Sessions said that the first step to protecting all Americans, and to saving lives – in Texas at least – was to address the issue of sanctuary cities: “I believe, and Congress must do, that federal grant money is available to assist jurisdictions that are able to bu에그 벳ild an environment conducive to human dignity, respect for authority and safe communities, and to protect both immigrants and public safety.”

“It would be my expectation, I think, that someone is going to be appointed shortly to inve블랙 잭stigate this very serious issue,” Sessions said, before he departed.
