ICE just busted over 100 illegals in a sweep through New Jersey.
The raid lasted 5-days and included U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers.
During the raid, among the captured by ICE was an illegal Iraqi.
Once again, ICE is empowered to do their job under President Trump after being crippled under President Obama for 8 years.
Officers targeted criminal aliens throughout the state during an operation from June 5 to 9. Officials reported 93 of the illegal aliens arrested had criminal convictions and 87 percent of those arrested had felony convictions, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas from ICE officials.
“The continued results of our Fugitive Operations officers and their law enforcement partners underscore ICE’s ongoing and steady commitment to public safety,” Newark ERO Field Director John Tsoukaris said in a written statement. “As part of this operation, we continue focus on the arrest of individuals who are criminal and are a threat to public safety and national security. Because of the tireless efforts of these professional officers, there are 113 fewer criminals in our communities,” he added.
The criminal aliens nabbed ranged in ages between 18-years-old and 74-years-old. The crimes committed by these individuals included convictions for sexual offenses and offenses against children, including sexual assault on a minor, sexual exploitation of a minor, sex offense against a child/fondling, and child abuse. Other crimes against the person included aggravated assault, threats to kill, domestic violence and battery.
Some of the more egregious criminal aliens included:
- An Iraqi citizen convicted of possession of narcotics
- A Honduran citizen wanted by Honduras for the offense of double homicide
- A Latvian citizen convicted of heroin sale
- An El Salvador citizen convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor
- An Ecuadorian citizen convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor
- A Jordanian citizen convicted of synthetic narcotic possession

Other convictions included: possession of, or distribution of narcotics, trespassing, damage to property, driving under the influence, possession of a weapon, and illegal reentry, officials reported.
