Sessions unveils 'zero tolerance' policy at southern border

Sessions unveils 'zero tolerance' policy at southern border”

But he said immigration authorities have long separated families if they have reason to doubt the relationship or if parent is prosecuted.

The attorney general said he hoped Monday's decision broadcasts a similar message about the Trump administration's aim to crack down on illegal immigration.

Sessions, who as attorney general has been especially aggressive on immigration, said that to carry out the new enforcement policies, he was sending 35 prosecutors to the Southwest and 18 immigration judges to the border to handle asylum claims. "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border". -Mexican border illegally, adding "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border". Migrants with more than a dozen deportations on their records are not unusual.

Charged adults will be sent directly to federal court.

Sessions noted that a failure to enforce immigration laws would be an affront to law-abiding Americans. We will put you in jail.

Moreover, people who cited unsafe living conditions in their native countries were sent to immigration centers, instead of being criminally prosecuted. There exists an annual, spring/summer uptick in unlawful entries.

Many of the Central American migrants who traveled together to the southern border via caravan over the last month expected to face a similar process.

The new policy closes the catch and release loophole by detaining the parents while their children are placed in safe homes by the Department of Health and Human Services.

He said "11 million people are already here illegally".

"We don't want to separate families, but we don't want families to come to the border illegally and attempt to enter into this country improperly", Sessions said.

At a hearing in San Diego last week, a Trump administration lawyer did not dispute a report in The New York Times that more than 700 children had been taken from their families since October. "I have to say our goal is to have the whole world know that this border is not open".

In separate speeches - one in Scottsdale, Arizona, the other in San Diego - Sessions said the Department of Homeland Security will begin referring such cases to the Justice Department for prosecution.

The ACLU's Segura said immigration policy requires multiple approaches.

The Trump administration announced a policy of unprecedented cruelty in its persecution of immigrant families Monday. "If this is, in fact, deterring people from fleeing violence and coming here for refuge, that is an enormous problem".

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw of the Southern District of California heard arguments in a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union over what it claims is the federal government's practice of separating asylum-seeking parents and kids as a means to "deter" other families from coming here for the same goal.

"Every law-enforcement agency in this country separates parents with children when they're arrested for a crime. We are enforcing the criminal laws", Homan said.
