Federal authorities arrest 32 foreign nationals with criminal records

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers this week arrested 32 foreign nationals who had previously been convicted of crimes that include robbery and drug possession.

The arrests took place during a four-day sweep in Virginia and the District. In addition, four immigration fugitives were arrested, federal authorities said. They said three gang members were among those picked up.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers worked with the U.S. Marshals Service and state and local officials. Those arrested come from 16 countries in Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean.

32? That's all they could find? The administration says they will prosecute and deport any ILLEGALS who commit crimes.HELLO! Can we count the ways? Illegal entry, filing false government documents, working without authorization. That's just for starters. Do they have to kill someone before this administration takes action? Oh yeah, that's right; ILLEGALS do kill an average of 9,000 Americans a years. Get real! ENFORCE THE LAW!

How typical that Maryland didn’t participate, being a mecca for foreign criminals.

This is better than no arrests at all. I am sure the H2Oback apologists are wring their hands though.

How about this: Jails and Prisons would be required to notify Immigrations and Costoms Service (ICE) three to thirty days before releasing any immigrant serving a sentence. ICE would file a detainer if not already filed and ICE or a designated 287g Agency would then pick up the immigrant prisoner and transfer him/her to ICE holding facility pending deportation.
