Crackdown: AG Sessions Vows ‘New Era’ at Southern Border

Attorney General Jeff Sessions broke from his tour of the U.S.-Mexico border Tuesday to announce his Justice Department’s sweeping plans for securing the border.

“For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era,” Sessions told the crowd of Customs and Border Protection personnel in the border town of Nogales, Arizona. “We hear you and we have your back!” he assured them.

Sessions proceeded to lay out a multifaceted plan to stop illegal aliens entering the country. All adults apprehended at the border are to be detained and at least 125 additional immigration judges are to be appointed and put in the field on an expedited basis. Twenty-five immigration judges have already been deployed to detention centers along the border to help alleviate the massive backlog of cases already piled up there.

Accompanying the address, the Attorney General’s Office issued a memorandum to all US Attorney’s offices, instructing them on dramatically stricter prosecution guidelines for immigration offenses: all repeat illegal entry offenders are to be referred for felony prosecution; all cases in which an illegal alien is caught reentering the United States after removal are now to be considered for felony prosecution, with priority given to those with other criminal records or gang affiliations; prosecuting those caught transporting three or more illegal aliens will now be a priority; illegal aliens and their smugglers caught with fraudulent documentation, as they often are, are to be charged with aggravated identity theft; and prosecuting any assault on federal law enforcement, included CBP personnel, is to be a “top priority.”

    The first elected official prosecuted under the existing federal statute
    (Title 8 U.S. Code § 1324 – Bringing in and harboring certain aliens) should stop the numbskulls from “sucking eggs”. Big mouth politicians facing a little jail time for their misdeeds tend to see the error of their ways.

  • dmttbt says:

    It is way past time that the laws started to be enforced. We know how to secure a border, we have choppers and K-9 units and we should make it legal to shoot anyone trying to come across the border.

    Just hope he gets tough with these avowed sanctuary cities and states like CA.

    1. dmttbt says:

      Amen isn’t it ridiculous that we have cities and campuses that do not obey the immigration laws and at the same time are getting money from tax payers who are losing jobs due to immigration not being enforced?

  • Oldawg70 says:

    Deport or imprison every illegal immigrant…period! Prosecute each and every public official that aides, abets or refuses to uphold the law… We would have to build another “special” prison for the ones in California alone…first on the list is the scumbag Moonbeam Brown! Enough already!

    1. dmttbt says:

      I could not agree more. When people say that they haven’t broken any laws and they are in this country illegally I don’t see why they don’t consider illegal immigration as a crime when it is.

      1. Oldawg70 says:

        Well DM…I personally feel that once classified as an “illegal immigrant” there should be no second chance! We have an immigration policy/system that is both reasonable and fair for all…abide by it or stay out! Too many indoctrinated snowflakes in this country, and honestly we are to blame for allowing it to happen!

  • justinwachin says:

    Thank you AG Sessions and President Trump. Increased prosecution may go a long way in ending illegal immigration. As word gets out that a person is wasting their time trying to sneak into the United States these people will hopefully find something productive to do with their time in their home country.

  • mudguy1 says:

    Enforce E-verify in All states and find and deport ALL who have over stayed their Visa.

  • Leslie Woodhull says:

    About DAMN TIME!!!

  • MarcusAurelius45 says:

    Thank you Attorney General Sessions for your courageous and assertive efforts to stem and correct illegal immigration. National mandated E-Verify and the criminal and civil prosecution of employers who knowingly employ illegals should, also, be implemented. Of course, because the same would require US Congressional approval, the same might be difficult to implement because of the various political and economic entities which favor cheap and servile illegal immigrant labor.

      Great idea. I was saying put in a concertina wire fence with very high voltage and picture signs and then on our side put claymore mines operated by motion sensors. Those mines are in case someone gets over or under the fence with the high voltage.

  • Pat Cross says:

    We already have a wall, and they are very well-armed, too………..the US military stationed north of the border! If those DC idiots would actually use the “wall,” illegals would think twice after one of them gets killed by an RPG

    1. PatriotGal says:

      Pat, only in some places. We need it to be continuous where there is no natural prohibitive. (That way the “non existent” jaguars the animal rights folks are screaming about will have access LOL). But we do need more added to what we have and arm it both technologically and with military, armed with weapons.

      1. McFerguson says:

        Yes, we’ve always had the wherewithal, the technology to do what was needed to stop the influx of ILLEGALS. But seldom did we have the will. Jeff Sessions, the new AG, following the Trumpster’s lead is precisely right in his approach.

  • James Maxwell says:

    Why is it that Criminal cross our borders and have access to the legal system
    to try and bypass our immigration laws? Regardless of the reason they
    try to give they violated our borders, committed a crime when the did so
    and should be arrested, returned to their home country after being
    fingerprinted, photographed and a DNA sample take for future reference.
    No court action required, only immediate deportation and a warning that
    any future attempts to enter ILLEGALLY will result in jail time and being
    denied any possible chance of immigrating here in a legal and lawful

    1. Deb Sunshine Hanna says:

      Jail time should entail “hard” time. The taxpayers should not be responsible for housing them or feeding them. No more resort prisons. Prison means nothing for criminals anymore. It is time to go back to when prison is somewhere you don’t want to be.

  • William Peterseim says:

    Praise God for a righteous Attorney General! We haven’t had one in, oh, let’s see….uh Gun running to pin it on innocent American gun owners to try to justify taking their legal weapons…but in the process, giving full auto’s to Mexican drug cartel members who use them to kill innocents, including a U.S. officer….that would be Obama’s #1 choice Eric Holder who, rather than be prosecuted as justice would dictate,instead lands a cushy job, typically over paid, with other Democrats; justice, American-Democrat style; and then the replacement who flies hundreds of miles out of here way to meet privately with the former President whose crimes against America make Nixon look like a Sunday School Teacher….Bill Clinton who was only spared conviction on his Impeachment by Republicans not wanting Al Gore in office for even 5 minutes but who should’ve been impeached for Treason and espionage, convicted, and likely executed. We executed the Rosenbergs who, compared to Bill Clinton, were minor players in transferring nuclear secrets to our enemies. But then, Bill, like his bride, only committed their crimes….for personal WEALTH. Good going Mr. Sessions. When you get a chance…soon, please prosecute the heck out of Hillary or, I predict, she will be back with a vengeance. Her kind never learns, especially when there’s still a buck to be made. Investigate that bogus “Foundation” and all involved.

    1. McFerguson says:

      Excellent post, Mr. Peterseim, and I couldn’t agree more with your assessment of our new AG, Jeff Sessions. Finally, we have an AG that understands and appreciates the ‘Rule of Law.’ Obozo’s renegade administration and the dufus Eric Holder operated as they do in a Banana Republic – enforce the laws that benefit your agenda; ignore all others and create new ones out of whole cloth.
