Jeff Sessions Says Immigration Laws & Border Wall Will End Family Separation

Steven Clarke | 19 June, 2018, 18:03

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions receives the National Sheriffs' Association Lifetime Achievement Award before he speaks at their convention in New Orleans, Monday, June 18, 2018.

It's up to the Secretary of Homeland Security or the attorney general to grant it, based on a determination that the migrant has proven he or she is a refugee - a person who can't return to their country because of a "well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion". "We're taking care of these children". "That's why I'm demanding that Attorney General Sessions halt the practice of family separation at the border immediately as Congress works toward legislative solutions".

A bipartisan group of more than 70 former U.S. attorneys are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reverse the Trump administration's policy of prosecuting all people who cross the border illegally, saying it is "dangerous, expensive, and inconsistent" with the values of the Justice Department.

In a Fox News interview with Laura Ingraham, Sessions blamed the border situation on legal immigration loopholes while rejecting the notion that Trump could change policy implementation if he wanted to.

Sessions argued that immigrants seeking asylum would be given due process according to the law, but he quickly pivoted to what he views as the bigger side-effect of illegal immigration to the US.

North Korea has always reacted to the Ulchi exercises with belligerence and often its own demonstrations of military capability. This would be his third visit to China, North Korea's main ally and key source of trade and economic assistance.

In some cases, Kansas lawmakers expressed discomfort but stopped short of calling on the Trump administration to stop the separations.

Instead, all 49 Democrats in the Congress signed on to a piece of legislation that would oppose the separation on Monday.

In the six weeks after Sessions announced the new policy on May 7, almost 2,000 minors were separated from their parents or adult guardians after they entered the country. Jenkins is not running for re-election. Marshall said he has empathy for the children who have been separated, and called it "terrible".

"Without him coming to Capitol Hill on Tuesday, I don't think we'd have that sort of maximum pressure, if you will, to get us across the goal line, and I anticipate on Tuesday that he's going to be the leader he is and we're going to get something passed out of the House", said McCaul, R-Texas.

He said immigration legislation set for votes in the House would end the practice.
