Sessions says comparing separated children's quarters to Nazi Germany is an "exaggeration"

Kevin Yoder issues statement on separation of families at the U.S. border

"Well, it's a real exaggeration", Sessions said.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions makes a statement regarding national security in NY, U.S., November 2, 2017.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has claimed comparisons between Nazi Germany and the Trump administration's border policy of separating parents from their children are not fair because "in Nazi Germany they were keeping the Jews from leaving".

"W$3 e have watched what happened with the Obama policies, and over the years, we went from 15,000 illegal entries to 75,000", Sessions said.

In his interview with The Ingraham Angle, Sessions also suggested that parents who attempted to cross into the US without proper documentation were at fault if they were separated from their children.

"It is one of the reasons the American people elected President Trump - to end the lawlessness at our southern border".

On Friday, the Department of Homeland Security reported that almost 2000 children have been separated from their families since last month. "They're - presumably, they are claiming an asylum, and that's - they would not be prosecuted and not be separated".

He has been indicted by USA authorities but is unlikely to face the charges as Germany doesn't extradite nationals to the US. A search was also conducted in the apartment is not named for the member of the management Board of Audi.

The Trump administration has made a decision to criminally prosecute any adult caught crossing the border illegally, as opposed to referring those with children mainly to immigration courts, as previous administrations did. "It takes a lasting, and sometimes even irreversible toll on the child's well being", Yoder stated in the letter. When asked during his Fox News interview whether family separations were being used as a deterrent to illegal immigration, Sessions acknowledged that it is.

"When you have to explain to people why your policies aren't exactly like Nazi Germany, it's time to rethink your policies". "We're taking care of these children", Sessions told Ingraham.

"If they enter the country at a port of entry and there are many of those along the border, they are not violating the law", he said.

Meanwhile Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, which enforces immigration policy, said many of those coming to the borders as family groups were in fact not families.

Sessions went on to justify the policy by pointing out that the administration wants to allow asylum for people who genuinely need it, but that he doesn't want to asylum process to be abused simply by people who are trying to come to the US for "their personal financial benefit".

Only about 20% of those seeking asylum actually merit it, she said.
