#ICE doubles-down on #sanctuarycities…arrests hundreds

Federal immigration officials in the Bay Area arrested 27 people this week, most with past criminal convictions, as part of a national sweep targeting cities that prohibit cooperation between local law enforcement and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency said Thursday.

The arrests in San Francisco, San Jose, Sunnyvale and Morgan Hill — and more than 100 in Los Angeles — were part of a four-day sweep that began Sunday. Overall, ICE officials acting in eight states and Washington, D.C., arrested 498 people from 42 countries who were in the United States illegally.

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

The arrests come as California Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to sign SB54, which would prevent police from arresting people for immigration violations without a warrant, among other prohibitions.

  1. Actually Jerry and his Soviet Legislature aRe making it eaSy to get the illegal aliens. Maybe Jerry is doing this on purpose. The cities are magents for the criminals, thus concentrating them in one area instead of being disbursted over a larger one.. Nice Jerry, who would have thought that you made it easier for ICE to find your voter base. Thank You ICE and President Trump. MAGA !!!
