people.”
The attorney general is charged with protecting the rights of ALL Americans. Yet the President-elect’s nominee is a man who failed Senate confirmation for a judgeship under President Ronald Reagan because of Sessions’ stated positions on race.
That’s why a confirmation process should examine his policy record and all of his statements in order to determine if he is the one to enforce our laws and protect our Constitution.
Add your name to demand that Senator Sessions’ confirmation process include a comprehensive review of his voting record and history of statements.
