Under the steady hand of President Donald Trump, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents — for the first time in 8 years — are finally able to do the important job they were trained for.
For too long, ICE agents were restrained by the Obama administration and illegals were left to run wild in the streets. But last week, ICE agents set an impressive record for arrests, which was a bold reminder to illegals that they’re no longer able to hide.
Washington Examiner reports:
As promised, immigration police have expanded their campaign to deport illegals with criminal records, announcing the seizure of 368 illegals in seven states and Washington, D.C.
That nearly a 250 percent increase over the 106 announced a week earlier.
The biggest seizures by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were in Texas, but they made arrests as far north as Wyoming.
What’s more, they targeted members of the violent MS-13 gang and illegals charged with sex crimes against kids.
In one five-day campaign around Virginia and Washington, 82 illegals from 26 countries were arrested. ICE described them this way:
Of the 82 individuals arrested, 68 had previous criminal convictions for crimes like armed robbery, larceny and drug distribution. Of the remaining 14, two had ties to the MS-13 street gang; two had outstanding final orders of removal; three had overstayed their visas; one was wanted by a foreign law enforcement entity; one was a verified human rights violator and two had pending local charges. The remainder had unlawfully entered the United States in violation of U.S. immigration laws.
The administration has been signaling that it plans arrest more criminal illegals and deport them. The threats and action seem to have curbed the flow of illegal immigration across the border.
