ICE arrest

The Trump administration is encouraged by reports that border crossings of undocumented immigrants dropped sharply over the past few months.

Apprehensions of illegals at the border dropped to 16,600, down 30 percent since February and 64 percent from a year ago under the previous administration.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is taking aim at illegals from Mexico, Central and South America and Indian technology workers in Silicon Valley.

Judges and police have been ordered to crack down on all illegal immigrants. Immigrants without papers are being rounded up wherever officials can find them, including in courthouses and on college campuses.

Even undocumented immigrants who have been in this country for decades and own homes and businesses are being rounded up.

More facilities are under construction to house undocumented immigrants who will be deported after they've had their day in court.

Hiring standards for border agents, including physical fitness requirements, have been lowered to increase their ranks, and more judges are being brought in to various cities and counties to handle the growing backlog of cases.

There are an estimated 11 million people living in the United States illegally. President Donald Trump came into office promising to decrease that number.

"For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era," Attorney General Jeff Sessions said during a meeting with border agents on Tuesday.

  • CookieMobster

    Thanks for the advice!! I'm a chocololic.

  • Taylordanes

    What about the Canadians and Asians with expired Visas? Why is it only about Brown people?

  • Taylordanes

    yep its only the brown immigrants who are not welcome

  • Taylordanes

    and it's still WHITE MEN who are terrorists killing up folks...

  • Luvn_it

    And of course he's only trying to deport poc I bet there's no Europeans on that list of illegal immigrants. Even though there's plenty of them.

  • OP2

    Umm. They too are being deported, especially the ones breaking the laws via trafficking of any sorts. If they are undocumented and on welfare that will draw attention. Associating with gangs or getting having warrants also draws attention.

    Most are here legally via work or school Visas. While here, they are smart enough to work, study and stay out of trouble with a focus on gaining a college in a STEM Degree of some sort where they are supporting themselves rather than signing up for welfare and being another taxpayer's burden.

  • EMILY POST

    Jeff Sessions not playing.

  • Elevated Soul

    Get them!

    Blacks with self preservation applaud these actions.

  • Junkanoo

    This is why the media is apart of the problem shouldn't they calling this issue out the blatant racism happening in plain site

  • Taylordanes

    There are plenty of Asians on Welfare and food stamps....... Let's not act like they are not using up our resources as well....I have a chinese guy come in my office all the time saying how his asian neighbors own a salon and are still taking advantage of the system... If their visas are expired they need to leave as well .... ... and the most violent crimes are commited by white men... the real terrorist so this is all a distraction

  • T Kenny

    this is a messed up thing to say, but many of these people who touch down here illegally are so anti black, i dont really care what happens to them. yet they worship whites, who are mainly the ones who voted for the man who promised to remove them. bye

  • Tea??

    I don't care either. And they come up out here half the time with stolen social security numbers and fake papers. They'll hate us with a passion until it's time to compare their struggles to ours in this country.

  • OP2

    Recently, in the news I've seen a number of illegal Asians being rounded up & arrested for deportation. -but, if you're only following a channel or 2 you'll never get the whole picture or know what others are aware of.

  • Taylordanes

    I don't follow channel 2.... I do watch BBC news and I actually watch a Japanese station often....but I SPOKE from experience.... I definitely am AWARE and CULTURED doll

  • Wut you say

    This is good ?

  • Monique B

    Round them up!!

  • OP2

    Good. Then, you should have seen the large number of illegal Asians being arrested for trafficking of all sorts including hiding massage & nail parlors. ;)

  • Libralovejustice

    How they kicking people out when they stole the land...smh

  • Taylordanes

    naw its not happening as much as other races ........ as I stated and as asians in my community have made me aware of......

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    More jobs for others

  • OP2

    Logically, it will never happen as much as other minority 'ethnicities' because the Asians groups in the US are SMALLER than Blacks and Latinos.

    -There's only one Race...the Human Race. We are all or the of the same specie which comes in various flavors (ethnicities; cultures, mores and languages). Grade school info taught in most social science classes. smh

  • Taylordanes

    The Asian population is smaller here because most black and hispanics in the Us were born here and are not illegal........
    Yeah I went to grad school sweety and since there is only one race why are people being deported like they are not human with no compassion or sympathy.. why are you supporting and defending systematic racism? It is easy to change the subject when one has no other logical explanation....

  • OP2

    Why? Because we have laws! Laws are not about feelings or political social agendas used to conjure up emotions to manipulate folks for votes.

    Um. You would never expect other countries around the world to allow others to break their laws by illegally crossing into their borders and committing other crimes (Identity theft, rape, stealing, gangbangin', selling drugs, etc.) without punishment.

    Yet, you seem to expect the US to be a weak nation of leaders with no backbones who are incapable of enforcing their own laws? lol

    I get it: Some emotional folks THINK that they prefer that ALL communities of America resemble the LIBERAL/Emotional impoverished; dysfunctional crime-infested urban cities and towns in the US and just become another nation or lawless society like Somalia or other similar nations in Latin America with no real authority or laws in place to keep crime under control. -yep, makes a lot of sense. Not!

