Only 35 arrested in ICE Raids

According to acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Matthew Albence on Tuesday, July 23rd Only 35 people were taken into Custody during the recent series of highly publicized raids targeting more than 2,000 immigrant family members that had deportation orders. Of those arrests, Albence said, “ 18 were part of family units and 17 others who were not specifically targeted by the operation.” Albence acknowledged the low number but downplayed the notion the raids fell short of expectations, telling reporters “this is just the beginning of the operation.” Albence said ICE agents ran into a number of challenges that caused officials to call off operations. Trump has made immigration one of the centerpieces of his 2020 reelection campaign. The arrest figures were first reported by the New York Times.
