Under the former Obama administration, our immigration laws were not enforced as strictly as they should have been which allowed millions of illegals to flood into our country.
That action became a bone of contention for conservatives as we witnessed our country and its culture being stripped away under the guise of multi-culturalism and diversity. After eight long years of this occurring the American people had enough and elected Donald Trump to bring back law and order to the country.
Since Trump’s inauguration, he has been busy reinforcing our immigration laws and allowing ICE agents to do their jobs by conducting raids across the country.
While many government officials in sanctuary cities across the country have been doing their best to stand in the way of Trump’s mass immigration raids, it hasn’t stopped law enforcement from doing their jobs, and it is paying off in a BIG way with what they just uncovered in their latest overnight raid.
The state of California led by far-left liberal Governor Jerry Brown has been doing everything in their power to resist President Trump and his plans to deport millions of illegal immigrants.
Governor Jerry Brown and other government officials in the liberal run state have been snubbing their nose at immigration laws by harboring illegal immigrants and even going as far as to warn illegals of upcoming raids in their area. However, while liberal leaders may have gotten away with this criminal act in the past, it appears their luck has just run out after the latest raid.
Over the last week, ICE agents were sent to San Diego and the surrounding areas to conduct overnight raids for three days of illegal immigrants hiding in plain sight and were able to arrest 115 individuals who many of them were previously deported.
Here is more from Right Wing Tribune:
‘U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officers arrested 115 individuals for violating federal immigration laws in the San Diego and Imperial counties during a three-day targeted enforcement operation that ended Thursday.
Fifty of the immigration violators arrested were convicted criminals and seven others illegally re-entered the U.S. after removal. All but seven of the arrests took place in San Diego County. Seven others had re-entered the United States after being removed on the basis of an Immigration Judge’s final order of removal.
Depending on the alien’s criminal history, an alien who illegally reenters the United States, after having been previously removed, has committed a felony punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison.
“This week’s operation targeted public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens, individuals with final orders of removal, those who illegally re-entered the country after being removed, and individuals who have otherwise violated our nation’s immigration law,” said Greg Archambeault, field office director for ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in San Diego.
“Operations like this reflect the vital work ERO officers do every day to protect the nation, uphold public safety and protect the integrity of our immigration laws and border controls. We will continue to conduct similar operations while seeking to ultimately deport at-large criminal targets and other immigration fugitives who pose a threat to public safety.”
The arrests include:
A 43-year-old Mexican national and Center Street Locos gang member in Oceanside, California, who had previously been removed from the U.S. on four prior occasions. He has multiple criminal convictions, including grand theft, controlled substance for sale and driving under the influence.
A 55-year-old citizen of Kazakhstan who is wanted by authorities in Kazakhstan for alleged tax evasion and embezzlement. He was taken into ICE custody at his Oceanside residence Tuesday pursuant to a “Red Notice” arrest warrant issued by Interpol in September.
A 52-year-old citizen of Mexico sentenced to 30-months in federal prison in 2009 after being convicted of illegal re-entry after deportation. He has three criminal convictions for spousal abuse, including battery, inflicting injury and threatening to terrorize, and was ordered removed by an immigration judge in 1998. He had previously been removed from the U.S. to Mexico on 10 prior occasions.
Four of the individuals arrested during this operation will face federal criminal prosecution for illegal re-entry after deportation. The arrestees who are not being federally prosecuted will be processed administratively for removal from the United States.
Those who have outstanding orders of removal, or who returned to the United States illegally after being deported, are subject to immediate removal from the country. The remaining individuals are in ICE custody awaiting a hearing before an immigration judge, or pending travel arrangements for removal in the near future.’
It is great to see after years of our laws being ignored a president in office who is enforcing them again.
There is not one conservative that would argue against LEGAL immigration since many families who have come to America in search of a better life have immigrated here by using the proper legal channels. However, those who sneak in and steal government benefits are not the same thing and need to be deported back to their country as quickly as possible.
If these individuals want to come to America they can do it the proper way, and they will be welcomed with open arms, but until then they will just have to get used to being bounced back over the border till they figure that out.
