ICE has captured 44 illegal aliens in Austin, Tx in the past week. They are refusing to talk about it and won’t even say if they are in the middle of an operation. Rep Joaquin Castro, an open borders liberal who is for letting the illegals stay and deporting the Americans, claims he’s been told it’s part of Operation Crosscheck, a program to track down illegals who have committed crimes.
“I have been informed by ICE that the agency’s San Antonio field office has launched a targeted operation in South and Central Texas as part of Operation Cross Check. I am asking ICE to clarify whether these individuals are in fact dangerous, violent threats to our communities, and not people who are here peacefully raising families and contributing to our state. I will continue to monitor this situation.”
ICE Spokesperson Adelina Pruneda refused to comment on anything, including the number of arrests and whether it is going to be an ongoing operation. She did say that one ICE agent was moderately injured when the family of one of those criminals arrested, tried to fight the agents. He was treated at an emergency clinic and released. No word on whether there were arrests for obstruction.
President Donald Trump stated, during his campaign for president, that he would prioritize the arrest and deportation of criminal aliens. However, ICE roundup operations of this nature are regularly scheduled during the first part of the year.
The Mexican consul general in San Antonio claimed that Operation Crosscheck is underway in six different states, the Austin American-Statesman reported. ICE agents have arrested 44 criminal aliens in the past two days.
