The U.S. Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, unveiled a “zero tolerance” plan against immigrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico border without documentation. “These actions are even more necessary due to the massive illegal crossings in the past months.” Explained Sessions. This way, the Department of Justice would start court proceedings for irregular crossing, for the trafficking of adults and minors, and for false testimony to an immigration officer.

This plan is targeting those who lie to obtain political asylum, as well as those who provide such advice. Sessions explained that he doesn’t doubt that many of the people crossing the border illegally are leaving behind difficult situations, but “we can’t receive everyone in the planet that is going through hardship,” he explained. In order to enforce this strategy, Sessions sent 35 prosecutors to the border. At the same time, 18 judges have been designated to focus mainly on political asylum petitions.   

Sessions explained that the asylum policies are different than those applied to those who cross the border undocumented. Although there has been a sharp increase in asylum petitions, he said that judges usually approve about 20 per cent of them. The U.S. Attorney made it clear that those who apply for asylum must do it through the international posts, where there is room to process them, and those who are caught crossing illegally will be prosecuted.

Separation of families

Sessions insisted that if a person is caught crossing the border illegally with a minor, they will be separated, according to the law. “We don’t want to separate families, but we also don’t want families to come to the border illegally,” he explained. “Our goal is for everyone to know that this border is not open,” he concluded. And he added “Don’t come here illegally. Present your petition and wait for your turn.”
