Immigration & Customs Enforcement continue to do something that gives liberals night sweats, and that’s enforcing immigration & customs laws:
“Since Sunday, ICE deportation officers have arrested more than 150 individuals who are in violation of federal U.S. immigration laws, working on leads developed by the local field office in conjunction with the National Criminal Analysis and Targeting Center (NCATC),” ICE said in a statement released Tuesday.
“About half of the individuals arrested also have criminal convictions in addition to their immigration violations, including convictions for assault/battery, crimes against children, weapons charges and DUI,” ICE said.
Right on cue, Nancy Pelosi, in vigorous defense of what she views as a future Democrat voting base, called the enforcement of federal law a “cowardly attack” meant to “terrorize” some “law-abiding” illegals (?) who are “patriotic” (??):
“The Trump Administration’s raids were a shocking abuse of law enforcement power. Yet again, the White House has reached into our communities to indiscriminately detain scores of hard-working, law-abiding immigrants.
“Fully half of those swept up in the ICE raids have no criminal record. This raid was intended solely to terrorize innocent immigrant families and instill fear in the hearts of our communities – not to keep Americans safe. Parents will now be torn from their children, and spouses ripped away from their loved ones.
“The Administration continues to brazenly target the cities that refuse to bow to its blatantly bigoted anti-immigrant and mass deportation agenda. The people of the San Francisco Bay Area will continue to oppose these cowardly attacks, and we will remain open to the patriotic immigrants who are the constant reinvigoration of America.”
Tell that to Kate Steinle’s family, Stretch.
And I love it when Dems play this card: “Half of those swept up in the ICE raids have no criminal record.” Well, except for being in the country illegally. Meanwhile, Dems like Pelosi are accusing law-abiding gun-owning members of the NRA of being complicit in murder. Good luck with that approach in the elections, libs.
