A leaked ICE memo says some 40 people were arrested in the city, which coincided with similar ICE actions across the country, PIX11-TV reported. "As it is part of a criminal investigation pending federal prosecution, we can not release further details". He said 75 percent of those arrested were criminals, some of whom had been convicted of homicide and aggravated sexual assault. Others will be moved through the legal process of being deported from the country.
The Trump administration has also said that in deporting people in the country illegally, the focus is on threats to "national security and public safety".
The Homeland Security secretary called the focus of the recent raids, which resulted in the arrests of almost 700 undocumented immigrants, "consistent with the routine, targeted arrests carried out by ICE's Fugitive Operations teams on a daily basis".
ICE officials said the operations did not include arrests in Florida. He said the focus of the recent raids was on risky criminals, but said it also included anyone who had broken immigration laws. But President Donald Trump tweeted that the "crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise".
ICE said of the almost 200 people arrested during raids across Georgia and the Carolinas, about two-thirds of them had criminal charges.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said Monday he will ask ICE for more information about the arrests - including the locations and more details about the people detained - and called reports that ICE targeted non-violent immigrant families "deeply disturbing".
Last week, ICE agents arrested 680 people in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, San Antonio and New York City. Apparently, the series of raids that were launched marked the first sweeping enforcement of President Trump's January 25 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.
