Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

ICE arrests 58 Aliens in New England enforcement action, many in sanctuary jurisdictons

Recommended Posts

ICE-officer-arresting-illegal-alien-250x

BOSTON – Officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Boston arrested 58 people in enforcement activities during a 5-day period, ending Dec. 4, in the New England region.

During the enforcement action, of the 58 individuals arrested by ICE’s ERO for violating U.S. immigration laws:

  • 30 had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses;
  • 33 have criminal charges pending;
  • 15 individuals were previously released from local law enforcement custody, correctional facilities  and/or court custody with an active detainer;
  • 9 were referred for criminal prosecution to the appropriate U.S. Attorney’s Office in the jurisdiction; one is being referred to the U.S. Marshals for failure to register as a sex offender as required by federal law;
  • 9 of those arrested had been previously removed from the United States and returned illegally; and,
  • 4 had active Interpol Red Notices.

“The men and women of ICE, through efforts like the one we have completed this week, remain committed to apprehending dangerous criminal aliens who threaten our communities.” said Todd M. Lyons, Acting Field Office Director, ERO Boston.  “ICE officers in New England continue to enforce immigration laws as they have always done, targeting criminal aliens and removing them from our streets. Despite unjustified criticism, our officers continue to work daily with professionalism and integrity to enforce immigration law and protect our communities from criminal aliens.”

In years past, most of these individuals would have been turned over to ICE by local authorities upon their release from jail based on ICE detainers. Since some “ sanctuary jurisdictions” including Boston, do not honor ICE detainers, these individuals, who often have significant criminal histories, are released onto the street, presenting a potential public safety threat.  ICE thus has no alternative but to periodically conduct at-large arrests in local communities instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community.

Arrests include:
•In Lynn, Massachusetts, a 67 year-old national of Brazil who is wanted in Brazil for aggravated murder was arrested.
•In Putnam, Connecticut, a 59-year old national of Brazil who is wanted for murder in Brazil, a crime alleged to have been committed by casting a net over the victim and stabbing the victim 20 times, was arrested.
•In Methuen, Massachusetts, a 23- year old national of the Dominican Republic who had assumed the identity of a U.S. citizen with prior convictions for drug trafficking, identity theft, and resisting arrest, who is facing current pending drug trafficking charges.
•In Brockton, Massachusetts, a 41-year old national of France with previous convictions for cocaine possession and multiple instances of assault and battery whose history also includes 30 adult arraignments with arrests for kidnapping, assault and battery with a deadly weapon, domestic violence and other felony charges.
•In Windham, New Hampshire, a 44 year old national of Brazil wanted in Brazil for smuggling/embezzlement of firearms who had assumed the identity of a U.S. citizen, was arrested.
•In Hyannis, Massachusetts, a 41-year old Jamaican national convicted of possession of 28-100 grams of cocaine was arrested.
•In Dorchester, Massachusetts, a 40 year old national of the Dominican Republic with convictions for cocaine trafficking and money laundering was arrested.

Criminal histories of those arrested during the operation included charges and convictions for: Murder, Aggravated Identity Theft, Assault, Attempted Assault, Cocaine Possession, Cocaine Trafficking, Criminal, DUI and multiple other categories of crimes.

The arrestees include nationals from Dominican Republic, Brazil, France , Jamaica, Haiti and Antigua among other nations.

ICE focuses its enforcement resources on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security. However, ICE no longer exempts classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement. All of those in violation of immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States.

Some of the individuals arrested during this operation will face federal criminal prosecutions for illegal entry and illegal re-entry after deportation. The arrestees who are not being federally prosecuted, are detained in ICE custody, and will be processed administratively for removal from the United States. Any individual that returns to the United States illegally after being deported, is subject to immediate removal from the United States.

ICE places detainers on individuals who have been arrested on local criminal charges and who are suspected of being deportable, so that ICE can take custody of that person when he or she is released from local custody. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission.

