SHARE 58 criminal aliens arrested in Chicago area in monthlong ICE crackdown

Fifty-eight men were arrested in the Chicago area as part of a monthlong operation by the U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement to round up convicted criminal aliens.

The enforcement, which began May 18 and ended June 13, resulted in the arrest of 280 people in six Midwestern states, according to a statement from ICE.

The 58 arrested in the Chicago area were from Mexico, China, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Poland and El Salvador, and 34 of those arrests were made in Chicago.

One of those arrested was a 36-year-old Mexican national and documented Vice Lord who had been convicted of aggravated drunken driving causing great bodily harm, felon possessing a firearm, and leaving the scene of an accident. He was arrested May 26 in Joliet and remains in ICE custody awaiting deportation.

“Our dedicated officers strive to make our communities safer by arresting convicted criminal aliens and removing them from the United States,” ERO field office director Ricardo Wong said in the statement. “By focusing our efforts on the most egregious offenders, we ensure the very best use of our resources while immediately improving public safety.”
