Following his swearing-in, Attorney General Jeff Sessions offered a few words, noting that the “great honor” of holding the position he now does was something that he never expected would happen in his life. He says he loves the Department of Justice and the honor of leading it now is something he does not have “the words to express effectively.”
AG Sessions says there are a lot of things that need to done, starting with recognizing the good people who work there. He’s worked with them over the years, saying, “I know how good they are and their talents need to be directed at this nation’s benefit in a lot of different ways.”
Sessions notes, “We have a crime problem, I wish the rise that we are seeing in crime in America today were some sort of aberration or a blip, my best judgment, having been involved in criminal law enforcement for many years, is that this is a dangerous, permanent trend. It places the health and safety of the American people at risk. We will deploy the talents and abilities of the Department of Justice in the most effective way possible to confront this rise in crime and to protect the people of our country.”
He moved on to the topic of terrorism, noting the increased threat in that area as well. Noting the high priority that President Trump has placed on the problem, AG Sessions assured the President he could count on his Department of Justice to respond in an effective way.
Sessions continues, saying of the President, “And you’ve said something I think the American people believe, that we need a lawful system of immigration, one that serves the interest of the people of the United States. That’s not wrong, that’s not immoral, that’s not indecent. We admit a million people a year plus, lawfully, we need to end this lawlessness that threatens the public safety, pulls down wages of working Americans.”
He tells President Trump, “It is an honor beyond words to serve under you and your leadership. You’re putting together a great cabinet, which is just a thrill for me to have the opportunity to join. And I look forward to making sure that every ounce of strength that I have and that the people of the Department of Justice have is going to be focused on preserving and protecting the Constitution and the safety of this country. We will defend the laws of this country as passed by Congress. We will defend the lawful orders of the President of the United States with vigor and determination.”
President Trump then took the opportunity to sign three executive orders, all related to law enforcement. One targeting cartels, one creating a task force on crime reduction and public safety, and a third regarding criminal actions against law enforcement officers.
Thank you for reading and sharing my work – Facebook is trying to starve us out of existence, having cut literally 98% of our traffic over the last year. Your shares are crucial for our survival, and we thank you. We’ve also created a presence on Gab.ai and MeWe.com, although their reach is presently much smaller, the continued abuse by Facebook of conservative voices leaves us no option. We’re remaining on Facebook for the time being, as we make the transition. Please take a look when you have a chance or if we “suddenly disappear” from Facebook as has happened to many other truth-tellers. They’ll either starve us out or take us down, one way or another, sooner or later. Now and in the future, please look for me, Rick Wells, at http://www.facebook.com/RickRWells/ , http://www.gab.ai/RickRWells , https://mewe.com/profile/rick.wells.1 and on my website http://RickWells.US – Please SUBSCRIBE in the right sidebar at RickWells.US – not dot com.
