    WASHINGTON — As part of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) ongoing commitment to prioritizing the removal of criminal aliens and egregious immigration law violators, the agency announced today the results of a six-day national "Cross Check" enforcement operation-which led to the arrest of more than 3,100 convicted criminal aliens, immigration fugitives and immigration violators.

    "The results of this targeted enforcement operation underscore ICE's ongoing commitment and focus on the arrest and removal of convicted criminal aliens and those that game our nation's immigration system," said ICE Director John Morton. "Because of the tireless efforts and teamwork of ICE officers and agents in tracking down criminal aliens and fugitives, there are 3,168 fewer criminal aliens and egregious immigration law violators in our neighborhoods across the country."

    This six-day operation, the largest of its kind, involved the collaboration of more than 1,900 ICE officers and agents from all of ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations' (ERO) 24 field offices, assistance from ICE Homeland Security Investigations as well as coordination with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners throughout the United States. Arrests occurred in all 50 states, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, three U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.

    ERO officers arrested 2,834 individuals that had prior criminal convictions including at least 1,063 aliens who had multiple criminal convictions. Of those arrested, had felony convictions including murder, manslaughter, attempted murder, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, terroristic threats, drug trafficking, child abuse, battery on a child, sexual crimes against minors, and aggravated assault. Of the total 2,834 criminal aliens arrested, 50 were gang members and 149 were convicted sex offenders.

    In addition to being convicted criminals, 698 of those arrested were also immigration fugitives who had previously been ordered to leave the country but failed to depart. Additionally, 559 were illegal re-entrants who had been previously removed from the country. Because of their serious criminal histories and prior immigration arrest records, at least 204 of those arrested during the enforcement action were presented to U.S attorneys for prosecution on a variety of charges including illegal re-entry after deportation, a felony which carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison.

    The arrestees include:
    Carlington David Richards, 34, a national of Jamaica, who was residing in Federal Way, Wash., is a recent border entrant and an international fugitive from justice, wanted in Jamaica for murder. ERO officers received an INTERPOL lead, which subsequently led to his capture. He was placed into ICE custody pending removal proceedings.
    Jose Angel Duran-Ramos, 66, a national of Mexico, who was residing in El Paso, Texas, convicted of murder on July 10, 1984, and sentenced to 18 years in prison. He was an at-large criminal alien. He is currently in ICE custody pending removal proceedings.
    Veasna Uy, 34, a national of Cambodia, who was residing in Long Beach, Calif., who was an immigration fugitive convicted on April 5, 2000, of manslaughter, attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon. He was placed in ICE custody pending removal from the United States.

    ICE conducted the first successful Cross Check operation in December 2009, and has since conducted seven regional and two national Cross Check operations resulting in the arrest of more than 7,400 convicted criminal aliens. This operation is the third nationwide Cross Check operation in the agency's history. The first nationwide Cross Check operation occurred at the end of May 2011 and resulted in the arrest of 2,442 convicted criminal aliens. The last Cross Check operation in September 2011 resulted in the arrest of 2,901 convicted criminal aliens.

    Last week's enforcement action was spearheaded by ICE's National Fugitive Operations Program (NFOP), which is responsible for investigating, locating, arresting and removing at-large criminal aliens and immigration fugitives. The officers who conducted last week's operation received substantial assistance from ICE's Fugitive Operations Support Center (FOSC), ICE's Law Enforcement Support Center (LESC) and the Criminal Alien Program.

    ICE is focused on smart, effective immigration enforcement that targets serious criminal aliens who present the greatest risk to the security of our communities, such as those charged with or convicted of homicide, rape, robbery, kidnapping, major drug offenses and threats to national security. ICE also prioritizes the arrest and removal of those who game the immigration system including immigration fugitives or those criminal aliens who have been previously deported and illegally re-entered the country.

    WASHINGTON and PHOENIX -- Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers arrested more than 3,100 criminal aliens in a six-day nationwide operation that's the largest of its kind.

    As part of Operation Cross Check, arrests were made in all 50 states, as well as Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and three U.S. territories.

    "The results of this targeted enforcement operation underscore ICE's ongoing commitment and focus on the arrest and removal of convicted criminal aliens and those that game our nation's immigration system," said ICE Director John Morton in a news release Monday morning. "Because of the tireless efforts and teamwork of ICE officers and agents in tracking down criminal aliens and fugitives, there are 3,168 fewer criminal aliens and egregious immigration law violators in our neighborhoods across the country."

    Operation Cross Check involved nearly 2,000 ICE officers who coordinated with federal, state and local law-enforcement agencies.

    As part of the massive sweep, ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations officers arrested more than 2,800 individual who had prior criminal convictions for everything from child abuse to assault to murder to drug trafficking. More than 1,000 of them had multiple criminal convictions and 149 were convicted sex offenders.

    Nearly 700 of those arrested were immigration fugitives who had defied previous orders to leave the county, and 559 had returned to the U.S. illegally after being removed from the country.

    Numbers from the Phoenix portion of the operation were not immediately available.

    The first successful Cross Check Operation took place in December 2009. Seven regional and two national operations have happened since, the most recent being last September.

    Immigration officials arrested more than 3,100 undocumented immigrants with criminal records, fugitives and those with immigration violations in a six-day operation nationwide, 100 of those were arrested in San Diego County, the Department of Homeland Security announced Monday.

    "The results of this targeted enforcement operation underscore ICE's ongoing commitment and focus on the arrest and removal of convicted criminal aliens and those that game our nation's immigration system," said John Morton, director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    The “Cross-Check” operation, a record enforcement effort, involved 1,900 ICE officers and agents from 24 field offices, as well as help from other law enforcement including state and local police. Undocumented immigrants were arrested in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, three U.S. territories and the District of Columbia. The operation was led by ICE’s National Fugitive Operations Program.

    Among the arrested 2,834 had prior criminal convictions and of those 1,063 had multiple convictions, 50 were gang members, 149 were convicted sex offenders, 698 also had failed to obey prior deportation orders and 559 had been previously removed from the U.S., according to ICE.

    At least 204 of the cases were referred to the U.S. attorney’s office based on charges including re-entry after deportation.

    In San Diego, arrestees included:
    •A Mexican man, 45, in Vista, convicted of forgergy and posession of a controlled substance and who had previously been deported.
    •A Jamaican man, 52, in Pala, convicted of cruelty to a child by inflicting injury, battery and selling illicit drugs.
    •A Somali man, 49, in San Diego, convicted of conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute and import Khat, a stimulant derived from a flowering plant native to Africa.

    Since 2009 when the first “Cross-Check” operation was conducted it has netted more than 7,400 arrests. This was the third time the operation was conducted across the nation; smaller regional operations have also taken place in recent years.

    C'mon ICE and Obama administration what percent is 3,100 of 11 million of illegal aliens we have in the country. It is not enough "we the people" want more deportations, at least 50% of 11 million.
    Illegal immigration is a serious problem compared to a virus or a plague if we don't fight it on time the consequences would be catastrophic.
