Under the order given by President Donald Trump, the ICE agents started working restlessly to keep the citizens of our nation safe by rounding up and arresting criminal aliens.
The most recent reports state that ICE agents managed to round up 153 illegals during a huge raid in Texas, in a course of 11 days.
The whole raid was a part of a standard targeted enforcement operation, which lasted a period of 12 days starting from March 20 to 31, and stretched across the cities of San Antonio, Austin, Laredo and Rio Grande Valley in Texas. Immigrants that had entered our country illegally and undocumented were all arrested during the busts.
“ICE’s primary immigration enforcement efforts target convicted criminal aliens,” stated the field office director for ERO in San Antonio, Daniel Bible. “Consequently, our operations improve overall public safety by removing these criminals from our streets, and ultimately from our country.”
The biggest amount of arrests was made in San Antonio, with approximately 62 people arrested. 24 women and men were arrested in Austin and 29 in Laredo, while 38 of them were in Harlingen which is located near Rio Grande Valley.
137 of the total number of arrested illegals had criminal histories such as aggravated assault with weapons, assault of children, driving under influence, robbery and burglary as well as vehicular manslaughter and alien smuggling. One of the top ones were domestic violence and drug possession.
If you ask us, we owe our gratitude to President Trump, who signed an executive order which directed immigration agents to fully implement the laws outlined in the Immigration and Nationality Act.
