ICE arrests 49 immigrants in gang sweep

July 18, 2008 CHICAGO - Federal Immigration authorities arrested 49 men in a four-day sweep targeting illegal immigrants and gangs, officials announced Friday.

But the tactic, used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement since 2005, has long drawn criticism from immigrant rights organizations who say the group arrests unfairly target Hispanics.

The operation focused in Chicago's north suburbs, ICE said. Of those arrested, 48 were illegal immigrants and one was a U.S. permanent resident. Most of the men were from Mexico and one was from Guatemala.

The men, who all face deportation, were accused of crimes including arson, battery, burglary and drug possession. ICE said 47 are members or associates of gangs including Brown Pride, Imperial Gangsters, Insane Dueces and Latin Kings.

I didn't realize we had a shortage of criminals. I guess we do, because we keep hearing illegals are only doing what Americans WON'T. Who knew?

They're probably innocent though. You know, more racial profiling and discrimination. These people are being terrorized. These unfair raids must stop!

But Benicar-you left out the part where we cannot allow this "unfairness" to go on because it will rip apart fathers and their children! More tugging at the heartstrings to allow violent illegal gangmembers to stay here

You're absolutely right! Parents should never be separated from their children; which is precisely why no U.S. parents are ever incarcerated.

The "logic" they come up with to avoid deportation is amazing isn't it?
