WT: “Migrants who are caught crossing the border illegally for the first time are now facing criminal charges in federal court in Arizona as the Trump administration steps up efforts to deter illegal immigration. First-time offenders until recently were deported instead of being criminally prosecuted.
That changed as of June in the Tucson Sector, which includes most of Arizona’s border with Mexico and which has already seen the prosecution of 565 first-time offenders, the agency said in a news release on Thursday.”

Misdemeanors now go to federal court.
