FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions visited Fort Wayne to discuss immigration policy.
Sessions spoke with invited guests at Parkview Field during his address, Thursday. His address included remarks regarding a proposed office, within the Department of Justice, to be focused on identifying people who are “cheating” to get their citizenship.

Meantime, several hundred folks showed up to protest the speech outside Parkview Field.
Organizers with ‘People for the Common Good’ and ‘United Activists of Fort Wayne’ tell our partners in news at ABC 21, their goal for the rally was to offer a different viewpoint on immigration than the Attorney General. One major topic of contention, children being separated from their families at the border.
Sessions also joined the Pat Miller Program to touch on a wide range of topics, including a new religious liberty announcement, free speech on college campuses, his immigration address at Parkview Field and the Inspector General’s Report on James Comey.
It comes after he told immigration judges earlier this week to ignore domestic and gang violence as reasons for granting asylum.
