It’s finally happening. After months of promises, President Trump kicked off his first major immigration raids this week.
Under the guidance of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, Trump’s administration managed to capture hundreds of illegal aliens.
The raids took place in New York, Illinois, California, Georgia, and North & South Dakota. The illegal aliens were arrested in their homes and even at their workplaces. Additional raids also took place in Florida, Kansas, Texas, and Virginia.
Freedom Daily reports:
Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.) told the Washington Post that he talked to an official at ICE’s San Antonio office, and that they confirmed they had “launched a targeted operation in South and Central Texas as part of Operation Cross Check.”
According to Atlanta immigration attorney Hiba Ghalib, illegal criminals are sh*tting their pants. She told the Post, “People are panicking. People are really, really scared.” Which of course they wouldn’t be if they hadn’t broken United States federal law, and hadn’t committed crimes while in the U.S. illegally. No tears from us.
There were reports of ICE using checkpoints in Texas and North Carolina, but the agency denies the use of checkpoints, calling the rumors “dangerous and irresponsible.” Apparently more fake news from the left to stir up anti-Trump hate.

ABC reporting on the raids:
According to ICE officials, 200 criminal illegals have been arrested in Georgia and North & South Carolina alone.
Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Gillian Christensen told the Post that the illegals came from a “dozen Latin American countries.”
“We’re talking about people who are threats to public safety or a threat to the integrity of the immigration system,” she added.
Of course, left-wing media pundits like Keith Olbermann attacked Trump for cleaning up our streats.
Too bad for them, Trump cares about America and keeping it safe.
