Ann Coulter: Jeff Sessions ‘Better Be Ready to Arrest’ Congressmen Bringing Illegal Aliens to Trump’s SOTU (Video)

Populist conservative columnist and New York Times best-selling author Ann Coulter says Attorney General Jeff Sessions “better be ready to arrest all” members of Congress who are expected to bring illegal aliens as their dates to President Trump’s “State of the Union” (SOTU) address.

In an interview with conservative talk radio host Howie Carr, Coulter said Sessions should be gearing up to arrest Washington, D.C. politicians who arrive at Trump’s SOTU address with illegal aliens.

COULTER: I’ve also heard they’re planning on inviting illegal aliens. So Jeff Sessions better be ready to arrest all of them for conspiring to commit a crime, which I believe is a felony under federal law in all 50 states, even if the crime itself is not a felony. I mean, they had to have meetings, they had to make a phone call. These are people who are in the country illegally and anyone conspiring with them to keep them here illegally, to invite them to a State of the Union address, Jeff Sessions should have them all arrested and I mean the congressmen.

But seriously, Sessions should be looking at all of these governors and mayors for conspiring to commit federal crimes.

U.S. Workers Win Lost Wages After Being Discriminated Against in Favor of Foreigners by CO Corp.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s Department of Justice (DOJ) settled a case with a Colorado corporation that imported foreign workers instead of hiring Americans, winning the affected U.S. workers the money they had lost without those jobs.

In a settlement with Crop Production Services, Inc. out of Loveland, Colorado, American workers who were passed on by the corporation in favor of employing foreign workers will receive a settlement of $18,738.75 each, according to the DOJ.

The corporation must also pay civil penalties of $10,5000 to the U.S. while undergoing DOJ training on the anti-discrimination measures of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Crop Production, as a term of the settlement, will additionally have to comply with DOJ monitoring and reporting requirements.

“There will be zero tolerance for companies that violate the Immigration and Nationality Act by hiring foreign visa holders over U.S. workers,” Acting Assistant Attorney General John Gore of the Civil Rights Division said in a statement. “The Division’s Protecting U.S. Workers Initiative is committed to fighting discriminatory hiring practices that prevent qualified U.S. workers from obtaining jobs, and we commend Texas RioGrande Legal Aid for bringing this matter to our attention.”

MSNBC Panelist: White Men ‘Pose the Biggest Threat to Americans’ (Video)

Saturday on MSNBC, during a discussion on an FBI report on “black identity extremists,” Jamira Burley, the founder of Genynot, said white men posed “the biggest threat to Americans every single day.”

Burley said, “What is extremely disturbing about Jeff Sessions and the FBI rhetoric around this idea of black identity extremist is it continues to highlight white Americans disdain with black people demanding equal due which is protection under the law, access to resources and the ability to freely move through throughout society without being victimized and criminalized.”

She continued, “What is interesting though is that white men continue to be the–pose the biggest threat to Americans every single day. It’s been documented and verified that they are more likely to burn down churches, more likely to commit mass murders and mass shootings and so Jeff Sessions’ reality and his assessment on these people I think is both lacking in facts and both reality.”

3800 Gang Members Charged in Transnational DOJ Operation

A transnational operation led by Attorney General Jeff Sessions yielded charges against more than 3,800 gang members from the United States, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

Sessions, along with law enforcement officials throughout Central America, announced that Operation Regional Shield resulted in charges against thousands of gang members from the violent El Salvadorian MS-13 and 18th Street gangs.

“MS-13 is one of the most violent and ruthless gangs in America today, endangering communities in more than 40 states,” Sessions said. “But under President Trump’s strong leadership, the Department of Justice is taking them off our streets.”

“Today, we are announcing that our partnership with law enforcement in Central America, has yielded charges against more than 3,800 gang members just in the last six months,” Sessions continued. “More than 70 of these defendants were living in the United States, from California to Ohio to Boston.”

“MS-13 coordinates across our borders to kill, rape and traffic drugs and underage girls; we’ve got to coordinate across our borders to stop them,” Session said. “That’s exactly what our courageous and professional DOJ agents and attorneys are doing. We will continue to maintain this steadfast policy and dismantle this gang.”

Sessions’ DOJ to Sue Colorado Corporation for Hiring Foreigners over Americans

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice (DOJ) said it will file suit against a Colorado corporation accused of hiring foreign workers over Americans. It will be the first-ever lawsuit based on President Trump’s ‘Buy American, Hire American’ executive order.

In a statement by Sessions, the DOJ announced it file a lawsuit against Crop Production Services, Inc. The company is based in Loveland, Colorado. The DOJ will claim the company discriminated against American workers in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

“In the spirit of President Trump’s Executive Order on Buy American and Hire American, the Department of Justice will not tolerate employers who discriminate against U.S. workers because of a desire to hire temporary foreign visa holders,” Sessions said in a statement. “The Justice Department will enforce the Immigration and Nationality Act in order to protect U.S. workers as they are the very backbone of our communities and our economy. Where there is a job available, U.S. workers should have a chance at it before we bring in workers from abroad.”

