January 23, 2017 in Policy Filings

On January 23, NHMC co-signed a letter from the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights to the Senate Judiciary Committee, opposing the appointment of Senator Jeff Sessions to U.S. Attorney General.

In total, 437 organizations signed onto the letter, which specifically argues that “Senator Sessions has a 30-year record of racial insensitivity, bias against immigrants, disregard for the rule of law, and hostility to the protection of civil rights that makes him unfit to serve as the Attorney General of the United States.” The letter also details Senator Sessions’ troubling history around such vital issues as voting rights, hate crimes, LGBT rights, women’s rights, and criminal justice, among others.
