    Immigration agents arrest more than a dozen in central Oklahoma

    An immigration attorney said the threshold of who is picked up by immigration officials has been lowered by the new administration.

    "It's wide open who they go after," Michael Brooks Jimenez said.

    He represents five of the eight men picked up by immigration agents with the fugitive task force this week in Purcell. Authorities told KOCO 5 that more than a dozen undocumented immigrants were arrested in central Oklahoma.

    "When (agents) go to arrest someone, if they encounter anyone else they think might not be documented, they pick them up as collateral damage," Brooks Jimenez said.

    ICE officials said this week's arrests were part of routine immigration enforcement operations.

    They said Mexican men between 21 and 47 years old were picked up. Some had criminal convictions such as driving under the influence, driving without a license and illegal entry into the U.S. Three of the men had previously been deported.

    Immigration officials announced Monday that nearly 700 arrests were made in raids nationwide.

    "As far as I'm aware of, they're not doing any workplace raids or going and doing big sweeps through parking lots and supermarkets," Brooks Jimenez said.

    Some Hispanic people are concerned, and they took to social media to talk about a license check conducted last weekend by Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers along Interstate 44 and Southwest 29th Street. OHP officials said it was a routine compliance check and was not related to immigration roundups.

    Start checking the VIN #'s in these sanctuary neighborhoods. How many vehicles and RV's are stolen? Add that to the list of charges.
