Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Sunday said illegal immigrants brought by their parents to the United States as children still could be "subject to being deported," sounding a different tone than President Donald Trump on the issue.

In an interview on ABC News' "This Week," Sessions said Trump is sympathetic to the so-called Dreamers.

"There’s no doubt the president has sympathy for young people who were brought here at early ages," he said.

Trump on Friday insisted "We aren't looking to do anything right now" about the illegal immigrants granted protection under the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and that they should "rest easy."

"Well, we'll see," Sessions responded to the president's remark.

"I believe that everyone that enters the country unlawfully is subject to being deported. However, we've got — we don't have the ability to round up everybody and there's no plans to do that," he said. "But we're going to focus first, as the president has directed us, on the criminal element. And we have got to get that under control."
