Sessions may as well hang it up. With so many influential groups opposed to his confirmation by the Senate it has become clear that he is not the one they want to become the next Attorney General. Trump would do well to withdraw his name from nomination and go with someone else less controversial.

"You have a nominee for Attorney General who has demonstrated a disregard for voter suppression," Brooks said. "He supports the myth of voter fraud. That is unacceptable."

 

"The arrests come as a group of 1,140 faculty members from law schools around the country has penned a letter opposing Donald Trump's pick for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions, citing questions that have been raised about his civil rights record."

 

"The note also says some of the lawyers, from 171 law schools, have issues with Sessions’ policy positions, including his support for a wall along the southern border with Mexico, support for what they call “regressive drug policies" and opposition to efforts to block legal protections for the LGBT community."

With all branches of government now in the hands of Republicans, continuing, peaceful protest will be one of the major ways to influence policy. The courageous actions these protestors are in the avant-garde of what is to come.
