Sessions to discuss immigration in Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - Attorney General Jeff Sessions will discuss his immigration priorities in an event in Fort Wayne this week.

Sessions will deliver remarks on Thursday in the suite level of Parkview Field, the Justice Department said Tuesday. A news release only stated that Sessions plans to "deliver remarks on the immigration priorities of the Trump Administration."

No other information was released.

It's not clear if the event will be open to the public.

President Donald Trump and Sessions both have identified the fight against illegal immigration as a priority. Trump campaigned on a "Build the Wall" slogan where he promised to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico to combat illegal immigration.

A rally has been organized to protest Sessions' visit to Fort Wayne. A group called "People For the Common Good" will gather outside Parkview Field. The group has encouraged residents to "come with signs to let him know that separating children from their parents at the border is unacceptable and is crossing a moral line."
