Before he took office, President Donald Trump promised that he would crack down on illegal immigration like no other president had before. Now, he is following through with this promise in a huge way.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) officials just announced that they arrested 60 individuals throughout New Jersey during a 5-day public safety operation ending April 20. The operation targeted illegal aliens present in the U.S. that had been convicted of serious criminal activity, to include sexual assault, child abuse, domestic violence, and Driving Under the Influence (DUI).

Of the illegal aliens who were arrested, 80 percent were convicted criminals, more than 20 had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed from the United States and returned illegally. Many of the arrested illegal immigrants had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as aggravated assault, child abuse, child sex crimes, and assault, or had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors.

“The success of this operation is a direct result of the full commitment of the dedicated men and women of ICE.” said John Tsoukaris, field office director for ERO Newark. “We will continue to devote the full efforts of our agency to protecting citizens and enforcing federal immigration law despite challenges being pursued by politically motivated individuals.”

The arrested illegal aliens came from the nations Brazil, China, Colombia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Peru, and Ukraine. The arrests were made throughout New Jersey, specifically in the counties of Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset and Union.

We’re glad to see that Trump is still making cracking down on illegal immigration a top priority as he continues his quest to make this country great again.
