No more. We are going to shut down and jail those who have been profiting off this lawlessness - people smuggling gang members across the border, helping convicted criminals re-enter this country and preying on those who don't know how unsafe the journey can be.
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.
Under those efforts, federal prosecutors are being directed to file felony charges against immigrants caught in the United States after a prior deportation.
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.
"The catch and release policies of the past are over", he said. "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".
However, in response to a question Tuesday night from Fox News's Sean Hannity, Sessions said he "can't imagine" Congress would deny funding for a wall. "Sessions isn't just asking federal prosecutors to enforce the law - he's asking them to actively seek opportunities to throw the book at immigrants, simply for being immigrants".

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".
His directives already exist under US law, the order only "mandates" USA attorneys to make such enforcement a priority.
