    New Jersey: ICE Arrests 105 Illegal Aliens, Including Some Wanted by Interpol

    The raids “also targeted people who authorities say re-entered the U.S. after being deported and several alleged gang members”

    Earlier this week I wrote about New Jersey’s AG ordering police to stop working with ICE.

    ICE has engaged in a “massive” series of raids in New Jersey and has arrested 105 illegal aliens, including some wanted by Interpol and alleged gang members.  ICE said that the raids were planned prior to the AG’s announcement.

    The New York Post reports:

    Dozens of people were arrested in New Jersey last week as part of a five-day federal immigration sweep.

    Federal officials say the 105 people taken into custody included several who were wanted by Interpol for alleged crimes in their home countries. It also targeted people who authorities say re-entered the U.S. after being deported and several alleged gang members.

    The sweep was conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in 16 of New Jersey’s 21 counties. It began a day after state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced new guidelines that limit law enforcement’s cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

    In a statement Friday announcing the arrests, immigration officials said the operation was planned before Grewal issued his directive.

    The Supreme Court has been very clear on this: states (and cities, acting in their names) have the constitutional right to passively resist ICE by refusing them all assistance, but may not actively interfere with them. So the proper response is exactly what ICE did here; enforce the law using only federal resources, and if that is inconvenient for the state too bad. Remind the state that the usual arrangements for cooperation are not just for ICE’s benefit, they’re for the state’s benefit too, so if it chooses to do without them that’s its problem.

    Much of this problem is due to overgenerous federal funding. If the states had to fully pay for their decisions there would be plenty of cash to fund Federal responsibilities like immigration and national defense. Lower Federal taxes and let the states raise their taxes to fund their citizens priorities. The closer a citizen and his tax money gets to his government the better.
