Speaking at the Human Trafficking Summit Friday, Sessions warned of the increase in trafficking and called for tighter border security.

This comes after the Justice Department arrested a record number of human traffickers last year, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions says their work is just beginning.

“This is another reason why we must finally secure our border – traffickers and coyotes see our porous border as an opportunity they can exploit often for great profit,” said Sessions. “They exploit this weakness in our security all too easily.”

Sessions also said all 94 of the nation’s attorneys’ offices have designated human trafficking coordinators with customized strategies for their districts to target the criminals.

    i was down in chula vista 40 years ago on a hot day trying to find a parking spot and some mexican about 20 years old yelled “gringo, get out of here this is our park.” since i was a property owner in that town i wasn’t to happy since this guy never paid a dime (based on his age) to support his park.

    Simple solution……….just migrate a few thousand lions and tigers and bears along the border ………oh my

  3. Gowdy for DOJ.

  4. traffickers and coyotes? I don’t think they are part of the same group. One, the traffickers, are much worse.

  5. nfcapitalist | February 3, 2018 at 8:28 am |

    We needed a man in that position and we got a child… Trey Gowdy for Director of the FBI and Jim Jordan for Attorney General of the United States… and stop xxxxxxx around.

    The reason we want to secure our borders is because of illegals. What about the criminals that are already here like the treasonous democrats? Trump is keeping Gitmo open, and sending 150 more marshals down there. Wonder if he anticipates a rise in population down there when all this stuff comes to an end?

  7. Drug, human trafficing and illegal immigration…all reasons for the wall.

  8. For some reason I was born white. Didn’t know it until I was taught the difference between black and white in school. That’s where I learned to be afraid of anyone not the same skin color. How can I change my color? Would anyone want my heart if I were dying to keep them alive if I am white? Guess not….

    Sessions isn’t doing anything like McConnell. Trump should have had started recruiting before and during his campaign. The turtle and muskrat in the swamp have not and will not do anything that the puppet masters of the Republican and Democratic swamp creatures tell them to. If Trump is serious clean house appoint new people for these positions. There is a ditch surrounding DC from these spineless politicians dragging their feet. No one will see prison just like the last 100+ years and we continue our path towards socialism. Politicians only do what their sugar donors tell them. Taxpayers and US citizens be damned.

  10. Get ready to get on the back of the bus

  11. Sessions needs to clean house before doing anything else

  12. Talking scared.
    “Playing stupid…”

  13. Non-acting Sessions is a big part of a problem with our democracy and republic.

  14. BTW, did you inform the CIC that most of those traffickers are DACA? Gee, thought you knew since it is in the papers daily.

  15. Do us a favor, and don’t open your mouth again until you say the words “prosecution of FBI /DOJ secret society members has begun”.
    …………crickets..

  16. Patriots meet at 10:00AM, Saturday 2/3 at Chicano Park in San Diego to raise American flag. Breitbart censored this comment.

  17. Jeff. You need to clean inside your house before doing something outside.

  18. We must secure our 3-letter agencies that have gone rogue too.

  19. Jerry Shelton | February 2, 2018 at 7:12 pm |

    Let me see if I heard this correctly…”we need to secure the border to prevent crime”
    Wow; How can any one think like that?

  20. Our DoJ and FBI are corrupt and Sessions woke up and decided to comment on human trafficking?

  21. Session hand picks what he goes after. He has some skeletons in his closet. He needs to be replaced.

  22. Gnome Sane? | February 2, 2018 at 5:56 pm |

    No kidding. My first bit of career advice to JeffRo is to get off his establishment a** and get to work. Based on his performance appraisal from the last year I don’t know if I could depend on him to give me the correct time of the day, much less address our immigration problem. I’m still stumped as to why this good ol’ boy still has a job.

  23. If you kill the traffickers, eventually you make human trafficking an unattractive business for these thugs. How many of you realize that deadly force can be used to protect your life OR the life of someone else? There are three crimes that I know of that legally allows the use of lethal force to stop the perp: assault with a deadly weapon of any kind, rape, and abduction. This last one is what human trafficking is. Give the traffickers the death penalty, for their actions lead to the rape and murder of women and children.

