ICE arrests 498 in 'sanctuary city' raids; 33 in Portland


The release noted that 18 of the 498 people arrested were gang members or have gang affiliations.

"ICE is forced to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests in these communities", Homan continued.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney slammed a sweeping federal raid this week that ended in almost 500 arrests of undocumented immigrants nationwide, including 107 in Philly. There were also many arrests in Northern California; Boston; Denver; and Portland, Oregon.

"I know a lot of people that don't have papers, so it's kind of sad that they're afraid of going out of the house", says hairdresser Bernice Maldonado. After he was arrested, agents found a loaded handgun in his pocket. ICE said their officers did not target anyone protected under DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The letter was in response to a complaint from Tani Cantil-Sakauye, California's chief justice, after she complained about agents "stalking" courthouses to make arrests.

But the increase in arrests of undocumented immigrants without criminal records accounts for 59 percent of the rise in national immigration arrests, comparing the first six months of Trump's presidency with the same period in 2016.

Most of those netted in the raids, according to ICE officials, originated from India, Mexico, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, and Guatemala.

In a Twitter thread responding to news of the raids on Thursday, Scott Hechinger, a senior staff attorney with Brooklyn Defender Services, ripped ICE's claim that it is only targeting "dangerous" criminals as a false rhetorical stunt meant to perpetuate "Trump's lie that immigrants are 'rapists and murderers'".
