"If you cross this border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you".

The remarks were published on the department's website as Sessions prepares to hold a news conference in San Diego with Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan.

"People are not going to caravan or otherwise stampede our border".

Thus, Attorney General Jeff Sessions' new campaign to criminalize all immigrants on the border aims to eliminate previous practices in which people found in U.S. territory after having crossed the border illegally were immediately sent on buses back across the border, as the Los Angeles Times explained. "If you smuggle illegal aliens across our border, then we will prosecute you".

Villanueva thrilled for Padres' series in Mexico
The San Diego Padres will be looking to bounce back after losing 12 of their last 16 games following the no-hit loss on Friday . It was a slugging clinic in the rout, with three home runs, including Will Chambers Santa Clarita leading ninth of the season.


The Los Angeles Times was the first to report the planned announcement.

The attorney general previously spoke out about the caravan last week when federal prosecutors alleged that 11 of the immigrants had tried to cross the border illegally under the cover of darkness.

Apprehensions have now risen to levels seen during the administration of former President Barack Obama, frustrating President Donald Trump, who has made illegal immigration a focal point of his administration.

The most serious aspect of this new policy seems to be the fact that if an adult crosses the border with their children, they will be separated while waiting for the criminal proceeding.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen officially enacted the policy on Friday, according to a Department of Homeland Security official speaking on condition of anonymity.

The new rule does not apply to families who present themselves to authorities at the border and apply for asylum.

The DHS said on Monday that there had been about 30,000 prosecution referrals since the start of the 2018 fiscal year in October, up from 18,642 prosecutions for the entire 2017 fiscal year.

"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 Monday at a law enforcement event in Scottsdale, Ariz.
