    Hans Von Spakovsky: Democrats Oppose Jeff Sessions Because He値l Enforce Our Immigrat

    Hans Von Spakovsky: Democrats Oppose Jeff Sessions Because He値l Enforce Our Immigration Laws

    10 Jan 2017

    Hans von Spakovsky of the Heritage Foundation, formerly an attorney with the Department of Justice, said he expected 吐ireworks at the confirmation hearings for attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions on Tuesday痴 Breitbart News Daily.

    展hat痴 going on here is that, look, professionally, Jeff Sessions has the perfect background to be the U.S. Attorney General from being a line prosecutor working for the Justice Department, to being a U.S. attorney, to being the state Attorney General in Alabama. Professionally, he痴 got the perfect background for this, von Spakovsky said.

    釘ut Democrats really don稚 like him because of his views on issues, he continued. 擢or example, they really don稚 want someone who痴 actually going to enforce our immigration laws. They致e been giving him a hard time in the civil rights area too, even though many of their criticisms really have been false. So they池e going to give him a very hard time, even if they eventually, perhaps, on the Democratic side will vote for him, because they have to make their liberal advocacy groups that support them happy that they gave him a hard time.

    SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam suggested that Democrats would be 砥ncouth to Sessions to gin up donations and political support from their base.

    添es, because I think that痴 going to anger the same people all around the country that voted for Donald Trump, von Spakovsky agreed. 鄭nd you can tell how this is going because after Sessions testifies, they池e actually pulling up a panel of other witnesses. And who have the Democrats called? They have called the director of the ACLU, the president of the NAACP, and a woman from an LGBT group. All of them are simply going to be critical of him on issues, not his professional background and that痴 not a reason to not vote for him for confirmation.

    Kassam asked von Spakovsky to discuss his recent article about how Democrats have tried to portray strong action against voter fraud by Sessions as a nefarious attempt to suppress the minority vote.

    展hen he was a U.S. attorney in Alabama, he prosecuted three local civil rights activists who were accused of voter fraud, von Spakovsky recalled. 典hey were stealing absentee ballots from voters black voters and changing the votes. Unfortunately, the jury found them innocent, and so ever since then, he痴 been accused of having pushed this for racist reasons; he was trying to suppress the black vote.

    展hat all those stories leave out is that the reason this case was prosecuted was because local black voters and local black candidates called the FBI and called Sessions, saying, 銑ook, we think our vote is being stolen by these other black candidates,樗 he noted. There was a power struggle going on inside the Democratic party. This was an all-Democratic county, in these races. The federal grand jury was presented with overwhelming evidence that these three defendants were stealing ballots.

    添eah, a jury found them innocent, but I actually found and interviewed the 40-year career Justice Department lawyer who worked on this case, and he said it was clearly a case of jury nullification, von Spakovsky said. 典hese folks were local activists, and the jury wasn稚 going to find them guilty no matter what they did. One quick example: a family of six people, African-Americans, testified in court that one of the defendants had changed their votes without their permission, and yet the jury didn稚 believe them. They, instead, believed the defendant when he said, 糎ell, yeah, I did change their votes, but I had their permission to do it.樗

    As Kassam put it, Sessions was 登pposing the exploitation of minority groups, and this is now being used as a cudgel against him.

    典he NAACP came down to this case, and instead of wanting to get these vote-stealers convicted, they actually provided lawyers to defend these folks in the lawsuit, von Spakovsky marveled.

    He said the Democrats position was a combination of instinctively viewing 登ld white guy Sessions as a racist in a story of conflict with black activists and crass political opportunism by senior Democrats who know perfectly well what really happened in the vote fraud case.

    典heir attitude towards any voter fraud prosecutions has always been: if the defendants are black, well, you must be doing it for racist reasons, he noted. 迭emember, we saw that in the New Black Panther story out of Philly in 2008, when Eric Holder came in and immediately dismissed the voter intimidation case against them, despite the overwhelming evidence that the Black Panthers had been intimidating voters and poll watchers. It was dismissed by the Obama Justice Department because they didn稚 believe that black defendants should be prosecuted. They don稚 believe in the race-neutral enforcement of the voting and election law.

    As to Sessions prospects of making it through the confirmation process, von Spakovsky pointed out that 鍍here痴 not a single Republican that has said he痴 going to vote against Sessions.

    的 really think the worst that can happen is the Democrats put up a histrionic, almost hysterical, raising of all these issues, make all these false claims against Sessions but in the end, like I said, the Republicans have the majority, and I think they池e going to be able to vote him in, he predicted.

    So much of what is wrong and illegal and fraudulent in our government revolves around immigration. It touches practically everything. Illegal immigration has negatively impacted us demographically, in education, economic and skill levels for our nation. Illiteracy and lack of English by millions here illegally and many granted legal entry has not been for the benefit of America.
