JACKSON, MS (WDAM) -

U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., issued a statement Friday regarding President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to nominate Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., as the next U.S. Attorney General.

“Sen. Sessions will be a champion for the Constitution and the rule of law. He will also provide sound counsel to President-elect Trump during the selection of Supreme Court nominees and other judicial appointments. For the past eight years, the Justice Department has eroded our nation’s immigration laws, attacked our Second Amendment rights, and weakened religious liberty. It has been more concerned with pushing politics than administering the law. If confirmed, I am confident that Sen. Sessions can reverse that tide and help restore people’s faith in their government.”
