Sessions to tour Arizona-Mexico border Tuesday

And if Sessions almost evoking "filth" to refer to a group of people, a favorite term that Nazi-era propagandists used to dehumanize Jews, doesn't send enough of a shiver down your spine, the attorney general apparently did go on to declare: "This is a new era".

In a memo released on Tuesday, the attorney general called for an increase in the penalties for undocumented immigrants who attempt to re-enter the U.S. "Depravity and violence are their calling cards ... it is here, on this sliver of land, where we first take our stand against this filth".

Sessions added that President Trump's rhetoric and leadership was having a noticeable effect on border security, citing a recent DHS report indicating fewer illegal crossings.

"The battle is far from over".

Speaking in Nogales, Arizona, Sessions said anyone who crosses the US-Mexico border without legal immigration documents would now be detained and presented to a judge.

Trump's presidency already, he said, has reduced illegal border crossings substantially. He also urged prosecutors to consider charging those illegally in the country with felony identity theft and document fraud.

Cracking down on unauthorized immigration was a campaign staple for Donald Trump, and on Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced new measures for executing the president's long-expressed commitment to the issue.

The same day, Mr Sessions released a memo outlining his border control plans.

Trump Signs 'Buy American, Hire American' Executive Orders
The order directs agencies to enforce government rules on excluding foreign contractors from bids for government projects. Ironically, Trump's wife Melania used an H-1B visa to immigrate to the USA in 1996 and work as a model in New York City.

He said he would order USA attorneys across the country, not just in the border region, to designate a prosecutor in each of their offices to handle immigration crimes and related matters.

"God bless all of you who do this work", he said, turning to the Border Patrol agents in attendance.

Sessions also announced Tuesday that the department would surge the number of immigration judges - a move that advocates and immigration enforcement supporters alike recognize would alleviate the pressure on the immigration courts.

"Which prosecutors and agents does he want to divert from the growing threats like terrorism, cyber crime, the opioid and heroin trade, organized crime and cartel activity?" asked Jenny Durkan, who served as US attorney for the Western District of Washington from 2009 to 2014.

"Once again, Attorney General Sessions is scaring the public by linking immigrants to criminals despite studies showing that immigrants commit crimes at lower rates than the native born". "It doesn't have to be every foot of the entire 1,700 [-mile] border, we know that".

While the Department of Homeland Security drives apprehension, detention and deportation proceedings of undocumented immigrants, the Justice Department handles criminal prosecutions and the immigration courts, including appointing judges.

Sessions was also set to speak with service members at Luke Air Force Base near Phoenix.
