Children could be separated from parents if families caught crossing border illegally

Sessions Congress may need to 'take action' on encryption Greg Nash

The Department of Justice says Sessions will hold a news conference Monday afternoon in San Diego.

That means parents will likely face prosecution while their children remain in detention at a "separate refugee facility", according to the Los Angeles Times. "If you're smuggling a child, we're going to prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you, probably, as required by law".

"Eleven million people are already here illegally", Sessions said in his speech.

Under these new rules, "children will be classified as unaccompanied minors if their parents are arrested on illegal entry charges, which will put them in the custody of the Health and Human Resources Department until they can be placed with a guardian", the report continues.

Immigration activists denounced the new policy to separate parents from children, and said they expect to see it challenged in court.

China slams USA criticism of its Taiwan demand
Earlier this year British Airways released a public apology for listing Taiwan and Hong Kong as independent countries on its site. The White House was quick to respond.


In one recent example of how the policy works, a woman who is suspected by the Justice Department of being part of the migrant caravan that was caught in a group north of the border was charged with illegal entry to the USA and separated from the four young children who were with her. "We need legality and integrity in our immigration system".

The attorney general added that making false statements to an immigration officer, filing a fraudulent asylum claim or helping others do so would be prosecuted as felonies. Trump himself was in Otay Mesa in March to survey prototypes of the border wall, which was a key promise of his anti-immigration presidential campaign.

Monday's announcement came about a week after hundreds of Central American migrants traveled to the San Ysidro, Calif., port of entry seeking asylum following a monthlong caravan through Mexico. Until now, most families apprehended crossing the border illegally have been released to await civil deportation hearings.

On Monday, Sessions said the Trump administration's actions were necessary because of "massive increases in illegal crossings in recent months".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks at the National Sheriffs' Association D.C. Opioid Roundtable in Washington, Thursday, May 3, 2018. "That's more than the population of the state of Georgia".
