In a speech before law-enforcement officials in Arizona on Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the federal government seeks to separate parents from their children at the U.S. -Mexico border in an effort to discourage more crossings.

"If you cross the border unlawfully, even a first offense, then we're going to prosecute you", Sessions said. "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border". If you are smuggling a child, we will prosecute you. The Wall Street Journal, citing the Department of Health and Human Services, reported earlier Monday that 700 children had been separated from their families since October of past year. If you make false statements to an immigration officer or file a fraudulent asylum claim, that is a felony.

The conference comes a week after a caravan of a few hundred migrants from Central America arrived at the U.S. border in Tijuana, and it's likely to be a topic of discussion. "We need legality and integrity in our immigration system".

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is expected to speak at 3 p.m., Central Time, Monday in San Diego near the U.S. border with Mexico.

The California company is still struggling to ramp up the Model 3 production, for which it has received almost 500,000 pre-orders. Wall Street analysts are closely following Tesla's progress as the company works to resolve Model 3 production delays.

Sessions' visit follows a March visit by President Donald Trump to Otay Mesa to survey border wall prototypes.

"I have no doubt that many of those crossing our border illegally are leaving hard situations", Sessions said.

"It's obvious that we can not take everyone who wants to come here without also hurting the interests of the citizens we are sworn to serve and protect".

Sessions says he has sent 35 prosecutors to the region to work on these cases. Sessions said Americans for decades have been "pleading" for tighter immigration enforcement.
