Two Filipinos deported under Trump administration

In the Pacific Northwest, two undocumented Filipinos were arrested — along with 82 others — during a three day operation by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

The massive raids, which were conducted in Alaska, Oregon and Washington, targeted at large criminal aliens, undocumented re-entrants and immigration fugitives — according to ICE.

Immigration officials say of the more than 80 arrested — 60 had criminal histories, including prior convictions for sex crimes, drug offenses and domestic violence.

The most common criminal convictions for these arrested undocumented immigrants: driving under the influence.

The biggest number of arrestees came from Mexico, with 64. Two were arrested from the Philippines, according to ICE.

So far, BA has found three undocumented Filipinos who were arrested for deportation under the Trump administration.

Aside from the recent two arrests in the Pacific Northwest, ICE agents also rounded up a kababayan — Rey Galleon — from Southern California on March 17.

Galleon’s wife, who is also undocumented, voluntarily went back to the Philippines after her husband’s deportation.

    If you are illegal alien go back home and do not wait until you are deported.Once you are deported it will be hard or you don’t have chance to come back into the US again.More Filipino illegal alien will be deported soon..As illegal alien and you don’t have enough money, an immigration lawyer will never fight for you.I love it when BA wrote, Filipino deported under Trump Administration. It mean that Trump complied with his campaign promises. Trump won the election because American voters supported his immigration policies.Even though how much you blame/hate Trump on immigration he will be the POTUS for the next 4-8 years.

      Mario, you are 100% right, yes all illegal Filipinos in America better to go back to the Philippines, than get caught by ICE. I have a friend that was caught about 8 years ago under Obama watch, and was deported back to the Philippines, and was told by a American judge that he can try to come back in to America in 10 years. So if you are illegal and isn’t caught yet by ICE, best to go back to the Philippines right away, so you can try to come back to America the right way and not wait for 10 years if you get caught illegal.

        Again, your opinion is as useless as your existence on this planet.
