Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been leading President Donald Trump's efforts to crack down on the brutal street gang MS-13.
Tucker Carlson sat down with Sessions during a trip to El Salvador, where many MS-13 gang members come from, to discuss how we can stop them from entering the U.S.
"We need the wall and we need better enforcement at the border and we need to be able to deport people rapidly who enter the country illegally," Sessions said.
He added that another problem is that under our current system, unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors - some of whom are MS-13 members - are turned over to the Department of Health and Human Services and taken to their "destination city" in the U.S.
"This is a very bad and dangerous policy," Sessions said. "And it can be ended, and it must be ended."

He added that this kind of "insanity" is why we've lost control of the border.
He said that's why it's important to send a message to the world that illegal immigration will not be tolerated in the U.S., and anyone who wants to live in our country must go through the proper legal processes.
"President Trump has said we're not going to allow this lawlessness to continue," Sessions said, noting that they have already reduced the flow of illegal immigrants by 50 percent.
"But we are not going to end there. We need to eliminate illegality in our immigration system and create a lawful system that serves our national interests," Sessions said. "Otherwise, you're capitulating to lawlessness."
