Immigration officials arrest more than 3,100

By The Associated Press

— Federal officials say they arrested more than 3,100 immigrants convicted of serious crimes and fugitives in a six-day nationwide sweep.

Officials at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement say the sweep included every state and involved more than 1,900 of the agency’s officers and agents.

More than 1,000 of the people arrested had multiple criminal convictions. The most severe cases included murder, manslaughter, drug trafficking and sexual crimes against minors.

The totals included an estimated 50 gang members and 149 convicted sex offenders.

The sweep comes nearly a year after ICE pledged to focus on deporting illegal immigrants with serious criminal histories and those who posed national security threats, while going easier on many who stay out of trouble.

It's too much trouble for the ADG to copy and paste the news release.

One can still vote as long as one can prove they are a legal resident. Ever hear of operation wet back? It worked before.

We need our own "Oeration Wetback" right here in Arkansas, might want to start with the bricklayers who continue to pay their illegal wetbacks in cash, I just do not see how they continue this and get by with it.
