IT’S ABOUT TIME!! Trump Admin Doubles Down On…

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is putting a greater emphasis nationally on violent crimes, per Fox News.

All 94 US attorneys received a memo from Sessions Tuesday, emphasizing focus on immigration crime.

Check it out:

This was after he sent a memo last week announcing the creation of task force groups to focus on violent crimes, sentencing policies, illegal immigration, human trafficking and more.

This is particularly notable as the administration moves away from an Obama-era focus on white collar crime.

White-collar prosecutions in the U.S. fall under a pretty big umbrella. Typically, they involve non-violent, financially motivated offenses that cover everything from insider trading to embezzlement to Ponzi schemes to identity theft.

The push to prosecute these crimes exploded during the Bush and Obama years. Public rage grew as millions of Americans were forced to foreclose on their homes while big banks and Wall Street fat-cats profited.

Experts are predicting, however, that white collar crime will now take a backseat to the focuses of the new administration.
