Jeff Sessions Unfit to be United States Attorney General

Reasons Jeff Sessions Unfit Be Attorney General

  • Will not stand up for people who’s been victimized by the Police
  • Is against legalizing marijuana and is continuing failed “War on Drugs” policies
  • Supports harsh sentences and Mandatory Minimum sentences
  • Supports the death penalty
  • Supports civil forfeiture and nonviolent drug prosecutions
  • Has made Racist Comments
  • Attacks on Civil Rights Groups
  • Voting Rights Act Opposition
  • Anti-Immigrant Extremism
  • Climate Change Denier
  • LGBT Rights Opposition
  • Has LIED to the American people on numerous occasions

 

The “Tough on Crime” and “War on Drugs” policies have been a disastrous failure yet Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Republicans want to continue and expand on this failure.

By directing his federal prosecutors to charge drug crime defendants with the most serious, provable crimes carrying the most severe penalties, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is moving us backwards as a society.

This is yet another horrible consequence of Trump being elected President and Republicans gaining control of the US government.

This is another example of how Republicans pursue stupid policies which don’t work and how they pursue policies which are contrary to the will of the American people.

57 percent of Americans supported legalizing marijuana in 2016 compared to just 52 percent of the country in 2014. Support for legal cannabis has been steadily increasing among Americans since 2006 when it reached 35 percent.

Although support for legalizing medical and adult use of pot has differed over the years among political affiliations, in 2016, 63 percent of Democratic voters and 63 percent of independent voters said they “think marijuana should be legal.” Although just 40 percent of Republicans backed legalizing marijuana—up just one percent from 2014’s 39 percent—support for the plant has continued to increase among the party since its lowest number, 12 percent, in 1990.

Until and unless “Average Joe” Americans stop voting for Republicans, our Justice System will remain broken and Republicans will make sure more people are incarcerated than any other country on this planet.

 

 

Most of the criticism of Trump Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions has focused on his lifetime of racist statements and actions.  But that’s just a part of the Sessions story, and we also need to be concerned about the fact that Sessions is fervently anti-worker, anti-union, and anti-consumer, siding with corporations whenever possible
