Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been the subject of much controversy.
But he has remained in his job because of his laser like focus on implementing Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration.
And Sessions cheered Trump supporters up when he stepped up to the plate and delivered the news everyone was waiting for.
Donald Trump has done everything in his power to stem the tide of illegal immigration.
Sessions took aim at illegal aliens who wield their children as human shields to sneak into the country.
The Attorney General announced the administration would not fall prey to this practice.
Sessions declared that the parents would be prosecuted and separated from their children.
NBC News reports:
“Adults charged with illegal entry will be turned over to U.S. marshals and sent directly to federal court. Their children will be transferred to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, part of the Department of Health and Human Services, which refers them to relatives in the U.S. or to shelters run by private organizations.
The Department of Homeland Security says 700 children have been separated from their parents since the fiscal year began last October.
A first conviction for illegal entry carries a maximum jail term of six months.
DHS officials said adults have been separated from children in the past if border officers could not be certain that they were actually the parents of the children accompanying them or if the adults were prosecuted for a crime.”
Democrats would love a flood of illegal aliens into America.
Liberals hope a crush of illegal immigration will generate a critical mass of pressure that will force Republicans to accept amnesty.
Donald Trump was elected largely because he favored strongly cracking down on illegal immigration.
Sessions’ announcement that the administration is ramping up the prosecution of illegal alien adults and separating them from their children will turn off one of the magnets that attracts illegal aliens.
And it demonstrates that Trump intends to put America First in deeds as well as rhetoric.
