WASHINGTON (PM) — The immigration crackdown plan touted by President Donald Trump that targeted some 2,000 people ended in 35 arrests.
Trump announced the operation as a superior show of force in an effort to “deport millions” of undocumented aliens in the country as the abundance of Central American families crossing the southern border has skyrocketed. It was discontinued once and then rescheduled; Trump published the day it would begin after media reports.
The seizures took place in 10 principal cities around America.
Of those caught, 18 were members of families and 17 were ancillary apprehensions of people in the country illegally confronted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.
The acting head of ICE, Matt Albence, maintains the operation is continuous.
Another operation targeting undocumented aliens with felonious records made 899 arrests.
