ICE Apprehends 650 Migrants In 4-Days

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced Tuesday that the agency had apprehended 650 people in a four-day operation last week.

The ICE operation, called “Operation Border Guardian/Border Resolve,” was designed to target immigrants who entered the country illegally as minors who are now over 18, and minors over 16 who are suspected of being gang members.

“All of the individuals targeted during this operation had been issued a final order of removal by a federal immigration judge, and had no appeals or motions to re-open their case pending before the nation’s immigration courts,” ICE said in a statement.

ICE also added, “One-hundred and thirty of the 650 had criminal convictions in addition to being in the country illegally, for crimes including but not limited to DUI, assault and battery, drug possession, domestic abuse and sexual assault.”

      ICE needs to remove them to as far away as possible to make sure they have a hard time coming back in. The problem is that illegals know all the easy tricks to get back in; we need the wall built now.

    650 in 4 days. I could do that in neighborhoods of certain schools in my town. HELLO. Do they only have a few officers. Start round up. There are illegals that have been in this country for years. They have managed to skirt any need for papers but their kids are in school.

    There is plenty of blame to go around and it isn’t restricted to just the last eight years. Many are quick to blame Obama for the actions of Illegal Alien criminals. The illegal alien issue has been ignored by both sides of the aisle for decades. This is a problem that could have been squelched a long time ago. The blame can be shared by the past ten Presidents and all the politicians who served in Congress since 1961. There are just as many Republicans as well as Democrats in that group. In my opinion, they were all derelict in their duty and violated their oath. Trump is trying to pick up where Eisenhower left off 57 years ago.

    Eisenhower tried to nip it in the bud with his Wetback program. With just a hand full of agents they were quite successful. They were finding and deporting illegals by the thousands every week. Just as they were getting the situation under control the Eisenhower Administration came to an end. That program started to slack off during the Kennedy Administration and continued to decrease. They could have continued to seriously keep the situation under control but chose not to. As a result, we have the situation now facing us.

    We need to secure our borders first. Give all illegals a deadline to leave willingly. Anyone caught after that date should immediately be arrested, prosecuted and given a prison term. Then transported out of the country permanently. Those who leave willingly should be given the opportunity to re-enter legally. Make the standards more realistic and easier with much less needless red tape than exists now. Allow them to have working visas so they can earn a living and contribute to rebuilding this country. Perhaps eventually become citizens.

    I have no problem with any aliens who come here legally. They work very hard to build a life here and help to make the United States into the great country it became. They never ask for anything in return other than that which they had earned. That is a big difference from those who come here illegally, burn our flag, sponge off our welfare system form gangs, terrorize and rob from our people and businesses, and demand we give them everything they want without giving anything back. That I have a problem with.

    We need to stop sending the billions of dollars in foreign aid to countries that hate us. Why pay them to hate us when I am sure they will be happy to hate us for nothing. Just to name a few countries, Mexico, Guatemala El Salvador, Honduras and Belize come to mind. The leaders of these countries are transporting people to our borders to cross over as illegals.

    The money for foreign aid we give them is supposed to help the people and the children. I doubt that any more then a few cents on every dollar (If that much.) goes to the intended recipients. Their leaders live in palaces that dwarf the White House. Google it yourself and check it out. Makes me wonder how much of our tax Dollars go into the maintenance of those palaces. How much of our tax Dollars go into maintaining the lavish life styles of those leaders?

    Put a freeze on all their financial assets and holdings in this country. Impose sanctions. Put those countries off limits to American tourists and businesses. Start to seriously gather all the illegals and deport them and make those countries reimburse us. Send them the bill for the freebies. If they don’t pay, take it out of their frozen financial assets and holdings. Impose serious fines and punishments on all States, cities, businesses and people in this country who harbor illegals. Hit them in their bank accounts where it hurts. That is the only language they will understand.

    We need to make it crystal clear that Mister Nice Guy is no longer in charge.

    Since estimates indicate that 25% of the non-citizens residing in US are registered to vote, every illegal that is ousted from US is one less illegal vote to eliminate a legitimate US citizen’s vote in our elections. And that’s exactly why the Democrats are fighting to keep any illegals from being deported!
