Starting today, federal prosecutors are now required to consider for prosecution all of the following offenses often not prosecuted in the past. The transportation and harboring of aliens, as you know too well, this is a booming business. No more. We are going to shut down and jail those who've been profiting from this lawlessness.
Further, where an alien has unlawfully entered the country, which is a misdemeanor, that alien will now be charged with a felony if they unlawfully enter. Or attempt to enter a second time and certain aggravating circumstances are present. We will now be detaining all adults who are apprehended at the border.
They will not be released. We will secure this border. And bring the full weight of both the immigration courts and the federal enforcement and prosecutors to combat this attack on our national security and our sovereignty.
