Jeff Sessions speaks about crime to local state and federal law enforcement officials Friday

Sessions answered just a few questions from reporters after he discussed about tougher approaches to handle undocumented immigrants at the border.

It is a high priority of the Department of Justice to establish lawfulness in our immigration system.

To that end, Sessions announced that each US attorney would be required to designate a point person on border security prosecutions by April 18.

Overall, roughly six out of 10arrests by all federal agencies involved a non-US citizen, up from around four in 10.

Strowman somehow managed to pick Big Show up to the top of the ring and prepared for a "superplex". Of course, now I've got my fat ass up in the air, 500 pounds on a not very stable surface ...

Sessions singled out gangs and cartels as "criminal organizations" that turn "cities and suburbs into war-zones", that "rape and kill innocent" people and profit from "smuggling poison and other human beings across the border".

Sessions: "We will secure this border and combat this attack on our national security & sovereignty".

Advocates for stricter immigration enforcement praised Sessions' new directives as a potentially effective way to curb illegal immigration.

Sessions then outlined five areas of change from Barack Obama's immigration enforcement policy.

He pointed out that illegal crossings at the U.S. Attorneys must consider prosecution in every instance of an individual re-entering the country without authorization after being removed.

U.S. Attorney's Offices are also directed to designate a prosecutor as their Border Security Coordinator in order to implement these new immigration enforcement priorities. That includes prosecuting repeat offenders as felons in some circumstances and adding aggravated identity theft to some cases.

"If someone dares to assault one of our folks in the line of duty, they will do federal time for it", Sessions said.

Sessions had called for immigration courts to speed up prosecutions and for the Justice Department to hire 75 more immigration judges, along with 60 more border enforcement prosecutors.

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. Legal advocates believe part of that drop is due to CBP agents turning away asylum-seekers in violation of worldwide law, which CBP denies.

The Justice Department has already started a policy of sending judges to detention centers to hear cases.

North Korea displays submarine-based missiles for first time at military parade
Analysts say commercial satellite images from recent weeks indicate increased activity around North Korea's nuclear test site. The government also showcased two established ballistic missiles, one for submarines and one for on-land use.

However, in response to a question Tuesday night from Fox News's Sean Hannity, Sessions said he "can't imagine" Congress would deny funding for a wall.
