January 4, 2011 – Florida – A recent effort to locate and arrest illegal immigrants with criminal records proved successful for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers who rounded up 95 individuals in Florida.
Reports from NBC Miami confirm that of the 95 arrests, 85 men and 10 women, 46 of them came from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. One of the 25 Miami-Dade arrests was a Dominican Republic native residing illegally in Miami Lakes with convictions for second-degree attempted murder, child abuse and burglary with assault.
Broward County had similar stories within the 8 criminals arrested there and Palm Beach turned up 13 more illegal immigrants with charges of violent criminal acts, sex offenses and drug trafficking. Those arrested come from a wide span of regions, including Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe.
According to the Miami field office director, Marc Moore, the recent crackdown is part of a push for punishment and deportation for those who illegally come to the United States and commit crimes against citizens.
