The only person arrested without a criminal record, Kice said, was a Mexican national who had been previously deported and illegally re-entered the U.S. He will go before an immigration judge.

The effort focused on "at-large criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants, and immigration fugitives" who were considered threats to public safety, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a news release.

More than 180 people were arrested over the 10-day multi-state operation, which was spread across West Virginia, Pennsylvania and DE, according to a release from ICE. Other criminal convictions listed on the ICE statement include drug offenses, domestic violence, DUI, sex crimes, battery, weapons violations, assault, burglary, fraud, vehicle theft, arson, cruelty to a child, robbery, obstructing justice, property damage, larceny, escape, manslaughter, prostitution, trespassing, incest, receipt of stolen property and illegal re-entry/entry. Forty-three of the arrested individuals had drug offense convictions, and another 30 had been convicted for driving under the influence.

"These statistics reflect President Trump's commitment to enforce our immigration laws fairly and across the board", ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan said in the report. The vast majority of those detained were men and more than 75 percent came from Mexico.

While Kelly told NBC's "Meet the Press" earlier this year that "illegally doesn't necessarily get you targeted, it's got to be something else", ICE does not only arrest immigrants that they specifically target. For instance, ICE agents can now arrest other individuals they happen to encounter during a raid.

Los Angeles County represented the largest number detained at 93, while Riverside County had 26, Orange, 23, San Bernardino, 21 and Ventura, 14.

U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order in January making undocumented immigrants with pending criminal cases priorities for deportation, whether they have been found guilty or not. “Hes been a valued member of his family and community for decades and they seem to be going after people for a conviction thats as old as 1992.”.

The militants called for reinforcements from Maute, a group allied to IS, and some 50 gunmen managed to enter the city of Marawi. Troops found homemade bombs, grenades, combat uniforms and passports of suspected Indonesian militants in the camp.

At least eight people arrested now face federal prosecution for re-entry after deportation, which is a felony and is punishable by up to 20 years in prison, officials said.

Most of the arrests took place in the Los Angeles area.

Anyone not being criminally prosecuted will be processed for deportation, ICE officials said.
