Jeff Sessions is rewriting the immigration law into deportation law.

It's nothing less than an ethnic purge.

Today, amid the #Kavanaugh hearings and #MarioKart level discourse, he began another act in the purge.
What is he doing?

He will overrule a 2005 case that gives bind hearings to asylum seekers who pass a credible fear interview.

That means the majority of asylum seekers will have to fight their cases from inside a jail cell.
Sessions has been at this vile game for some time. Read this from March:…
It is infinitely harder to fight an asylum case from inside jail.

It breaks the spirit. Especially if your kids are ripped from you. Then, even when you PASS the initial hurdle, you'd stay in jail.

How to talk to your lawyer without getting recorded and paying massive fees?
Jeff Sessions is doing everything he can to make asylum as difficult as possible.

To break people who are already traumatized.

His cruelty knows no bounds. This is our Attorney General.

It's disgusting.
Keep in mind, asylum seekers (mostly Latino) will have to be incarcerated for lengthy periods of time.

In private prison complexes, mostly. Companies like CoreCivic and Geo Group.

Beginning to get the picture? But wait, there's more.
In 2016, the far right, white nationalist Center for Immigration Studies published a wishlist of hardline anti-immigrant actions the next President could take.

Here's number 29:
Why do I call CIS a white nationalist outfit? Because though it bills itself as a think tank promoting lower immigration levels, it was founded or nurtured by Dr. John Tanton, a eugenicist doctor widely regarded as the grandfather of the anti-immigrant movement.
Trump, Miller, and Sessions have been executing this wishlist since they took office, in some way, shape, or form.

It's a chapter in a playbook that's been 40 years in the making.

That's how far ahead they actually are. #Truth…
To be clear, this isn't the law yet. Sessions is certifying a case to himself...but only to overrule it.

@TheJusticeDept is going through pro-immigrant cases to overrule them. Changing the law without Congress.

But at least we can challenge in court?

Oh wait.

For those asking, here's a link:…
