Sessions outlines border enforcement plan
Speaking from the Arizona-Mexico border, Sessions added that, "starting today", undocumented immigrants who attempt to re-enter the country after being deported will face felony charges if "certain aggravating circumstances are present". In his Nogales speech, Sessions stressed the dangers of criminal gangs, whose members he said "turn cities and suburbs into war zones", "rape and kill innocent citizens" and profit from trafficking people across the border. "It is here, on this sliver of land, where we first take our stand".
Jeff Sessions, an immigration hard-liner, delivered a chilling speech at the US-Mexico border.
Sessions also said that 25 immigration judges have been sent to adjudicate deportation cases at Homeland Security Department detention centers on the border. "We must follow up on the successes we've had so far, and here on the border, we will do so", Sessions said.
The guidance issued by Mr. Sessions orders federal prosecutors to prioritize criminal charges against illegal immigrants with a history of prior removals or other criminal convictions as well as charges against those who aid in the smuggling of illegal immigrants into the United States. They made up more than half of all federal prosecutions in fiscal year 2016, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
Between September 2015 through September 2016, 52 percent of all federal prosecutions in the USA were for immigration violations.

Sessions' tour of the border was part of a day-long trip to Arizona that also included stops in Litchfield Park, Ariz. and Luke Air Force Base Tuesday afternoon, where Sessions spoke to law enforcement and military personnel.
Sessions echoed President Trump's repeated campaign criticism that Obama did not do enough to secure the border.
Sessions answered just a few questions from reporters after he discussed about tougher approaches to handle undocumented immigrants at the border. He proposed felony prosecution for people with two or more prior misdemeanor convictions for improperly entering the USA, and he ordered prosecutors to get tougher on those who re-enter the country after being deported or who are found guilty of identity theft. He told border control agents the Trump administration would crack down on immigration crimes and direct new funding to border control efforts.
Make prosecution of assault on a federal law-enforcement officer "a top priority".
He said his deputies are glad to work with the federal government but working as immigration officers is not an option.
