“US authorities detain hundreds in immigration raids”
Summary: The ICE agency conducted a series of immigration sweeps across Atlanta, New York, Chicago, LA, and other areas. Authorities claim that they are simply enforcing laws and conducting routine sweeps against immigrants that are in the country illegally of have criminal records- no different than what was enforced under President Obama. The new executive order makes any illegal immigrant living in the US a priority for deportation, and these would include legal immigrants who had been convicted of a criminal offense. These arrests could signal the start of a more aggressive enforcement.
