Guest post by Aleister at American Lookout:
Trump promised to arrest and deport illegal immigrants who are criminals and he’s keeping that promise. In fact, the number of people targeted by ICE went up by a stunning percentage in the last week.

The Washington Examiner reports:
Arrests of illegal criminals jumps 250% in one week
As promised, immigration police have expanded their campaign to deport illegals with criminal records, announcing the seizure of 368 illegals in seven states and Washington, D.C.
That nearly a 250 percent increase over the 106 announced a week earlier.
The biggest seizures by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were in Texas, but they made arrests as far north as Wyoming.
What’s more, they targeted members of the violent MS-13 gang and illegals charged with sex crimes against kids.
In one five-day campaign around Virginia and Washington, 82 illegals from 26 countries were arrested.
Of course, Democrats are against all of this. Breitbart reports:
Dems Push Ban on ICE from Courthouses
A new Democrat-sponsored bill would ban federal immigration officials from arresting illegal immigrants at designated areas like courthouses.
The Protecting Sensitive Locations Act by Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR), Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), Rep. José Serrano (D-NY), and Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA) would essentially make it impossible for Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to arrest illegal immigrants at courthouses, as well as medical, educational, and religious facilities.
Why do Democrats care more about illegals than American citizens?