In years past, most of these individuals would have been turned over to ICE by local authorities upon their release from jail based on ICE detainers. Since some “ sanctuary jurisdictions” including Boston, do not honor ICE detainers, these individuals, who often have significant criminal histories, are released onto the street, presenting a potential public safety threat.  ICE thus has no alternative but to periodically conduct at-large arrests in local communities instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community.

Ultimately, efforts by local politicians have shielded removable criminal aliens from immigration enforcement and created another magnet for more illegal immigration, all at the expense of the safety and security of the very people it purports to protect.  Despite the severe challenges that local policies have created for ICE, we remain committed to our public safety mission and we will continue to do our sworn duty to seek out dangerous criminal aliens and other immigration violators. ICE seeks straightforward cooperation with all local law enforcement and elected officials.

ICE deportation officers carry out targeted enforcement operations every day in locations around the country as part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to protect the nation, uphold public safety, and protect the integrity of our immigration laws and border controls. These operations involve existing, established fugitive operations teams.

    • Jerry Brown says officer's death not related to Sanctuary City

      It is beyond me how someone can be so idiotic and depraved. And it is beyond me how voters can be represented by someone unless they themselves are truly being represented accurately. Jerry Brown suggests that before the laws surrounding whether local law enforcement could not coordinate, communicate, and work with ICE had gone into effect that ICE could have prevented the officer's murder by an illegal immigrant. Well Jerry, guess your laws will be an obstacle now towards any future prevention of unnecessary murders!   The left suggests that we should not be divided by political lines. Yet what previous Democrats believed on border security no longer fits the left's narrative today. The left is so politically bent and motivated that regardless of what is common sense, moral, or correct automatically is opposed. The left is an opposition that has no other platform other than to oppose the Right.   Jerry Brown: Death of police officer Ronil Singh 'had nothing to do' with California's 'sanctuary' status WWW.WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM Outgoing California Gov. Jerry Brown said the death of police officer Ronil Singh has "nothing" to do with the state's "sanctuary" status.

    • FBI Reveals Record Number Of Illegal Aliens Barred From Buying Guns

      By Jason Hopkins - The FBI released its list of those prohibited from gun purchases in 2018, with illegal aliens topping the list by a landslide. A new report from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System breaks down the number of people blocked from buying guns in 2018. At 7,836,600, the “illegal/unlawful alien” category ranked at the top, beating the second category by nearly 2 million. The “adjudicated mental health” category came in second place with 7,836,600, and convicted criminals rounded the top three with 3,833,213. The active records of those barred from gun purchases have increased over the years. The numbers also highlight the escalating fight over illegal immigration. The federal government is currently under a “shutdown” because President Donald Trump and congressional Democrats are at odds over funding for a proposed wall on the country’s southern border with Mexico. “We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” Trump tweeted Friday. “Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!” The murder of a California police officer on Wednesday by an undocumented immigrant also highlights the personal tragedy associated with illegal alien-related crime. Officer Ronil Singh, 33, was shot and killed at a traffic stop by an illegal alien. Singh leaves behind a wife and baby boy. “He’ll never see his son walk. He doesn’t get to hold that little boy, hug his wife, say ‘good night’ anymore because a coward took his life,” Newman, California, Police Chief Randy Richardson, choking back tears, said to reporters Thursday.

    • 306 Central American IIllegal Aliens Surrender to Border Patrol near Tuscon

      By R. Mitchell - TUCSON, Ariz. – A group of 306 Central Americans surrendered to Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents near the international border Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Large group apprehended in Arizona. On Wednesday, agents from the Ajo Border Patrol Station patrolling on the border 15 miles west of Lukeville found 242 migrants. On Thursday morning, agents from the Casa Grande Station patrolling the border on the Tohono O’odham Nation encountered a group of 64 migrants who gave themselves up. Both groups were comprised of family units, to include juveniles and pregnant women, largely from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. Border Patrol agents conducted an initial screening on site, which consisted of an interview and observation of the detainees to identify any health or safety issues requiring emergency evacuation. The initial screening identified one pregnant woman and four children requiring immediate care. The five subjects were transported to a hospital in Goodyear, treated and released to Ajo Border Patrol Station agents for further processing. Subjects not requiring emergency medical attention were transported to Tucson for further processing and medical evaluation by Border Patrol paramedics. In Tucson, an additional nine children, ages 1 to 13, were identified as having flu-like symptoms and were taken to a local hospital for further treatment.

