The liberal New York Times is reporting that the the Trump Administration’s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has made more than 600 arrests in the past 7 days. These illegal aliens need to be put behind bars or sent home.
Clearly, President Trump means business when it comes to “making America safe again.”
Federal immigration officials arrested more than 600 people across at least 11 states last week, detaining 40 people in the New York City area, law enforcement officials said on Sunday.
It remained unclear whether the actions by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were part of continuing operations to round up illegal immigrants with criminal convictions or a ramping-up of deportations by the Trump administration.
President Trump proclaimed on Twitter early Sunday morning: “The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!”
But Gillian Christensen, acting press secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, said, “The focus of these targeted enforcement operations is consistent with the routine, targeted arrests carried out by ICE’s Fugitive Operations Teams on a daily basis.”
The New York operation was planned one week ago and was part of a national action that was planned several weeks ago, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.
“New York was late to the game,” said an agency official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because details about who had been detained were still being learned. The official said the arrests had not been impromptu and had been planned around individuals’ routines, adding that a fuller account would be available on Monday.
“All these people are in violation of some sort of immigration law,” the official said, adding that some of their convictions included rape and aggravated assault. “We’re not going out to Walmart to check papers — we know who we are going out to seek.”
The rest of the article is very biased, claiming that anti-illegal immigration websites have exaggerated these reports, and the top image is a “Stop Separating Families” protest sign. It’s clear that the New York Times wants people to think that Trump and his administration are going around the streets arresting random, average people. But these are actual criminals who were just too comfortable breaking the law during Barack Obama’s 8 years in the White House:
