    Federal Immigration Agents Round up 123 People in Texas


    SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Federal immigration agents in Texas say they've arrested 123 immigrants with criminal records or who were living in the country illegally.

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement Friday that the people were apprehended during an eight-day operation that ended Wednesday.

    Most of the immigrants were arrested in San Antonio or the South Texas cities of Harlingen and Laredo, and authorities say all had prior criminal convictions.

    Most came from Mexico but authorities say others were natives of Honduras, Guatemala and other countries.

    ICE periodically carries out large operations in which agents round up dozens of immigrants.


    For instance ICE announced in April that agents had arrested 153 immigrants in South Texas.

    ICE arrests 123 in Central and South Texas operation


    POSTED: JUL 21 2017 11:20AM CDT
    UPDATED: JUL 21 2017 11:20AM CDT



    U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement officers arrested 123 people in central and south Texas over an eight-day period that ended on Wednesday, July 19, 2017.

    There were 115 men and eight women arrested in Austin, Waco, Harlingen, Laredo and San Antonio. 13 of the total were arrested in Austin alone.


    ICE said that all the illegal immigrants targeted in the eight-day enforcement action had previous criminal convictions. Of those actually arrested, 93 had criminal histories ranging from aggravated assault and child abuse convictions to illegal entry. ICE said the remaining 30 were arrested for immigration violations.


    “This operation was focused on targeting immigration fugitives and criminal aliens,” Daniel Bible, the field office director of Enforcement and Removal Operation San Antonio said. “Public safety remains a top priory for ICE. This was a focused eight-day enforcement operation over a large area, but we routinely conduct operations daily.”

    ENFORCEMENT AND REMOVAL

    07/21/2017



    123 arrested in Central and South Texas during ICE operation targeting criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants and immigration fugitives

    SAN ANTONIO — Federal officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arrested a total of 123 criminal aliens and immigration violators throughout Central and South Texas during an eight-day enforcement action which ended Wednesday.

    During the July 10-19 operation, ERO officers made arrests in the following Central and South Texas cities: Austin (13), Waco (3), Harlingen (44), Laredo (27) and San Antonio (36). Of those arrested, 115 were men; eight were women.


    All the aliens targeted by ERO officers during this enforcement action had prior criminal convictions. The majority of those arrested, 93, had criminal histories that included convictions for the following crimes: aggravated assault, assault, child abuse, domestic violence, cocaine possession, fraud, driving under the influence (DUI), drug trafficking, felony marijuana possession, illegal entry, illegal re-entry after deportation, larceny, possessing a controlled substance, and weapons possession; 30 were arrested on immigration violations.


    Individuals arrested during this operation are from the following countries: Mexico (102), Honduras (13), Guatemala (5) El Salvador (1) Jamaica (1) and Cuba (1).

    Following are criminal summaries of the four worst offenders arrested during this operation:

    • A 46-year-old Mexican man was arrested July 11 in Harlingen by ERO officers. He was convicted of manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance. He was also removed six times to Mexico; he has three resultant federal convictions for illegal re-entry after deportation. He is again being federally prosecuted for illegal re-entry. He remains in U.S. Marshals’ custody pending the outcome of his criminal case.
    • A 41-year-old Mexican man twice convicted of assault-family violence, convicted of assault-bodily injury, and recently arrested for possessing a controlled substance was arrested July 11 by ERO officers in Austin. He is in ICE custody pending a removal hearing.
    • A 51-year-old Mexican man convicted of heroin possession was arrested by ICE officers July 12 in Laredo. He was previously deported and was federally convicted four times for illegal re-entry after deportation. He is in ICE custody pending his removal.
    • A 39-year-old Mexican man was arrested July 12 in San Antonio by ERO officers. He was convicted of two counts of lewd act on a child and one count of impregnating a minor; he was twice deported, and was convicted for illegal re-entry after deportation. He is again being federally prosecuted for illegal re-entry. He remains in U.S. Marshals’ custody pending the outcome of his criminal case.


    During the course of the operation, two aliens that were arrested who had outstanding warrants. One alien was turned over to the ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Task Force due to an outstanding warrant for Alien Smuggling. The other was turned to the Travis County Sheriff’s Office based on an outstanding warrant for possessing marijuana. In the interest of public safety, ERO turned this alien over to the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, despite the fact that it refuses to honor all ICE detainers.


    “This operation was focused on targeting immigration fugitives and criminal aliens,” said Daniel Bible, field office director of ERO San Antonio. “Public safety remains a top priory for ICE. This was a focused eight-day enforcement operation over a large area, but we routinely conduct operations daily.”


    All of the targets in this operation were amenable to arrest and removal under the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act.


    ICE deportation officers carry out targeted enforcement operations daily nationwide as part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to protect the nation, uphold public safety, and protect the integrity of our immigration laws and border controls.


    These operations involve existing and established Fugitive Operations Teams.


    During the targeted enforcement operations, ICE officers frequently encounter other aliens illegally present in the United States. These aliens are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and, when appropriate, they are arrested by ICE officers.
