This is insanity but not surprising .

Because of politics criminals are not being arrested and deported !

--

And, after receiving relatively little attention for years, agents acknowledge the atmosphere and politics of the job has become more fraught as they work under increased scrutiny from politicians and activists.

“That’s just the climate that we’re in,” said Dave Marin, director of enforcement and removal operations for ICE in Los Angeles, “because this issue has brought up such heated concerns on both sides.”

But while arrests by ICE are up 35% nationwide since Trump took office, they remain relatively flat in Southern California. Arrests of immigrants without criminal pasts have remained low in the L.A. region as well, as agents do little, if anything, differently from what they were under the previous administration, Marin said.

Maybe they all will move over there from other parts of the Country. Frankly that will be their issue and when the issue reached the boiling point then the authorities and public will automatically start doing something so just sit back and let them deal with the issues. As long as the rest of us is free if the issue and hopefully sooner than later our premiums will go down or at a minimum not increase.

I don't believe that they are. They're targeting low hanging fruit who already have removal orders.

If you read the article it mentions a mayor that put pressure on ICE because he didn't like that a criminal illegal was arrested ..
it's funny these politicians want "answers" about why ICE is targetting criminal illegals .

This guy was a burglar and committed other crimes and the Mayor of El Monte put pressure on ICE to leave the guy alone!

It's amazing the arrogance of the criminal illegal to tell ICE "you have no heart "

--

"For years, he worked and raised five children with his wife without attracting the attention of immigration officers; but a conviction in 2014 on a felony charge of making criminal threats and a few earlier burglary and theft convictions had made him eligible for deportation.

Rodriguez stepped out from his small, dilapidated house in El Monte, east of downtown Los Angeles, shortly after 7:30 a.m. to begin the short walk to his job at a nearby meat market.

Agents had been secretly watching him make the same walk at the same time for days and now were waiting for him. One agent slipped out of an unmarked SUV and followed behind, while a few others positioned themselves up ahead.

“Why are you doing this? What did I do?” Rodriguez shouted repeatedly in English and Spanish as the agents intercepted him, cuffed his hands and, after a quick pat down, put him in the back of a car. “I go to work! You guys have no heart. You have no heart!”

The agents’ presence did not go unnoticed. Seeing a live television report about the arrest, the mayor of El Monte called his police chief demanding answers. The chief, in turn, called Jorge Field, ICE’s assistant field office director for the L.A. region."

Ok, but I'm sure with more resistance from the community they will have to back down further.

Not according to most Lefty news sources who tell us that families are being torn apart by the evil Trump all over America everyday.

I've stated time and again that I don't support felons. However, I believe that illegals with no criminal record should be provided with a path to legalization. D'accord?
