President Donald Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates on Monday night, just hours after she announced the Justice Department would not defend Trump’s executive order banning temporarily all refugees, as well as all citizens, from the seven Muslim-majority nations Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Trump had asked her to serve as acting attorney general until the Senate confirmed his close Sen. Jeff Sessions, defined by the Washington Post the “intellectual godfather” of Trump’s anti-constitutional Muslim ban.

“Jeff Sessions is a racist and an Islamophobe. He must not be our next Attorney General,” said retired Colonel Ann Wright as she was arrested and roughly dragged out of the Senate Judiciary Committee today.

NAACP President Cornell Brooks was arrested twice at the office of Jeff Sessions in Georgia.
