    DENVER - Authorities tracked a wanted man, reportedly part of the MS-13 gang, to Colorado. ICE announced the deportation of 23-year-old Oscar Antonio Rosas-Alas. He was located and arrested in Eagle County in March of 2018. He was deported on Wednesday. Rosas-Alas was wanted in his home country of El Salvador for aggravated extortion. Authorities say he entered the country illegally and made his way to Colorado where he "gained the attention of local peace officers." “Our ICE officers aggressively work to remove dangerous criminal aliens from the United States, such as Rosas-Alas,” said Jeffrey D. Lynch, field office director...
  • Illegal Aliens Arrested in Workplace Raid Sue Fed Agents for Racial Profiling

    Represented by an extremist nonprofit that lists conservative organizations on a catalogue of “hate groups,” seven illegal immigrants detained in a workplace raid are suing the federal agents that arrested them, claiming that they were racially profiled for being Latino. In a federal court complaint filed this week by their pro bono attorneys at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the illegal aliens assert that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents violated their Constitutional rights against illegal seizures and to equal protection under the Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The raid occurred last spring at a slaughterhouse...

    A man caught on body camera footage attempting to kill a California sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop this week had been deported three times before, but local officials had shielded him from ICE in recent years. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said they had lodged four separate “detainer” requests asking local authorities to hold Javier Hernandez-Morales for pickup after he’d been booked for local charges at California jails. Each request was refused, leaving him out on the streets on Sunday, when he tried to kill Napa County Sheriff’s Deputy Riley Jarecki. “This incident may have been prevented if...

    (Gateway Pundit): Ten years ago today… Democrat Ilhan Omar married her biological brother. Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn. Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis. The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother. Power Line reported: A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar...

    Another scandal for the "scandal-free" Obama administration. Not all ICE targets work construction or smuggle drugs. Some are key figures in the Dem machine. But the era of Obama corruption is over. There's a new sheriff in town. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) this week arrested two millionaire fugitives from Ecuador whose family donated heavily to American political campaigns. Roberto and William Isaías, 74 and 75, were detained Wednesday in Miami and taken to a detention facility for undocumented immigrants awaiting deportation, The New York Times reported Friday. ICE told the Times that the brothers were “unlawfully present” in...

But he gained … under impossible conditions,” ...While a country mile away from being able to declare it a victory, the number of wins the GOP won in the three weeks of negotiations were sizable.

    U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., tried to amend a gun control bill from U.S. House Democrats to ensure law enforcement is notified when a potential gunbuyer–including illegal immigrants– fails a federal background check. Looking to amend the Democrats’ “Bipartisan Background Checks Act,” from his perch on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, Steube used language from U.S. Rep. David Cicilline’s, D-RI, “Unlawful Gun Buyer Alert Act” which has the support of U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-NY, the chairman of the committee. But both Cicilline and Nadler voted against his amendment. “Clearly, the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee don’t care about...

    During a press conference in the White House Rose Garden on Friday morning, President Trump pledged to “take care” of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents moments before signing policy into law that strips the agency of deportation powers. “ICE is abused by the press and by the Democrats,” Trump said. “And by the way, we’re going to be taking care of ICE. Whether we talk about the new bill … we’re going to be taking care of ICE. They wanted to get rid of ICE and the bill is just the opposite of that.” The bipartisan spending package, however,...

    A former Uber driver from Holliston charged with sexually assaulting a passenger was taken into custody by ICE agents after pleading not guilty. Bail was set at $3,000 for Jose Arevalos-Avalos after entering his plea Monday to charges of indecent assault and battery and attempting to pay for sexual conduct. But immigration officials said he is being held and faces deportation. The woman told Ashland police she was getting a ride to work on Friday when her Uber driver offered her $100 for sex. Police say the 37-year-old Arevalos-Avalos groped the woman after she refused. Uber helped police identify the...

    President Trump said Monday that Democrats are now in control of whether there will be a government shutdown at the end of the week, saying their last-minute demands to detain fewer illegal immigrants are poisoning negotiations. The president also announced his administration had begun building a “big, big” new section of border wall, as he pressed Congress for more money to keep construction going, and to sustain the ability of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain illegal immigrants. Standing with sheriffs at the White House, Mr. Trump read out a list of crimes committed by illegal immigrants detained in...

    Negotiations over a bipartisan deal for border-security funding have broken down, aides familiar with the talks and other officials said Sunday, increasing the likelihood of another government shutdown at the end of the week. ... The talks this weekend snagged over the issue of how many detention beds would be provided at the border for housing people detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. Democrats have been seeking to limit the number of ICE detention beds in exchange for meeting GOP demands to build more physical barriers along the border. Republicans, however, wanted exceptions to the limits. Democrats had proposed...

    Health officials on Saturday confirmed seven mumps cases at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Houston. The Houston Health Department said in a press release that the cases involved seven adults who were detained during their infectious period -- meaning there was no evidence that anyone outside the facility was infected. “Since these individuals were isolated inside the facility during the period they were infectious, we do not anticipate these cases posing a threat to the community,” said Dr. David Persse, Houston’s local health authority and EMS medical director. Health officials are working with the ICE facility...

    New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday vowed to defund U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and said all Latino people must be exempt from immigration laws because they are “native” to U.S. lands as they are descendants of Native people. The Democrat Socialist made a speech against immigration laws and promised to abolish ICE just before she unveiled her widely-mocked Green New Deal on the same day. Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib also joined the calls to abolish ICE.

    Hundreds of immigrants in the U.S. illegally were arrested this week in North Carolina after some local law agencies stopped cooperating with immigration enforcement, a federal official said Friday. Immigration and Customs Enforcement regional director Sean Gallagher said the arrests resulted from what he termed “the dangerous policies of not cooperating with ICE,” The Charlotte Observer reported. […] ICE officers have detained 200 people in North Carolina this week. Another 25 were detained at an arms manufacturer in Sanford. Gallagher said more such arrests are likely when ICE is restricted from accessing county jails. …

    Yesterday, the Democrats found out that their new stars aren’t merely leftists approaching the definition of communist, but instead are so unmoored from reality that they spout what amounts to gibberish. The first example, of course, is Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, which was so ridiculous her staff took down its webpage. When the Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strassel read it, she said that she laughed so hard she nearly cried. “If a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is,” she tweeted, “they could not have done a better job....

    “I’m mad, y’all!” she said, wiping away an honest-to-goodness tear shed over the “Deportation Force,” aka ICE, which Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found time to address at a rally outside the Capitol yesterday. Whether you agree with her — and a coterie of far-left House Democrats do, having introduced a bill last July to abolish ICE — you have to admit her energy is boundless. Much of her day yesterday was spent promoting her Green New Deal, which she also proclaimed to be an existential crisis that could be solved by coast-to-coast high speed rail transit, eliminating air travel, retrofitting or...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was seen wiping tears from her face after using the death of a seven-year-old migrant child to demand an end to funding for the nation’s border agency. At the event on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, the New York congresswoman said US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) did “not deserve a dime”, until it showed it cared about human rights. “Not only will we not agree to fund [ICE], but we are here to say that an agency like ICE, which repeatedly and systematically violates human rights, does not deserve a dime,” she said.

    The ICE briefer never made it in the room, an administration official said. If he had been allowed to speak, he would have told them that the limits they’re pondering to immigrant detention, proposed by Democrats, would lead to 30,000 people being released back onto the streets, including thousands of migrants with criminal records.
