Ice Arrests of Immigrants Under the Current Administration

Did you know that roughly half of the 675 immigrants arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents in February had either no criminal convictions, or had at most committed traffic violations?

The report by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) showed 176 immigrants arrested during the raids had not been convicted of a crime. The largest group of immigrants with convictions, 205, committed traffic offenses, of which 161 had been convicted of driving under the influence. The second largest number in the group, 33, had been convicted of another traffic offense.

The report comes during a troubling time for undocumented immigrants, who have faced the looming threat of deportation as a result of the current administration’s policies.
