No More Free Rides
Friends, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is announcing a zero tolerance policy for illegal immigration -- that is, he intends to prosecute 100% of those who cross the border illegally, and they will then face punishment for that crime of border-hopping. In addition, this will mean that parents who illegally cross with their children will be separated from those children. This is "tough love," but it's a big improvement from the old policy, which said that, if a family shows up at the border, we'll release them into the U.S. population, and even bus them wherever they'd like to go, while we consider their "status". What a joke!
This new tack is a breath of fresh air, but does Sessions have the moxie to follow through? Let's keep his feet to the fire, shall we?
