    *********************************

    Dumb first question from reporter - what about militarization and impacting people on the border, insulting people

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

    by IAN MASON

    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 catch and release practices of old are over,” Sessions said.

    By the beginning of next week, every US Attorney’s office is to have a “Border Security Coordinator” to help carry out the Justice Department plan. Not only will those coordinators be charged with overseeing and advising on the new guidelines, they are commanded to assemble and report statistics on their implementation.

    The Attorney General touted the 40 percent reported drop in illegal crossings at the southern border since President Donald Trump took office while unveiling the plan. “This is no accident,” he said. “This is what happens when you have a President who understands the threat, who is not afraid to publicly identify the threat and stand up to it.”

    Sessions closed by referring back to the crimes by “caught and released” illegals that captured the nation’s attention:

    "Why are we doing this? Because it is what the duly enacted laws of the United States require. I took an oath to protect this country from all enemies, foreign and domestic. How else can we look the parents and loved ones of Kate Steinle, Grant Ronnebeck, and so many others in eye and say we are doing everything possible to prevent such tragedies from ever occurring again?"

    Thank you Jean for the news story. It was a good outline by Attorney General Sessions on serious changes toward illegal immigration, including quicker removal for illegal aliens, greater penalties, and greater enforcement.

    This is a huge turn around from the so-called Obama era! I've been waiting for our new Attorney General to come out with something ........ I'm not disappointed.

    US Attorney General Jeff Sessions launches tougher border plan during Arizona stop


    By KTAR

    April 11, 2017

    PHOENIX — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday the federal government would take a more aggressive approach to immigration prosecution starting immediately.


    Sessions outlined the series of changes, which included plans to add 50 judges to immigration courts this year and 75 next year, while touring the Arizona-Mexico border with Arizona Gov. Doug
    Ducey.

    Sessions said the changes marked the start of a new era to rid American cities and the border of what he described as “filth” brought on by drug cartels.

    In a statement Sessions said, “As we speak, I am issuing a document to all federal prosecutors that mandates the prioritization of such enforcement.”


    * The transportation or harboring of aliens will be targeted. “We are going to shut down and jail those who have been profiting off this lawlessness.”


    • Anyone who unlawfully enters the country will now be charged with a felony. Currently, it is a misdemeanor.


    • Aliens that illegally re-enter the country after prior removal will be referred for felony prosecution.


    • All 94 U.S. Attorneys Offices have been directed to prioritize prosecution of anyone who assaults a federal law enforcement. “If someone dares to assault one of our folks in the line of duty, they will do federal time for it.”


    Sessions’ tour crossed mostly rough terrain along the international border in Nogales, Arizona, less than 100 miles south of Tucson.


    It was his first visit to the Mexico border as a White House cabinet member. The tourwas set for 10 a.m.


    Sessions has made immigration enforcement a prime concern for the Justice Department.


    “We need a lawful system of immigration,” Sessions said after his confirmation in February.


    “One that serves the interest of the people of the United States. That’s not wrong, that’s not immoral, that’s not indecent.”


    The former Alabama senator has said he will quicken deportations of immigrants in the country illegally who were convicted of federal crimes.


    In March, Sessions said that the Department would expand an existing program designed to hold deportation hearings for immigrants while they were in federal prison.


    Holding the hearings before the inmates’ sentences were finished would allow the government to deport them as soon as they were released, rather than waiting until they went through immigration court.


    The proposal would set up 14 federal prisons and six contract facilities for immigration removal proceedings.

    After the border stop, Sessions will visit the West Valley.

    He will address the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Litchfield Park at 1 p.m.

    After that, he will speak with service members at Luke Air Force Base near Glendale around 3:15 p.m.

    So very welcome Jean. It was great to hear the words from Attorney General Sessions today. Almost hard to believe after so many years of enabling by our government.

    I know we all are excited to finally hear what we hoped would be happening with him in charge. A good day for America with a good man looking out for us all.
