PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday criticized sanctuary cities that try to protect immigrants in the country illegally as places that "undermine the moral authority of the law."He made the comments a day after the Trump administration appealed a judge's ruling blocking its efforts to withhold money from the cities.Sessions, speaking to law enforcement officers in a sanctuary city in the sanctuary state of Oregon, urged officials who have decided that local police should not cooperate with federal immigration agents to reconsider those policies.As he spoke, protesters lined the streets outside the Portland field office of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

A Republican stalwart with a low-key style and reputation for caution, his decision to publicly torpedo the latest Senate GOP plan to overhaul health care raised eyebrows.Lee is a tea party favorite once willing to shut down the federal government to stymie former President Barack Obama's health care policies.After Moran and Lee announced their opposition, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell abandoned the bill and called for the Senate to repeal Obama's signature law without a replacement.Moran acknowledged in an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press from Washington that he felt "a little coolness in the air" from fellow Republicans after he opposed the plan, although he expects that to be temporary.Moran, 63, grew up in rural northwest Kansas, became a lawyer and after a stint in the state Senate, captured the seat for the sprawling and safely GOP 1st Congressional District in 1996.Moran appeared last year to buck McConnell by calling in two western Kansas town hall meetings for a hearing on Obama's last but never-considered U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland.
