President Trump vowed to reform immigration and return our country to the rule of law, and he’s keeping that promise.
Immigration arrests rose 32.6% during the first few weeks of Trump’s presidency.
Now, with a staff of newly empowered federal agents working to arrest illegals, that number has jumped.
ICE is targeting all criminal illegals – contrary to liberals and their “creative labeling,” by definition, anyone who is here ILLEGALLY is “breaking the law.”
And that is a CRIMINAL act.
You don’t have to be a rapist to be a criminal illegal.
However, as with the article below, liberals “spin” the story, to make it appear as though some illegals are “law abiding.”
If I sneak into Mexico and help myself to public schools, healthcare, and entitlements, am I doing something “legal?”
Would they kick me out?

Immigration arrests rose 32.6 percent in the first weeks of the Trump administration, with newly empowered federal agents intensifying their pursuit of not just undocumented immigrants with criminal records, but also thousands of illegal immigrants who have been otherwise law-abiding.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested 21,362 immigrants, mostly convicted criminals, from January through mid-March, compared to 16,104 during the same period last year, according to statistics requested by The Washington Post.
Arrests of immigrants with no criminal records more than doubled to 5,441, the clearest sign yet that President Trump has ditched his predecessor’s protective stance toward most of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.
Advocates for immigrants say the unbridled enforcement has led to a sharp drop in reports from Latinos of sexual assaults and other crimes in Houston and Los Angeles, and terrified immigrant communities across the United States. A prosecutor said the presence of immigration agents in state and local courthouses, which advocates say has increased under the Trump administration, makes it harder to prosecute crime.
“My sense is that ICE is emboldened in a way that I have never seen,” Dan Satterberg, the top prosecutor in Washington state’s King County, which includes Seattle, said Thursday. “The federal government, in really just a couple of months, has undone decades of work that we have done to build this trust.”
