Prior to 2017, most of all the immigration cases were handled by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Custom and Border Patrol, and Immigration court. This did provide discretion in handling matters, however, as of 2017 Attorney General Jeff Sessions has stated that federal prosecution in federal court should intervene in these cases. This automatically increases the severity of the punishment and is a less humane understanding of the situation surrounding immigration stories.
