Jeff Sessions Says It’s ‘Painful’ Hearing Christians Condemn His Family Separation Policy

“I have critics from a lot of different areas,” says the attorney general. You don’t say!

Apparently it bothers Attorney General Jeff Sessions when faith leaders criticize his policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border. Maybe they do that because it’s a horrific policy, sir!


WASHINGTON ― Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a longtime member of the Methodist Church, said Thursday that it hurts him to hear Christian leaders condemning his policy of taking children away from their parents at the border and putting them in cages in detention facilities.

“It is painful,” Sessions said in an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network.

“I have critics from a lot of different areas. I think our church people are really concerned about children, that’s what I’m hearing,” he said. “I feel it. I think there’s a legitimate concern there, and I’m pleased to work with the president to address those concerns.””

Sessions is leading the charge on the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policy on immigration, which separates kids from their parents so the adults can be criminally prosecuted for crossing the border without documentation. The administration has separated more than 2,300 children from their parents, so far, and has no plan for reuniting them. Previously, authorities typically kept migrant families together and routed them to immigration courts.

Photos from detention facilities show kids being kept in large cages and given foil blankets. Audio from one facility, obtained by ProPublica, features small children crying out for their parents as a U.S. Border Patrol agent jokes about an “orchestra” of wailing children.

Faith leaders of all persuasions, including the leader of Sessions’ own church, have denounced the policy. When Sessions invoked the Bible to defend it last week, he drew widespread criticism from Christian leaders who described family separations as “immoral,” “disgraceful” and “deeply un-Christian.”

All that fuss just puts him off his milk and cookies.

You're the damn DOJ. Your fear of death shouldn't be the basis of law.

9. The real victim is Sessions



Oh, poor Jefferson, alas! Someone gave him a sad. Poor, poor melting snowflake Jefferson.


And all he did was help tear children away from their parents so the basketful of deplorables could have some more red meat. Fuck you!

11. Sessions is mocking Jesus and everything he stood for.

Not to mention his obvious disdain for his church leadership and congregation.
They might be smart to righteously kick his ass to the curb.

14. I surely hope that he gets excommunicated.

That would be fitting. I would like to see his response to that. The pain is the criticism of course because he was certainly grinning when he was defending the horrific policy change and how they were taking children away from their families as a "deterrent".
