    “November Rain”: Antitrust Enforcement on Behalf of American Consumers and Taxpayers


    Good morning, and thank you for the kind introduction. I’d like to thank the American Bar Association for your invitation to this year’s Fall Forum and Deb Garza for her leadership of the Section this year. I find it hard to believe it’s been only a little more than a year since I was confirmed as AAG and spoke at last year’s Fall Forum. Over the past year, the Antitrust Division has been hard at work on behalf of American consumers. ...

    "This is the land of the free because it is the home of the brave," Acting Attorney General Whitaker said. "At the Department of Justice, we recognize that our rights depend upon public safety.

I hope that all Americans will join me in thanking a veteran today and honoring their heroic service not just today but every day."

    Acting Attorney General Whitaker Statement On Presidential Proclamation




    (November 9, 2018) - - After President Trump’s Presidential Proclamation regarding the Southwest Border, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker issued the following statement of strong support: "Our southern border is in crisis. The hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who have unlawfully crossed our border are posing a significant threat to the government’s ability to effectively enforce our nation’s immigration laws. Plain and simple, there are too many loopholes in our current immigration system. The vast majority of asylum claims that originated from this system are not meritorious. What’s worse, large numbers of aliens fail to even pursue their claims in court and many fail to appear for their court hearings. “Today, the President has made a strong statement that enough is enough.

    Attorney General Sessions Issues Statement on Judicial Ruling Declaring California Senate Bill 50 Unconstitutional




    (November 2, 2018) - - On this date, the United States Department of Justice published the following information: Today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued the following statement regarding the court’s ruling in the Eastern District of California declaring California Senate Bill 50 (SB 50) unconstitutional: “The court’s ruling is a firm rejection of California’s assertion that, by legislation, it could dictate how and when the federal government sells federal land. This was a stunning assertion of constitutional power by California, and it was properly and promptly dismissed by the district judge. It is unfortunate that, in the interim, California forced both the Justice Department and the court to spend valuable time and resources to dispose of its baseless...

    Attorney General Sessions Delivered the Following Statement About Today’s Tragedy in Pittsburgh




    (October 27, 2018) - - Attorney General Sessions today issued the following statement on the horrific tragedy in Pittsburgh: “Hatred and violence on the basis of religion can have no place in our society,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said. “Every American has the right to attend their house of worship in safety. Today 11 innocent people were suddenly and viciously murdered during religious services and several law enforcement officers were shot. These alleged crimes are reprehensible and utterly repugnant to the values of this nation. Accordingly, the Department of Justice will file hate crimes and other criminal charges against the defendant, including charges that could lead to the death penalty. “It has been an important week for us to show gratitude for the hard work of ou...

    Statement by Attorney General Sessions Supporting Proposed Legislation to Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Drone technology, one of the latest of these inventions, promises to strengthen us economically by creating American jobs and transforming American industry. Unfortunately, however, this new tool can also be used to wreak havoc by criminals, terrorists and other bad actors. That is why the Trump administration has worked on legal reforms to enable law-abiding people to use this technology for good while protecting them from those who would u...

    ~ Wednesday, August 8, 2018



    Remarks as prepared for delivery Thank you all for being here. On behalf of the President of the United States, Donald Trump, I want to thank all of you for your work for and commitment to religious freedom at such a time as this. As President Trump said to the National Prayer Breakfast last year, “freedom of religion is a sacred right, but it is also…under threat all around us…I’ve never seen it so openly [threatened].” This is a problem around the world. In the Middle East, some religious minorities like the Yazidis and Christians, after centuries of coexistence with religious majorities, are facing the possibility of extinction. In Russia, it is ill

    Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein Delivers Remarks at the 2018 American Bar Association Annual Meeting


    Chicago, IL - - (August 2, 2018)

    Remarks as prepared for delivery Thank you for that kind introduction, Hilarie, and congratulations on your successful tenure as president of the American Bar Association. The ABA is a diverse organization. Not all of its objectives are universally shared. But lawyers should be united in the goal of “advancing the rule of law throughout the United States and around the world.” There is a story about two police officers who pull over a car for a traffic stop. One officer walks to the driver’s side while his partner stands behind the car. As the first officer approaches, the driver rolls down the window and leans out, shaking his fist. “Do you know who I am? Do you know who I am!?” The second officer hears the ruckus and calls out, “
