ICE agents can take someone into custody for immigration violations, said Brian Poulsen, the resident agent in charge of Fresno's Immigration and Customs Enforcement office.

"Most of these gang members have come into the U.S. illegally," he said. "They have already violated federal law. We don't need a criminal charge."
It started in the central San Joaquin Valley with the Feb. 13 arrest in Mendota of Brian Rivera, a member of MS-13.

Federal agents tracked down Rivera based on information provided by a consortium of gang officers from local agencies. He has since been deported to his native El Salvador.

So far, 35 gang members in the country illegally have been deported from the Valley as part of the Operation Community Shield sweeps.
They have been sent to Mexico, Central America and such Southeast Asian nations as Laos.

ICE often has agents in these countries who keep an eye on the gang members after their return to their native land, federal authorities said.
Authorities say they expect some deported gang members to return. Already, two gang members deported from here have returned and been rearrested. But this time, they face a different outcome. Returning to the U.S. after being deported is a felony.

A conviction can mean a sentence of up to 20 years in federal prison, possibly in a distant state where the gang member is unlikely to have any ties with fellow inmates.

That, officials say, is another reason federal prosecutions are more effective than those by the state, which can send convicted gang members to a prison already housing fellow gang members.

This is great news. Start with the violent gangs and then move to the chicken pluckers, landscapers and so on. The gangs scare me to death.

I agree. Unfortunately deportation is only a temporary solution until our border is fully sealed and secured.

bravo!!! get rid of the thugs!!!
and maybe the possibility of a felony will keep them out.

if not, they know what to expect.

but that doesnt really solve the border issue.

i think gang members should be tracked and monitored consistently.
the biggest plague on my community are gangs.

Unfortunately, they probably already have return bus tickets courtesy of the California tax payers and distributed by mayor anchor baby.

They should be the first ones sent out of the country.

They're domestic terrorists.

Interesting that California is swinging into action on the war against illegals.........'something' must have changed in the psyche of that state's leaders.
