Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed back on Buzzfeed report a day earlier that said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may have reversed course on his immigration policy proposals.
The junior Alabama senator told co-host Tucker Carlson ending the “lawlessness” must be the first priority of the president. Once that is done, then the other issues could be taken on.
“He has not changed his view, but he had a great meeting with people who had different ideas as I understand. I wasn’t there, but he had a good discussion. He listened to all the different views. Look, we need a lawful system of immigration. Trump is absolutely clear and correct on that. We must end the lawlessness first. We can’t talk about these other issues until that occurs. I think that remains his firm position.”
