    Conservative Treehouse ^ | on August 21, 2016 | by sundance
    Following a Hispanic outreach meeting by the Trump campaign numerous media outlets began reporting that Donald Trump was changing his position on immigration, specifically deportation of illegal immigrants. The Trump campaign immediately rebuked the false media reports last night. Senator Jeff Sessions appeared on Fox News this morning to continue asserting the campaign message that illegal border crossing will be halted, deportation of illegal aliens will be enforced and there is no substantive change to Donald Trump’s immigration position. The media loves to use the term “deportation force” to manufacture an narrative of a new controversy. However, there is already...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed back on Buzzfeed report a day earlier that said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may have reversed course on his immigration policy proposals. The junior Alabama senator told co-host Tucker Carlson ending the “lawlessness” must be the first priority of the president. “He has not changed his view, but he had a great meeting with people who had different ideas as I understand. I wasn’t there, but he had a good discussion. He listened to all the different views. Look, we need a lawful system of...

But chances are, we will know by this time on Saturday (just three days from now) as typically candidates want to maximize the convention news cycle and announcing a few days prior will help accomplish that and build some excitement leading into the convention itself. I have no idea who Trump is going to pick but I do know this: Once the pick is made, there is...

Jeff Sessions (R-AL)... Sessions argues Clinton’s plan is a rehashing of what the “industry-backed” advocates seeking lower priced labor have dubbed “immigration reform.” In the end, the Alabama lawmaker charges, the plan would largely serve to hurt Americans. He cited the work of Ron Hira, Paula Stephan, Hal Salzman, Michael Teitelbaum,...

    During the debate last night Senator Ted Cruz was asked a direct question by Megyn Kelly about why didn’t Senator Jeff Sessions endorse him. Cruz artfully avoided answering and instead deflecting his response to falsely accuse Donald Trump of sending Hillary Clinton four campaign contributions in 2008. Senator Cruz never answered the question. So why doesn’t Senator Jeff Sessions support Ted Cruz? The answer is within this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Kstyj5BTcM

    Donald Trump has named Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions the chairman of his national security advisory committee, the Republican frontrunner's campaign announced Thursday evening. Sessions, who became the first senator to endorse Trump earlier this week, will advise the candidate on matters of foreign policy and national security. "We need to understand the limits of our ability to intervene successfully in other nations," said Sessions, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, in a statement. "It is time for a healthy dose of foreign policy realism. In the Middle East, this means forming partnerships based on shared interests, not merely...

    Last Sunday, U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions raised eyebrows when he came out and endorsed Donald Trump for President of the United States. (SNIP) The first time the two met face to face was at a Senate Subcommittee hearing back in 2005. Renovations to the United Nations building in New York City were being plagued by cost overruns, missed deadlines and incompetence, and Trump had decided to come to the United States Senate to offer his services free of charge to help get the project back on track. The U.N. wanted to renovate its headquarters in New York City and estimated...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions endorses Trump at a rally with about 32,000 people and talk radio ignores it? Sessions, the `Gold Standard' of conservative Senators, endorses Trump, and crickets? Trump has lifted the veil on more pundits and politicians that I have ever seen, at least in my lifetime, and my first vote was for Nixon. They are trying to hang onto their existence. It is absolutly clear to me that Trump is leading a Rebellion and not a campaign. The status quo must be maintained at all costs......eh? Am I wrong in this? Are there things that Donald says that...

    National Review, a once-venerable conservative publication, has officially gone off the rails entirely, publishing an article calling Sen. Jeff Sessions a “prostitute” for endorsing billionaire Donald Trump for the GOP presidential nomination. That abominable attack on perhaps the most revered conservative in the U.S. Senate ran in a National Review piece arguing that anyone who endorses Trump is a “rat” that is “scurrying” and is also a “sellout.”

    The anti-immigration movement has come out swinging in the past several years, writing and proposing hundreds of restrictive state-level bills and berating a president who has deported more than a million people for not being tough enough. During this year's Republican presidential debates, candidates have peppered their arguments with plans for double-layer border fences, the theory of self-deportation, and even praise for Arizona's immigration crackdown. This should come as no surprise, given the myriad connections among border hawk politicians, pundits, advocacy groups, PACs, foundations, and legal advisers.
