ICE operation nets 9 arrests in Santa Maria

"We want to know just how widespread the abuse is", said Carl Takei, an attorney with the ACLU's National Prison Project who works on immigration detention issues. They included 15 people convicted of sex crimes, including a criminal rapist, a previously deported cocaine trafficker, and two people convicted of cruelty to a child.

USA federal immigration agents have arrested almost 200 people suspected of being in the country illegally during a five-day raid in the Los Angeles area in southern California. "By taking these individuals off the streets and removing them from the country, we're making our communities safer for everyone", Los Angeles ICE Field Director David Marin said in a statement.

At least eight people arrested now face federal prosecution for re-entry after deportation, which is a felony and is punishable by up to 20 years in prison, officials said.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported Thursday that 169 of the people arrested had previous criminal convictions.

Individuals encountered in the course of priority or target arrests can also be arrested and subject to deportation, ICE has said.

ICE representative said the Santa Barbara County tally was 11, although the city breakdown listed nine in Santa Maria and 1 in Santa Barbara.

"ICE agents and officers have been given clear direction to focus on threats to public safety and national security, which has resulted in a substantial increase in the arrest of convicted criminal aliens". “Hes been a valued member of his family and community for decades and they seem to be going after people for a conviction thats as old as 1992.”.

While Kelly told NBC's "Meet the Press" earlier this year that "illegally doesn't necessarily get you targeted, it's got to be something else", ICE does not only arrest immigrants that they specifically target.

Trump's first month in office was dominated by a battle over his temporary travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries and harsh personal criticism of federal judges who blocked his immigration order.

"The same data shows that numerous non-sanctuary jurisdictions saw a higher increase in ICE arrests under Trump policies than did areas with major sanctuaries".

Immigration arrests since the beginning of the year have risen nearly 40% nationwide compared to the same period in 2016.
