U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he wasn’t “shedding tears” over the recent ICE raid on a meatpacking plant in Grainger County, Knoxnews reports. Sessions delivered remarks today at the Law Enforcement Training Conference in Gatlinburg, where he was introduced by U.S. District Attorney Doug Overbey. While speaking about undocumented immigrants during his 25-minute speech, Sessions also complained about the plant hiring undocumented workers, although critics of the raid pointed out that the plant has not faced any consequences for its role.
