FEEL GOOD STORY OF THE DAY: ICE Arrests 212 ILLEGALS, Targets 122 Businesses In LA Sweep

Federal deportation officers staged one of the biggest enforcement actions in years against businesses in Los Angeles this week, arresting 212 people and serving audit notices to 122 businesses who will have to prove they aren’t hiring illegal immigrants.
Nearly all of those arrested were convicted criminals, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
ICE said it targeted Los Angeles because it’s a sanctuary city, meaning it refuses to fully cooperate with federal authorities on deportations from within its jails.
That means agents and officers have to go out into the community, said Thomas D. Homan, the agency’s deputy director.
“Fewer jail arrests mean more arrests on the street, and that also requires more resources, which is why we are forced to send additional resources to those areas to meet operational needs and officer safety,” Mr. Homan said. “Consistent with our public safety mission, 88 percent of those arrested during this operation were convicted criminals.”

So "nearly all" were convicted criminals, huh. Sure.

Unfortunately, ICE/this administration is NOT solely after criminals, they are taking the easy route and just going for big numbers, and deporting/detaining regular people - moms and dads who have been here for decades, and who are just supporting their families honorably.

ICE is ripping families apart, and leaving children vulnerable. This is not the America we should be. But yeah, ICE is getting their numbers, whoo hoo.

Plus, this hurts our economy.

I'm all for getting rid of criminals, but that's not what ICE is about these days.
