U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions says his zero-tolerance policy against anyone who enters the country illegally may cause parents to be separated from their children.
Sessions, speaking Monday at a border wall separating San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, said the Homeland Security Department will send every case of illegal entry to federal prosecutors. The parents will be held in custody, while their children may be released to the U.S. Health and Human Services Department.

Thomas Homan, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's acting director, echoed Sessions, saying the policy will lead to more prosecutions, including parents who must be separated from their children. He denied that that Trump administration has a ``blanket policy'' to separate families as a way to deter others from trying.