In 2016, according to the DOJ, Crop Production discriminated against at least three American workers in El Campo, Texas, by refusing to give them jobs in seasonal positions. The company instead, awarded those jobs to imported foreign workers who came to the U.S. on the H-2A visa program.

The DOJ also says Crop Production hit American workers with tougher job requirements than they did foreign workers on H-2A visas in order to discourage Americans from taking jobs at the company’s Texas facility. According to the DOJ, American workers were forced to complete background checks and drug tests, while the imported foreign workers were allowed to begin working before completing either of the job requirements.

Justice Department fights restrictions on freedom of thought and speech at public colleges

Over the weekend, the University of California, Berkeley, spent $800,000 to provide security for an appearance by conservative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos, who spoke for just 15 minutes before noisy protests cut him off.

The Trump administration thrust itself into the midst of the battle over free speech on college campuses Tuesday, siding with activists in a case challenging a Georgia school’s strict limits on where and how students can express themselves.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned that freedom of thought and speech are “under attack” on college campuses, and he called on university officials to “boldly and unequivocally” defend free expression rather than stifle it.

“The American university was once the center of academic freedom — a place of robust debate, a forum for the competition of ideas,” Mr. Sessions said as he spoke to students at Georgetown Law School in Washington. “But it is transforming into an echo chamber of political correctness and homogenous thought, a shelter for fragile egos.”

While the attorney general said the problems concern all sides of the political spectrum, the case in which the Justice Department sought to intervene involved a Christian student who challenged Georgia Gwinnett College’s “free speech zone” policy.

Sessions: ‘We Are Facing The Deadliest Drug Crisis In American History’

The Justice Department has focused on combating drug abuse by targeting health care fraud, taking down the largest online drug market, and launching an Opioid Fraud and Abuse Detection Unit.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions told law enforcement officials Friday that America is facing its “deadliest drug crisis” in history.

An early government estimate pegged the amount of drug overdoes deaths in 2016 at 64,000. That’s a sharp increase from the 52,000 Americans who lost their lives from drug overdoses in 2015. “That would be the highest drug death toll and the fastest increase in that death toll in American history. And every day this crisis grows,” Sessions said in Harrisburg.

President Trump and his administration has sought to address the drug overdose epidemic that’s buoyed by an increase of opioid usage.

“In my home state of Alabama, we have had more painkiller prescriptions than Alabamians for over a decade,” Sessions said during his Friday speech.

Justice Dept. to Take On Affirmative Action in College Admissions

Supporters and critics of the project said it was clearly targeting admissions programs that can give members of generally disadvantaged groups, like black and Latino students, an edge over other applicants with comparable or higher test scores.

The Trump administration is preparing to redirect resources of the Justice Department’s civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to discriminate against white applicants, according to a document obtained by The New York Times.

The document, an internal announcement to the civil rights division, seeks current lawyers interested in working for a new project on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”

The announcement suggests that the project will be run out of the division’s front office, where the Trump administration’s political appointees work, rather than its Educational Opportunities Section, which is run by career civil servants and normally handles work involving schools and universities.

The document does not explicitly identify whom the Justice Department considers at risk of discrimination because of affirmative action admissions policies. But the phrasing it uses, “intentional race-based discrimination,” cuts to the heart of programs designed to bring more minority students to university campuses.

US charging 412 in health fraud schemes worth $1.3 billion (Video)

Sessions said in his remarks that nearly 300 health care providers are being suspended or banned from participating in federal health care programs.

U.S. prosecutors announced Thursday that they have charged more than 400 people with taking part in health care fraud and opioid scams that totaled $1.3 billion in false billing.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the collective action the “largest health care fraud takedown operation in American history” and said it indicates that some doctors, nurses and pharmacists “have chosen to violate their oaths and put greed ahead of their patients.”

Among those charged are six Michigan doctors accused of a scheme to prescribe unnecessary opioids. A Florida rehab facility is alleged to have recruited addicts with gift cards and visits to strip clubs, leading to $58 million in false treatments and tests.

Officials said those charged in the schemes include more than 120 people involved in prescribing and distributing narcotics.

“They seem oblivious to the disastrous consequences of their greed. Their actions not only enrich themselves, often at the expense of taxpayers, but also feed addictions and cause addictions to start,” Sessions said in prepared remarks.

Sessions Promises DOJ Crackdown On White Collar Crime

“Companies should succeed because they provide superior products and services, not because they have paid off the right people.”

Jeff Sessions told a room full of attorneys in Washington, DC Monday that just because he and the Department of Justice have promised to crack down on illegal immigration, that doesn’t mean they won’t also prioritize cleaning up white collar crime.

“Focusing on these challenges does not mean we will reduce our efforts in other areas,” the Attorney General told attendees at the Ethics & Compliance Initiative’s annual conference.

“We also have a responsibility to protect American consumers,” he continued. “These laws are in place for a reason. When they are broken, it has real consequences in peoples’ lives.”
