WASHINGTON — President Trump doesn’t expect a Wall extending the full length of the border with Mexico, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday.
“No, I think the president made clear he doesn’t expect that,” Sessions said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
Trump’s request for Congress to fund a border wall comes as he’s threatening to end protections for young undocumented immigrants, known as Dreamers.
Sessions said the president has “heart” and wants Congress to restore legal protections provided by President Obama’s executive action, known as DACA, that Trump is repealing over concerns of its legality.
But a law shielding the DACA receipients from deportation has to be tied to a crack down on undocumeted immigrants, said Sessions.
“We have got to have more than just an amnesty … we need a good improvement in the illegality that is going on,” Sessions said.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) pressed Sessions on the scope of the wall that Trump wants.
“It won’t be 2,200 miles?,” Graham said.
“No, it will not,” Sessions replied.
Sessions said he doesn’t back granting the DREAM Act immigrants a pathway to US citizenship, saying they “should not get everything” that someone who came here legally was granted.
