Believe it or not, according to this AOL story, the Obama administration is and has been cracking down on certain illegal immigrants.
WASHINGTON (AP) – More than 600 suspected gang members have been arrested in the Homeland Security Department’s largest crackdown on street gangs, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Thursday.
ICE agents, along with local authorities in 179 cities, arrested 638 suspected gang members over a monthlong period in March and April.
The latest crackdown, dubbed “Project Southbound,” is part of a larger initiative started in 2005 to target street gangs with international ties. Since the effort, ICE says it has arrested more than 33,000 suspected gang members.
33,000 suspected gang members arrested since 2005. It’s probably safe to assume that 33,000 is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. So, here is a quaint thought. Wouldn’t it be less costly and more efficient to control our borders? As an added bonus, it would improve the safety of American citizens at the same time. I don’t know, fol;ks, but it seems like a no-brainer to me.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
