Senator Jeff Sessions released his response today to the announcement that high, no-scale fencing will be erected around the entire perimeter of the Democratic national convention venue. Up to 30,000 Bernie Sanders supporters are planning to protest Hillary Clinton’s nomination, but they will be kept outside the fenced area.
SENATOR SESSIONS: “It’s interesting that the Democratic National Committee will have a wall around their convention to keep unapproved people out while at the same time, their presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton, pushes for open borders policies that are even more radical than President Obama’s. She would refuse to deport dangerous criminal aliens until after they have been convicted of committing heinous crimes against Americans, close detention centers, issue even more extreme executive orders than Obama, and increase Syrian refugees five-fold. Her proposed policies make no sense, decimate the rule of law, further reduce wages for poor Americans, and increase the risk of terrorism and criminal behavior.
Security is a necessity in this increasingly dangerous world. Clinton and the DNC don’t hesitate to use walls and guns for protecting themselves and their elite friends. I say it’s time to provide such protection to the at-risk people like Kate Steinle, and Clinton not understanding this will lead to her defeat.”
