The following resolution was passed by the 2018 Libertarian Party National Convention:
Whereas, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions is the 84th and current Attorney General of the United
States and former Senator from Alabama.
Whereas, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions signed an order to revive civil asset forfeiture and
allow local law enforcement to ignore state law.
Whereas, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions has stated that people should “obey the laws of the
government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order” in support of separating
children of illegal immigrants.
Whereas, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions has rescinded domestic and gang violence as qualifiers for asylum seekers.
Whereas, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions supports a constitutional amendment to restrict federal recognition of marriage to only those between a man and a woman.

penalty for drug dealers.

harsh mandatory sentences for non-violent drug offenders.
Whereas, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions as Attorney General rescinded the Cole Memorandum, a Department of Justice policy to limit interference in States that have legalized marijuana.
Whereas, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions has stated “good people don’t smoke marijuana”.
Whereas, we believe that:
1.) civil asset forfeiture is an affront to the protections guaranteed to us by the Bill of Rights.
2.) an appeal to a religious deity cannot be used to justify any law.
3.) those under threat of violence from their government and those not afforded adequate
protections from their government from violence of others should be considered for asylum
protections in the United States of America.
Furthermore, we are not big fans of the DEA. We don’t endorse incarceration or death for
nonviolent crimes. We will not abide unconstitutional Federal agitation in States regarding civil
asset forfeiture or drug law. And finally, we believe… Some Good People… Smoke Marijuana.
Be it resolved, that we, the delegates to the 2018 National Convention, do condemn the U.S.
Attorney General, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, and call for his immediate removal from
