California: ICE Arrests 905 Undocumented in Three Weeks

La Opinin, Posted: May 24, 2008

LOS ANGELES In the last three weeks, the Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has arrested 905 undocumented immigrants in a special operation in California, reports La Opinin. This means that between May 1 and May 22, a daily average of 41 people were detained in raids across the state. More than one third of these (327 people, or an average of 15 per day) were detained in the Los Angeles area alone. This is more than twice the daily average of undocumented immigrants arrested in Los Angeles between October 2007 and May 2008. Only 25 percent of those detained in the Los Angeles area had criminal records, according to ICE. Of the 905 undocumented immigrants detained in the last three weeks, more than half of them have already been deported from the country and the rest are in custody awaiting deportation or immigration proceedings. In 2006, ICE reports that there were about 600,000 undocumented immigrants in the United States who had not complied with their deportation orders. Thanks to the escalation of operations, ICE now reports that this number has been reduced to 573,000.
