Federal officials have detained 100 immigrants and counting suspected of violating immigration laws after their current immigration sweep, which began Sunday.
The sweep is focusing on “individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security,” Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Sarah Rodriguez said.
“This means that, ideally, we are working with local police and county jails to identify public safety threats in their custody, who are also in the country illegally, for deportation,” Rodriguez said in a written statement.
Former Congressman and now right-wing talk show host, Joe Walsh, tweeted, “More to follow. Good work. These criminals shouldn’t be here.”
