Two men accused of smuggling more than 30 pounds of cocaine across the U.S.-Mexico border before being arrested in Boyle Heights this week face deportation because they have been living in the country illegally, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection official said Wednesday.

Massive drug bust in Boyle Heights could lead to more deportations, authorities say - LA Times

Good. Now to catch and deport MORE illegal aliens.

"It is possible that the Border Patrol may actively seek to initiate removal proceedings for these individuals after their criminal cases are adjudicated and they are eligible for release, he said.

Why only may? And why release them? Don't they qualify for expedited removal?

They say "may" because for some reason, they're not deporting all criminals. I don't know if they're backlogged, but they're especially not deporting most women criminals, and of course, don't touch a precious "dreamer"no matter what they do.

Right. But in this case If they just entered the country they're easily deported

Isn't this an example of what California wants?
They are challenging Trumps crack down on Sanctuary cities/ states so that must mean they want illegal aliens living there. Reading between the lines I would say that the state is discriminating against these guys because they choose to make a living smuggling drugs.

By arresting these guys is California saying that they only want the good illegal aliens that keep their heads down and do what they are told? I thought they sunshine state was all about celebrating diversity?

I wonder if the brats at Berkeley will stage a protest to free these drug dealers?
