Senator Sessions Needs Your Help NOW!

Despite being overwhelmingly qualified to serve as Attorney General, true immigration reformer Sen. Jeff Sessions is being unfairly attacked simply because he fought for the American people and thwarted mass amnesty legislation. In an unprecedented step, pro-amnesty Senate Democrats have launched an all-out assault on Sessions’ candidacy—a break in Senate tradition never seen in the history of our nation.
