If you’re in the US illegally — maybe you should look at heading back home.
Over the last week, 600 illegal immigrants were apprehended.
Hundreds of illegal immigrants across 11 states were arrested last week as part of targeted operations, federal immigration officials revealed on Sunday.
A series of raids by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers saw around 600 people apprehended.
The agency said the operations were ‘routine’.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday morning to proclaim his commitment to a crackdown on crime.
He tweeted: ‘The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!’…
…David Marin, head of ICE’s removal operations in Los Angeles, told reporters that approximately 160 people had been arrested in the city.
Some 75 percent of them had prior felony convictions, he said, adding that some people had been apprehended solely because they were undocumented.
By Friday night, 37 undocumented immigrants had already been expelled to Mexico.
An additional 40 were arrested in New York City, which hosts around 1.15million undocumented immigrants.
A further 200 were arrested across Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri and Wisconsin and another 200 across North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.

ICE, ICE, baby!
(I couldn’t resist.)
Of course, activists and Progressives are going to be outraged, because they believe ‘no one is illegal’.
The real issue is that the way that immigration law is handled in the United States.
It treats some immigrants with kid-gloves and with others with a sledgehammer.
Just try ‘overstaying a Visa’ if you’re, say, a white Canadian relocating for work or school.
