Trump's Pick For Attorney General Known For Hard-Line Immigration Stance

Jeff Sessions of Alabama was the first Republican senator to get behind the-then renegade candidate Trump. Now, he is President-elect Donald Trump's pick for attorney general — and his hard-line stance on immigration and 30-year-old allegations of racism are sure to draw scrutiny in confirmation hearings.

Long before Trump was winning primaries, or picking up political endorsements, he had a conservative ally in the Deep South.

"We have a man here who really helped me," Trump said about Sessions while campaigning last year in Alabama. "He's the one person I sought his counsel, because he's been so spot on. He's so highly respected."

In a foreshadowing of the endorsement that would come later, Sessions joined Trump on stage in his hometown Mobile, donning a "Make America Great" baseball cap.

"Thank you for the work you've put into the immigration issue," Sessions told Trump and the crowd. "I'm really impressed with your plan."

I hope they put into place a reward program for citizens to help get illegals arrested. Turn in an illegal get $50. Time to get them gone!

That's a great idea, but how would you know they are an illegal?
