San Diego (United States of America), May 08 (ANI): United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions said illegal crossings "must end" and that if a child is being smuggled into the U.S., the child will be placed in protective custody.“I have put in place a "zero tolerance" policy for illegal entry on our Southwest border... If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child may be separated from you as required by law,” said Sessions.
