39 arrested in San Diego County for immigration-related crimes

Federal agents in San Diego County have arrested 39 people for immigration-related offenses, more than half of them felons convicted of crimes ranging from domestic violence to car theft and drug-related offenses, authorities said.

Most of the suspects -- 29 men and 10 women -- were arrested in their homes in San Diego and the northern San Diego County cities of Carlsbad, Vista, Poway and Oceanside, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

They originally are from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Somalia and the Philippines. They will be immediately deported or held for immigration hearings.

The three-day sweep was led by ICE’s fugitives operations program, which targets criminal aliens and immigration fugitives.

Agents have made 1,343 arrests so far this federal fiscal year ending Sept. 30. Last year, agents made 1,157 arrests, authorities said.

39 locked up..Great work!!!2 million to go!!!!great work dont stop PLEASE!!!

I'll bet they could find another 750,000 in L A County.

When will you idiots wise up and vote to remove the SANCTUARY proponents from office?

Good work, if true. Now go get the other 1,086 just like them dwelling in the county plus the 28.900 or more plain illegal aliens squatting there.

Please do not deport them until after they vote for Boxer!

Crime is dropping in Arizona by leaps and bounds. These last three years with the ICE immigration sweeps, stolen ID enforcement, Sheriff crime supression in illegal alien neighborhoods. SB1070. Illegals are getting the picture and leaving. Crime is going with them!!!!

1343 out of 50 million, NOT BAD ICE.

Gee, "only" domestic violence, car theft, and drug-related offenses--is that all? That's so mean to deport people only for that.

Well, at least it's a start. Keep calling or E-Mailing Boxer and Feinstein they may not listen but at least we have said our piece concerning this invasion by 20 million criminals. So far according to "FAIR" an immigration reform group,Calif. pays out over 20 Billion dollars ayear for illegal alien benefits. Go to their website and learn what all our newspapers won't tell us when it comes to the real costs of the illegals.

How is it that convicted illegal alien felons are allowed to remain here after their sentence? How is it that they were not tagged and deported after they served their time?

Simple: They are wanted here. Therefore the authorities do everything they can to avoid deporting them.

The "rule of law", what a joke! This country is so corrupt only Mexico tops us.
Welcome to third world America.
