“U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions promised to prosecute and separate parents who smuggle their children illegally into the United States as he revealed more details about his ‘zero-tolerance’ approach to border enforcement,” AZ Central reports.
“‘If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law,’ Sessions said. ‘If you don’t like that, then don’t smuggle children over our border.'”
“In Arizona, he unveiled his plan, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to prosecute all individuals caught crossing the border illegally, saying his Department of Justice would take as many cases ‘as humanly possible’ until they reached a 100 percent prosecution rate.”
