INTERNATIONAL: Hundreds of illegal immigrants arrested in ‘routine’ U.S. enforcement surge

By Yahoo News

immigration-raideditedYAHOO NEWS – U.S. federal immigration agents arrested hundreds of undocumented immigrants in at least four states this week in what officials on Friday called routine enforcement actions.

Reports of immigration sweeps this week sparked concern among immigration advocates and families, coming on the heels of President Donald Trump’s executive order barring refugees and immigrants from seven majority-Muslim nations. That order is currently on hold.

“The fear coursing through immigrant homes and the native-born Americans who love immigrants as friends and family is palpable,” Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, said in a statement. “Reports of raids in immigrant communities are a grave concern.”

The enforcement actions took place in Atlanta, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and surrounding areas, said David Marin, director of enforcement and removal for the Los Angeles field office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Only five of 161 people arrested in Southern California would not have been enforcement priorities under the Obama administration, he said.

  3. well what i have to say is that i rather be poor in my own country than be broke in a place where i have no job and its cold and freezing. you cant report no crime. people can take advantage of you. . i like my home where i was born. and when you all get old and cant hustle no more, you all shame to come down because you all have nothing. what a price to pay just to say u in de states. stop being stupid. think. they give u six months. stay six months. thats plenty time. no country visa i know give you so long to stay in the people place. my sympathy i will save for other things.

    • Shut your A$$ ignorant . If you were given an opportunity to live in the USA to hold a well paid job , get the best schools for your kids and an amazing healthcare plan , where you don't get a Tylenol RX for every ailment I bet your ass would be in the USA . Immigrants have a retirement plan , it's not shame is being proud .
