Atty. Gen. Sessions Vows to Prosecute All Who Illegally Cross Border

US to tighten border rules and separate children from parents

The remarks were published on the department's website as Sessions prepares to hold a news conference in San Diego with Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan.

"If you cross this border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you. We need legality and integrity in our immigration system".

"That's why the Department of Homeland Security is now referring 100 percent of illegal southwest border crossings to the Department of Justice for prosecution, and the Department of Justice will take up these cases".

By prosecuting adults attempting to cross the border and then treating their children as unaccompanied minors, families would be separated as children are placed in shelters or with family while their cases for asylum are reviewed. "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border".

Last week, Sessions announced that the Justice Department was sending 35 assistant US attorneys to the southwestern border to to "prosecute illegal entries into our country", while 18 immigration judges would focus "full time" on clearing a backlog of asylum claims. If you help others do so, that's a felony also.

Cybersecurity uncharted territory, risks to get worse: Warren Buffett
Last week, the so-called "Oracle of Omaha" argued that investing in bitcoin is a gamble, not an investment. It actually led Berkshire to a net loss in the quarter, even though operating profit climbed.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen viewed Calexico's replacement border barrier project on April 18.

On Monday, Sessions said the Trump administration's actions were necessary because of "massive increases in illegal crossings in recent months".

The conference comes a week after a group of Central American asylum seekers arrived at the USA border in Tijuana.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions gestures as he speaks at the California Peace Officers' Association 26th Annual Law Enforcement Legislative Day on March 7, 2018, in Sacramento. "The United States will not stand by as our immigration laws are ignored and our nation's safety is jeopardized".
