- Last month, Sessions announced the end of the DACA program, a policy enacted by the Obama administration that allowed immigrant youth who came to the U.S. as children to remain in the country without fear of deportation.
- This week, when questioned by the Senate Judiciary Committee, “Sessions did not answer but would not deny that he had coordinated with Texas Attorney General Paxton prior to the DACA decision, falsely claiming that any such discussions would be privileged…”
- The Trump Administration was recently caught spying on the actions of Texas Democratic elected officials on immigration.
- Fortunately, America’s Voice has filed a Freedom of Information Request on Sessions’s collusion with Texas Republicans.
