imagesTwo Belizeans were arrested this past week in Los Angeles, California as part of an operation carried out by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) targeting criminal foreigners.


According to a report on US news “Los Angeles Time” a total of 112 foreign immigrants were arrested in the operation of which 100 were men and 12 women with criminal histories ranging from violent crimes such as child sex crimes and assault to significant or multiple misdemeanors.


The largest number of those taken into custody were from Mexico with a total of 89, but nationals from a total of 11 countries were detained, including seven from El Salvador; five Guatemalans ; two Belizeans, two from Honduras, two from Vietnam ; one from Egypt; one from the Philippines ; one from Tonga, one from the United Kingdom; and one from Azerbaijan.


Although everyone who was arrested is subject to deportation under federal law for their previous crimes, most were released back into the country after serving their past sentence because of a state law that took effect in January 2014.


All of the targets in the operation met the US Department of Homeland Security’s two top immigration enforcement priorities. Priority 1 targets include threats to national security, criminal street gang members, convicted felons, and aggravated felons. Priority 2 targets include convictions for three or more misdemeanors or convictions for significant misdemeanors.
