Trump Gives Immigration Patriot Jeff Sessions the Cold Shoulder While Endorsing Mass Migration Booster Tommy Tuberville
On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, President Donald Trump endorsed former Auburn University football head coach Tommy Tuberville in Alabama’s Republican primary for its Senate seat.
A week prior during the Alabama primary, Tuberville came in first place by receiving 33 percent of the vote, whereas Sessions came in second place receiving 31 percent of the vote. The two will now be going into a runoff election on March 31, 2020.
Trump tweeted, “Tommy was a terrific head football coach at Auburn University. He is a REAL LEADER who will never let MAGA/KAG, or our Country, down! Tommy will protect your Second Amendment (which is under siege), is strong on Crime and the Border, and truly LOVES our Military and our Vets. He will be a great Senator for the people of Alabama. Coach Tommy Tuberville, a winner, has my Complete and Total Endorsement. I love Alabama!”
In endorsing Tuberville, Trump clearly repudiated immigration patriot Jeff Sessions, his former Attorney General and a staunch defender of America First immigration principles during his time in the U.S. Senate.
Trump is still bitter with how Sessions recused himself from the bogus Russia probe. There is clearly a grudge, but Trump should let bygones be bygones.
Immigration is what got Trump elected and is the most crucial political issue of our times given the changing demographics America has faced since the passage of the 1965 Immigration Act and the potential political transformation that will result from it.
Sessions at least has the track record of combatting both legal and illegal mass migration while in the Senate and helped implement many aspects of Trump’s agenda while he was AG.
Tuberville on the other hands looks like another establishment candidate in the making.
According to Hank Johnson of VDare, the former Auburn coach has made some questionable hires in his campaign that indicate he is willing to play ball with establishment types who are hell-bent on undermining the America First agenda.
First up, was Tuberville’s hiring of Sean Spicer.
Spicer was a former RNC employee who was unsettled about then-candidate Donald Trump’s tough immigration rhetoric. Spicer would later become the 28th White House Press Secretary and then the White House Communications Director.
Tuberville also hired consultant Rob Jesmer. The consultant in question served as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s chief GOP aide for FWD.us — an organization pushing for amnesty for illegal aliens and a never-ending supply of H1-B visa workers to displace American workers.
On immigration, Tuberville doesn’t get the bigger picture and regurgitates generic conservative talking points about the matter, while ignoring the elephant in the living room of mass legal immigration.
At a Shoals Republican Club, Tuberville made the following statement in favor of mass legal immigration:
I’m for the border, again I can go through all this, I’m for the border, I’ve been down there, I’ve seen it. There are people coming across the border that need jobs, okay, and we want them to come over here, we just need to know who’s here, okay. Put the wall up, then we let them come in, and become citizens like we all became citizens. But there’s some people coming across there border that are not coming over here to get jobs, they’re coming to kill you, you, and you. And they’re going to take this country over. And we, you know what I’m talking about. And we better start talking about it.
To prove that he is practically deadweight on the issue of the National Question, Tuberville suggested that people “back off” legal migration and focus solely on illegal immigration (when both issues should actually be addressed simultaneously if we’re serious about tackling immigration).
“I think we should back off of it right now,” Tuberville declared. “You know, we’re all immigrants but we’ve just got to get a handle on it and I would like to see us slow it all down–bring it to a point where we can control it, get all this stuff under control, get our education system under control because I’ve talked to people in this state, superintendents that have said, ‘Hey listen: They are dropping off these young kids here that are here illegally, and they want us to educate them, and they can’t read or write.”
According to Tuberville’s campaign website, securing the border is one of his main focuses. But this is only half the battle. The migrant waves entering the country legally will inevitably turn solid red states like Texas and Arizona blue thanks to changing demographics, thus relegating the GOP to a regional party status. These trends show the necessity of having a moratorium in place in order to prevent Democrats from turning the U.S. into a one-party state.
As far as political correctness is concerned, Tuberville is as pusillanimous as it gets. While Tuberville was head coach of the University of Mississippi football team, he supported banning the Confederate Battle Flag, basically buying into the cultural Left’s agenda in trying to destroy artifacts of American history.
Trump has hired people like Nikki Haley while also taking advice from the likes of establishment critters like Lindsey Graham, who have openly talked smack about the president in the past. Sadly, the president is now exercising a petty grudge against Sessions, who despite his faults, actually cares about advancing Trump’s policy points.
I also cannot in good conscience support Donald Trump because I do not believe he is a reliable Republican conservative….(4)

…..do not believe he is a reliable GOP conservative nor has he displayed the judgment and temperament to serve as Commander in Chief. (5)

At the very least, Trump could have remained neutral in the primary and have taken a “let the best man win approach” and work to restore his relationship with Sessions should he win.
But in throwing his support behind Tuberville, Trump is conceding power to the Swamp and effectively derailing his immigration agenda. Trump is no dictator and he will need all the legislative help he can get in order to pass real immigration reforms. Tuberville is a total zero on the issue and will only make Trump’s life even more difficult.
On immigration, Trump cannot afford to have legislators who do not comprehend the full extent of America’s immigration crisis.
