U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions applauded President Donald Trump for the implementation of the travel ban and called it a “great victory” for the Trump White House.
During an interview with “Fox & Friends” Friday, Sessions said, “I think it was a great victory for the President, we’re going to focus on these six countries alone who have really failed states with terrorist basis in them.”
“We need to be very careful before we admit people from those countries, the President is exactly correct,” he added.
The travel ban took effect Thursday at 8 p.m., and bars migrants from six Muslim-majority countries – Syria, Iran, Yemen, Somalia, Libya and Sudan – from entering the United States without a significant and established connection to the country.
Sessions also praised the U.S. Supreme Court for rejecting the Left’s narrative after it unanimously voted 9-0 on Monday to uphold the president’s travel ban.
“It was a major slap down to them,” Sessions told the “Fox & Friends” panel.
The Daily Caller reports:
Hundreds of protesters gathered at Los Angeles International Airport Thursday to protest the ban, holding signs and chanting “Say it loud and say it clear, immigrants are welcome here.”
“Under the laws of the United States you should only enter this country properly,” Sessions said. “You don’t get to come into the country illegally, and if you do, you are subject to being deported.”
