Attorney General Jeff Sessions Announces ‘Zero Tolerance’ Policy For Border Enforcement…

WASHINGTON – Attorney General Jeff Sessions today notified all U.S. Attorney’s Offices along the Southwest Border of a new “zero-tolerance policy” for offenses under 8 U.S.C. § 1325(a), which prohibits both attempted illegal entry and illegal entry into the United States by an alien. The implementation of the Attorney General’s zero-tolerance policy comes as the Department of Homeland Security reported a 203 percent increase in illegal border crossings from March 2017 to March 2018, and a 37 percent increase from February 2018 to March 2018—the largest month-to-month increase since 2011.

“The situation at our Southwest Border is unacceptable. Congress has failed to pass effective legislation that serves the national interest—that closes dangerous loopholes and fully funds a wall along our southern border. As a result, a crisis has erupted at our Southwest Border that necessitates an escalated effort to prosecute those who choose to illegally cross our border,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“To those who wish to challenge the Trump Administration’s commitment to public safety, national security, and the rule of law, I warn you: illegally entering this country will not be rewarded, but will instead be met with the full prosecutorial powers of the Department of Justice. To the Department’s prosecutors, I urge you: promoting and enforcing the rule of law is vital to protecting a nation, its borders, and its citizens. You play a critical part in fulfilling these goals, and I thank you for your continued efforts in seeing to it that our laws—and as a result, our nation—are respected.”  (read more)

    A few notes to go along with this topic:

    When anyone tells you illegal aliens do “the jobs Americans won;t do”, show them this:

    http://jmisys.com/CALOSHA/

    A good sense of the mood of this country toward illegal aliens is this unique poll — a secret poll taken in a blue state:

    “At the polls Tuesday, Oregon voters overwhelmingly rejected a law passed by the state legislature last April that granted driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants residing in the state.
    The measure was put to voters after Oregonians for Immigration Reform, an immigration enforcement group opposed to the driver’s license benefit, initiated a citizen’s referendum and successfully collected the 50,000 signatures required to get it on the ballot. Voters rejected it by a margin of 68 percent to 33 percent.”

      Shoot, citizens, in anticipation of job vacancies, started lining up around the block while an ICE raid was still in progress at a meat packing facility (under W Bush’s administration.) ICE Special Agents had to shoo them away & told they could return the next day.

        This report is 8 years old. What illegal immigrants make varies. Some make minimumbwage, many working in fast food businesses.

        A friend in construction (builder) built his retirement home on a hilltop, 6,000 SF home, and added a pool. He had a crew of guys come every day on their off days, typically weekends, and I think paid them $800-$1,000 a day, cash. Crew leader divided it up. I met a guy who was charging $20 an hour for carpentry work. Cash.

      This is why it needs to be a solid wall. A well maintained thirty foot wall without any openings of any kind offers no purchase for scum like this guy.

      This is the Bush wall, not the Trump wall. IMHO Pres. Trump is getting very bad advice on the border wall constitution. He should do as he did when fixing the Ice Rink in NYC, go to the people who have built great walls, Israel. We want a wall like Israel, for anyone stating we don’t need a wall, we only need “tech”, they haven’t been to the border.
      In some areas the border is a war zone, there are signs warning Americans not to enter an area due to high drug cartel violence. It is a trail of misery in those areas, is just sad.

      Just watch this coming week when various news drops about Eric Holder colluding with the California political leadership sabotaging the Trump administration filing more frivolous lawsuits.
      The Q-team posted that this not only about open borders but goes much deeper and into more dangerous territory than what we ever imagined. It is alluded that it has implications in a more dangerous invasion to harm the American people and destroy the country.
      President Trump and the Marines and the military intelligence had to move up their plans in bringing various players to GITMO.

      Listen to president Trump’s words carefully from Saturday where he states that ‘it is happening’ – repeating and validating the Q-teams post to the anons on 8chan – nightly raids and actions behind the scene are taking place.

      I am really happy and thankful that DOJ Jeff Sessions issued the suspension of the catch and release policy. It was always the loop hole to let millions in that never showed up during their court dates.

      @Sundance:

      Could you – if your time permits – please look into California – the state – since it was never declared as state but rather just ‘spoils of war’. I’m not familiar with American History going so far back but obviously there is something to it.
      President Trump and his team have found that there is something deeply buried in the history of California going back to the war that involved Mexico. The Q-team dropped info that there is a lot deeper issue than just open border.
      I would like to learn too so as to understand more clearly. Thank you!

    Close the border to Illegal traffic. If we do not have a border we do not have a country. Everyone knows this including the left.

    On a side note Matt Bracken is correct; the internationalists want the United States taken out of the picture. They are deliberately trying to achieve this through balkanization of the United States. A civil war here would start suit their purposes perfectly.

    I have to confess sometimes it is damned tempting. I do believe if we prove unable to save the entire country we must have a plan be to save a part of it.

    But let’s save the whole thing. Economic reforms are a genuine step in the right direction. While those are having their effect we throw out every single person who is here illegally, and then build a big beautiful wall on the southern border just as was promised.

    The school-to-something pipeline that we have to stop is the school-to-welfare pipeline. A growing economy provides jobs for people at all levels of skill and education and reinstates the system that once existed here of upward social Mobility.

    IMO, we need thousands more Border Control Agents who have arrest powers. We also need more illegal alien detainment centers in the southern states.
    Until The Wall is built in every sector, it will be necessary to patrol the border diligently to catch and detain all these interlopers. And even once The Wall is finished, there will always be some who find ways to get over or under it. The only fix for that is massive border patrol.

      ON the border. Use a very tall wall set back 100 feet from the actual border with a one way door so they get tossed out onto US territory, serving the letter of the law and a loud speaker to telll them when their court date is set.

