Sessions Continues Administration's Demonizing of Latino Immigrants as Criminals and "Gang Members". Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
POLITICO reports on September 21 that A.G. Jeff Sessions, who long ago earned notoriety as the Senate's most vocal anti-immigrant member, and who in a January, 2015 "Handbook" for Senate Republicans lavishly praised the "Nordics"-only 1924 "national origins" act which cut off virtually all immigration from Asia, the Middle East and Africa, as well as Southern and Eastern Europe, continued the Trump administration's campaign against Latino immigrants by attacking unaccompanied minors trying to escape gang violence in Central America as being gang members themselves.

According to the above report, Sessions called these children "wolves in sheep's clothing". while also calling for Trump's Mexican border Wall to be built.

Whether any of the more than 13,000 children from Central American countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras who have been admitted to the US under the Department of Health and Human Services' Refugee Resettlement Program are gang members remains to be proven, since Sessions did not refer to any hard evidence to back up his charge.

One thing is clear, however. America now has an attorney general - and a president - who, as a general matter (despite the president's commendable support for DACA legislation - something that Sessions is unlikely ever to support)

do not welcome immigration by people of any age from Central or South America (or any other part of the world besides Europe).
