Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the federal government is stepping up its fight against opioid-related crimes online.

Dubbed the Joint Criminal Opiod Darknet Enforcement Team, or J-Code, the task force will focus on opioid sales transacted on the darkweb.

The team will more than double the FBI's investment in fighting online opioid trafficking.

He then thanked all the law enforcement officers on behalf of President Donald Trump and spoke further about the deadly school shooting.

Sessions's emphasis on immigration enforcement is also clear from his decisions to send more than 100 immigration judges across the country to help process immigration cases, and to create the position of Border Security Coordinator in U.S. Attorney's Offices around the country.

"It is looking like 2017 will see another increase, but the preliminary data appears to show that the increase will not be as drastic", Mr. Sessions said.

"These are not numbers - these are moms, dads, daughters, spouses, friends, and neighbors", Sessions said before bringing up the death of 7-year-old Jo Lawrence Stewart, of North Braddock.

Sessions says an estimated 64,000 Americans died of overdose in 2016. He says the Opioid Fraud and Abuse Detection Unit will also target "hot spot" districts, including Kentucky.
