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

Attorney General Jeff Sessions to visit San Diego border Monday

"If you cross the border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you -it's that simple".

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.

A person stopped by the border patrol and referred to a federal court to face charges is taken to jail by the U.S. Marshals Service and any of their children traveling with them are placed in government custody, with the Office of Refugee Resettlement, Sessions said.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions became the latest Trump Administration official to visit the San Diego border area when he arrived Monday to discuss the administration's anti-immigration agenda.

Sessions also said that families who illegally cross the border may be separated after their arrest, with children sent to juvenile shelters while their parents are sent to detention facilities. "But we can not take everyone on this planet who is in a hard situation".

Sessions noted that the Department of Justice will send 35 prosecutors and 18 immigration judges to the Southwest, equating to a roughly 50 percent increase in the number of judges hearing asylum cases.

According to the report, families that are detained for illegal crossings have typically been kept together in the past.

The trip marked the fourth time a high-ranking Trump Administration official has visited the California-Mexico border region in recent months. He advocated ending migration based on family reunification and claimed that a highly publicized immigrant caravan of Central American asylum-seekers was "undermining the laws of this country and the sovereignty of the United States".

The Trump administration has made a decision to refer every person caught crossing the border illegally for federal prosecution, a policy that could result in the separation of far more parents from their children at the border. "We need legality and integrity in our immigration system", he continued.
