Sen. [crscore]Jeff Sessions[/crscore] called on Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch to condemn the violence that occurred outside Donald Trump’s rally in Albuquerque on Tuesday.
“People were having a peaceful assembly, exercising free speech on critically important issues for America, and we cannot allow this kind of violence to intimidate us from discussing important national issues,” Sessions said Wednesday in an interview with radio host Laura Ingraham.

Ingraham said, “Sen. Sessions, what it what you were reaction to this violence last night in Albuquerque, N.M.? New Mexico has a very large immigrant population, including a very large illegal immigrant population, and I don’t call them protesters — these are criminals because of what they were doing. They injured police officers. They were throwing a water bottles, hit someone in a wheelchair with a water bottle and intimidating people just trying to walk into a rally in and be part in an event.” (Watch Trump’s Rally in New Mexico Here)
“These are good American citizens that came to this rally that support Donald Trump,” said Sessions, who was the first senator to endorse Trump. “They’re not asking for anything that’s unreasonable. They’re not even asking for anything that’s radical. They’re simply saying, ‘Let’s end the lawlessness at our border. Let’s make sure that people who apply get evaluated as to whether or not they get in and people who don’t wait in line don’t get to come in illegally.'”
“I just can’t imagine this kind of reaction, and I hope it will be condemned by President Obama and Attorney General [Loretta] Lynch, and Hillary Clinton. They should condemn this,” Sessions insisted. “People were having a peaceful assembly, exercising free speech on critically important issues for America, and we cannot allow this kind of violence to intimidate us from discussing important national issues.”
