Before he was elected, Donald Trump promised he would crack down on illegal immigration like no president had before. Now, he is following through on this in a big way.
The sanctuary city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has been resisting Trump and his executive orders. This month, Trump declared war on them when he sent in Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents to arrest 248 illegal immigrants there.
The Washington Examiner reported that the arrests took place Monday, Feb. 27, 2017 through Friday, Mar. 10, 2017.
“ICE officers make extraordinary efforts to keep our communities safe, and this operation is just a small example of what they do every day. ERO officers took oaths to protect the homeland and to arrest individuals in violation of immigration laws,” said ERO Philadelphia Acting Field Office Director Jennifer Ritchey in a statement. “This operation resulted in multiple arrests of individuals with violent criminal arrests or convictions in the three-state region.”
“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. ICE will continue to conduct targeted enforcement operations, whether local jurisdictions intend to cooperate with ICE or not,” she added.
Of the 248 arrested illegal aliens, 120 had pending convictions and 50 had previously been deported from the U.S. SHARE this story if you think these illegal immigrants got what they deserved!
