Acting Attorney General Sally Yates has ordered Justice Department lawyers not to defend challenges to President Trumpís immigration order temporarily banning entry into the United States for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries and refugees from around the world, declaring in a memo Monday she is not convinced the order is lawful.

Apart from blocking the order itself, this makes Sessions' confirmation a referendum on the ban, and seriously improves the odds that he'll be rejected.

per Chris Hayes Twitter feed

So I'm hearing some very interesting things out of Alabama, where it appears @SenatorSessions has been personally calling black lawmakers urging them to come out & publicly support him. Indications are that his connection to immig EO* has he and his folks a bit nervous.

Seriously, it seems as if every department within the US government has come out against Trump in some way or another. How will this government function at all?

Oh wait.....you just said it...

You're making a huge and erroneous assumption. The world will do just fine without the troublemakers in every department.

Getting rid of deadwood is a national pastime. The world has always kept rotating.

Early on in another Presidents term, another group decided to test the waters and walk out en mass. Said President said bye bye. The same dire predictions. Nothing would get done. Planes would fall out of the sky after they hit each other. Didn't happen. In a few days the seats were filled with newbies. After a few weeks the ATC's decided they were done and ready to come back to work. Reagan said no thank you. Not an accident happened. Planes ran on time. Same thing with any government job.

Buh bye, Sally. Time to fade away into obscurity and join the Tears of Liberals movement.

I hope you are right Jimbo. I really do. Can I ask you one thing? If the Trump admin decides that they will ignore the Legislative branch if it rules that one of their EO,s is illegal, will you still feel the same?
