Former Attorney General Of The United States Jeff Sessions provided major wins for President Trump’s administration on the immigration front in 2018, successfully taking into place legal reforms at the U.S.-Mexico border that significantly increased the variety of illegal aliens prosecuted and convicted.
Throughout his period running the Department of Justice (DOJ), Sessions took into location a legal wall at the southern border to stem the tide of increasing illegal migration to the nation and avoid border crossers from being released into the interior of the nation after being captured by Border Patrol.
Sessions’ border reforms consisted of an employing spree of immigration prosecutors, sending additional immigration judges and district attorneys to the border to accelerate deportations, enacting a series of asylum reforms to tighten up rules, and majorly broadening prosecutorial discretion over border crossers.

The most current numbers from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for 2018 expose how Sessions’ directives were the most efficient policies enacted so far in the Trump administration to properly hold border crossers responsible, ICE authorities stated in their report.
” While [ICE] showed substantial gains in all meaningful enforcement metrics, maybe none are more remarkable nor have actually made more of an influence on public security than its prosecutorial efforts,” the ICE report states.
Between September 2017 and October 2018, federal migration authorities made 7,449 criminal arrests of border crossers for mostly unlawfully getting in the U.S.
