Senator Jeff Sessions is Donald Trump’s nominee for Attorney General of the United States. He failed to secure a federal judgeship because of his racist beliefs. Now, it has come to light that in 2006 that gave a speech on the floor of the Senate where he excoriated immigrants from the Dominican Republic.
According to the Huffington Post, he said the following;
“Fundamentally, almost no one coming from the Dominican Republic to the United States is coming because they have a skill that would benefit us and that would indicate their likely success in our society,” Sessions said at the time. “They come in because some other family member of a qualified relation is here as a citizen or even a green card holder. That is how they get to come. They are creating a false document to show these are relatives or their spouses and they are married when it is not so.”
