ICE Arrests 500 Illegals in ‘Sanctuary’ Jurisdictions

(Brendan Kirby, Lifezette) Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested 498 people from 42 countries during a four-day operation that targeted illegal immigrants who were living in so-called “sanctuary” cities and counties.

Authorities said they did not target or arrest illegal immigrants enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Acting ICE Director Tom Homan blasted policies adopted by hundreds of counties and cities that impede the efforts of federal authorities to apprehend illegal immigrants who have committed other crimes.

“Sanctuary jurisdictions that do not honor detainers or allow us access to jails and prisons are shielding criminal aliens from immigration enforcement and creating a magnet for illegal immigration,” he said in a statement. “As a result, ICE is forced to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests in these communities.”

ICE arrested 107 people in Philadelphia alone, and another 101 in Los Angeles. Other arrests took place in Denver (63), Massachusetts (50), New York (45), Portland, Oregon (33), Illinois’ Cook County (30), Baltimore (28), California’s Santa Clara (27) and Washington, D.C. (14).

ICE officials said 317 of those arrested had criminal convictions. Agents also nabbed 18 gang members and 104 illegal immigrants who previously had been deported.

The most common conviction of those arrested was for driving under the influence of alcohol. But the crimes included aggravated assault, burglary, rape, weapons violations, sexual assault and rape.

“It’s not the driver with a broken taillight that they would like you to think … These are not minor crimes,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies.

Vaughan said the operation reveals just how dangerous sanctuary cities are.

“It’s pretty shocking, the sheer number of criminal aliens with serious convictions, serious criminal histories, that were released back into the communities even though ICE told them they wanted to take them back into custody,” she said.

Local officials who adopt sanctuary policies often justify them by arguing that ICE enforcement intimidates immigrants and makes them less likely to report crimes. But Vaughan said ICE would operate much more discreetly if officers could pick up illegal immigrants at jails rather than having to hunt them down one by one in neighborhoods.

“Sanctuary policies cannot stop immigration enforcement,” she said. “What they do is produce just the kind of enforcement that the opponents say is bad … ICE should be commended for refusing to back down.”

But Vaughan said such operations take longer to plan, require more manpower and increase the danger for ICE officers and law-abiding residents.

David Cross, a spokesman for Oregonians for Immigration Reform, rejected the premise that cooperating with ICE chills crime reporting and makes communities less safe. He said that makes as much sense as arguing that local police make their communities less safe by cooperating with the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Cross cheered the 33 arrests that took place in Portland. He noted that the most current data from the Oregon Department of Corrections indicates that 209 prisoners from Multnomah County — of which Portland is the county seat — are illegal immigrants. That is the second highest of any county in the state.

Cross said the county’s sheriff, Mike Reese, has adopted a hard-core sanctuary policy toward ICE.

“He’s not communicating whatsoever, whereas other sheriffs in Oregon have shared information on some level,” he said.

Cross said he does not anticipate that Multnomah County and other jurisdictions will change their policies. He aid they are extremely progressive cities and counties.

“So they’re gonna push back,” he said.

Some of those arrested in “Operation Safe City” include:

  • A woman from El Salvador who entered the United States illegally on a fraudulent passport and previously was charged with attempted murder/conspiracy to commit murder and convicted of first-degree assault. Local officials released her before ICE apprehended her in Baltimore.
  • A Guatemalan man who previously was convicted of felony menacing, child abuse, assault and six DUIs. ICE arrested him in Denver.
  • A Mexican man and member of the Colonia Chiques gang. Officials said he rammed several law-enforcement vehicles in an attempt to avoid arrest in Los Angeles. He had a loaded handgun in his pocket, according to ICE.
  • A citizen of Ecuador who was a lawful permanent resident and had been convicted of sexual abuse of a child younger than 14. New York authorities released him to rather than turn him over to ICE.
  • A Mexican citizen who entered the United States on a visa and remained for 10 years after it expired and was convicted of felony possession and purchase of drug and felony child cruelty with the possibility of injury or death. Officials in San Jose, California, previously released from local custody before ICE could take him in to custody.

