Austin, TX — Right now, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is in Texas to discuss President Donald Trump’s disastrous immigration priorities. [Austin American-Statesman, October 20, 2017]
- 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…”
Texas Democratic Party Deputy Executive Director Manny Garcia issued the following statement:
“Did Sessions and Paxton secretly conspire to bring down DACA and upend the lives of 800,000 young people?
“It’s clear, Trump’s deportation force agenda is in motion and Texas Republicans are complicit. Trump and Texas Republicans are peddling economically-inept and nativist immigration policies that have no place in our great country.”
- 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.
