Why would the Department of Justice seek to enforce the hiring of illegals to enforce the law? It's mind boggling, but it's just another symptom of what is wrong today with our DOJ. Law enforcement requires personnel who instill trust in the people they serve. When they don't it breaks down and like any other large entity, there will be a few who overstep their authority. But when you ask for taxpaying citizens to trust and sometimes take directions from those who are not even citizens of the land they are supposed to serve, the line between law and unlawful has not only been redrawn, it no longer exists.
We shouldn't be surprised, for over the last eight years of a DOJ under President Obama, we've had Attorney General Eric Holder refuse to answer questions by the Congress, a body by law having the right to question all who use appropriated funds for their federal duties. His actions eventually resulted in Holder being found in contempt of Congress.
In similar fashion, his follow-on replacement, Loretta Lynch made the choice to take the Fifth twice and was also "caught" by an observant local TV reporter in Lost Angeles holding an unethical meeting on the LA airport tarmac with former President Bill Clinton, a mere few days before James Comey decided not to pursue charges against his wife, candidate Hillary Clinton. Coincidence? Possible but not likely.
These two high ranking public servants have shown themselves to be political hacks of the worst order and should never be considered for any other government task again. Why would they not answer questions from Congress about how they carried out their duties? What did they have to hide? Their duty was to follow and carry out the law, not to become an impediment to it. A legal system which follows and carries out the law, not one which looks for ways to avoid its obligations is what we need.
If the Senate minority faces reality, moves out of the way and allows the confirmation of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General in January, that will happen. Sessions, a man with a great foundation in constitutional law and the experience to go with his knowledge will carry out the laws with diligence and fairness. Law carried out under what is the Law of the Land, the Constitution of the United States, is the only way to live up to the obligations of the oath an Attorney General takes upon assuming office. It's truly a shame that Mr. Sessions' two most recent predecessors chose to do otherwise.
God bless America and may she ever be free.
Coming up over the next two days: George Washington and the Thanksgiving proclamation and a prayer of Thanksgiving for all of that we Americans have been blessed with.
