ICE Completed Crackdown on Gangs: Arrested 445 Foreign Nationals

Federal agents arrested almost 1,400 people across the country in what immigration officials are calling the "largest gang surge" in its investigative arm's history, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan announced today.

"Of the 1,378 total arrested", the statement read, "1,098 were arrested on federal and/or state criminal charges, including 21 individuals arrested on murder related charges and seven for rape and sexual assault charges".

"Majority of the arrests come from narcotics trafficking, weapons trafficking, human smuggling and trafficking", Vicente said.

Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say an initiative to round up violent gang members nationwide is making progress. The other 280 were arrested for being in the USA illegally.

The largest number of arrests took place in metropolitan areas around Houston, New York, Atlanta, and Newark, N.J.

A majority of the arrests - 933 out of the 1,378 - are US citizens, officials said.

Eleven members of MS-13 were arrested at a Falls Church residence on April 26 with the help of Fairfax County police.

Acting Director for ICE Thomas Homan in a Thursday announcement emphasized the role of local law enforcement in fighting gang activity and harped on the threat gangs posed to communities. Homan said that practice hurts law enforcement and puts the public at risk.

Three of the gangsters arrested had previously been granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

The other 280 were arrested on administrative immigration violations.

ICE somewhat routinely conducts such large gang surge operations. Outside of this operation, many others have had their DACA revoked by USCIS for gang membership, but remain in the country.

According to a press release, the 55 people in Arizona who were arrested included 48 citizens, seven foreign nationals, 16 confirmed gang members, and seven gang associates.
