ICE Arrests 6 In Baltimore Area As Part Of Nationwide Raids

ICE said during the "Safe City" operation it prioritized "criminal convictions, pending criminal charges, known gang members and affiliates, immigration fugitives and those who re-entered the US after deportation".

MA had among the highest number of arrests nationwide, with officials making 101 arrests across Los Angeles; 107 in Philadelphia; 63 in Denver; 45 in NY; 33 in Portland, Oregon; 30 in the Chicago area; 28 in Baltimore; 27 in Orange County, California and 14 in Washington, D.C. OR is one of those jurisdictions.

A federal operation this week to arrest hundreds of people who were in the United States illegally specifically targeted sanctuary cities around the country.

Active DACA participants were not targeted for arrest, according to ICE.

ICE officials said that the sweep, Operation Safe City, which concluded Wednesday, focused on "sanctuary jurisdictions" where the agency is denied access to jails to interview suspects and where its requests to take those arrested into custody are not honored. ICE reports that agents have made 43 percent more arrests since Trump moved into the White House than they did in the same period previous year.

Owensboro Police and Daviess County Sheriff's Department officials said they were unaware of any ICE activity in the city until their agencies were contacted by the media. Authorities said they prioritized immigrants with criminal records, but many of their crimes were non-violent and a quarter of them were for driving under the influence.

"Further, Operation "Safe City" proves that our welcoming policies - for immigrants and non-immigrants alike - do not stop ICE from enforcing federal immigration law, as ICE has suggested in the past", Kenney said.

'Dieselgate' scandal will cost Volkswagen billions more
In addition to criminal probes in Germany, the company still faces hundreds of investor lawsuits as well as consumer complaints. A report Friday from Volkswagen AG referred to the loss as "third quarter negative items" impacting the company's bottom line.

A senior official briefing reporters on the numbers Thursday said one gang member they tried to arrest in the latest actions attempted to run over the officers with a vehicle, and then, when he was taken into custody, he was found to have a loaded firearm.

The latest figures from ICE indicate 26 people were arrested in Washington state, including in Vancouver, Seattle, Federal Way, and Everett.

This raids are part of an effort by Trump to crack down on illegal immigration, and on sanctuary cities in particular, that begun his first week in office when he signed an executive order kicking off plans to build a wall along the U.S. Mexican border.

This week's ICE operation resulted in almost 500 arrests across the country, according to The Los Angeles Times.

The most recent statistics from ICE show that arrests of unauthorized immigrants have climbed 37 percent nationally from January to June -compared with the same period in 2016.

The release says a citizen of the Dominican Republic who entered the country illegally and had been convicted on firearms charges was among those arrested in Philadelphia. NY authorities released him to rather than turn him over to ICE. All but a few had prior criminal convictions and four had been previously deported, Schwab said.
