Saturday Focus: Sessions Record

   Opponents of Alabama U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions' nomination as U.S. Attorney General are pointing to a lack of information in the questionnaire he filled out for the Senate Judiciary Committee. 
    The left-leaning People for The American Way says he has left out hundreds of interviews and statements from the period in which he was in office in Alabama:

 "Even after submitting his supplement, Senator Sessions still refuses to provide much information about the 20 year period in which he served as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama (1981-1993), Attorney General of Alabama (1995-1997), and even his first term as U.S. Senator (1997-2002).This is a particularly critical period because it includes and follows his failed nomination for a federal judgeship."

     Right leaning online groups are supporting Sessions. That includes an article by Forbes Magazine that you can read HERE, and a defense of Session HERE
From the Forbes editorial:

"During his 20 years in the U.S. Senate, Senator Sessions has been the leading advocate for tougher border control measures, ending illegal immigration and reforming our nation’s immigration laws to further the national interest, not the special business and political interests that benefit from illegal immigration and mass legal immigration. As attorney general, Jeff Sessions will carry out the President-elect’s mandate to end illegal immigration, as we have known it since Senator Ted Kennedy opened the floodgates back in 1965."
