U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recently announced huge changes in handling undocumented migrants. Sessions’ announcement will most likely put an end to Obama’s legacy.
“For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era. The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws and the catch and release practices of old are over,” noted the Attorney General.
As far as concrete actions are concerned, Sessions is allowing prosecutors to be harsh with more felony charges, but to target those who have gang affiliations first.
Jeff Sessions declared that federal prosecutors are mandated to contemplate for felony charges those who transport or shelter undocumented migrants, and undocumented aliens who try to re-enter the U.S. after deportation, particularly those who already have criminal records or are known gang members. A memorandum signed on Tuesday shows that prosecutors should, where possible, indict illegals “with document fraud and aggravated identity theft — the latter carrying a two-year mandatory minimum sentence.”
Jeff stated that the focus will be on weakening and breaking apart the known criminal gangs that include illegal aliens, like MS-13, who have committed numerous crimes.
“When we talk about MS-13 and the cartels, what do we mean? We mean criminal organizations that turn cities and suburbs into warzones, that rape and kill innocent citizens and who profit by smuggling poison and other human beings across our borders. Depravity and violence are their calling cards, including brutal machete attacks and beheadings,”
Sessions also assured the border patrol that he has their back and that every assault on border patrol agents will be considered a priority.
