ICE Busts 100 in Operation Focusing on Criminal Aliens
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency announced Tuesday the arrest of 101 illegal immigrants, targeting criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants, and immigration violators, and including immigrants convicted of drug- and child-pornography-related offenses.
The arrests were the product of a five-day operation in New Jersey, spearheaded by ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). Among those arrested, 88 percent were convicted criminals, and 80 percent had prior felony convictions.
Convictions of those arrested included a Mexican citizen convicted of sexual assault of a minor, a Turkish citizen convicted of possession of child pornography, a Spanish citizen convicted of storing/maintaining child pornography, and a Dominican and Korean citizen both charged with cocaine distribution.
“The continued results of our Fugitive Operations officers and their law enforcement partners underscore ICE’s ongoing and steady commitment to public safety,” said John Tsoukaris, field office director of ERO Newark. “As part of this operation, we continue focus on the arrest of individuals who are criminal and are a threat to public safety and national security. Because of the tireless efforts of these professional officers, there are 101 fewer criminals in our communities.”
This is great news for law abiding Americans and legal immigrants.
