Attorney General Jeff Sessions attends conference in Atlanta

Posted June 6

— U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke at a law enforcement forum in downtown Atlanta Tuesday morning.

Sessions and other featured speakers spoke at the National Law Enforcement Conference on Human Exploitation at the Sheraton in downtown Atlanta.

Sessions' visit comes amid a rift with President Donald Trump, who sent a series of tweets early Monday morning blaming the Justice Department for its defense of the travel ban. The tweets accuse the department of submitting a "politically correct" version of the ban.

Sessions and the Justice Department did not respond to the president's tweets.
