Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced Thursday that officials this week arrested nearly 500 illegal immigrants living in sanctuary cities across the country.
Called operation “Operation ‘Safe City’” lasted four days in cities all over the Country and ended Wednesday.
Illegal Aliens with criminal records and known gang members were the targets, siting that recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program were not.
In Philadelphia, 107 illegal immigrants were arrested, 101 were arrested in Los Angeles and 45 people were arrested in New York.
18 of the 498 people arrested were gang members or have gang affiliations.
A Mexican illegal Alien in Los Angeles who was arrested is a member of the Colonia Chiques gang, a group dubbed one of the “largest and deadliest gangs” in southern California’s Ventura County by the FBI.
The illegal who was found with a handgun, allegedly rammed a number of law enforcement vehicles and tried to flee.
Little by little illegal Aliens will go.