      Start deporting or jailing liberal terrorists. That would put an end to sanctuary cities.

            Do you understand the meaning of the word “peaceably”?

          • AKLady

            Do you understand that rioting is an American tradition?
            Suggest you study some history.

          • IrreverentOne

            It appears to me that you are in favor of rioting as a means of achieving your goal. Whatever that goal may be. A question, if you don’t mind. What goal do the Antifa “protesters” have?

          • AKLady

            Antifa is a contraction of the word “anti-fascist”.
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifa

            Rioting is an American tradition.
            The Boston Tea Party was part of a riot.

          • IrreverentOne

            I don’t believe that I asked you for the definition of Antifa. I would like to know what you believe their goal is.

          • AKLady

            What the have professed is what is in the term which form their name. Why don’t you visit their web site?

          • IrreverentOne

            Why would I visit the website of an organization or group that I have personally seen commit acts of violence upon both public and private properties. You continue to avoid answering a simple question. What do you BELIEVE is the main goal of Antifa, simple question.

          • AKLady

            Suggest you obtain a better history education.
            There have been groups labeled “Antifa” since the 1960s. The far-right includes neo-Nazis and white supremacists .

          • IrreverentOne

            Yeah, yeah, and the far left included, and still includes, just as many groups that rely on stupidity to retain their members. If you cannot, or will not, answer a reasonable question then you and I have no reason to attempt to find any middle ground. I actually thought that if two responsible adults could find a middle ground where common sense prevailed it would be possible to find two more and then two more. Keep that up and before you know it we have enough of us to change things.

          • AKLady

            You spewed one insult too many.
            Good-by.

          • IrreverentOne

            Please, please. Don’t leave me now. I will miss your scintillating sense of decency and your utter belief in telling nothing but the truth. Just think of the amazing differences we could make together. Aaaah, BS, why not just take your stupidity and wrap it up in your abject inability to determine right from wrong.

          • Maxine Albritton

            when it comes to beating up people, burning and destroying property that is not freedom of speech and not legal. that type of rioting is not legal under any circumstances.

            If an American was driving illegally without a license, he could very well spend 30 days in jail, probably a couple hundred hours of public service, a hefty fine, & after a year, maybe get a license and then pay hefty insurance premiums for a good number of years.

            I was in Atlanta metro area in, I think it was 2007. I pulled up behind a car at a stop sign and two ladies pulled up behind me. It was dark out. Around the curve comes a car going full blast and slammed into the ladies, who slammed into me, and pushed me into the car in front of me. Damage to front and back of my vehicle, I am sure the ladies car was probably totaled and the car in front of me suffered minor damage.

            The driver who slammed into our vehicles was an illegal, drunk, and jumped out of his vehicle and began to run. I ended up tackling him and holding him on the ground till the police arrived. Turned out he was driving his friends car (an illegal) with no Insurance.

            The two ladies were taken to the hospital. I went to court and the two ladies had collars on their necks. No illegals to be found and the courts and police had no ideas where they were.

            I am sure those ladies will have probably have had problems all of their lives, and it is up to them to figure out how to pay for their hospital bills.

            I had to pay the deductible to repair my vehicle.

            If you or I would have been that driver, just think what you would have to legally go through, yet those two illegals are probably still driving with no license or insurance.

            These types of accidents are never reported.

            I have no quarrel with legals. In fact I have a niece who is married to a Mexican national and has been in the US legally for many years and a Cousin who is Married to a Mexican National and has lived peaceably between Mexico and the U.S for many years. Both are very functional families.

            Illegals who break the law are definitely a frustration for me.

          You are NOT a liberal terrorist, as Kep implied!
          You are a left-wing, elitist White supremacist!
          Don’t you think that describes you better?

          • AKLady

            How can someone be both right-wing and leftist?

          • Bernie

            AK,
            Huhhhh?
            That made absolutely no sense.
            And you call yourself “educated”?

          • AKLady

            White supremacy is a radical, right-wing ideology.

