Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the US will take a stricter stance on illegal crossings at the Mexico border by separating parents from children, rather than keeping them together in detention centers. "If you cross this border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you".

Monday's announcement came about a week after hundreds of Central American migrants traveled to the San Ysidro, Calif., port of entry seeking asylum following a monthlong caravan through Mexico.

People in Reading are being given the chance to spot Prince Harry and his fiancee Meghan Markle , on the side of a Reading bus . However, considering the royal wedding is still two weeks away, it's hard to know for sure how the forecast may turn out.

Sessions also announced the Justice Department's intention to criminally prosecute every immigrant who illegally crosses the border, as opposed to simply busing them back over the border.

On Monday, Sessions said the Trump administration's actions were necessary because of "massive increases in illegal crossings in recent months". "And Congress has already set them", Sessions said.

While the holiday's roots are in Mexico, it's actually a minor holiday there and is celebrated much more in the U.S. In Mexico, the commemoration of the battle continues to be mostly ceremonial, such as through military parades.

Sessions' visit follows a March visit by President Donald Trump to Otay Mesa to survey border wall prototypes.

"This administration is set on tearing families apart, detaining immigrants without justification, leaving US -born children without their parents and stoking fear in immigrant communities, all while siphoning off taxpayer dollars to fund a divisive and ineffective wall", according to a DNC statement.

Jobless Price Appears Like Old Times, but Also the Economy Does Not
Barrera adds that there has not been a lot of movement when it comes to job turnover either which could negatively impact wages. The nursing and residential-care facilities sector lost 500 jobs in April, far fewer than the 3,700 the sector lost in March.

The conference comes a week after a caravan of a few hundred migrants from Central America arrived at the United States border in Tijuana, and it's likely to be a topic of discussion. "We will continue to work with our partners in each U.S. Attorney's offices to aggressively pursue prosecutions of criminal illegal entry". "We are dealing with a massive influx of illegal aliens across our Southwest Border".
