Immigration July 7, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"According to a new report from the Los Angeles Times—which, I have to say, is probably one of the more knowledgeable papers, if not the most knowledgeable paper in America concerning immigration issues.

Recess Appointments June 26, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"We are seeing the results of this on our borders right now. In 2011, we had 6,000 illegal immigrant youth from Central America apprehended. This year, we may hit more than 90,000. Next year, projections are as high as 130,000, costing billions of dollars to take care of them. That would be more than a 2,000-percent increase."
