ICE plans to launch massive raids targeting illegal immigrants who have deportation orders, expired VISA'S, and those that are illegally present in the United States. Hundreds of people know about it. It's a major operation.
Some of the individuals arrested during this operation will face federal criminal prosecutions for illegal entry and illegal re-entry after deportation. The raids will take place throughout The United States.
Eventually, most illegal immigrants arrested will be sent back to their home county via a ICE Air Operations Charter flight.
In Fiscal year 2018, ICE removed 256,085 illegal immigrants.
Undocumented immigrants continuously attempt to exploit the loopholes of The United States immigration system. Deportation officers enforce The United States immigration laws by identifying, arresting, detaining, and removing illegal immigrants.
To ensure the national security and public safety of the United States and the faithful execution of the immigration laws illegal entry will not be tolerated, The Department of Homeland Security says.
Many undocumented workers secure jobs in The United States through fraudulent means such as presenting false documents, completing fraudulent benefit applications and stealing someone’s identity.
There have been numerous ICE raids in Charlotte, see below:

ICE places detainers on individuals who have been arrested on local criminal charges and who are suspected of being deportable, so that ICE can take custody of that person when he or she is released from local custody. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission, ICE says.
