If Sessions was really interested in unclogging court dockets, he'd focus on identifying fraudulent cases instead of gutting protections for deserving people.

Don't drink his Kool-Aid. This is about exclusion and nodding to his white nationalist base.
Similarly, 45 campaigned on stopping illegal immigration, but with the #MuslimBan and #DACA and #TPS revocations, and support for gutting #familyimmigration, the people he's going after are people authorized to be here. People with valid status.
Somehow, he said #DACA was unconstitutional, but when he unilaterally overrules an agency like the Board of Immigration Appeals, that's ok.

Hypocrite much?
By pushing narratives of "hordes" of fraudulent cases gaming our system, he justifies his unlawful power grab and evisceration of #dueprocess protections, never once acknowledging the validity of the vast majority of these claims.
It's not just Sessions. A carefully planned anti-immigrant movement has been working on these issues for decades.

That allowed an anti-abortion activist like Scott Lloyd to head the Dept of Health & Human Services.
Kris Kobach to head a (debunked) voter fraud commission.
Julie Kirschner (former exec director of the largest anti-immigrant organization, FAIR) to be in charge of an oversight agency on USCIS, the ombudsman's office.

They will change laws and write narratives to fit their vision of what America should look like. They are a cancer.
The damage being done to our institutions will outlast even a second term of 45.

What can be done?

1. Learn about the system. Follow folks like @shobawadhia @aayoub @KhaledBeydoun @gsiskind @SirineShebaya @MuslimAdvocates @LegalAidJustice @ZahraBilloo @matt_cam and others.
2. Use your vote for those who have no vote. Hold our elected officials accountable.

3. Keep up the pressure on Congress and in the streets. These changes won't happen overnight. But to quote Andy Dufresne, all that's really required is time and pressure.