          • Bernie

            Boy did you fall into that trap.
            The left-wing White supremacists are a bigger danger to minorities than any right-wing ideology.
            Your left-wing ideology created the blighted communities of color.
            Your left-wing, White supremacy thinks they know what’s better for people of color.
            White supreamacy has no left or right home.
            But as an ex-South Side Chicago democrat (me), I can tell you what is a greater danger to the minority community.

          • AKLady

            Your opinion is not fact.

            AK,
            It’s NOT an opinion.
            I lived it!
            I saw an area that was a White middle class, liberal community that voted 80% democrat flee in fear.
            As soon as the first Black family moved in, those so-called liberals fled en mass, taking their wealth and valuable resources with them. Come see the blight and conditions that remain.
            So yes, the left-wing, White phony liberals are the greater danger to people of color.
            Pick up a copy of Jason Riley’s “Please Stop Helping Us”.
            Sorry to break your ill-informed ideological bubble.

          • AKLady

            More proof of your left-wing White supremacy. Thinking you know more than someone that actually lived and saw how the left destroyed whole communities. I invite you to come see.
            In short, you’re a racist and don’t even realize it!
            Sad…Very sad.
            So again, pick up a copy of Jason Riley’s book and read what the left and YOU have done to people of color.

            AK,
            “An ignoramious….”
            MORE proof you’re an elitist, left-wing, racist, White supremacist.
            Imagine if a conservative called me an ignoramois?.

          • AKLady,
            I see you are standing up to those who refute you. I will offer this tidbit. I have never had typing lessons. I do advanced hunt and peck. My computer gets the blame for my mistakes. So, we have our faults. We are human. I see you were polite in our responses mostly. That is always good. But you are up against a bunch of individuals who don’t see beyond their own thoughts. We need to come together with thoughts and then look for some sort of commonality. That is lacking in many of these responses.
            I do believe that some are presenting facts that need to be considered. On the other hand, like you say, you are basing some of that you say on past actual experiences. That is a vital issue they choose to gloss over. I would hope that both sides rethink what they are saying.

          • AKLady

            Admitting shortcomings has proven to stand in my favor,
            I attempt to remain polite, however, I am human.
            Considering facts is an important part of decision making.
            Some people can agree to disagree, others cannot.
            You and I tend to follow that path.

          • AKLady,
            What do you know. I hear from you and no one else.Hmmmm. People bashing is not a good plan. I hope I got that across but no response yet..

          • AKLady,

            I wish people would work at disagreeing but with a goal to seek knowlege and to provide our beliefs. We have not always done that but at least we present our sides. It is your cumulative experiences and beliefs on your past thoughts and actual events. Mine are as well. You politely present yours and I do the same. If we do not agree, we do so with a sense of presenting out thoughts based on what we know and from experiences. I have appreciated your interest in past nations and races. While we may seem to have disagreed, I still did some research to better understand the points you were making. I benefited and hope you did as well.

          • AKLady

            Thank you. First, it is good talking to you again. It has been awhile.
            One learns from debate. If you want to be the “winner” you must do research. 😉 We have both benefitted from our discussions.

      Local police do not have jurisdiction to enforce federal law.

      • Kevin Soravilla

        That is correct. However when a illegal alien commits a felony in the jurisdiction of the police making the arrest. ICE should and will be contacted to take custody.

          Thank you, was about to make the same comment!

            A person cannot be held indefinitely, even if ICE requests a hold. Before “removal”, the individual must e provided a heating.

            Were you too going to say “a illegal immigrant”?

            That’s a weird coincidence. Not many people struggle with that simple concept.

        • AKLady

          And just how do they prove the accused is an illegal?
          Remember, in the U.., one is innocent until proven guilty.
          Do you walk around with your birth certificate in your wallet?
          If stopped, how would you prove you are in the country legally?

          • Simple, no license, no social security card, no credit card, no ID at all, then person is likely an illegal, PERIOD.

          • AKLady

            None of those items are re

          • It is the perception of needing ID which will send them running. If you have nothing, the odds are 100% they are illegals.

