ICE, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, have arrested and detained nearly 700 people in their confirmed 5 day campaign across the country. Across Facebook and other social media platforms, people have been sharing ICE checkpoints that have been said to detain undocumented immigrants. It has been said that most of these are hoaxes but the fear is all too real. Some of these ICE arrests have been described as raids where the agents would burst into homes, meanwhile other arrests have been public and scaring communities. “Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly once again emphasized that the operations were “routine.””A large amount of the people arrested were undocumented immigrants without criminal records. The Obama administration had focused, more so, on the undocumented immigrants with criminal records, and so this seems a direct result of the Trump administration rather than “business as usual”. Your personal opinion on deportations may depend on your political leanings, however the ICE campaigns do cost taxpayer dollars. To actually deport all illegal immigrants would not only be virtually impossible but also cost millions of dollars. Follow the article below to read more information about the arrests.
