AG Sessions announces the allocation of 35 additional Assistant United States Attorneys (AUSAs) to prosecute immigration cases along the southwest border. In complement to the AUSA reassignments, 18 "supervisory immigration judges" (Assistant Chief Immigration Judges) are also being sent to hear border cases, both in person and through video teleconferencing (VTC) -- a roughly 50% increase in the number of IJs on the border.
