Attorney General Jeff Sessions joined condemnation against violence in Charlottesville Wednesday, calling out “racism, bigotry, hatred and violence.” Sessions’ statement came despite his making racist comments throughout his career, including reportedly saying he thought the Ku Klux Klan was “OK until I found out they smoked pot.” Meanwhile, Sessions repeated his threats to withhold Justice Department grants to so-called sanctuary cities whose police officers refuse to act as de facto immigration enforcement agents.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions: “These policies [of sanctuary cities] do far broader damage to the country than many understand. At its root—at its root, it is a rejection of our immigration laws and a declaration of open borders.”
