On Monday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) warned that if the GOP nominates a candidate who is “in cahoots” with pro-amnesty internationalists who want to erase all borders, American workers will suffer even more and it will be nearly impossible to restore America’s “lawful system of immigration.”

On Breitbart News Daily, which can be heard 6AM to 9AM ET on Sirius XM Patriot Channel 125, Sessions told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon that he was disappointed that immigration and trade have not been discussed as much in the debates because the “American people are entitled to and need to know where exactly where their candidates stand on immigration.”

“We know there is this cabal out there—the Singers, George Soros, even the Koch brothers, and Sheldon Adelson and others—that is deeply committed to a massive open borders philosophy,” Sessions said. “I’m not exaggerating when I say that they fundamentally see that a worker in Bangladesh should be able to contract with a business in American and come here and why should some government say no.”

Sessions said proponents of open borders and amnesty “don’t pay attention to the values and how it impacts the American people.”

Billionaire and open-borders advocate Paul Singer recently backed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who was the face of the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill, and Sessions said that if a candidate who is “in cahoots with this kind of cabal of financiers and billionaires” on amnesty is nominated and wins, it may be impossible to “restore a lawful system of immigration” that serves the interests of working Americans and not those of Wall Street and corporations.

Sessions said he believes that immigration and trade have not been thoroughly discussed in the debates because the owners of the media networks are themselves globalists who want more open borders and amnesty.

“I think their owners—their corporate gurus that dominate these networks and stations—are internationalists and globalists who have bought into this,” Sessions said.

On H-1B visas, Sessions said they “represent a tremendous threat to us” and Congress’s inaction on the matter “represents the obliviousness of Congress and some of these economic forces to what is happening.” He mentioned that half of STEM graduates are not finding jobs in STEM field and “wages for IT workers and STEM workers have not gone up since 2000” while companies like Microsoft that are pushing for more H-1B increases are laying of tens of thousands of American workers.

“We don’t have a shortage. It’s bogus as a three-dollar bill,” he said, mentioning that thousands of students and their parents have borrowed money to get engineering degrees and they do not have STEM jobs. “Give me a break.”

The Alabama Senator who has been the foremost champion of American workers in Congress mentioned that by a five-to-one margin the American people believe trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership reduce rather than increase their wages.

“The american people get this but we’re not having any discussion about it. Immigration and trade are issues that are critical to the average American working person. And if we don’t get this right, they’re going to be hammered,” Sessions said. “Our candidates are going to have to be forced to talk about it and the American people are going to have to know where they stand on trade and immigration before the election.”

Sessions said that is why the Senate should have a vote on the Trade Promotion Authority, which he said goes well beyond the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal that he said is filled with “rules that erode American sovereignty.” He said there is “no need for the United states of America to put itself in another global group where each country has the same vote as we do.”

He added that U.S. negotiators went like “lambs to the slaughter when it comes to negotiating with” other nations on trade deals that are detrimental to the American people.

“We dominate and we shouldn’t be tying us down like Gulliver in the land of Lilliputians with so many strings that the giant can’t move,” he said. “That is where we’re heading and it’s not necessary.”
