Nearly 700 Undocumented Immigrants Arrested in Recent Raids
By Steve Neavling
President Trump’s pledge to remove 2 million to 3 million undocumented immigrants from the U.S. began last week when federal officers arrested more than 680 people living in the country illegally, Reuters reports.
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids were conducted in at least a dozen states, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said.
Kelly said 75% of the immigrants arrested had criminal records.
Trump praised his administration for having “really done a great job” arresting immigrants.
“We’re actually taking people that are criminals, very, very, hardened criminals in some cases with a tremendous track record of abuse and problems,” Trump said.
Immigrants were targeted in Los Angeles, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, San Antonio and the Midwest.
