Jeff Sessions

Who else?

I see the Drudge Report with its usual laser-like precision has got to the point with the headline: Lynch: Illegals have “right’ to work in USA. The link is to the video of Alabama's Senator Jeff Sessions getting this stupid woman to say this.

Of course it is illegal for illegals to take jobs from Americans.

Brenda Walker picked this up too

SENATOR SESSIONS: Let me ask you this: In the workplace America today, when we have a high number of unemployed, we’ve had declining wages for many years, we have the lowest percentage of Americans working. Who has more right to a job in this country? A lawful immigrant who is here, a green card holder, a citizen, or a person who has entered the country unlawfully?

NOMINEE LYNCH: Senator, I believe the right and the obligation to work is one that is shared by everyone in this country, regardless of how they came here.

That is the Smoking gun.

I very strongly commend Senator Sessions’ statement

At the outset of this nomination process, I said that no Senator should vote to confirm anyone for this position—the top law enforcement job in America—who supported the President’s unlawful actions. Congress must defend its constitutional role, which is clearly threatened.

Unfortunately, when asked today whether she found the President’s actions to be ‘legal and constitutional,’ Ms. Lynch said that she did. I therefore am unable to support her nomination.

My concerns are furthered by Ms. Lynch’s unambiguous 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. …

Such a notion of civil rights is..‘incoherent and ahistorical.’ Essential to civil rights is the equal and uniform application of the laws. When the President capriciously suspends those laws and provides benefits to people here unlawfully, he injures the rights of lawful workers—denying them the protections Congress passed to secure their jobs and wages.

No one like Jeff Sessions – the Champion of the Nation
