ICE nabs illigals across the United States

ICE agents and officers have apprehended 2,179 criminal aliens, illegal alien gang members, fugitive aliens and other immigration violators as part of a nationwide interior immigration enforcement operation.

What took so long? The federal authorities should have been doing this for a long time.

The nationwide blitz called "Operation Return to Sender," has been conducted by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers nationwide since May 26TH.

Officials are currently targeting child molesters, gang members, violent criminals and others, who have returned to the country after being deported by a judge, the Associated Press reported. The operation has caught more than 140 immigrants with convictions for sexual offenses against children; 367 known gang members, including street soldiers in the deadly Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13; and about 640 people who had already been deported once, immigration officials said. The numbers include more than 720 arrests in California alone.
