680 Arrested in ICE Raids

A total of 680 people were arrested in a series of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids last week, the Department of Homeland Security said Monday. The raids targeted undocumented immigrants in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Chicago, San Antonio, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina, DHS Secretary John Kelly said. While details on the raids were unavailable, Kelly claimed 75 percent of those arrested were criminals. Kelly also said the raids were routine and not a sign of a Trump initiative to crack down on undocumented immigrants. Previous ICE efforts under the Obama administration have seen more than 2,000 people arrested over a five-day period.
