Jeff Sessions Won't Apologize For Offending The Entire State Of Hawaii

"I know there's US$4 billion a year in excess payments, according to the Department of the Treasury's own inspector general several years ago, that are going to payments to people - tax credits that they shouldn't get", Sessions said. "I think it's a mistake..."

"I do believe this wall, this barrier is going to be essential in ending the illegality", continued Sessions.

The controversy over Sessions' description of Hawaii erupted on Tuesday.

He added, "I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power".

"Why not just call it the state of Hawaii?"

"Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific - a attractive one where the Attorney General's granddaughter was born", Prior said. "Please use the google".

On Friday, Sessions said that he did not mean to criticize the state and was merely "raising the point of that issue of a single judge taking such a dramatic action and the impact that it could have", he told CNN.

In response, the Department of Justice tried to walk back Sessions' remarks, saying in a statement that "Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific ― a lovely one where the Attorney General's granddaughter was born".
