19 arrested in SC during 3-state ICE operation

ICE said of the almost 200 people arrested during raids across Georgia and the Carolinas, about two-thirds of them had criminal charges.

They were targeted for removal in raids planned before Trump took office and Marin said they would have been enforcement priorities under the Obama administration.

During a joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Trump praised Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and said the raids were fulfilling a campaign promise. According to the statement by Homeland Security, 25% of those arrested were not "criminal aliens"- though 75% of those arrested had been convicted of crimes ranging from homicide, sexual abuse, child sexual assault, drug trafficking and weapons charges.

"In the past week, ICE has detained almost 700 undocumented immigrants, including the mother of two US citizen children, and just yesterday, a 23-year-old DREAMER with no criminal record who was taken from his father's home". ICE officers arrested more than 680 immigrants in multiple states from Monday to Friday, officials said on Monday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says it arrested 235 foreign nationals in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Kansas and Missouri during a targeted enforcement operation over the past week.

Widespread fear of deportation has sparked false rumors like this since President Donald Trump took office, and that those have escalated since Daniel Ramirez, a "DREAMer", was arrested and detained in Seattle late last week.

In a January 25 executive order, Trump broadened an Obama-era priority enforcement system for immigrants subject to removal from the United States.

Agency officials said ICE does not conduct "sweeps, checkpoint or raids that target aliens indiscriminately".

"As an American citizen, I would much rather the government go after the big fish than the little fish", said Owings. The official said ICE put together a statistic on the number of arrests before the operation fully concluded on Monday evening due to vast public interest.

Obama administration policy was to require a criminal conviction, rather than gang affiliation alone.

City Council speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said she expects more "dragnet raids" in NY and that they'll "destabilize communities and devastate families".

Elmiron says they are telling families to create plans for their children in the event they are picked up by immigration officials.

President Trump's executive order on the deportation of "criminal aliens" allows a person to be targeted for deportation over any crime.

Executive director of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition Eva Millona says that's made it hard to know for certain what to expect from local ICE agents.
