Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a clear warning Thursday to anyone thinking about illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.No permission.
“When you are caught, you will be detained, adjudicated and deported,” Sessions said at a stop in El Paso, Texas with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.
“Do not come unlawfully,” he added. “Wait your turn.”
Sessions and Kelly were in El Paso on a tour of the southern border, which included taking a closer look at border enforcement operations and visiting an immigration court. Sessions called El Paso the the “front lines” and “ground zero” in the fight against illegal immigration, transnational gangs and drug trafficking, Fox News reported.
The attorney general has emerged as the Trump administration’s most strident supporter of stricter enforcement of immigration laws, including deportations of anyone unlawfully present in the U.S.
