Sessions to tour Arizona-Mexico border Tuesday

Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks to law enforcement officers in Richmond Va. Sessions favors decades-old drug and crime-fighting strategies even as some people involved in criminal justice during that time

Trump tweeted his support of the new directive shortly after Sessions' speech in Arizona.

But when he delivered the speech in Nogales, Ariz., Sessions left off the end of the sentence and made some other tweaks.

He said he would order US attorneys across the country, not just in the border region, to designate a prosecutor in each of their offices to handle immigration crimes and related matters.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions (R) talks to Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger after his meeting March 16 with the Major Cities Chiefs of Police Association at the Justice Department in Washington, D.C. Sessions will meet with chiefs of police Tuesday after touring the U.S. -Mexico border in Arizona.

"I'm an admirer of Steve Bannon and the Trump family, and they've been supportive of what we're doing", he said.

Sessions is one of the leading forces behind Trump's immigration policy, and has always been a proponent in the Senate of hard-line immigration policies.

Sessions announced that repeat offenders at the border would be charged with a felony.

"We will now be detaining all adults who are apprehended at the border".

Announcing a new crackdown on illegal immigrants who commit crimes, Attorney General Jeff Sessions declined to use the adjective "filth" that was in his prepared text.

The Department of Justice did not provide details on how these efforts will be funded and whether there will be additional resources so the renewed focus on immigration-related enforcement on nonviolent officials will not lead to lower levels of prosecutions and investigation of other crimes.

His directives already exist under USA law, the order only "mandates" US attorneys to make such enforcement a priority.

No matter how much the Trump regime tries to spin the sunshiny smiles of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, it is Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, Steve Bannon, and Stephen Miller who represent what this administration really is at its core: white nationalism.

Sessions reiterated the necessity for a wall in order to properly police the border.

"You have individuals being caught here unlawfully who are issued notices to appear two years down the road", he said. "If you're a criminal, you will be prosecuted, and if you assault our officers, we're going to come at you [like] a ton of bricks". The illegal entry and reentry is nothing new at all. Trump said repeatedly that he would crack down on criminal organizations that help drive illegal immigration and seek to deport 2 to 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records. "All of this is long overdue".

Statistics from the last three years, however, show immigration crimes already constitute more than 50 percent of all federal criminal prosecutions. "Now is the time for action, now is the time we will have results".

"Every dollar spent on prosecuting an illegal immigrant for illegal reentry is a dollar that could have been spent on prosecuting or investigating a real real", said Alex Nowrasteh of the libertarian think tank Cato Institute.

Sessions on Tuesday issued a memorandum to federal prosecutors that calls for prioritizing "criminal immigration enforcement".

"We want to partner with the federal government as we can, but not to do immigration enforcement", Estrada said.
