House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi today attacked the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency for arresting more than 150 illegal aliens in Northern California whom Pelosi described as “hard-working, law-abiding” and “patriotic.”
San Francisco, where Pelosi’s congressional district is located, is a “sanctuary city” that will not cooperate with the federal government in the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws.
“Since Sunday, ICE deportation officers have arrested more than 150 individuals who are in violation of federal U.S. immigration laws, working on leads developed by the local field office in conjunction with the National Criminal Analysis and Targeting Center (NCATC),” ICE said in a statement released Tuesday.
“About half of the individuals arrested also have criminal convictions in addition to their immigration violations, including convictions for assault/battery, crimes against children, weapons charges and DUI,” ICE said.
Pelosi described ICE’s enforcement of the immigration law in her region of the country as a “shocking abuse of law enforcement power.”
“The Trump Administration’s raids were a shocking abuse of law enforcement power,” she said in a statement released today. “Yet again, the White House has reached into our communities to indiscriminately detain scores of hard-working, law-abiding immigrants.”
