Jeff Sessions Defends Immigrant Separation Policy Against Nazi Germany Comparisons

Sessions Building a wall will end family separations at border

Sessions argued that immigrants seeking asylum would be given due process according to the law, but he quickly pivoted to what he views as the bigger side-effect of illegal immigration to the US.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended President Donald Trump's border policies on Monday night, offering an...interesting rebuttal to critics who compared the administration's immigration practices to Nazi Germany. "The number of aliens illegally crossing with children between our ports of entry went from 14,000 to 75,000 - that's a five-fold increase - in just the last four years", Sessions notes.

"The president could pick up the phone tonight and stop this policy of separating children from their parents", Ingraham said, asking what the "real truth" is. "They are not being abused".

"It is one of the reasons the American people elected President Trump - to end the lawlessness at our southern border". Trump has repeated the claim, despite evidence to the contrary, that Democrats in Congress could end the separation policy if they wished.

Most of those parents have asked for asylum, saying they are escaping incessant violence in their homes in Central America.

Meanwhile, their children are taken away to separate holding facilities, to be reunited sometime later.

Tite said he would not make excuses for the disappointing scoreline. "He will not go through any specific treatment, we are not anxious ".

A child entering the USA with an asylum-seeker is granted the same status as the adult.

"We can not and will not encourage people to bring children by giving them blanket immunity from our laws", he said.

A Department of Justice bulletin from April 8 said those entering the country illegally would be met with "the full prosecutorial powers" of the DOJ.

"When we ignore our laws at the border we obviously encourage hundreds of thousands of people a year to likewise ignore our laws and illegally enter our country, creating an enormous burden on our law enforcement, our schools, our hospitals, and social programs", he said. Kellyanne Conway told Meet the Press that the fault lay at the feet of congress, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Face the Nation that it's because of Jeff Sessions giving the president bad advice, and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen is actively trying to convince people that the policy doesn't exist at all.

If the parents claim asylum and stay in the US, Sessions said, their children also stay but in Department of Health and Human Services' custody.
