Before he took office, Donald Trump promised that he would crack down on illegal immigration like no president had before. This week, he showed that he is following through with this promise in a big way.
News Channel 6 reported that 75 illegal aliens were arrested in North Texas and Oklahoma in a 3-day Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operation. The Department of Homeland Security said the operation aimed to target criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants, and immigration fugitives, and that it occurred from April 1-3.
50 of the arrests were made in Texas in these cities: Abilene (5), Amarillo (1), Arlington (2), Canadian (1), Carrollton (1), Dallas (11), Denton (1), Fort Worth (1), Frisco (1), Garland (2), Lewisville (1), Lubbock (10), Muleshoe (1), Plainview (2), San Angelo (2), Slaton (1) and Tyler (7).
The other 25 arrests came in Oklahoma, with 18 being detained in Oklahoma City and the other 10 being detained in Tulsa. ICE confirmed that all 75 of the illegal aliens that were arrested had prior criminal convictions.
“We specifically targeted criminal aliens during this operation and we improved overall public safety by removing 52 convicted criminal aliens from our streets throughout North Texas and Oklahoma. This was a focused three-day operation, but our routine operations occur daily,” said Simona L. Flores, field office director for ERO Dallas.
Liberals are of course furious about this, but we applaud Trump for taking action to DEPORT illegal aliens with criminal records! SHARE this story if you support this!
