“For those that con­tinue to seek im­proper and il­le­gal en­try into this coun­try, be fore­warned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era,” At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions told an au­di­ence of Cus­toms and Bor­der Pro­tec­tion agents in Nogales, Ari­zona, on Tues­day.

He had a spe­cial mes­sage for those who are the true boots-on­the-ground in the re­gion: “We hear you. And we have your back.”

The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion has au­tho­rized an ad­di­tional $374 mil­lion in fund­ing for the fed­eral agency, which has op­er­ated with 1,700 agents be­low the con­gres­sion­ally man­dated min­i­mum of 21,370 agents, this ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional Bor­der Pa­trol Coun­cil.
