ICE agents have been putting all their efforts to investigate the D.C. metropolitan area and it has paid off. Just around the corner from the White House, they discovered a hub of illegal immigrants some of which are associated with the deadly gang, MS-13. In addition, 80% of the illegals found there have a criminal record.
There have been many reports in the liberal media that the immigrants that are being targeted by ICE are respectable members of society and have had only non-violent brushes with the law. Do not be fooled by that dribble, ICE agents take their jobs seriously and realize the consequences of their actions.
Deportations of illegal immigrants with criminal records are not new. In fact, Obama had the highest rate of deportations while he was president, perhaps one of the only good things he did in office. It is important to rid our country of these outlaws.
Freedom Daily reports:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested 82 illegal immigrants in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area as part of in a five-day sting that concluded March 30, according to a press release Wednesday.
The standard enforcement operation targeted criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants, and immigration fugitives. Virginia topped Maryland and the District of Columbia with the highest number of arrests at 79. D.C. followed with two arrests, while only one Maryland resident was taken into custody.
About 80 percent of the arrestees have been convicted of criminal offenses in addition to illegally residing in the country, including crimes like armed robbery, larceny and drug distribution. The other 14 people were seized for ties to the MS-13 gang, outstanding deportation orders, overstaying visas, being wanted by a foreign law enforcement organization, being a verified human rights violator.