  6. Dale Wilcox announcing the CA amicus filing in support of Sessions’ suit vs CA:

    ““Sadly, the supermajority in Sacramento is legislating for the rest of the state and imposing these laws that are clearly unconstitutional and violate the supremacy clause and are not in the best interests of Californians but solely in the best interests of illegal aliens and criminals……”

    Also, those annual caravans through Mexico are financed and organized by US open border organizations working with the drug cartel to support their very profitable human trafficking an drug smuggling border rackets.

    My point: is there anyone left who doubts that our politicians, especially here in CA, are on the drug cartel payrolls? Add the money-laundering banks and US corporations who write the tax and spending bills while having control of the regulators who supposedly police them….. This is more than a fifth column. The hostile invaders have already entrenched themselves into position. A fractured dysfunctional America is already a fait accompli. Gun confiscation is already happening. The border has become a final detail for permanently undermining American society. We are in a fight for our very survival and yet everyone keeps shopping and buying more apps.

      “…We are in a fight for our very survival…”

      With the Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty that had clauses allowing international corporations to TRUMP the SUPREME COURT similar to how the EU is set up, I figured the USA was a goner.

      Former WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy indicates that an European Union like super state has been the goal since the 1930s. (www.globalgovernancewatch.org/spotlight_on_sovereignty/lamy-calls-for-europeaninspired-global-governance )

      To govern this globalized world, writes World Trade Organization Director-General Pascal Lamy, existing institutions will need to be reformed
      (www.theglobalist.com/storyid.aspx?StoryId=9174 )

      [……] globalization is blurring the line between national and world issues, redefining our notions of space, sovereignty and identity. As we saw during the recent financial crisis, economic turbulence in one country now sends shockwaves worldwide.

      Countries claim the right to use national resources as they see fit. But the byproduct can be greenhouse gases or disappearing fish stocks or raw material shortages — which impact the interconnected world we share….

      The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed….

      All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s …including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty — rooted in freedom, openness, prosperity and interdependence. […]

      “and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty” means getting rid of that pesky US Constitution.

      Lamy makes that clear when he says…

      I see four main challenges for global governance today.
      The first one is leadership…..
      The second one is efficiency, i.e. the capacity to mobilize resources….
      The third one is coherence….
      The last challenge that I see is that of legitimacy — for legitimacy is intrinsically linked to proximity, to a sense of “togetherness”.….

      There is one place where attempts to deal with these challenges have been made and where new forms of governance have been tested for the last 60 years: in Europe. The European construction is the most ambitious experiment in supranational governance ever attempted up to now. [Interesting that he uses word ‘experiment’] It is the story of a desired, delineated and organized interdependence between its Member States….

      First, on the question of efficiency, Europe scores in my view rather highly. Thanks to the primacy of EU law over national law. Thanks to the work of the European Court of Justice in ensuring enforcement and respect for the rule of law. And thanks to a clear articulation between the Commission, the Parliament, and the European Court of Justice.

      The USA is unique because it is based on the principle of God given INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS and individuals ALLOW the government to make laws on their behalf. Other governments are based on the principle that the Government grants individuals ‘privileges’ that it can remove at any time and the needs of the community as a whole (read the government leaders) trump the rights of an individual. (‘God given’ is the reason for the present attack on Christianity. BTW)

      What many do not realize is the British Monarch OWNS all the land in the UK, Canada and Australia. (www.businessinsider.com/worlds-biggest-landowners-2011-3?op=1 ) (Notice the article does not mention banks own a heck of a lot of the rest of the world’s land via mortgages)

      Think about that and the UK’s interference in our last election!

      • When Congress voted to approve the TPP, it was delegating it’s primary reason for being to an extranational power that wasn’t yet formed. Congress does not have the constitutional authority to delegate its core responsibilities. THAT should be the central argument for forcing Congress to return to regular order and taking back the power it has delegated to bureaucracies to define their own missions and to corporations ins writing their own tax laws.

        If there is one thing worse than a Congress that has legislated itself out of any reason for existing, it is a Congress that exists only for defending and preserving the gateway that allows the world’s parasitic vampires to feed off of the American taxpayer’s blood. We need to start shutting down vast swaths of the government apparatus. We can survive the temporary chaos if we are willing to suffer a little in our struggle to a better life.

        BTW, for those who categorically reject Trump’s strategy of imposing tariffs on the Chinese, here is a little context. Keep in mind that GWB set us off on a multi-trillion dollar military permanent war boondoggle of nation building while urging us to keep shopping. So Americans were disconnected from having to confront the consequences of this as if there were no consequences for the NWO where we lose every war. We have since learned that their ARE serious consequences and maybe we should have fought an all-out war instead. Yet we aren’t even willing to fight a trade war to avoid a world war out of fear of temporary financial market disruptions?

        I don’t recognize this America anymore. Thank God we have someone who is willing to take us where we need to go. It might be too late but at least we frogs will be offered one more opportunity to avoid getting boiled to death. I prefer dying on my feet.

        The difference between the American an European concepts of legitimacy is beautifully explained in your post, G Combs, and it is something most Americans unfortunately do not understand. It is absolutely crucial to understand that in Americans’ view, the source of power is the citizen; in Europe (including the U.K.), the source of power is the government. Governance here requires the consent, not the acquiescence, of the governed.

    Glad AG Sessions is using this language (zero tolerance). I’m glad too that he is setting the expectation out to the Federal prosecutors to apply the law uniformly to illegal aliens crossing the border.

    It is good to see that AG Sessions is addressing the resource issue so no excuses can apply to failure to follow the law. I just hope he will evaluate the DOJ employees on their compliance in following this directive. There are far too many reports that they like the catch and release program from a personal point of view rather than following the law.
