During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised Americans that he would crackdown on illegal immigration. The president is a man of his words …
Breitbart reported that 248 illegal aliens were arrested this week in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in cities across Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Delaware. Many of these aliens had prior criminal convictions for things like sex and drug charges.
Out of the 248 arrested illegals, 120 of them had prior convictions or pending charges against them while 50 had been deported in the past. In addition, 18 of them were “immigration fugitives” who had been hit with final deportation orders by a federal judge, and 6 were facing federal charges for coming back into the U.S. illegally using fraudulent documents.
ICE put out a news release saying that the arrests included:
- The arrest of a 34-year-old male citizen of Guatemala with criminal convictions for sexual abuse of a minor. The man has been removed from the United States on two prior occasions. The man has been detained without bond and has been referred to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for criminal prosecution. He’s currently in ICE custody at York County Prison.
- The arrest of a 52-year-old male citizen of Lithuania, with three criminal convictions for driving under the influence. Philadelphia Police Department arrested him on his fourth Feb. 23, 2017. The man was released from Philadelphia Police custody on Feb. 23, 2017, when a detainer lodged with Philadelphia authorities was not honored. The subject is being detained without bond pending immigration proceedings. He’s currently in ICE custody at York County Prison.
- The arrest of a 65-year-old male citizen of Vietnam, with criminal convictions of three counts of manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver marijuana, four counts of conspiracy, two counts of theft of services, and one count of intentional possession of a controlled substance by person not regulated. The arrest resulted in the seizure of over 1100 marijuana plants that were located in a vehicle and a residence owned by the subject. On May 13, 2016, Berks County Court of Common Pleas convicted him of felony charges, which include: one count of manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver marijuana, one count of conspiracy, and one count of theft of services. He is being held without bond pending removal proceedings. He’s currently in ICE custody at the San Antonio Field Office.
“In the Philadelphia area, ICE arrested several at large criminal aliens in which the agency had issued detainers but the City of Philadelphia failed to honor them and released the individuals from custody — a situation that puts the public at unnecessary risk,” said Philadelphia Acting Field Director for deportations, Jennifer Ritchey. “ICE will continue to conduct targeted enforcement operations, whether local jurisdictions intend to cooperate with ICE or not.”
