Yesterday Senator Sessions took a position requiring moral courage and leadership. He announced that he is throwing his support behind Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. I know it was a tough decision because he is also very fond of Senator Ted Cruz, another good man who also has his heart and mind in the right place on the issue. But Sessions chose Trump and I think it's because he feels that the New York businessman will be the most forceful candidate in insuring that the border issue is controlled and our national sovereignty survives. After all, a nation without borders is clearly no longer a nation. America is the most compassionate nation in the world, but she is not required to allow anyone and everyone entry into this country just because they want to be here. Both Trump and Sessions know this and I truly believe that was the driving force in his decision.
And as for Senator Sessions' future after taking this stand, well, the Senate has not been very kind to him anyway. They have often disregarded his views with nary a comment and have even kept him from a plum position, yet the Senator has always been gracious and has never created chaos. No, he has only stood by his positions and politely refused to bend to expediency and he is one of the few long time Republican Senators who have stood their ground on the big issues that count. But then again, I would expect that from this good Christian man and a fellow Methodist who tries to find the good in all things.
So I thank you, Senator Sessions, for taking a big step toward changing the direction of the immigration debate through the election of Donald Trump. This is, at least in my opinion, the issue of our time. God bless you, Sir.
