On Wednesday, April 11, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave a speech to the Southwestern Border Sheriff’s Coalition in Las Cruces, NM. Las Cruces, NM is about 45 miles from El Paso, TX and the border with Mexico. His remarks focused on the Trump Administration’s view of border security and immigration enforcement. AG Sessions called for an end to what he called, “loopholes,” in asylum law, more local law enforcement participation in 287(g) and funding for the southern border wall.
I have included the links below to both a transcript and a YouTube video of the Attorney General’s speech, so you can judge his remarks for yourself.
