ICE ARRESTS 52 ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS DURING RAIDS IN TEXAS

ICE launched a raid in Texas that sent several dozen illegal immigrants to the slammer

Federal officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested 52 criminal aliens or immigration violations throughout South Texas during a four-day enforcement action, which ended in late June 2019.

During this enforcement surge, ICE deportation officers made arrests in the following Texas cities: Rio Grande Valley (9), San Antonio (7), Laredo (20), and Austin/Waco (16). Of those arrested, 46 were men; six were women.

Illegal immigrants arrested during this operation are from the following three countries: Mexico (47), Honduras (4) and Cuba (1).

More than 67% of the illegal immigrants arrested by ICE deportation officers during this enforcement surge had prior criminal histories that included convictions and or pending charges for the following crimes: assault, battery, domestic violence, traffic offenses, driving under the influence, drug possession, drug trafficking, larceny, illegal re-entry after deportation, illegal entry, resisting officers, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

18 of those arrested were immigration fugitives with a final order of removal; 21 others illegally re-entered the United States after having been previously deported, which is a felony.
