Sessions joined Sean Hannity to talk about his trip to the U.S.-Mexico border today and the strong message he’s relaying to the world about trying to enter this country illegally going forward.
Sessions said that Trump words have already resonated at the border as reports have stated illegal aliens entries have slowed down tremendously. Sessions wanted to put a nail in that illegal crossing coffin.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Fox News’ “Hannity” Tuesday night that the Trump administration is trying to send a strong message to anyone thinking of trying to enter America illegally.
“The border is not open. Please don’t come.” Sessions said in an interview with host Sean Hannity. “You will be apprehended if you do come and you will be deported promptly. If you’re a criminal, you will be prosecuted, and if you assault our officers, we’re going to come at you [like] a ton of bricks.“
Sessions said President Trump’s rhetoric was having an effect, citing a recent Department of Homeland Security report indicating that fewer people are attempting to cross America’s southern border illegally.
“I knew strong Presidential leadership, unlike the wishy-washy-ness we’ve seen in the past, would impact the flow, but not as much as we’ve seen already,” Sessions said. “The numbers are down 70 percent since President Obama left office. So it’s really a remarkable achievement.”
The attorney general spoke after wrapping up a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border, where he urged federal prosecutors to focus on immigration-related crimes, such as human trafficking.
