AGs, including Iowa's demand Sessions to change immigration policies

Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray Caso said the separation of children from parents at the USA border was "cruel and inhuman", and clearly violated human rights.

Regarding the inspector general's report on the investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, Sessions said the DOJ is "digesting it carefully", adding that the inspector general was "open, critical at points, and reported truth". She said, "The AG's comments on Scripture were not to justify the policy but in response to other criticism".

"We do have a policy of prosecuting adults who flout our laws to come here illegally instead of waiting their turn, claiming asylum at ports of entry".

Sessions said he had not anticipated the backlash generated by the "zero tolerance" immigration policy and the anger over moving as many as 2,000 immigrant children into detention centers without their parents.

Mr. Sessions has long condemned what he sees as relaxed border policies, blaming them for gang violence and other social ills.

"In 50 years of the United Methodist Church, I am not aware of any complaint against a lay person moving beyond that stage", Lawrence said.

"That is an enormous cost that we bear because we sent a message to those crossing illegally to bring children and avoid prosecution and deportation", Sessions said.

"I have given the idea of immigration much thought and have considered the arguments of our church leaders", Sessions continued.

Roy hooked a short delivery for four over midwicket and next ball, when Stanlake, again dropped short, he hooked him for six. Australia captain Tim Paine tried everything to stop the bleeding - using eight bowlers - but nothing worked.

I live in a border state. If we have them, then they should be enforced. He was the first author of a letter to Sessions' pastors that hundreds of church members have now signed.

The Rev. Allen Ewing-Merrill, of ME, was one of several members of the New England Conference of the United Methodist Church to sign the national letter and support the local resolution.

Reverend David Wright of Kent, is leading the effort to hold Sessions accountable. Through the processes of the United Methodist Church, it is possible that Sessions could face expulsion from the denomination.

"We're doing the right thing". "In the name of deterring illegal immigration, your Zero Tolerance policy abandons that balance". They are processed through what is essentially church court within the Methodist community. "Ripping vulnerable little children away from their parents is an utter atrocity that debases America's values and our legacy as a beacon of hope, opportunity and freedom".

Sessions' Mobile church, Ashland Place, is part of the UMC's Alabama-West Florida Conference, which has also been critical of the policy.

"The charges aren't coming from the Methodist church, they are coming from around 639 of us - clergy of various sorts and laypersons", Wright told KIRO Radio's Dave Ross.

"There's an important conversation in this country about whether we want to be a country of laws or if we want to be a country without borders", Sessions said.

"President Obama's history on this is atrocious, but nothing to the scale or level of human suffering we are seeing enforced under the current administration", Wright said.
