US Attorney General Jeff Sessions in San Diego

Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Visit US-Mexico Border in San Diego

A person stopped by the border patrol and referred to a federal court to face charges is taken to jail by the U.S. Marshals Service and any of their children traveling with them are placed in government custody, with the Office of Refugee Resettlement, Sessions said.

The Trump administration will increase criminal prosecutions of parents entering the United States illegally and place their children in protective custody, stepping up efforts to tighten immigration enforcement, USA officials said on Monday.

"If you cross this border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you". "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border". "If you don't want your child to be separated, then don't bring them across the border illegally".

Sessions' call for tougher immigration enforcement came a week after the caravan, with fewer than 200 migrants, arrived at the US border in Tijuana following a roughly month-long trek through Mexico. "Attorney General Sessions continues to abuse his authority to expedite removals and deprive detained immigrants of legal counseling and due process, which further highlights this administration's hostility towards immigrant communities".

President Donald Trump described the caravan as proof that more must be done to secure the border with Mexico, including building a wall, while Sessions called it "a deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system".

The singer even left an inspirational note in the fan's journal after promising her a seat at a concert once she's able. Swift brought shirts and sweatshirts from her tour , signed autographs and stayed for about 20 minutes.

"I have no doubt that many of those crossing our border illegally are leaving hard situations", Sessions said. "But we can not take everyone on this planet who is in a hard situation".

Thirty-five federal prosecutors and 18 immigration judges have been re-directed to the border to handle immigration cases.

Sessions' trip marked the fourth time a high-ranking Trump official has visited the California-Mexico border region in recent months.

"I have put in place a "zero tolerance" policy for illegal entry on our Southwest border", he said.
