Trump would love this: Dozens of illegal immigrant criminals nabbed by feds

Nearly 200 arrested in California in new immigration raids

A convicted rapist and a previously deported cocaine trafficker were among almost 200 criminal aliens and immigration fugitives arrested in a Los Angeles-area crackdown, authorities said Thursday.

The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement office announced on May 25 that it had arrested 188 individuals as part of a push to apprehend criminal aliens and immigration-related fugitives. The majority of those held - 146 - were from Mexico, but they also hail from Armenia, Thailand, El Salvador, Vietnam, Cambodia, Russia, Yugoslavia, the Philippines, Honduras and Guatemala.

In the first 100 days since President Donald Trump took office, ICE arrested more than 41,000 individuals who were either known or suspected of being in the country illegally.

ICE officials said the effort focused on at-large criminals, illegal re-entrants, and immigration fugitives considered threats to public safety. Among these listed convictions, 43 were drug offenses, 27 were domestic violence incidents, 30 were DUIs and 15 were sex crimes, according to the statement.

The agency stated that two of the arrests had been of a convicted rapist and of a previously deported cocaine trafficker.

The percentage of those arrested in Southern California with criminal records is much higher than in other large cities, where the number of immigrants arrested with no criminal background has increased dramatically, the Times reported.
