“This operation targeted criminal aliens, public safety threats, and individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws. 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 and border controls. We will continue to devote the full efforts of our agency to protecting citizens and enforcing federal immigration law. Communities across the upper Midwest are safer today because of the hard work of the men and women of ERO.” ~ Peter Berg, field office director for ICE ERO
As you can see, these illegal aliens are nothing but scumbags that do not offer anything to society. We need to continue to cleanse out the illegal alien criminals and send them back to their “home” nations.
Our national security is vital and our borders are an extreme weakness at the moment, it is time to acknowledge the urgent threat and shut it down and shut it down now!