          • Nihle65

            DRIVERS LICENSES- SOCIAL SECURITY CARDS,- STATE ID’S… just to name a few. IT IS THE STATE LAW (state i live in) THAT ONE MUST POSSES SOME FORM OF IDENTIFICATION. EVERY PERSON IN AMERICA SHOULD CARRY AT LEAST 1 FORM OF IDENTIFICATION AT ALL TIMES!!!

          • AKLady

            Not true.
            Social Security Cards are not identification.
            There is a wide gap between should and must.

            Are you suggesting my mayor and police department can tell me and you to not pay our federal income taxes?
            Are you saying that my mayor can make my city a “sanctuary” federal tax free zone?
            Got it….

          • AKLady

            There are no federal or state laws requiring anyone to have or get a Social Security Number.

          • Bernie

            Still more blabbering.
            What the heck does getting a SS number have to do with paying federal income taxes?
            I still want my city to become a sanctuary federal tax free zone.
            Are you saying our local governments can pick and choose what federal laws they can abide to?

  • Every civil or religious authority giving sanctuary to unlawful immigrants should be held complicit in their crimes and punished according to the Bible’s altogether righteous civil sanctions (per Psalm 19:7-9) for said crimes. This would quickly put an end to this criminal behavior, not only that of the unlawfuls but those giving sanctuary to them.

    Normally I would agree with you, but right now in my state they arrest everyone who is young, or lives in the city some are even old people. They lie and make up anything and don’t care because maybe you will confess so you can get out of being in jail for months. Mr. President, please help us here! There is no justice here, you spend all of your money to get a defense and they are afraid of making the judges mad. The judges go right along with the corruption and are even a part of it. People here are in trouble they are innocent but being put into jails because they can. Many cave to get a plea deal because they put you in jail for 6 months or more at a time until you can get a trial. The bails are over 100.000 cash which people do not have…the corruption here has made everyone a criminal. The only ones safe do not live in Wilmington, de.

    If you have a criminal in your house and fail to report it to the police, You are guilty of harboring a criminal. The same goes for the politicians who harbor a criminal and turn them loose in society while ignoring ICE are also guilty of a crime, mostly felonies. If some of them are arrested, it would wake up the rest of them.

  • Deborah

    God Bless ICE! Finally they are able to do the job of protecting our citizens and clean up all these dangerous illegals. But you’re right, the people letting them go need to be prosecuted too. It’s the only way to stop this insanity.

  • sally

    The President should declare Martial Law and start in CA. Arrest all Governors, state officials, Police Chiefs that are not in compliance with the Federal Law and our Constitution. It is the Federal Governments responsibility to protect our country from foreign and domestic enemies.

    • Chris S.

      i don’t think the Martial Law thing is a good idea .. and yes Dinesh D’Souza is a bit of a firebrand.. even a broken clock is right twice a day…got Obama’s poltical past right.. other than that…he’s way off the mark.. America is a country that was built by immigration.. and last i check immigration is NOT a crime and aboout “… foreign and domestic” foreign is self-explanitory… domestic is people who actually break the law, defect as spies/agents of foreign governments and stuff liket that , last i checked anyway…

      • sally

        Chris,
        Of course you would think Martial Law is not a good thing. You are one of them. That is your talking point we all know them. Yes America was built by legal immigration and that is the key legal not illegal and not people that refuse to simulate and not people who come to live off everyone else. Illegals are breaking the law and America is a country that believes in the Rule of Law. You better educate yourself. What are you even talking about domestic and foreign??? If you mean citizens belong to the social compact, illegals (Not citizens) do not belong to the social compact and are not entitled to any of the rights of a citizen. Like I said educate yourself.

      tecchnically you’re right local law enforcemnet needs to get better at their jobs with the caveat of they’re supposed to protect EVERY memeber of the comunity they took the other to serve and protect not just the anti-immigrant minority who want at or below 0% immigration.. despite the fact that it’s immigrants doing the jobs NOBODY else wants… it’s always been that way.. just that the minority is getting more vocal courtesy of President Trump won election 2016… personally?? thankfully i don’t see the 0% immigration movemnet becoming mainstream any time soon.. fair comparison the “White Power!!!!” KKK people … does the movement still exist ??? unfortunately yes .. is it mainstream??? NO and it should never be/become mainstream

  • Maxine Albritton

    CUT THEIR FUNDING. If a jurisdiction does not want to uphold their end of the Constitutional responsibility in the federalist system, then they shouldn’t receive the benefits. They are taking a knee with the illegals and disrespecting their legal, taxpaying voters and this country.

