Sessions Shuts Down Durbin's Immigration Trolling: 'I'm Going to Follow The Laws Passed By Congress'
Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions told the Senate Tuesday morning that voters believe immigration policy should prioritize the needs of American workers. -- Sessions' remark came when Democratic Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin claimed Sessions would not support a “humane” rewrite of the nation's immigration law. “There's not a spot of evidence in your career to suggest that as Attorney General you would use the authority of that office to resolve the challenges of our broken immigration system in a fair and humane manner,” Durbin said to Sessions. “Tell me I'm wrong.” -- “Well, you are wrong, Senator Durbin,” Sessions replied.....

DHS nominee: Expectation of amnesty attracting immigrants to US border
President-elect Trump's nominee to lead the Department of Homeland Security believes that Central Americans are seeking asylum on the southern border in part because they are "very confident" that if they arrive they'll be allowed to remain in the country. -- "Most of the people that are coming up here from certainly Central America are coming here for two reasons, three probably," retired Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, who led U.S. Southern Command before retiring in 2016, said during his Senate Homeland Security Confirmation hearing on Tuesday. "The first is it is very unsafe; they're some of the most dangerous countries on the planet and that's unfortunate.".....

Democrats Helpless as Sessions Heads to Hill
Sen. Jeff Sessions will be in the hot seat Tuesday as senators consider his nomination for attorney general --- but, barring an unexpected revelation, Democrats appear to lack the ammunition to stop him. -- Not that the Alabama Republican's critics won't try. -- Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have already promised a thorough examination of his record, and Sen.

Donald Trump, with a little help from Congress, will have broad presidential powers to crack down on "sanctuary cities" that protect undocumented immigrants from his planned roundup and deportation of millions who are in the country illegally. -- In what could become a major conflict between the new president and local governments, the showdown likely will result in legal challenges testing how far the White House can go in dictating its priorities......
