ICE arrests 498 in 'sanctuary city' raids; 33 in Portland

Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested almost 500 people nationwide, including 33 in Portland, during a four-day operation focused on sanctuary cities.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said 50 people were arrested in MA on federal immigration violations as part of an operation in several cities and states.

Operation Safe City focused on jurisdictions where ICE agents are denied access to jails and prisons to interview immigrants.

As a result, ICE dedicated more resources to "these communities" for the arrests, he wrote. ICE said their officers did not target anyone protected under DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

51% voters say Donald Trump isn't fit to serve as President
The September 19 Virginia poll found Dem tops 50 percent, up 10 points in governor's race; Trump has big disapproval rating. White voters are evenly divided, African Americans say by an awesome 94-4 percent that he is not fit.

County officials have said multiple times the county is not a sanctuary jurisdiction because the county cooperates with ICE to inform the agency about people convicted of crimes released from the county's jail system.

In Philadelphia, 107 illegal immigrants were arrested, while 101 were arrested in Los Angeles and 45 people were arrested in NY.

The arrested included "a Salvadoran man apprehended in San Francisco who entered the country illegally and has previous convictions for sex with a minor under the age of 16".

According to ICE, 317 out of the 498 people taken into custody as part of the operation had a conviction of some kind.

Supreme Court cancels travel ban hearing as new restrictions announced
For example, while Iran remains on the list of countries with travel restrictions, student and exchange visas are an exception. The matter will be ultimately decided when the Supreme Court hears arguments on the merits of the executive order in October.

One of President Trump's first moves in office was to defund "sanctuary cities" such as Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.

"We are deeply troubled by this politically-motivated and cruel form of immigration enforcement".

But local authorities in liberal areas across the country refused to allow them access and introduced restrictions preventing police fully cooperating with ICE agents.

He said ICE wants cooperative, respectful relationships with law-enforcement partners "to help prevent risky criminal aliens from being released back onto the streets" and "non-cooperation policies severely undermine that effort".

Korea nuclear test site
Since Kim came to power after the death of his father Kim Jong Il in 2011, he has ramped up nuclear and missile weapon tests. Later, the China Earthquake Administration revised its estimation, saying the quake was not a nuclear detonation.

A spokesperson for ICE said anybody in violation of any immigration law could be arrested. The individuals who are not being federally prosecuted will be processed for removal from the U.S. Individuals who have outstanding orders of removal, or who returned to the U.S. illegally after being deported, are subject to immediate removal from the country. But the Orange County Sheriff's Department has a close relationship with ICE, including a contract that allows deputies to act as immigration agents to interrogate inmates about their legal status. He was found to be in possession of a loaded handgun, and is facing charges including assault with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed firearm.
