In just one week, over 600 people across America have been arrested, spanning 11 different states, but that’s not even the most shocking part. As it turns out, all of those taken into custody had one single thing in common with one another – and many are saying it’s downright chilling.
Never has our country seen a president so intent on delivering their campaign promises as Donald Trump has proven to be. What’s even more surprising is that he’s wasted no time tackling his major promises, knocking just about all of them out during his first few weeks.
Of course, he’s met some resistance – out of nothing more than spite and partisanship – making things more difficult than originally planned, but that isn’t stopping him. Most recently, he’s turned his focus on that of illegal immigration and has directed the law enforcement agencies operating under his command to secure out country by removing those illegally here.
In fact, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has made more than 600 arrests in the past 7 days and that’s just in 11 states. With those states not even empty of the criminals that reside within their borders and the other 37 contiguous United States left to sort through, one can only imagine what the final number will look like when Trump is done.
Furthermore, 40 people were most recently apprehended in New York City as Trump continues to ramp up efforts on that front. Although the left is already starting to whine over the long-awaited action, ICE is already shutting down the complaints:
“New York was late to the game,” said an agency official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because details about who had been detained were still being learned. The official said the arrests had not been impromptu and had been planned around individuals’ routines, adding that a fuller account would be available on Monday.
“All these people are in violation of some sort of immigration law,” the official said, adding that some of their convictions included rape and aggravated assault. “We’re not going out to Walmart to check papers — we know who we are going out to seek.” [Source: The New York Times]
Sadly, this reality was brought about by Barack Obama’s pathetic policies that not only put lives in danger but is now going to tear families apart. By allowing people to think that breaking our laws was acceptable and letting the criminals who crossed our borders illegally settle in and get comfortable, this is now what has to be done in terms of legal action.
Even Obama himself once admitted that our nation is one of laws, although he didn’t seem to abide by too many himself. Unfortunately, someone always has to clean up the mess regardless of who made it – and the left only has themselves to blame for enabling the criminal behavior in the first place.
