ICE Agents Blaming Sanctuary Cities For Enabling Criminals

Federal ICE agents are slamming Bay State sanctuary cities for not cooperating in deportations and allowing dangerous criminals to strike again — including some just swept up in a major fentanyl bust in Lawrence.
“Not cooperating with federal immigration enforcement only poses a greater public safety risk,” said Todd Lyons, acting field office director for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“This path,” he told the Herald last night, “puts a community on a faster track of attracting criminal aliens who know they can victimize residents as well as the immigrant community with impunity.”
ICE said about a half-dozen of those arrested in a federal drug, firearm and illegal immigration sweep in Lawrence on Thursday are now being deported.
They include, according to ICE:
• A 57-year-old convicted Dominican drug dealer “local authorities” failed to hold on a detainer. He’s now locked up and being deported.
• A 44-year-old Ecuadorian cocaine dealer “local authorities” failed to keep locked up who is also now being kicked out.
Both were among the 50 arrested in the Lawrence drug sweep where authorities said they seized enough fentanyl to “kill half the state.” Fentanyl is a deadly synthetic opioid.
