The policy, which the official said was signed on Friday, formalizes plans that have been under discussion for more than a year.

Families seeking asylum and presenting themselves at official US border crossings will be allowed to stay together as they seek protected status, according to a USA official familiar with the new policy.

Reuters first reported the government's idea to separate parents and children apprehended at the border in March 2017.

- U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday that the Department of Homeland Security had agreed to refer anyone who enters the United States illegally on the Mexican border to his office for prosecution.

Those who enter the USA illegally will not be detained and returned over the border; anyone who crosses into the country illegally can expect to be held for prosecution, the LA Times reported. "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border". The Wall Street Journal, citing the Department of Health and Human Services, reported earlier Monday that 700 children had been separated from their families since October of previous year.

The new rule does not apply to families who present themselves to authorities at the border and apply for asylum. He denied that that Trump administration has a "blanket policy" to separate families as a way to deter others from trying.

"And the Department of Justice will take up as many of those cases as humanly possible until we get to 100 percent", Sessions said in remarks prepared for a speech at a law enforcement conference in Arizona.

The Trump administration has made a decision to refer every person caught crossing the border illegally for federal prosecution, a policy that could result in the separation of far more parents from their children at the border.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions became the latest Trump Administration official to visit the San Diego border area when he arrived Monday to discuss the administration's anti-immigration agenda.