Then ICE can take a break and let the low lives convince the sanctuary cities of their errors. People who live in sanctuary cities can put up and shut up. Or move out and pay taxes elsewhere.

  • Kmat

    Good to know Sanctuary Cities have some value. Just like turning a light on at night, the moths will come. Easier to get them all in one place.

  • Ronald Allen

    go get them we don’t that kind of people here and we don’t need to give these resorses we can’t afford

  • E Pluribus Trumpus 🇺🇸🇺🇸

    Awww, that’s a shame! Poor illegals! Chuckie must be crying 😭!

  • 8gary8

    Is it a surprise that are interminable, plutocratic class are self-centered & self-serving? Is perpetuating illegal immigration not used to depress employer cost? Does such behavior not deliberately have a negative impact on the middle-class? In short, we continue to be played by a manipulated system controlled the financial & political elites!

  • Dan Topp

    Thank you President Trump. Cook County is a “taxation without representation”cesspool.

  • JWH (NRA LIFE)

    Very good work, continue this progress and deport them all ASAP!! Sanctuary cities and counties equal EXCREMENT PLACES!!

    That is why I live in a RURAL Area of California at this time!!!

  • Bruce Wayne

    Head em up, move em out…

  • And how could these liberal loser mayors and police chiefs condone such protection of these obvious violent felons and illegals, it just makes no sense. Start by locking up Rahm Emanuel

    • Chris S.

      …more like start by removing Trump from the White House… peacfully if at all possible by full force of law if needed

      • In your dreams, or a nightmare for liberal losers as president gets tax reform and reduction passes without need for one worthless demonrat vote.

  • wiselatina2theright

    There should be no exception for DACA.. The public should start reporting suspicious immigration activity….call 1-866-DHS-2ICE Report the employers who choose to hire and often exploit illegal alien labor to the detriment of American workers ready, willing and able to do the job.

    • Chris S.

      .. i’m not sure about DACA… i don’t know much about it so no comment there….. but i will say this.. our immigration system is capital B broken.. don’t like that??? elect someone that’ll fight to change it…..oh and i don’t know about you … but would you like living in a hut because people won’t do the construction??? not being able to eat out?? because restaurants.. won’t be able to run food prep+ because nobody wants to do that + their supplies will be way more expensive because they’ll be much be rarer since there’s nobody harvesting the agriculture.. it’ll be way more expensive than it already is…. like your landscaping ?? not likely to happen beyond the bare minimum of weed control.. plumbing, electirc.,.. ??? forget about it .. not happening.. same way it’s always been.. immigrants doing the jobs nobody else wants … [personally i like eating out every so often, having working plumbing and electric, and having the property [at the apartments where i am] upkept and reasonably well maintained aka, keep the lawn trimmed, and stuff like that…not fancy.. but it shouldn’t look like a complete forest – the super tall trees either] and i’ll give you about Americans being able to do the job[s]… but ready and willing???? not so much… you want to stop immigration period???.. not likely to happen anytime soon… unless and until there are American workers willing to do the job [s].. that’s what’s in short supply there… personally??? i say this.. we need to fix the system.. improve and enforce better border security, and simpilify the red tape for the process to come to here .. for the undocumented immigrants already here???…pay your taxes, be a productive member of your community don’t get a criminal record, pathway to citizenship, you commit a crime ??? you go to jail [or other legal sentencing as determined by the court] just like any other criminal, serve your time.. crime doesn’t pay

  • keepersleeper

    I hope ICE keeps up the good work and cleanses our communities of these criminals!