  • Taylordanes

    Nah son not today. Laws... please like the Jim Crow ones??? I see the racial inequalities brown folks face... I am happy your so passionate.... bye Felecia

  • OP2

    J1m Crow or not. The fact is...there are laws in this country and around world. Defy them and expect to face their for-profit jails and prisons, if or when caught. -of course there are racial inequalities. That has been since slavery and probably never going away.

    Yet, some Blacks are too foolish (or distracted by foolishness) to not figure out that no jobs for them will result in more crime or criminal mentalities leading to for-profit jails and prisons. That shifts to those who fail for illegal immigrants and visa-immigrants hired as cheap labor as showing compassion and sympathy as being the biggest fools. Why? Because Blacks have moved further down the ladder to slave labor to make profits for others in those jails and prisons.

    -whose have sympathy for the Blacks that are worse-off than the illegal and Work-Visa immigrants? This is an opportunity for some Blacks to wake up & prepare for jobs that were once taken by illegal immigrants who are now deported, unless they are hell-bent on behaving their way into jails and prisons to work as slave laborers. ijs

  • Taylordanes

    keep talking to yoself............ felecia

  • Gotitbutsmh

    What a crock of BS. When will the European illegals be rounded up? Start with the Russians, with mob connections, in Little Odessa NY. What about the 50,000 or so Irish who came with student visa's and never left? Chile please.......

  • Gotitbutsmh

    If that racist basstid was serious he would be rounding up European illegals also. Miss me with your BS too.

  • Gotitbutsmh

    All of those darn Russians with mob ties in NY. Walking around like 3 the hard way running stuff.

  • Gotitbutsmh

    The lies you tell! Stop it with your ignorant BS. Illegals can only receive emergency medical and schooling. They do not qualify for welfare! Even if they are legal they still have to wait 5 years before the can collect. Take a civics class!

  • Gotitbutsmh

    More lies!

  • OP2

    Others on here can check the facts for themselves. Simply g00gle: SNAP Policy on Non-Citizen Eligibility. -it states illegal alien children under 18 as well as certain refugees will qualify for SNAP/foodstamps. Of course, the illegal adults will eat alongside the children. ;)

    I can back up my statements. Yep, took civics years ago in high school. Moved on to being well-rounded in college which include various courses sociology classes and much more. Wayyy ahead of ya! ;)

  • EMILY POST

    How do you know he isn't??

  • OP2

    Whatever. A few months ago, watched illegal Asians being arrested during a News report. A number of them were tied to human trafficking while hiding behind restaurants, nail salons and massage parlors. -the victims being used for money were freed.

    -just because you are not aware or less informed doesn't mean it's not true.

  • Gotitbutsmh

    School lunches and formula for babies is what that is in reference to. We are not talking about refugees. As I stated illegals DO NOT get food stamps. They come here and work their behinds off in those low paying jobs. You can't back up jack and are talking out the side of your neck. Stop with the misinformation!

  • Gotitbutsmh

    ICE was there because Asians were trafficking not because ICE is rounding up Asians. You seem to know absolutely 100% about nothing. Is it impossible for you to just state facts without your BS spin on it which turn out to be the lies you tell?

  • Gotitbutsmh

    Simply because you know he isn't.

  • OP2

    That much is true. However, they too are being arrest is my point.

  • OP2

    I see. You're one of those who hate the truth! I'll keep it coming. The facts are there. The children of illegal immigrants DO qualify for foodstamps.

    Therefore, the adults will be doing the shopping, preparing the food and eating those groceries too. -and we ain't talking formula. When you know those who worked in social service that can vouch for those facts...makes it even more credible. ;)

  • Gotitbutsmh

    What I see is the internet makes you feel important and this is where you feel people actually listen. Right I'm sure the parents will drink the babies formula and go to school and eat their kids lunches. I don't have the time nor crayons to keep explaining this to you. Stop with the misinformation!

  • Gotitbutsmh

    My point is there are areas in NY full of Russians, other areas of Irishmen, Chinatown's and Asian towns in anywhere USA that are not going through the actual raids where know illegals live and work. Just as ICE knows where the Mexicans live and work they also have the same information on European (whites) illegals and the round ups would also be equally quick and successful. It's not happening, and I call BS.

  • OP2

    Once again: when you bring attention to your group by committing crimes to wreak havoc on America such as the well-known gang members from Latin America, then expect them to hone in, investigate and go after you.

    Whereas, those much smaller minority groups of illegals who also used Canada & the Mexican borders to cross into the US are wise enough to lay low, blend in while attending colleges and working for those who are here legally. Others are now here illegally due to staying in spite of the expired Student or Work Visas. They too are targeted. Unlike Latinos, they tend to be individuals with little to no family here who can run to the media and cry foul. -therefore, it looks like ICE is only targeting the Hispanics.

    It's a mess, but this country has become a land of higher unemployment rate for its own citizens with urban areas in inner-cities being blighted and ridden with criminals or crime trapped in a never-ending dysfunctional maze with failing school systems on modern day gov't plantations. -where do you start in fixing the problems? Go back to taking care of our own business and people first aka Hire Americans first!!