    • ICE arrests 63 criminal aliens in 4-day Midwest enforcement surge

      By R. Mitchell - MINNEAPOLIS — Federal officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arrested 63 criminal aliens and immigration violators in Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota during a four-day enforcement action, which ended Dec. 4. During this operation, ERO deportation officers made arrests in the following states: Minnesota (22), Iowa (22), Nebraska (14), South Dakota (4) and North Dakota (1). Of the 63 arrested, 47 had criminal convictions. Of the 16 non-criminal arrests, two had outstanding orders of removal, and four had been previously removed. Three women and 60 men were arrested. Aliens arrested during this operation are from the following nine countries:  Mexico (36), Guatemala (13), Honduras (4), El Salvador (2), Somalia (2), and one each from Burma, Ethiopia, Ecuador, Gambia, Liberia and Ukraine. Seventy-five percent of the aliens arrested by ERO deportation officers during this operation had prior criminal histories that included convictions for the following crimes: assault, domestic violence, larceny, child abuse, child neglect, drug-related crimes including distribution, fraud, hit and run, prostitution, driving under the influence. Additionally, one violator in Nebraska was a known gang member. Seven of those arrested were immigration fugitives; 16 others illegally re-entered the United States after having been previously deported, which is a felony.  Depending on an alien’s criminality, an alien who re-enters the United States after having been previously deported commits a felony punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison, if convicted. Following are criminal summaries of three offenders arrested during this operation: Nov. 30 — ICE arrested a 65-year-old Mexican man in Lexington, Nebraska.  He was previously convicted of two felony counts of sexual assault. He remains in ICE custody pending removal proceedings. Nov. 30 — In Lexington, ICE arrested a 39-year-old citizen of Somalia. He was previously convicted of felony sexual assault.  He will remain in ICE custody pending removal proceedings. Dec. 4 — ICE arrested a 32-year-old citizen of Mexico, in Kearney, Nebraska. He was previously convicted of false identification to a peace officer.  He is also a documented member of the MS-13 street gang.  He will remain in ICE custody pending removal proceedings. “This operation targeted criminal aliens, public safety threats, and individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws,” said Pete Berg, field office director for ICE ERO St. Paul. “Operations like this reflect the vital work our ERO officers do every day to protect our communities, uphold public safety and protect the integrity of our immigration laws.  We will continue working with our community law enforcement agencies in order to protect citizens and enforce immigration law.” All of the targets in this operation were amenable to arrest and removal under the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act. ICE deportation officers carry out targeted enforcement operations daily nationwide as part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to protect the nation, uphold public safety, and protect the integrity of our immigration laws and border controls. These operations involve existing and established Fugitive Operations Teams. During targeted enforcement operations, ICE officers frequently encounter other aliens illegally present in the United States.  These aliens are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and, when appropriate, they are arrested by ICE officers.

    • United States Takes Action To Confront Illegal Immigration

      By R. Mitchell - Today the United States Government announced historic action to confront the illegal immigration crisis facing the United States. The Trump administration notified the Government of Mexico that the United States is invoking Section 235(b)(2)(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act immediately. Individuals arriving in the United States from Mexico—illegally or without proper documentation—will be returned to Mexico for the duration of their immigration proceedings. The Mexican government has assured Trump officials that it will afford affected migrants visas to stay on Mexican soil, apply for work, and other benefits while they await U.S. proceedings. The move will effectively end catch-and-release where illegal immigrants that request asylum after being caught entering the country illegally, would be released into the United States pending legal proceedings. The caught and released aliens rarely showed up for their hearings and disappeared into the shadows of the illegal alien community within the United States. Source: U.S. Department of State
