“ICE is coming! ICE is coming!”

Bay Area residents, you asked for it…and ICE delivered.

In a four-day sweep ICE officers arrested 232 people who violated federal immigration laws according to the East Bay Times.

Of those arrested, 180 were either convicted criminals who had failed to leave the country after ordered to do so or returned after being deported, ICE officials said.

The sweeps, which also occurred in the Bay Area grabbed up 115 people who had previous felony convictions for serious or violent offenses like child sex crimes or weapons charges. These people weren’t here to because they wanted to keep their families together.

The arrests come despite Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf publicly tipping off criminals about the impending raids.
