ICE Raids Southern California, Arrests 161 With Criminal Histories

ICE Raids Southern California Arrests 161 With Criminal Histories

President Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to deport criminal illegals who were living in America and preying on our population — and it appears that he is following through on that pledge.

Last week, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents conducted a series of raids around the country aimed at rounding up criminal illegal aliens, Fox News reported.

Several of the raids were in California, where 161 people were arrested over five days. What’s shocking is that 75 percent of those arrested had criminal records apart from their immigration status.

Trump said that there were a lot of criminal illegals in this country, and he was right. The ICE raids nabbed 680 people nationwide, a vast majority of them criminals, and there are undoubtedly thousands more out there who still need to be arrested.

While liberals have screamed about how this is the beginning of unjustified deportations under Trump, they have failed to realize that almost all those arrested had previously been charged with very serious crimes.

ICE officials have pointed out that these sorts of raids were conducted under the Obama administration, and this raid was no different from all of those — except that it happened under Trump.

NPR noted that Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly released a statement on the raids, saying they only targeted criminals and those who had been ordered to leave the country but had not left.

“Of those arrested, approximately 75 percent were criminal aliens, convicted of crimes including, but not limited to, homicide, aggravated sexual abuse, sexual assault of a minor, lewd and lascivious acts with a child, indecent liberties with a minor, drug trafficking, battery, assault, DUI and weapons charges,” Kelly’s statement explained.

That’s a far cry from the innocent women and children liberals keep insisting will be deported under Trump.

Democrats, as usual, are demanding answers over this raid. CNN reported that ICE has stated that planning for this raid actually began under the Obama administration, but that hasn’t stopped Democrats from demanding to know if this raid means more will come.

While Trump may not have been responsible for this particular raid, he has appointed people like Kelly who will make deporting criminal aliens a priority and will put the safety of Americans above the fake tears of liberal critics.
