    ICE arrests 25 criminal aliens in central Florida




    ORLANDO, Fla. – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers arrested 25 criminal aliens from Feb. 29 to March 4 during a targeted enforcement action targeting criminal aliens who pose a threat to public safety. ERO officers made the arrests across central Florida.

    All of those arrested by ICE during last week’s enforcement action met one of the agency’s top two enforcement priorities. All encountered had criminal records, some were felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as manslaughter, child abuse, robbery, false imprisonment, felony DUI, hit and run, armed burglary, racketeering, as well as weapons and drug violations.


    “ICE prioritizes convicted criminals and public safety threats for apprehension and removal,” said Marc J. Moore, field office director for the Miami ERO Field Office, which oversees all of Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. “Our enforcement actions last week made our communities safer today.”


    One of those detained during the law enforcement action was previously removed from the U.S. and is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for felony re-entry after deportation.


    Arrests included:



    • On Feb. 29, ERO officer arrested a Moroccan citizen with a robbery conviction.
    • On Feb. 29, ERO officers arrested a citizen of Ecuador with a grand theft conviction.


    Those arrested represented countries including: Ecuador, the United Kingdom, Morocco, Mexico, Turks & Caicos, El Salvador, Jamaica, Trinidad, Canada, England and Guyana.


    All of the targets in this operation met the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) two top immigration enforcement priorities as established in DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson’s November 2014memorandum. Priority 1 targets include threats to national security, criminal street gang members, convicted felons, and aggravated felons. Priority 2 targets include convictions for three or more misdemeanors or convictions for significant misdemeanors, including DUIs.


    Secretary Johnson has directed ICE to prioritize the use of enforcement personnel, detention space, and removal assets to support the Department’s civil immigration enforcement priorities. ICE continues to work with local law enforcement partners to uphold public safety, while taking dangerous criminals out of our communities.


    In fiscal 2015, ICE removed or returned 235,413 individuals. Of this total, 165,935 were apprehended while, or shortly after, attempting to illegally enter the United States. The remaining 69,478 were apprehended in the interior of the United States, and the vast majority of these were convicted criminals who fell within ICE's civil immigration enforcement priorities.


    Ninety-eight percent of ICE's fiscal 2015 removals and returns fell into one or more of ICE's civil immigration enforcement priorities, with 86 percent falling in Priority 1 and eight percent in Priority 2. In addition, ICE's interior enforcement activities led to an increase in the percentage of interior removals that were convicted criminals, growing from 82 percent in fiscal 2013 to 91 percent in 2015.

    25 Illegal Immigrants Arrested for Crimes in Central Florida



    by CAROLINE MAY
    15 Mar 2016

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has arrested more than two dozen criminal aliens throughout central Florida, at least one of whom was previously deported from the United States.

    In what the agency terms a “targeted enforcement action,” ICE officers with Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arrested 25 criminal aliens from February 29 through March 4.

    In keeping with the administration’s so-called “enforcement priorities” — which largely only enforces immigration law against those illegal immigrants who have committed a bad enough crime — the arrested criminal aliens had all committed offenses that met the administration’s top two priority levels.

    Per the administration’s enforcement priorities — released in conjunction with President Obama’s November 2014 executive amnesty programs — “Priority 1” illegal immigrants are those who are a national security threat, gang member, and/or those convicted of felonies. “Priority 2” include illegal immigrants convicted of three or more misdemeanors or of “significant” misdemeanors, including drunk-driving.

    “ICE prioritizes convicted criminals and public safety threats for apprehension and removal,” Marc J. Moore, field office director for the Miami ERO Field Office, said in a statement. “Our enforcement actions last week made our communities safer today.”

    According to ICE, offenses committed by those illegal immigrants arrested included manslaughter, child abuse, robbery, false imprisonment, felony DUI, hit and run, armed burglary, racketeering, and weapons and drug offenses.

    The arrestees’ countries of origin included Ecuador, the United Kingdom, Morocco, Mexico, Turks & Caicos, El Salvador, Jamaica, Trinidad, Canada, England, and Guyana.

    In recent years the Obama administration has come under fire for releasing criminal illegal immigrants back into the U.S. rather than deporting them. Monday, the Center for Immigration Studies released a report detailing how since 2010, 124 criminal aliens released by “Obama administration policies” went on to be charged with murder.

    Recent estimates pin the number of criminal aliens with deportation orders currently at large in the U.S. at 179,000.

    According to ICE, “Ninety-eight percent of ICE’s fiscal 2015 removals and returns fell into one or more of ICE’s civil immigration enforcement priorities, with 86 percent falling in Priority 1 and eight percent in Priority 2.”
