Sessions to talk about immigration enforcement in San Diego

SAN DIEGO (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will discuss immigration enforcement during a Southern California visit.

The Department of Justice says Sessions will hold a news conference Monday afternoon in San Diego.

He’ll be joined by Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan.

No other details have been released.

Sessions’ visit comes about a week after hundreds of Central American migrants traveled to the U.S. border seeking asylum following a month-long caravan through Mexico.

President Donald Trump and Cabinet members tracked the caravan and called it proof that more must be done to secure the border with Mexico, including building a wall.

Sessions called the caravan “a deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system”.

He pledged to send more immigration judges to the border to resolve cases if needed.
