National sweep picks up almost three thousand immigrants with criminal records

Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) just completed a week-long raid that nabbed 2,901 foreign nationals with criminal records living in the United States, 36 of which were apprehended in New Mexico.

KRQE Channel 13 News has the scoop on the criminals in New Mexico:

Exactly half of the 36 arrests in New Mexico were for drug related offenses, 11 were for violent crimes and one person arrested is a sex offender. The remaining offenses involved property crimes and D.W.I.

In a press release announcing the sweep, called Operation Cross-Check, ICE Director John Morton said, “The results of this targeted enforcement operation underscore ICE’s ongoing commitment and focus on the arrest and removal of convicted criminal aliens and those that game our nation’s immigration system.”

He added: “Because of the tireless efforts and teamwork of ICE officers and agents in tracking down at large criminal aliens and fugitives, there are 2,901 fewer criminal aliens in our neighborhoods across the country.”

Twenty-four ICE field offices collaborated with federal, state and local officials from 50 states and four U.S. territories in the largest targeted effort of its kind.

Some characteristics of the persons captured:

  • At least 1,282 aliens who had multiple criminal convictions.
  • More than 1,600 of those arrested had felony priors of serious crimes like manslaughter, attempted murder, kidnapping, armed robbery, drug trafficking, child abuse, sexual crimes against minors, and aggravated assault.
  • 42 persons were gang members and 151 were convicted sex offenders.
  • 386 were re-entrants previously removed by law enforcement agencies for residing in the U.S. without proper documents.
  • Over 2,600 were men.

In 2009, ICE launched Cross-Check, running raids nationally and in targeted regions.

According to CNN, the persons arrested in the most recent iteration of Cross-Check originated from 115 different countries.

On Monday, The New Mexico Independent reported border apprehensions in New Mexico have dropped by 90 percent compared to five years ago.
