    200 arrested in ICE raids across North Carolina

    Roughly 200 arrested in ICE raids across North Carolina, official says agency will be more visible in Raleigh-Durham region

    ICE officials said agents arrested approximately 200 people during raids across the state this week.

    Updated 30 mins ago

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WTVD) --

    On Friday morning, officials with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced that roughly 200 people were arrested in raids across North Carolina over the last few days.

    However, officials said that number does not include the nearly 30 people taken into custody at a Sanford manufacturing company on Tuesday morning because the arrests were made by a different division.

    Although the statistics are not finalized, officials said the following is true of the nearly 200 arrests:


    • 50 suspects involved had criminal convictions


    • 40 had pending criminal charges


    • 50 were previously deported but had re-entered illegally

    ICE officials said agents arrested approximately 200 people during raids across the state this week.


    Sixty other people arrested were not specifically targeted. Instead, they were arrested when they could not verify their legal status for ICE agents who were searching for other undocumented people.

    As for the seeming increase in raids, ICE Atlanta field office Director Sean Gallagher said this is the new normal. He said with Wake, Durham, and Orange county leadership ending the 287g program (which transferred undocumented detainees to ICE custody) ICE has to now actively seek out undocumented immigrants.

    (READ THE RESPONSES FROM WAKE, DURHAM AND ORANGE COUNTIES BELOW)

    Gallagher said it is his team's job to arrest criminals. He said his team will continue to actively search for undocumented immigrants with criminal records, and his agents will not turn a blind eye if undocumented family members or friends are in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    "Residents should expect a more visible ICE presence in the Raleigh-Durham area," Gallagher said. "ICE will now have no choice but to conduct more at large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests instead of arrests at the jail where enforcement is safer for everyone involved."

    The arrests this week have taken place across the Tar Heel state including Charlotte, Burlington, Durham, and parts of Wake County.

    Bryan Cox, a spokesman for the ICE, added, "ICE does not conduct any type of random or indiscriminate enforcement. The agency focuses first and foremost on criminal offenders and other public safety threats."

    On Wednesday, Cox also provided new data to the ABC11 I-Team showing 15,189 arrests of undocumented immigrants by the Atlanta Field Office, which covers Georgia and the Carolinas.

    Among those detained, 9,490 (62 percent) were convicted of criminal offenses, while 4,464 (29 percent) were first detained by local law enforcement on other pending charges.

    ICE hace más arrestos en Durham

    Orange County Sheriff's Office response:
    "Our position is and continues to be that if we receive documentation that provides the necessary legal basis to satisfy the Fourth Amendment, we will hold the individual. Absent the necessary legal basis, the individual will be released."

    Wake County Sheriff's Office response:
    "ICE Director Gallagher has a difficult job. I'm sure his under a lot of pressure with regards to immigration reform and enforcement, but the Wake County Sheriff's Office has no role in immigration enforcement. It is the responsibility of ICE and other related agencies to enforce immigration laws. I understand how sensitive this matter is to families. The Wake County Sheriff's Office enforces state and local laws, while ICE enforces federal laws.

    Let me be clear, it's makes no difference whether a person is in this country legally or illegally, if he or she breaks any law in this county, they will be arrested and prosecuted.

    Any individual released from the Wake County Detention Center has met requirements of bail set by the courts. We release individuals by order of the courts.

    The Wake County Sheriff's Office will continue to maintain the valued, professional law enforcement relationships we have with many federal agencies including the FBI, DEA, ATF, and of course, ICE.
    As Sheriff of this County, I will continue to work with all agencies, as proscribed by the duties of my office, to keep the citizens of Wake County safe." - Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker

    Durham County Sheriff's Office response:
    Sheriff Clarence Birkhead, the Durham County Sheriff stands by his decision to end the practice of honoring ICE detainers. Detainers are a request from Immigration and Customs Enforcment or ICE made of detention centers to hold suspected undocumented immigrants 48 hours beyond the time they would legally be allowed to be released after posting bond or serving a sentence.

    ICE is notified of an individuals presence in a facility when they are entered into a database accessible by all law enforcement. Once an individual is processed into the detention center ICE has the opportunity to obtain appropriate court orders or warrants to take someone into custody.

    We will comply with these legal court orders.

    In response to a statement made by immigration officials today Sheriff Birkhead offers the following statement "It is unfortunate that ICE is now becoming more active in North Carolina, specifically in Durham. The recent actions of ICE agents are making persons, in our community, afraid of law enforcement. The decision I made to not honor ICE detainers was in part to help ALL of Durham's people feel safe and encourage our residents to feel like they can trust my deputies, and law enforcement in general. And, if ICE agents presented a warrant, which is based on probable cause, in my capacity as sheriff I would support such an action."

    Good deal. Those counties no longer want to play nice with ICE, so ICE will play rough with them!

    Arrests and deportations are costly. Trump needs to take away the freebies and these parasites will self-deport. Trump has legal authority right now to

    1. Remove all illegal kids from our schools

    2. End 99% of the free health care illegals get at ERs

    3. Stop all welfare given to illegals

    4. End the practice of letting illegals have drivers licenses

    Also, those flooding across the border pregnant and full of diseases need to be shipped out ASAP!

    FAST TRACK DEPORT ALL UAC'S INTO THE CARE AND CUSTODY OF THEIR PRESIDENT...WE ARE NOT THEIR BABY DADDY!

    We should not pay their healthcare and child birth costs!

    SEND THEM HOME!

    I agree, but let's not get things out of context here. This was a directed ICE response to the counties that, with the elections of new county sheriff's, have refused to corporate with ICE and purposely dropped out of the 287(g) program. ICE is letting these folks know that if they won't allow them to take criminal illegals out of the jails, they'll go out into the communities and take them.

    I'm with you though, ICE should be a lot more active than they seem to be. However, unfortunately they are spread thin. We need a lot more ICE agents and they need to be doing more to actively seek out illegals, all illegals, for deportation.

    While this is good news, it somewhat disheartening to hear ICE isn’t interested / able to conduct routine enforcement at job sites throughout the country. Targeting “criminals “ will never be enough. Most every construction site is filled with illegals who are in fact committing identify fraud and tax evasion using 1099 tax forms, which would surely be considered crimes for American citizens.Trump promised the forgotten people will be forgotten no more , but it no relief is in site for American workers in the trades. Worksite enforcent in the interior of the countryis the only thing that will help many people .
