The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested 118 illegal aliens in the New York City area during a five-day period as part of its crackdown on illegal immigration.

Of those 118 individuals arrested, more than 107 people (or 90% of the group) were convicted criminals or had criminal charges pending, ICE announced in a statement.

“Several had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as child sex crimes, weapons charges, and assault, or had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors,” ICE said.

Many Had Been Deported But Returned Illegally

More than half the group arrested (55 people) refused to leave the United States even after being ordered to, or had been deported but returned illegally. Why? Because we have no wall to stop them.

Thomas R. Decker, the field office director for ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations in New York, says the agency remains committed to enforcing our national sovereignty and federal immigration laws despite the leftist resistance calling for the abolition of ICE.

“In spite of the significant obstacles that ICE faces due to the dangerous policies created by local jurisdictions ― which hinders the cooperation between ICE and local law enforcement ― ICE will continue to devote the full efforts of our agency to protecting citizens and enforcing federal immigration law despite challenges being pursued by politically motivated individuals.”

Former ICE Agent: Leftists Don’t Realize What We Do

Liberals demanding that ICE be abolished have no idea what ICE actually does. Jerry Robinette is a former special agent in charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s homeland security investigations in San Antonio.

In July 2018, Robinette told Fox & Friends that the left is deliberately promoting a false narrative to demonize ICE, because if the public really knew what ICE does, they would not want it abolished.

“It’s irresponsible, considering that these agents risk their lives. We have agents that have lost their lives in the performance of their duties. We have agents that put their jobs in front of their families.

[The media] come to the border for a few hours. They have a field trip, they spend a few hours at the border and pretend they know what happens at the border. They have no clue. And honestly, I think they do have a clue but it’s not to their benefit to acknowledge the work that’s being done.”


Here’s some of what ICE and Border Patrol (both arms of the Department of Homeland Security) do.

Every day they protect our communities by preventing violent criminals like MS-13 & 18th Street gang members, child molesters, and smugglers from entering the United States and infiltrating your neighborhood.

ICE cracks down on child molesters and pedophiles on the Internet.

ICE rescues illegal aliens who get hurt while trying to break U.S. immigration laws.

ICE and DHS stop the flow of dangerous illegal drugs from pouring into the United States.
