Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a huge announcement earlier in the week that drug dealers didn’t like.
“You drug dealers are going to prison,” said Sessions in a statement.
Sessions has long made it clear that he will crack down on drugs and find a way to solve the war on drugs.
Sessions issued a memo to all federal prosecutors, calling for stricter enforcement of drug related crimes.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The memo states that “it is a core principle that prosecutors should charge and pursue the most serious, readily provable offense. This policy affirms our responsibility to enforce the law, is moral and just, and produces consistency.”
While the Department of Justice acknowledges in the memo that “(t)here will be circumstances in which good judgment would lead a prosecutor to conclude that a strict application of the above charging policy is not warranted,” it also states that “”(r)ecommendations for sentencing departures or variances require supervisory approval, and the reasoning must be documented in the file.”
In his news conference, Sessions said the memo “means we’re going to meet our responsibility to enforce the law with judgment and fairness. It is simply the right and moral thing to do.”
“These are not low-level drug offenders we, in the federal courts, are focusing on,” Sessions said. “These are drug dealers, and you drug dealers are going to prison.”
Finally, we have leadership that is dedicated to taking on major issues. Former President Barack Obama allowed the war on drugs to spiral out of control. Now, both President Donald Trump and Sessions are committed to putting an end to it and keeping our citizens safe from violent criminals.
