ICE Reports that more than 130 undocumented immigrants have been arrested in northern Virginia over the period of last Sunday through Tuesday. The effort was launched as part of a campaign to target and detain criminal aliens.
Of the 163 foreign nationals arrested, approximately 130 of them had criminal records. ICE and other law enforcement officials say that the enforcement effort was focused primarily on illegal immigrants who have criminal records, including convicted sex offenses.
The arrests were announced in Manassas where some local officials have complained that the federal government is not doing enough to enforce immigration laws.
