7. True, but Dems can't shirk away from tackling Sessions regardless :

We have to put pressure against this appointment because Sessions will be Trump's instrument of authoritarianism.

Jennifer's interrogation guide tackles constitutional freedoms Republicans claim to care about:

How are you proposing to pay for a massive increase in deportations?

Does the threat of loss of federal funds to cities that choose not to prioritize imprisonment of nonviolent drug offenders raise 10th Amendment questions? Wasn’t coercion of the states one of your key objections to Obamacare?

What do you tell the National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) (a major supporter of Trump) that objects to “a substantial loss of federal funding if Trump makes good on his campaign promise to punish cities who refuse to deploy their law enforcement agencies for the purpose of rounding up and detaining undocumented immigrants for the purpose of deportation”?

To pay for the wall along the southern border, Trump has supported a plan to “impound” remittance payments. How is this constitutional? What would be the economic effect in Mexico and other countries if that was somehow accomplished? Wouldn’t that increase the flow of illegal immigration?

Does he intend to try repealing birthright citizenship by statute? Would you then be criminalizing millions of children born in this country?

Do you intend to deport illegal immigrants who in good faith stepped forward to identify themselves under DACA? Do you oppose legislation that would bar this based on fairness and humanitarian concerns?
