No one can shut up a voice

Por sumily

Qualified as a conservative politician and advocate of anti-immigrant policies, Sessions served as Attorney General of the Southwest District of Alabama between 1981 and 1994. President Ronald Reagan, in 1986, nominated him to the position of Judge of the Southwest District of Alabama, with his candidacy being challenged by the Senate Judiciary Committee as a result of his racist comments.

He was Alabama's Attorney General in 1995, a position he held until January 1997 when, after winning the election, he became a Senator from Alabama. He has been reelected four times in a row.US President-elect Donald Trump, in November 2016, nominated him to the position of Attorney General of the United States. Nomination that was frowned upon by several politicians, media and civil rights organizations for their positions towards minorities as well as for their anti-immigrant stance.

Jeff Sessions, US Attorney General, compared the laws of California to protect the undocumented with the rebellion of the Southern states against the Union that gave rise to the Civil War.According to rough estimates, a quarter of the more than 11 million undocumented immigrants from the United States live in California, the most populous state in the country, where they are considered essential for the economy and coexistence in general.

All California offices are Democratic, so the State was involved from the beginning of the Trump Administration to combat the president's policies to the limit its jurisdiction and benefiting from any loophole in the constitutional balance between federal and state powers. The Department of Justice, for its part, has taken the decision to enter the fight, but this time striking first and does so with a complaint of unconstitutionality that could become a definitive case on immigration laws.

The complaint states that the three laws passed by California last year are unconstitutional because they contradict the "supremacy" of federal laws. The one that has made the most noise in Washington, the so-called sanctuary state law SB54, which prohibits all California security forces from collaborating with the immigration police except by court order and in cases of serious crimes.T

he attorney general then placed the legal dispute between the states and Washington in the most sensitive terms possible. Although we all have diverse opinions about immigration, the law is in the books and its purpose is clear. There is no cancellation.

The governor, Jerry Brown, and the attorney general, Xavier Becerra, directly appointed as responsible in Sessions 'complaint, did not go unpunished with Sessions' pronouncements. They offered a joint press conference minutes later. Becerra exhorted the constitutionality of the laws of California and that there is nothing in them that prevents the immigration police from doing their job.Brown, meanwhile, counterattacked in the toughest possible terms, and also in his usual jocular style when referring to the Trump Administration. He also accused the attorney general of sounding more like Fox News than an agent of the law. For Governor Brown, Sessions' attitude is basically a declaration of war against the State of California, the engine of the US economy.
