Homeland security chief not on board with Trump administration's anti-marijuana stance
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that the number of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S. -Mexico border has "dropped off precipitously" by nearly 70%.
Kelly cited meth, heroin and cocaine as the three main drugs that have played a role in the US drug crisis, leading to the over 52,000 deaths in 2015.
"They're just waiting to see what actually does happen", he added.
Trump made a crackdown on immigration a cornerstone of his presidential campaign, focusing on both the deportation of undocumented immigrants and the construction of a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.
Kelly discussed North Korea, immigration enforcement, Mexico, and was touching on the war on drugs when Todd went out on a limb and asked the DHS Secretary whether legalizing cannabis stateside would help or hurt his work at the border.
Sessions said the "lawlessness, the abdication of duty to enforce our laws, and the catch-and-release policies of the past are over", he said. There are people who came here as children. And that is to execute and uphold the nation's laws. "Fifty-two thousand Americans: You can't put a price on the human misery".
Lewis Hamilton coasts to fifth title at Chinese Grand Prix
Fernando Alonso joined his McLaren Honda team-mate on the sidelines on lap 34 when he had a driveshaft issue. That gave Hamilton the ability to retain the lead and hold off the pack for the remainder of the race.
That's the blunt assessment of Department of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly, speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press" yesterday. "President Trump has recognized this and taken it on". But there are 11 million people and it's very complicated.
Homeland Security Chief John Kelly is interviewed by Chuck Todd (r.)..). And we're operating more or less at the other end of the spectrum, and that is criminals, multiple convictions.
Kelly said drug traffickers struggled to launder their profits from the drug trade, not smuggle it into the U.S. He cited drug cartels' influence, through violence, over their governments in Latin American countries as a forefront issue, arguing that corruption leads to smuggled goods in the U.S.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said last week that 16,600 individuals were apprehended or stopped from entering the US from Mexico last month, a 64% decrease from March 2016. Anyone can be ticketed or arrested for smoking marijuana in federal parks, after which they would be transferred over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.
'There is a plan to hire 10,000 new ICE agents, 5,000 new border patrol agents - what do you call this if not a deportation force?' asked Todd.
