Immigration officials have arrested 331 illegal, undocumented immigrants in a month long sweep that started on May 9th and ended this past Monday. This operation was carried out in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Kansas, and Missouri.
Among the 331 arrested were an illegal immigrant from Mexico who was arrested in Wisconsin for vandalism, domestic violence and a hit and run accident. Another man from Mexico was also arrested in Wisconsin and had convictions for domestic violence, sexual assault and theft. In Kansas, another illegal immigrant from Mexico was arrested with convictions for battery and aggravated assault. In Indiana, a Honduran man was arrested for convictions of sex offense against a child, and he also had an outstanding order for deportation.
This operation was carried out in order to track down, detain, and deport individuals who pose a threat to our country and our national security. While there are currently over 12 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States, these arrests highlight Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) doing their job to make America a safer place.
