Today, California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement after Jeff Sessions’ hateful and divisive speech in Sacramento, where he attacked Democratic leaders for standing with Dreamers and other immigrants across our state, and where he announced Trump’s lawsuits targeting our laws that protect immigrants and our State’s sovereignty:
“Jeff Sessions makes a mockery of justice whenever he uses that word. He is a throwback to a time when sheriffs turned fire hoses and police dogs on peaceful Civil Rights protesters. He has no business serving as Attorney General and he’s not fit to come to California and lecture us on anything. California, however, could certainly teach him much, if he were willing to set aside his bigoted and prejudiced world view and actually listen. We could teach him about inclusion, and compassion, and his obligation to recognize and value the basic human dignity of every person.
“Our leaders, from the Governor and Attorney General to our leaders in the Legislature and local governments across the state are resolute in protecting immigrants from the Trump/Sessions witch hunt.”
We need you to join us…
Let’s make our voices heard: call California’s Republican Members of Congress and demand they stand up to the Trump/Sessions witch hunt:
John Vigna, Communications Director
