AG Jeff Sessions: “People are not going to stampede our border”

Trump administration “sending a message worldwide”

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Wednesday the Justice Department will send 35 prosecutors and 18 judges to the southern U.S. border to bolster efforts to prosecute foreign nationals entering the U.S. illegally. Some of these illegals have previously been deported and are reentering the U.S.

Among the assistant attorneys dispatched to the border, 15 will be allocated to Texas, eight to California, six to Arizona and six to New Mexico. Immigration judges will be deployed to adjudicate cases in courts along the U.S-Mexico border in parts of the same states.

Eloy and Florence Arizona will each have immigration courts.

“The American people made very clear their desire to secure our borders and prioritize the public safety and national security of our homeland,” Sessions said in this statement. “Promoting and enforcing the rule of law is essential to our republic. By deploying these additional resources to the Southwest border, the Justice Department and the Trump Administration take yet another step in protecting our nation, its borders, and its citizens. It must be clear that there is no right to demand entry without justification.”

Unveiling the measure at the DOJ, Sessions specifically pointed to a caravan of illegals from Central America — notably Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador — claiming to seek asylum. The caravan, which made its way through Mexico in recent months, was part of the impetus behind the decision to prosecute violators. They made no effort to stay in Mexico, where they speak the same language and have similar customs.

“We are not going to let this country be overwhelmed,” Sessions said. “People are not going caravan or otherwise stampede our border. We need legality and integrity in the system. People should wait their turn, ask to apply lawfully before they enter our country. So we’re sending a message worldwide.”

 In a welcome move, the Trump administration has cracked down on illegal border crossings, with Sessions unveiling charges against 11 caravan members on Monday as they arrived at the Tijuana/San Diego border. Exhibiting their desire to be good citizens, illegals were openly rebelling against the laws of the country they hoped to enter by defiantly scaling the border wall.

    Jeff Sessions is absolutely right! I like the language he used in describing the illegals, referring to them as them as “stampeding” across our border and clearly stating that we are sending out a message to the world that we will not tolerate this anymore. I have become more and more enthused with President Trump and his cabinet appointees. He’s also done well with filling federal judicial vacancies.

  2. MacBeth says:

    I couldn’t be happier! Jeff Sessions is right on the money with his statement and actions. Donald Trump is fulfilling his promise to secure the border. We should all be grateful!

    Back in the day, down in Alabama–in some circles—Jeff Sessions was known as “the silent executioner”.
    Never underestimate. The Plan remains in place.

    Today is the National Day of Prayer.
    Have we forgotten?

    Please keep in your prayers all the children who have been kidnapped; trafficked; suffering, enslaved.
    And those who have been murdered because of the depravity of others..
    You have NO idea.

    No administration has even come close to what Trump/Sessions are doing with our border security since the beginning of the invasion by millions from all over the world starting in the 80s. Eisenhower nipped it in the bud for a while, but since then administration after administration ignored the problem while Ted Kennedy, John McCain, et al fought to keep them coming. For 20 years, it’s been said there are “11 million” illegal aliens in the country. Do they think we’re stupid? I think they do. Trump and Sessions are doing what the people want – for a change. I heard on the radio that there were Somalis in that caravan that was headed north. We have no idea who those border crashers are – only that some were waving the flag of Honduras. What a joke!

    Update: Romaine Lettuce—the rampage worsens.

    Alleged source: Harrison Farms, Yuma

    Feds did Not require the grower to issue a recall.

    Allegedly, the romaine lettuce fields are now growing grass.

    Between the months of November and March, 90% of lettuce comes from Yuma.

    Now, One death in California confirmed.

    Now: 25 States
    52 persons hospitalized, with 14 diagnosed with kidney failure due to the Shiga toxin component of the E-coli bacteria strain O157:H7

    This Shiga toxin is so potent that DHS lists it as a potential agent for biological warfare.

    Shiga toxin binds itself to white blood cells and makes its way into the kidneys, where it destroys cells. Cell death in the kidneys activates red blood cells to hurry to the kidneys, which causes blood clots which leads to organ failure.

    Got this email today. Soros working FOR illegals:
    “Glenn Beck exposed this today. This app was funded by Soros & OUR TAX DOLLARS!
    $200,000. Glenn said, “We can’t fund the Wall because we spent the money on this app.” Open this. So organized. I feel, we are losing this battle.

    Your congratulations to Jeff Sessions sounds nice but you seem to forget that he has sat on his behind though all of the other investigations. Now that he has something that will not get any of his old congressional associates into trouble he comes out swinging. Sessions has been a big disappointment so far. Let us wait to see how far he goes in this before we pat him on the back. If he get heat from his friends, he may recuse himself from this as well.

      I am frustrated with Jeff Sessions. People keep saying he’s accomplishing things behind the scenes. Well, I don’t think we’d have this Mueller nightmare if it weren’t for Sessions. I hope he’s really doing something positive regarding illegal immigration, but here’s two headlines on Drudge this morning:

      Caravan migrants allowed in rises to 158…
      Illegal immigration up 233% on border…
