Democrats have been rioting against President Trump’s promise about cracking down on illegal immigration, and fear is running among the immigrant communities, as 200 arrests have been made by ICE in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. The full statistics from the arrests will be made public on Monday, reports Liberty Writers News.
These actions are the first concerted effort by ICE under the Trump administration to arrest targeted undocumented immigrants for deportation proceedings.
An ICE official confirmed that only routine actions targeting criminals were underway and most of the arrests were people that had prior felony convictions such as: sex crimes, weapons or assault charges.
Immigration officials say they made roughly 200 arrests in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina and as Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro said, the same thing was going on across all of Texas.
Here are is the list of raids that has occurred so far:
- Southern California had 160 arrests of dangerous illegals with criminal backgrounds.
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
“ICE Fugitive Operations teams are out every day as part of routine, targeted enforcement operations,” said acting press secretary Gillian Christensen. “These are existing, established fugitive operations teams. ICE does not conduct sweeps or raids that target aliens indiscriminately. ICE only conducts targeted enforcement of criminal aliens and other individuals who are in violation of our nation’s immigration laws.”
