ICE arrested over one hundred foreigners who were in the US illegally, with many of them wanted criminals. The Daily Wire reports:
A five-day operation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in New Jersey has taken into custody 105 foreign nationals who were in the U.S. illegally. Approximately 80% of those arrested “had prior criminal convictions and/or pending criminal charges,” according to a statement from ICE. ICE did not make clear how the other 20% were included in this operation.
None of the suspects were named, but descriptions of some of them and their crimes were included in the statement. Individuals arrested came from 24 countries around the world, including Canada, Egypt, Guatemala, Korea, Mexico, Poland, and Russia. They were found across the state of New Jersey, and two were arrested in New York. Their ages ranged from 18 to 65 and their crimes varied from fraud to drugs to child abuse to theft.
Four of the individuals arrested had Interpol warrants out for their arrest for crimes they had committed in their home countries. A 59-year-old Korean national was wanted “for the crime of indecent acts by compulsion causing bodily injury,” according to the ICE statement. A 44-year-old Korean national was wanted for distributing psychotropic drugs, a 34-year-old Ecuadorian national was wanted for fraud, and a 54-year-old Russian national was wanted for large-scale fraud.
The operation was overseen by ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations and supported by the department’s Homeland Security Investigations, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s New Jersey Field Office.
Criminal deportation is absolutely critical if America is to be made safer.
