LOS ANGELES - Immigration agents assigned to track down people who have ignored deportation orders have increasingly arrested immigrants with criminal records during the past year, new data show.

Data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement show a shift from the prior three years, when more than 70 percent of immigrants arrested by fugitive-operations teams had no criminal histories.

About 45 percent of the 35,000 immigrants arrested by the teams during fiscal 2009 had criminal convictions.
The figure is up from 23 percent during the prior year.
Arrests up for migrants with records

May there be many more happy returns for those insolent losers back to their home countries!

Call me cynical, but I am not buying this increased enforcement of our laws BS. I believe this is simply part of the strategy to make us believe our government is seriously trying to tackle illegal immigration so they can say, “See, we are securing our borders and arresting 'criminal' illegals. Now, we can proceed to phase 2 -- a path to citizenship for the ‘good’ illegal aliens.”

If they were truly serious about resolving this problem, they wouldn’t continue to give employers probation and nominal fines for employing illegals. They would imprison those greedy traitors, and make it known that anyone who employs illegal aliens will have hell to pay.

However, it is good that they are at least making arrests. Let’s hope they deport them, and prevent them from ever returning. Otherwise, we will continue to have a revolving door at our southern border.

I agree, Benicar. Our government is just throwing a few crumbs at us in regards to enforcement. The only thing that would convince me that they are serious about it would be to put the military on the border and implement e-verify across the nation. I would like to see some serious legislation presented and passed in regards to birthright citizenship, official English and proof of citizenship demanded to claim any taxpayer benefits. Until then, I will continue to be opposed to any CIR that might be presented.

I think there might be -- the irony is that the arrests aren't to protect Americans or our jobs but because many wealthier Mexicans are fleeing cities like Juarez and a couple have already been assassinated by hitmen on this side of the border who then flee back into Mexico.

It's not going to do much good for the drug lords and drug traffickers to move over and demand asylum only to have all their enemies and "sicarios" allowed over to do what they wish to them.
