U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday the federal government would take a more aggressive approach to immigration prosecution starting immediately.

Sessions outlined the series of changes, which included plans to add 50 judges to immigration courts this year and 75 next year, while touring the Arizona-Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona, with Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey.

Sessions said the changes marked the start of a new era to rid American cities and the border of what he described as “filth” brought on by drug cartels.