  • fantomnutt

    Let’s hope this next federal budget allows for the withholding of funds for being a sanctuary anything and not cooperating with ICE. That will change some minds.

  • gideonrockwell

    It’s a good start. Now go after the people who created those sanctuary cities and aided and abetted the crime.

  • Gary Von Neida

    Charge the Sanctuary Cities for the costs involved in arresting these criminals that is being done while hampered by city officials. Hit Them in the pocketbook.

  • pj4me

    KUDOS!!! DEPORT THE CRIMINALS!!

  • DJT Supporter

    Department of Justice should orders to arrest defunct defiant local sheriffs and chiefs across this country and US mainlands to prevent ICE / DEA / Border Police to arrest all illegal criminal immigrants including DACA illegals and overstay visa. Every city must comply with the Federal Laws regardless of their own laws on sanctuary policies. Sanctuary cities must close down immediately and report to law enforcements of all illegal immigrants.

  • Boomergirl

    Sanctuary cities are actually harsher to illegal immigrants because instead of rounding them up at the jails, ICE is forced to go out into their neighborhoods where their family members are more likely to be picked up with them. I believe illegals will eventually begin to understand this and hopefully argue with the Latino activists and law enforcement to discontinue sanctuary city policies.

  • Arthur Gucci

    Where are we? How can anyone release criminals without punishment. If I harbor a fugitive then make a way for him or or to run if police are coming to arrest them I would be in deep you know what. Aiding and abetting.
    Is this true, I keep reading stories like this but how how how?

  • Irredeemably Deplorable

    Interesting, local law enforcement releasing illegals back onto the streets, refusing to cooperate with feds and endangering local citizens. How does this represent “progressive” anything? This is regressive, oppressive and reckless disregard for human life. Oh, wait, that is the definition of liberal/socialist/Democrats.

  • Carl

    These so called illegal emigrants or mexcans who think they can get away with anything and they do this cause they come her ILLEGAL and that makes them a criminal even tho they will not admit to it that it makes them think criminal so they act criminal. We have to live with these so called criminal illegals as our neighbors and most of them are harbored by their relatives and you cannot trust any of them because they are criminals and so our their relatives who harbor them they should all be arrested and sent back home and forfeit anything that they own here and should not be allowed to take anything back that was purchased here in USA except their belongings, we need to stop giving them sympathy and doing for them, stop all the BS and they will eventually go away.DEPORT ALL MEXCANS illegal and legal. They are all the devils people.

  • Mike Villalobos

    “The most common conviction of those arrested was for driving under the influence of alcohol.” According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2015, 10,265 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (29%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States. While drunk-driving deaths were down for certain vehicle types—including motorcycles and semi-trucks—fatal crashes involving passenger cars increased 5%. Of the 11,132 traffic deaths among children ages 0 to 14 years in 2015, 209 (16%) involved an alcohol-impaired driver.

  • RunnerFriendly

    These people should not be in this country. Certainly be arrested for the crimes they’ve committed. There needs to be a respect for our laws no matter where you were born. This country will never get back on the right track, if the wrong path is the most widely traveled.

  • Cosmic

    The ones helping these criminals need to be charged with criminal conspiracy, aiding and abetting, and thrown in jail

  • Fred K

    To that AK Lady! You got it right, Peaceful assembly! Ask yourself: Is antifa doing that? Is destroying property at Berkely peaceful. Think about that, AKLady.

  • Julio Martinez

  • Julio Martinez

  • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

    The job won’t be complete until the councils that voted for sanctuary ordinances and the mayors who signed them into law are arrested for harboring illegals and conspiracy to violate immigration law.

  • carl

    We need laws to have sanctuary city officials host illegal immigrant criminals in their own homes for a weekend sleep over.

  • Larry Baker

    At what point did we allow states to ignore federal laws? This is disgusting and sends a very wrong message.

  • David Ciambrone

    so-called “sanctuary” cities and counties are a joke. Start arresting the local police chiefs and sheriffs for failure to comply with federal law!
    These people are in the country “ILLEGALLY”! This means they are criminals!!!!!
