An ICE immigration raid in California

An ICE immigration raid in California

Since Donald Trump assumed control of the federal government's executive branch, millions of Americans have become fearful that he will fulfill his pledge - repeated many times during last year's campaign - to conduct mass deportations of undocumented immigrants.

More than 41,000 immigrants suspected of living illegally in the United States have been arrested in the 100 days since President Trump signed an executive order expanding the mandate of federal immigration authorities, reflecting a 38% increase compared to the same period previous year.

"To arrest people at-large rather than in the county jail, it takes longer, it takes more resources, it's less efficient", Homan said.

It is clear that any rhetoric purporting a focus on public safety and national security is empty. The measure is facing resistance from law enforcement officials from across the sta...

Immigration enforcement operations have generated headlines nationwide since Trump signed an executive order on January 25.

RSS man killed by 'CPI(M) workers' in Kerala, BJP seeks AFSPA
Leaders including O Rajagopal met the Governor to request him to impose Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) in Kannur. Twenty two CPI (M) members were accused in the case, and 8 workers were arrested in 2016 for the murder of Ramachandran.

The native of Mexico said in an interview with reporters after his arrest that he had expected ICE to come one day. Almost 11,000 had no criminal convictions - more than double the number of immigrants without criminal convictions arrested during the period a year ago. "As the data demonstrates, ICE continues to execute our mission professionally and in accordance with the law, and our communities will be much safer for it".

The largest jump in arrests is among immigrants with no criminal record, report USA Today and the Washington Post. While most unlawful immigrants come to the US seeking a better life for themselves and their families, there are too many others who commit crimes against Americans, including murder. ICE deportation officers arrested about 30,000 people in roughly the same period in 2016.

"These arrests rarely seem to be in the interest of public safety, but rather are tearing apart families, hurting small businesses, and heightening fears in communities that have previously thrived due to their immigrant populations", she said. "Those who do enter the country illegally, they do violate the law, that is a criminal act". Authorities denied him entry into the United States because he did not have the necessary immigration documents, ICE said. However, the agency did not specify whether traffic convictions were included under the term "convicted criminals".

"This administration has sought to create a lot of fear and anxiety in immigrant communities to the point where they've stoked fears that taking your child to the doctor or school could result in deportation", Healey said in an interview.
