ICE arrests 162 in Los Angeles-area operation, including two Filipinos
CALIFORNIA — Immigration officials have rounded up two Philippine nationals in its latest operations.
ICE has announced that they have arrested 162 immigrants in several Southern California counties.
Two Filipinos were among those arrested.
This series of arrests lasted throughout a three-day span from last Sunday through Tuesday.
In a press release, ICE said these arrests were targeted towards “at-large criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants and immigration fugitives, and aliens released back into the community after detainers filed by ICE with local law enforcement officials were ignored.”
No details of the Filipinos have been made available.
Local Filipino immigrant rights groups are working with the Philippine consulate to learn more about these detainees.
