Hawaii Lawmakers Fire Back at Sessions for ‘Island in the Pacific’ Comment
Hawaii's two Democratic senators fired back at Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday for saying that a federal judge who blocked President Donald Trump's immigration order hailed from "an island in the Pacific."
"The suggestion that being from Hawaii somehow disqualifies Judge Watson from performing his Constitutional duty is dangerous, ignorant, and prejudiced.
I am frankly dumbfounded that our nation's top lawyer would attack our independent judiciary.
But we shouldn't be surprised," Sen. Mazie Hirono said in a statement.
