Operations by federal officers in two states led to the arrest of nearly 50 criminal illegal immigrants. The efforts took place in Kentucky and Michigan.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers carried out a four-day targeted operation in western Michigan to round up criminal illegal aliens. During the operation, officers took 27 foreign nationals into custody–80 percent of those arrested had criminal histories, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas from ICE officials.
One of those arrested included a 23-year-old Mexican national with a prior conviction for assault on a law enforcement officer and failure to stop at the scene of an accident, officials stated. Another arrested illegal immigrant cited is a 31-year-old Mexican man. His criminal history includes a history of assault and battery, domestic violence, and indecent exposure.
“Operations like this one demonstrate ICE’s continued focus on the arrest of dangerous criminal aliens, as well as those who enter the United States illegally,” Detroit Field Office Director Rebecca Adducci, said in a written statement. “I applaud the dedicated men and women of ICE who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe.”[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2017/12/11/ice-operations-collar-nearly-50-criminal-illegal-immigrants-two-states/” target=”_blank”]
