Justice Department Implements 'Zero Tolerance' Policy at U.S.-Mexico Border
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered a “zero tolerance” policy for illegal immigrants crossing over the U.S.-Mexico border. According to a press release, the implementation of the policy comes as the Department of Homeland Security reported a 203 percent increase in illegal border crossings from March 2017 to March 2018.
Sessions said a “crisis” has erupted at the Southwest border and the situation is “unacceptable.”
The zero-tolerance police directs each U.S. Attorney’s Office along the border to prosecute all illegal entries.
