Sanctuary Mayhem: ICE Shuts Down Liberal Paradise… Arrests Hundreds of Illegals

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement crackdown on sanctuary cities has netted hundreds of illegal immigrants nationwide, including a number in Southern California.

According to CNBC, ICE announced Friday that 212 illegals have been arrested as part of a five-day sweep in the Los Angeles area which has seen 122 businesses targeted.

A similar raid in Northern California, including arrests in San Jose and San Francisco, happened just days beforehand.

Overall, according to the Los Angeles Times, over 500 people have been arrested and detained by ICE nationwide in the period of several days.

Experts say that the arrests seem to signal a willingness by federal authorities to do battle with the liberal paradise of California, which has passed a so-called “sanctuary state” law.

The legislation effectively stops local authorities from working with federal officials on immigration cases and makes it illegal for businesses to voluntarily pass on employee information — including immigration status — to the federal government. Businesses who violate the law are subject to a $10,000 fine.

“This seems to be a battle between California as a state and the federal government,” Angelo Paparelli, an immigration attorney with Seyfarth Shaw in Los Angeles, told CNBC.
