ICE agents made hundreds of arrests across the Midwest and the District of Columbia during a weeklong enforcement measure by ICE. As The Daily Wire reports:
More than 100 additional arrests were made during last week’s Immigration Customs and Enforcement’s operation than previously reported.
The Daily Wire reported Saturday that 443 illegal immigrants, the majority of which had previous criminal histories, were arrested as part of a week-long enforcement action by ICE. The agency has since released new information showing that an additional 154 criminal aliens were arrested during that time throughout the Midwest and in the Washington, D.C. and Virginia areas.
Fifty-seven illegal immigrants were arrested in D.C. and Virginia, including 41 with prior arrests, pending charges, or past convictions for crimes including sexual assault, aggravated assault, driving under the influence and drug-related offenses.
“We focus our resources on those who pose a threat to public safety. The arrests made during this targeted enforcement action required weeks of preparation and research by our officers,” said Lyle Boelens, acting field office director for ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations office in Washington, D.C. “This is the kind of work our officers do every day to help make our communities safer.”
It’s yet another victory for the Trump administration in it’s fight against the radical Democrat agenda of open borders.
