Attorney General Jeff Sessions, after a meeting with Donald Trump, orders a top Justice Department official to draft a zero-tolerance policy on immigration. This policy leads to the Trump administration separating children from their parents at the border.

Mr. Hamilton said that former Attorney General Jeff Sessions “perceived a need to take quick action” from Mr. Trump and that after a meeting at the White House on April 3, 2018, Mr. Sessions “directed that I draft a memo that would put in effect a zero-tolerance approach to immigration enforcement at the border.”
