Sessions said, according to his prepared remarks, "We are going to shut down and jail those who have been profiting off this lawlessness-people smuggling gang members across the border, helping convicted criminals re-enter this country, and preying on those who don't know how risky the journey can be".

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced several changes to the country's handling of immigration enforcement and border security. "The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws and the catch and release practices of old are over", he said. In his Nogales speech, Sessions stressed the dangers of criminal gangs, whose members he said "turn cities and suburbs into war zones", "rape and kill innocent citizens" and profit from trafficking people across the border.

This is the first tour of the U.S. -Mexico border Sessions is making as the nation's top law enforcement officer.

Mr Session's plan is reinforced by the Justice Department's latest budget proposal, which would direct hundreds of millions of dollars to hiring new Border Patrol agents, federal prosecutors, and deputy US Marshals, while cutting the department's overall budget by more than $1 billion.

Acknowledging the decrease in border crossings last month, which was the lowest monthly figure for at least 17 years Sessions says, he told prosecutors that he wants to redouble efforts on enforcement to reduce illegal crossings further.

Data from federal arrests, however, show an increasing emphasis on punishing those who break immigration laws well before the Trump election, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center published April 10.
