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

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Fugitive Operations officers make an arrest during a five-day expanded enforcement operation targeting at-large criminal aliens illegal re-entrants and immigration fugitives

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.

The raids were conducted across the greater Los Angeles area, with 93 people arrested in L.A. County, 26 arrested in Riverside, and 23 arrested in Orange County. Some of the individuals taken into custody had re-entered the country after being deported and now face federal charges for violating immigration laws again, authorities said.

"It'll be up to a judge to decide whether or not they'll be allowed to remain in the US", she said. According to ICE, some of the detained immigrants had ignored deportation ultimatums.
