President Donald Trump’s vow to crack down on illegal border crossers is really taking shape.
Feds in New Jersey just wrapped a five-day operation that led to the arrest of 101 illegals.
This isn’t the first federal operation of this nature under Trump’s administration. In June, a similar one went forth:
And it’s probably not going to be the last.
This most recent one netted all kinds of criminals — not the illegals the left likes to sell as coming to the country simply to find suitable work and send money home to families. No. These illegals were drug users, sexual offenders, cocaine distributors and the like.
Breitbart has more:
Federal officers in New Jersey arrested 101 illegal immigrants–most with criminal histories–during a targeted, five-day operation that ended Friday. Those arrested include people with convictions for sexual assault of a minor, child abuse, distribution of drugs, possession of child porn, a variety of sexual offenses, and other violence.
Of those arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations officers, 88 percent had previous convictions for criminal offenses–80 percent had felony records–according to information from ICE.
ICE officials provided the following examples of some of the criminal aliens arrested in the operation:
- A Mexican citizen convicted of sexual assault of a minor
- A Turkish citizen convicted of possession of child pornography
- A Peruvian citizen convicted of invasion of privacy-recording a sexual act w/o consent
- A Colombian citizen convicted of aggravated battery and domestic violence assault
- A Spanish citizen convicted of storing/maintaining child pornography
- A Philippines citizen convicted of possession of methamphetamine
- A Dominican citizen convicted of cocaine distribution and possession
- A Guyanese citizen convicted of aggravated assault with a weapon
- An Egyptian citizen convicted of possession of heroin
- An El Salvadorian citizen convicted of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury
- A Korean citizen convicted of distribution of cocaine
Those arrested in the operation include illegal immigrants from: Brazil (3), Colombia (4), Congo (1), Costa Rica (3), Cuba (4), Dominican Republic (18), Ecuador (2), Egypt (2), El Salvador (7), Ethiopia (1), Georgia (1), Guatemala (6), Guyana (3), Haiti (3), Honduras (8), Jamaica (1), Korea (2), Liberia (1), Mexico (15), Nicaragua (1), Nigeria (1), Pakistan (1), Philippines (2), Peru (2), Portugal (1), Spain (2), Turkey (2), United Kingdom (1), Ukraine (1), Venezuela (1) and Vietnam (1).
“The continued results of our Fugitive Operations officers and their law enforcement partners underscore ICE’s ongoing and steady commitment to public safety,” Neward ERO Field Office Director John Tsoukaris said in a written statement. “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.”
Agents from Homeland Security Investigations and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers assisted in the successful operation.
“HSI is committed to leveraging its broad jurisdiction to further public safety in New Jersey,” Michael McCarthy, acting special agent in charge for HSI Newark, said in the statement.
CBP’s New York Field Office acting director Leon Hayward added, “It is through collaborative efforts, such as the one leading to these arrests, that law enforcement agencies can combat illegal acts and apprehend criminals who pose a threat to the Homeland.”
These arrests occurred about the same time ERO officers in Kentucky and Michigan rounded up nearly 50 illegal immigrants including many violent felons, Breitbart Texas reported.
