Illegal Indian Immigrants To USA Detained

 The US border patrol and immigration officials detained over 100 people, including some Indians. This was part of separate enforcement actions for illegally entering and living in the country.

Federal Officers arrested 45 people in the Houston area for violating US immigration laws by. The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) is on a five-day enforcement action plan.

The agency did not give the total number of Indian nationals arrested during the operation.

Individuals arrested during this operation included nationals from Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala, Argentina, Cuba, Nigeria, India, Chile and Turkey, ICE said in a statement.

The local enforcement operation targeted at-large criminal aliens, many of whom had absconded from prior immigration proceedings, it said.

The agency said some of the individuals arrested during the operation will face federal criminal prosecution for illegal entry and illegal re-entry after deportation.

Arrestees not being federally prosecuted, will be detained in ICE custody and administratively processed for removal from the US, it said.

Separately, US Border Patrol agents discovered 78 illegal aliens inside a locked refrigerated trailer at a checkpoint in Texas last week.

The illegal people were found in good health and identified as being from the countries of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Brazil, Ecuador, India and Dominican Republic.

“These criminal organisations continue to use tractor trailers and view these individuals as mere commodities without regard for their safety.

“Zero tolerance enforced towards the blatant disregard for human life. We  continue to work with our law enforcement partners. We intend to disrupt and dismantle these organisations and prosecute those responsible.”

Laredo Sector, Acting Chief Patrol Agent Jason Owens made these comments.

Furthermore, nearly 100 Indians, mostly from Punjab, were detained at two immigration detention centres.  They had illegally entered the US through its southern border.

President Donald Trump had reversed his controversial decision on immigration. He has signed an executive order to end the separation of immigrant families on the US-Mexico border.  This came after widespread protests against  his administration’s move to separate children from their parents who illegally enter the country.
