This past week, more than 600 people were detained across the country. These actions, but the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency seemed to not have any rhyme or reason. The only tip off as to why this happened is a tweet by President Trump stating: “The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!”
Our Verdict: While ICE deportations are common place and these people were all here illegally for one reason or another, the timing is suspicious and surprising. The sheer number of detainees is alarming and it seems like the “immigration crackdown” is becoming more uncontrollable.
