Attorney General Jeff Sessions addressed reports that there are splits within the White House on immigration, saying President Trump still intends to build a wall with Mexico.
"The president shares the view. He's still insisting we're going to build this wall, and he's not backing down from it," Sessions said in an interview on "The Laura Ingraham Show" on Wednesday. "And he's supported me and Homeland Security in stepping up in enforcement at the border 100 percent. And we're carrying out his agenda."
There have been reports that chief strategist Steve Bannon, and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, are butting heads when it comes actually carrying out the president's immigration rhetoric.
"I'm an admirer of Steve Bannon and the Trump family and they've been supportive of what we're doing. I've not felt any pushback against me on anything I've done or advocated," Sessions explained.
Sessions added that he is committed to immigration enforcement and upping border security, and that everyone at the White House shares that view.
"I think that's shared throughout the White House. And I don't believe anybody is going to object to that," Sessions added.
Last week, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said at a Senate Homeland Security committee hearing that "it is unlikely that we will build a wall, a physical barrier, from sea to shining sea."
Speaking from the Arizona-Mexico border on Tuesday, Sessions warned illegal immigrants: "This is a new era. This is the Trump era." The nation's top law enforcement officer also instructed all federal prosecutors to look into felony prosecutions against people suspected of the "transportation or harboring of aliens," as well as against those who enter the U.S. illegally more than once.
