AG Sessions Pledges 'New Era' of Stiffer Penalties for Some Illegal Immigrants

Trump said during the campaign that Mexico was sending criminals and rapists into the USA, and called for building a wall along the border, which he said Mexico would pay for.

It is here, on this sliver of land, where we take our stand against this filth.

The Wall Street Journal's transcript of the speech included a slightly different version of the above line, saying: "it is here on this very sliver of land where we take our stand against this filth." .

Sessions said he was issuing a memo mandating prosecutors to prioritize immigration enforcement on offenses that were not "prosecuted in the past".

Trump and May hope to persuade Russian Federation to drop Assad support
In that interview airing Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation", Tillerson said Russians were not targeted by the strikes. He knocked the Obama administration for not responding to Assad's chlorine gas attacks after the deal was in place.

As if that hasn't been made clear already.

In fact, every US attorney's office in the country is now required to assign someone as "border security coordinator". The attorney general outlined his new directives for federal prosecutors to prioritize litigation against undocumented immigrants who enter and live in the US and those who aid them. He added that "it is here that criminal aliens and the coyotes and the document-forgers seek to overthrow our system of lawful immigration".

"We hear you, and we have your back", Sessions said Tuesday.

The transportation or harboring of aliens.

Malala Yousafzai becomes youngest ever UN Messenger of Peace
Yousafzai is the youngest UN Messenger of Peace and the first one named by Guterres since he assumed office in January. In 2012 Ms Yousafzai was almost killed by the Taliban for campaigning for girls' rights to education.

"We are going to shut down and jail those who have been profiting off this lawlessness", Sessions said but added no details on how that might happen. Half of federal arrests in 2014 were for immigration-related offenses, according to a Pew Research analysis released this week. She said Sessions' message made it sound like everyone entering the US from Mexico is doing so illegally. In his testimony before congress last November, former Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan said that assaults on his officers a year ago increased 200 percent.

Marijuana arrests also have dropped in the area by about 28 percent, from 1 million pounds in 2012 to 728,000 a year ago. In 2007, however, seven officers were killed. Immigration experts note that the surge in border crossings the USA experienced in recent years came as a result of people, including hordes of unaccompanied minors, fleeing violence in their home countries.

U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Arizona, said in a written statement that Sessions' announcement "continues the intentional and systematic effort by this administration to criminalize immigrants, painting entire communities as guilty until proven innocent for actions that aren't even crimes".

He referred to the southwest border as "ground zero" in the fight against "transnational gangs like MS-13 and worldwide cartels [that] flood our country with drugs and leave death and violence in their wake". Depravity and violence are their calling cards, including brutal machete attacks and beheadings.

Kushner omits contacts with Russian officials in application for security clearance
Gary Cohn, the president's economic adviser and former No. 2 at Goldman Sachs, is on the list as well, according to the site. The Trumpcare debacle is its biggest stain and the president is said to hold Priebus partially responsible for its failure.

Sessions also stated that illegal crossings have dropped a whopping 72 percent since Trump was inaugurated. He also said that the civil rights of the people - who are charged with criminal offences at the border - will be protected. He didn't elaborate further. USA attorneys will now be required to consider prosecution for each. "We want everyone to comply with the law", Sessions said.
