Jeff Sessions Nomination for US Attorney General Official
President Elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Senator Jeff B. Sessions (R-AL) for US Attorney General was made official Friday.
The 4th U.S. senator since World War II to be appointed attorney general, Jeff Sessions, 69 anni, is expected to have a non-contentious confirmation hearing.
Because of his background as a former Alabama state Attorney General and US Attorney, and his loyalty to Donald Trump, the nomination a natural for the President Elect.
Jeff Sessions was the 1st US Senator to endorse Donald Trump for President and was a close adviser to the him throughout the 2016 campaign on issues ranging from illegal immigration to Supreme Court appointees.
Because of his close relationship to Donald Trump, Senator Sessions is likely to take a strong advisory role with the new president on many Key government issues.
Donald Trump’s top law enforcement agent, is expected to take a hard-line stance in the fight against illegal immigration and serve as a major departure from the status quo of the Obama Administration, according to three former Republican Attorneys General.
“I think it’s pretty clear that this president-elect is interested in the enforcement of laws relating to immigration and to people who are in the country illegally,” said John Ashcroft, who served as Attorney General under President George W. Bush (43).
“My guess is that Mr. Sessions will bring some change in that area.”
Expect Jeff Sessions to constrict the US Justice Department’s current stance on certain civil rights issues.
“I think there were a number of onerous actions regarding civil rights, and those will be changed,” said Edwin Meese III, a former Attorney General during the Reagan Administration. “I would say that there will be major, major changes in practice after this administration went so far to the left.”
Law and Order is coming back to the government.
Have a terrific weekend
