Sessions has the power, now, to do what he has always dreamed of.... And he doesn't need his white hood to do it in the middle of the night, he can do it in broad daylight. No fig leaf can cover that man's true nature. He is the epitome of the "old South". I was amazed at his deportment during his hearings, belittling and demeaning interlocutors of color and women, and being polite to his white peers - it was patent.

Between his ICE Troopers and his "white rights" division of the DOJ, he's the rightful successor to Heinrich Himmler. Dark days ahead for darkie people of color.

I think you have understated the seriousness of this. It is not just AG Sessions or just Mr Trump but an entire chunk of America which laid seething with hatred toward anyone who was not white, and now as many of these folks have publicly stated, they have the support of the administration.

I look back at my naivete to believe in the 1960's that within 3 generations this would for the most part be laid to rest. that is genuinely SAD

These are the people who are going to care for us in our old age! We desperately need these kids working so Social Security doesn't go bust. Certainly our own kids are useless and will just leave us in the back seat of the car in the WalMart parking lot when it's 100 degrees out. They aren't about to spend 20 years changing mom's diapers. Our collective future depends on immigrants.

Indeed seething. So many CONservatives have taken their white hoods off in the comment sections of many blogs.
