The White House has also sought to reinvigorate cooperation agreements (which became dormant during the Obama administration) with state and local officials who seek to perform the functions of, and otherwise assist, immigration officers in relation to the investigation, apprehension, and detention of illegal immigrants.
Sessions had called for immigration courts to speed up prosecutions and for the Justice Department to hire 75 more immigration judges, along with 60 more border enforcement prosecutors.

Schumer, a senator from NY, announced that he's backing a bill to give U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) more hi-tech tools to detect and seize the risky opioid fentanyl, specifically at the Mexican border.

"Instead, the Trump administration, and Mr. Sessions, are set on throwing good taxpayer money after bad on a boondoggle of a wall that will only cause greater harm to families and wildlife along the border, while failing as immigration policy".

The Tuscon Sector, which covers most of Arizona, once was considered one of the most congested areas in illegal border crossings and drug smuggling.
Government attorneys will also consider felony prosecution for individuals who get married to evade immigration laws, Sessions wrote.
Advocates for stricter immigration enforcement praised Sessions' new directives as a potentially effective way to curb illegal immigration.
But Mr. Sessions deviated from his prepared remarks and didn't say "filth" as he delivered his speech. "We do have that challenge, we want people to understand that they are not entitled to enter unlawfully".