  24. I would gladly contribute to build the wall if I just knew where to. If every American that wants a wall would give $10.00 per family member then there would be money to build the wall.

    • HarryObrian | February 2, 2018 at 7:51 pm |

      I ran those numbers and if half the working families of the country truly want the wall and are willing to donate, the amount is 500 per family. The problem is there is no one anyone trusts to handle that money to make sure the job is done without the typical graft, corruption and massive overruns.
      My guess is that President Trump will use the wall yet again as a campaign promise for his second term along with his fable of auditing the FED..

      • President Trump can be trusted with the money and I would want his sons to be the contractors overseeing the project

    • That is a terrible idea.. it would just be another tax!

      We have already paid for the wall with our taxes.. the money is already there!

    • Great idea

  25. We need a real attorney general? Clearly, Jeff Sessions isn’t it.

    • Agree

    • I think he’s doing more than people give him credit while these feckless political showdowns are gathering headlines. But you’re right,… how about Trey Gowdy? I hear he’s not running for the next term.

  26. Swampdrainer | February 2, 2018 at 4:14 pm |

    Coyotes? I say we give them amnesty and a path to citizenship.
    Is AG Sessions for real….or just a real joke?
    Go after Hillary, Obama, Comey, Lynch, Rosenstein, McCabe…just to name a few. Leave the coyotes alone.

    • Sarcasm noted. 😉 The stats show that most of the Coyotes are DACA. 3 were just arrested for human trafficking. Wonder if Jeffy bothers to pass that data along to CIC. MS-13 are DACA too.

  27. Human Trafficking is the Liberal Dem Base Bread and Butter Vote . Every time some Illegal Criminal sneaks into America , they see it as a Vote ………

  28. What’s the matter with Sessions?
    Re Rosenstein – will Sessions remove that dude?

  29. Good, however there is an elephant in the room Mr. Sessions. Stop playing stupid. We know that you stated you reviewed the FISA documents not long ago and you stated you found NOTHING wrong with them! You are an underhanded tool and need to get the he.. out of there!

    • HarryObrian | February 2, 2018 at 7:48 pm |

      Might want to have someone do a real background check on Mr Sessions, his family and his financial records… just for the fun of it… his dance card has been empty too long yet that’s all he does.

  30. TRUMP MAGA 2020 | February 2, 2018 at 2:36 pm |

    There’s bigger fish to fry….and I mean fry!

  31. ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE
    probem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white
    country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan,
    but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing
    in millons of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY
    white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e.,
    intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem
    would be solved only if hunrdeds of millions of non-blacks were brought
    into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE
    problem. I am talking about the ultimate solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of
    genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable
    conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    • I agree with you, but the problem is every time I support someone who says this before you know it they start posting (((insert word ))) on every post they make and that is where I have to part ways.

    • Pamela Goodman | February 4, 2018 at 11:50 am |

      What are White countries?

      • White countries are the countries that anti-whites insist has an obligation to import huge numbers of 3rd worlders.

        • Pamela Goodman | February 4, 2018 at 12:21 pm |

          Certainly you are educated enough to know that Europe has a problem with their native born populations. They are under populated and had to import more people. It is true look it up. The thing is they want bleeding heart Americans to pay their expenses. In this country if you are white make babies lots of babies to repopulate the white race it is the only way to win right

          The USA is actually not a white nation but is the result of Europe dumping their unwanted trash people as immigrants starting in the 16th century here in America Canada Australia and even South Africa. The Native Americans did not see that there was an issue thinking only how these new people could benefit them and what could a few Europeans on the coasts do to harm them any way.

          This article is about the human slavery taking place between the USA and it’s southern border but there are just as many Asian (Chinese , Filipino, and East Indian) immigrants that currently own slaves in this country. They are not coming by crossing the southern border they are being smuggled via shipping containers.

  32. DOJ insiders report that Sessions is personally coordinating with all the Attorneys General to handle cross-border drug smuggling, to make certain his supply is not interrupted.

  33. We need border security for many reasons including illegal immigration, terrorism, drug smuggling, and slavery.

  34. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Huh?! What?! Oh hello, I’m J Sessions.
