It has been reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted a four day sweep in Colorado that resulted in the arrest of 85 convicted aliens, 18 of which had already been ordered deported but were fugitives. 73 were men and 12 were women, ranging in age from 34 to 63. The individuals were nationals of nine countries: El Salvador 7, Poland 1, Dominican Republic 1, Guatemala 2, Mexico 66, Uganda 1, South Korea 1, Honduras 5, and Mongolia 1.
Head of ICE John Morton commented:
“These surge operations, and our daily targeting of aliens with criminal convictions, are some of the many tools that ICE uses to effectively reduce crime at the street level in communities throughout the United States.”
