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.
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.
