160 arrested across southern California in immigration crackdown: 150 had criminal histories

And yet libtards are still upset with deporting illegal criminal aliens.
From CBS Los Angeles: Federal immigration officials say 160 people were arrested across the Southland over the past week during a crackdown targeting “criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants and immigration fugitives.”
The arrests took place in six counties during what U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials described as a “five-day targeted enforcement operation” that began Monday and wrapped up around noon Friday.
Of the 160 arrested, about 150 had criminal histories, while five more had either been previously deported or had “final orders of removal”. Many of those arrested had prior felony convictions for “serious or violent offenses” including child sex crimes and assault.
The arrestees – which were 95 percent male – included nationals from a dozen countries, according to ICE.
Immigration advocates said they fielded calls Thursday from immigrants and lawyers reporting raids at homes and businesses in the greater Los Angeles area, including Van Nuys, Downey, Oxnard, San Bernardino, and other cities.
Lawyer Karla Navarrete said Friday agents looking for one man arrested another who is in the country illegally but has no criminal record. Navarrete says she sought to stop the man’s deportation and was told by ICE that things had changed. She says another lawyer filed federal court papers to halt it.
Multiple reports on social media suggested similar raids were conducted in Atlanta, Austin, and other U.S. cities, but there was no immediate confirmation from federal officials.
A report released Thursday showed nearly one in five immigrants in the U.S. illegally live in either the Los Angeles or New York City metropolitan areas. The report released by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center estimates more than 2 million immigrants in the country illegally lived in the two areas in 2014.

There is that remember that it stay illegal in a nation is a crime very severe.
I had to have made the former President of the United States did not, and Trump does now.
Them countries of origin of those emigrants (if are Christian or related with the race white) must of cover them expenses of the arrests and his possible deportation.
Pure common sense.


Good start….+80% criminal history….I’m bettin’ 100%..….


Lucky for them that they landed in California-LAW doesn’t MATTER there.


There’s a new sheriff in town. Round ’em up and send ’em packing. Cut off the benefits and seize any remittances by illegals. Check out the motels along the skid row spots throughout the nation. ICE should hire out of work veterans and let ’em have at it. Let the cops do their jobs. They already know where the bad guys are. And stop this ‘anchor baby’ nonsense.


Let this continue! And all that protest, let them, also, be arrested AND deported!
Time to separate the wheat from the chaff….


160 is the best start we have had in a long time. Wait until they start looking at fake paperwork, which usually involved innocent legal people getting damaged.
I am all for it.
I read last week that less than 5% actually do the work the rest won’t do. That means there is a whole lot of dead weight in this country.
And those on social services and able to work need to start work and earning their social services money. Picking up trash, painting graffiti, cleaning parking and restrooms, makes no difference. Watch them leave
