The Remembrance Project: AG Jeff Sessions Thanks Border Agent for Help
A Personal Note From U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to The Remembrance Project
WASHINGTON, DC - During a meeting with U.S. Attorney General Sessions we shared the concerns of Border Patrol Agent Paul Perez, President of the National Border Patrol Council-Local 3307. A.G. Sessions agreed with President Perez's concerns thanked The Remembrance Project, (see A.G. Session's personal note below).
That afternoon, A.G. Sessions traveled to Arizona where he announced his new guidance directing all federal prosecutors to prioritize criminal immigration enforcement. He mentioned four (4) specific mandates that would require the prosecutors to consider for prosecution.
Agent Perez's request was Attorney General Session's fifth and final point.
General Sessions said:
"Finally, and perhaps most importantly: I have directed that all 94 U.S. Attorneys Offices make the prosecution of assault on a federal law enforcement officer a top priority. If someone dares to assault one of our people in the line of duty, they will do federal time for it."
