“To the brave men and women who secure this border, you have both my sincere thanks and admiration. It is your service that not only protects our country, but establishes our sovereignty.
As I learned first-hand last week in Nogales, it is here, on this sliver of land where we establish a beachhead against the cartels, the transnational street gangs like Mara Salvatrucha 13, and the human traffickers. This is ground zero – this is the front lines, and this is where we take our stand.
Through the strong leadership of President Trump and Secretary Kelly, we have already made incredible progress and have seen the lowest number of border crossings in at least 17 years. For those that still seek to violate our laws and enter the country illegally, let me be very clear: Don’t come, when you are caught, you will be detained, adjudicated and deported.” stated AG Jeff Sessions as he addressed the Border Patrol in El Paso, TX.

In case you didn’t get a chance to see these interviews… I posted them together because while some of the information is the same, there is other information that is different.
Interesting note – moving District Judges down to help reduce the backlog. Certainly as far as I remember, unheard of in prior administrations but given the severity of the backlog and the loss of millions of dollars every week — definitely good to hear.
