ICE Arrests Up By 34.5 Percent During Trump's First 100 Days

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

Numerous priority non-criminal offenders arrested are so-called "arriving aliens", who have recently crossed the border illegally, according to ICE figures.

The operation was conducted from Saturday night through Wednesday.

Among the convictions pinned to the arrests, drug offenses were the most common, with 43 instances. A convicted rapist and previously deported cocaine trafficker were among those arrested in that region, according to ICE.

"By taking these individuals off the streets and removing them from the country, we're making our communities safer for everyone", he added.

While immigration laws have not changed, Kice said President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration enforcement, which was signed in January, has broadened the way federal officials can enforce the law. According to the agency, the arrestees consisted of 177 men and 11 women and included nationals from 11 countries - Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Armenia, Honduras, Russia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Yugoslavia and Cambodia. According to reports, the hunger striker is Vitaly Novikov, a refugee from the former Soviet Union who is protesting ICE's plans to deport him to the Ukraine.

They also could have been arrested for baseline immigration law violations: crossing the border illegally or overstaying a visa. The majority, 146, were identified as nationals from Mexico.

Arrests were made in six southern California counties, including Los Angeles, Orange, and Santa Barbara. "Those persons will be evaluated on a case by case basis and, when appropriate, arrested by ICE", read a statement released by ICE. But that number did increase from 87 such arrests last year to 224 this year.

"His daughter is active-duty military, his son-in-law is active-duty military", Pasquarella said.

At least eight of the individuals arrested during the operation now face federal prosecution for re-entering the United States after being deported, a felony that carries a sentence up to 20 years in prison.

"The same data shows that numerous non-sanctuary jurisdictions saw a higher increase in ICE arrests under Trump policies than did areas with major sanctuaries".

“This is part of their, I think, public relations strategy to say theyre going after people with certain convictions but of course it doesnt tell the whole story of who these people are and the harm that is brought by targeting them and whether its really a sound choice, ” Pasquarella said.

Those who are not being criminally prosecuted will be processed for removal from the country.
