“The administration cannot be trusted to enforce any immigration plan from Congress,” Sessions said Friday. “Congressional Democrats, who have helped empower this state of illegality, must be held to account for their actions.”

On Thursday, Obama announced that he asked Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to review the administration’s deportation policies after requests from Hispanic Democrats.

Sessions said the review should be to make sure there is tougher enforcement of deportation laws.

“It is astonishing that the president would order an ‘enforcement review’ not for the purposes of repairing enforcement but weakening it further,” Sessions said.

Sessions has been an ardent critic of the administration’s immigration policies, saying Obama isn’t fully implementing the law by allowing children brought to the country by their parents without documentation — Dreamers — to stay in the United States.

“Illegal immigrants in the U.S. who don’t meet the administration’s ‘priorities’ — even if they come into contact with immigration enforcement — are widely exempt from federal immigration law,” Sessions said. “And approximately two-thirds of removals last year were in fact not deportations at all but were instead of apprehensions of those interdicted crossing the border.”
