Attorney General Jeff Sessions told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that the Trump administration doesn’t have any plans to deport DREAMERs but rather will focus on those who have committed crimes, during an interview on Sunday.
Stephanopoulos asked Sessions whether he agrees with President Trump’s policy not to deport DREAMERs.
“The Homeland Security has primary jurisdiction there. Their first and strongest priority, no doubt about it, is the criminal element that we have in our country that have come here illegally,” Sessions told Stephanopoulos.
Stephanopoulos followed up again by asking whether this meant DREAMERs would not be targeted for deportation.
“I believe that everyone that enters the country unlawfully is subject to being deported. However, we’ve got — we don’t have the ability to round up everybody, and there’s no plans to do that,” Sessions responded.
Sessions concluded by saying, “we’re going to focus first, as the president has directed us, on the criminal element, and we have got to get that under control.”
