Jeff Sessions: Fence’s Fate Causes Flip Flop

Last July, Sessions was completely fine with the President signing bills into law while at the same time declaring that he won’t enforce parts of the law.

Oh, but now that Sessions thinks that a law near and dear to his own heart may be ignored by the President, well, Beauregard’s attitude has changed:

Plans to erect a 700-mile fence along the border with Mexico may be in jeopardy as the new Democratic majority in Congress considers immigration reforms that could eliminate funding for the project.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., was an early advocate for the fence, which was approved by Congress and President Bush. Sessions on Thursday said he was anticipating a challenge.

“I am worried about it. There could be attempts to undermine what we voted for,” Sessions said. . . .

 “I’m not going to accept this just being gutted by either new law or by the administration not following through on what the law would require.”

To summarize: It’s fine and dandy for the President to declare that he will ignore a law banning torture, but if the President refuses to spend funds marked for a useless fence, the gloves come off. 

As an aside, I’m hoping that if the fence fails, my idea will receive some consideration.
