Last month, the attorney general Jeff Sessions announced a “zero tolerance” policy that any adult who enters the country illegally is criminally prosecuted. U.S. protocol prohibits detaining children with their parents because the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are.”
Luckily, the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” gives results.
Over the past month, ICE agents arrested at least 16 people in western and central Montana, with nine charged with being in the country illegally. Ten arrests came at a mushroom harvesting camp in Mineral County, while other arrests came at various locations around the state, The Helena Independent Record reported.
The Missoulian reported that several of those arrested had previously been deported.
Raids by ICE have been stepped up all across the country.
ABC7 previously reported that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the “targeted enforcement operation” resulted in arrests of about 150 who had criminal histories. Of the other 10, five had been ordered deported or had been deported in the past.”
ICE has said that these raids are apart of their normal operations and aren’t a byproduct of any of President Trump’s executive orders.
Arresting 160 illegal immigrants isn’t even making a dent in the problem in Southern California. The Los Angeles Times that in Los Angeles County alone there are 1,000,000+ illegal immigrants.
An ICE official confirmed Atlanta had conducted a similar surge this week, and roughly 200 arrests were made in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina in a similar routine enforcement action. Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro said in a statement that he had confirmed with ICE’s San Antonio field office that similar actions were conducted across Texas, calling the action “Operation Cross Check.” He said he would be following up to make sure the actions were targeting the worst offenders.”
Good! Legal-stay…illegal- deport. Our tax dollars should not be used for illegal immigrants legal fees. It’s always bothered me how people can just ignore that immigrants are breaking the law coming here.
But, we finally have a President that will allow ICE to do their job. It is really nice to see that our immigration laws are being enforced.
And this is one of the major reasons why America elected Trump.
