HNewsWire Commentary-Atty. Gen. Sessions has been all but missing in action throughout the early days of the Trump White House. I find it Interesting that Mr. Sessions has found a reason ( 10 million+ illegals ) to get tough on the immigrants that come into the United States illegally. There will be resistance to this get tough on the immigrant problem, time will tell if our Atty. Gen. holds his mud long enough to turn what is now a free-for-all in terms of our immigration policies.
This morning, Attorney General Jeff Sessions visited the US-Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona, to announce a new get-tough approach to immigration enforcement, directing federal prosecutors to pursue harsher charges against undocumented immigrants. “For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country,” Sessions said, “be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era.”
On Friday Jeff Sessions ordered federal prosecutors to take a “zero tolerance policy” toward illegal immigrants nabbed at the U.S.-Mexico border, saying they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent possible.
U.S. attorneys in Arizona, New Mexico, southern California and southern and west Texas were told to prosecute every person Homeland Security officers and agents catch attempting to enter the U.S. illegally, “to the extent practicable.”
“You are on the front lines of this battle,” Mr. Sessions said in a memo to the prosecutors.
This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
