Deported Immigrants Who Returned To U.S. Arrested

NEW YORK (AP) — Federal immigration authorities in the New York City area have arrested 54 illegal immigrants with criminal records who had previously been deported but re-entered the United States.

Officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the arrests came as part of a four-day sweep conducted in recent days that was the largest operation of its kind.

The arrests were made in New York City, Long Island, and Westchester and Orange counties. Those arrested are now in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.

Authorities said the arrested include a 39-year-old Dominican Republic man convicted of multiple counts of sexual assault involving a child and a 31-year-old Bahamas man convicted of robbery.

    i did not understand how bad the illegal immigration problem was the in U.S. until i moved to queens and worked with the them. they work here, pay no taxes have many children who are citizens, they receive food stamps and medicaid, and get college degrees with grants. this doesn’t affect the rich or the middle class; it affects the poor. i met many who fly to their countries for vacations and return at will. meanwhile, the cost of living continues to rise and the U.S citizens on low or fixed incomes will suffer.

    Meanwhile the Government is pursuing organized crime that barely even exists at this point making deals with murderous people who decide they would rather cooperate then go to prison and then they release them back into our communities great country AMERICA

    its disgusting how these criminals are able to re enter this country at will, thanks to all the BS politicians hellbent on rewarding illegal immigrants & their children with free education & health care. While US citizens are denied health care & even education sometimes
