ICE: Raid reports fake news, Obama grabbed 350% more – Washington Examiner
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is pushing back hard on media reports that President Trump has unleashed a mean-spirited national raid on immigrants, noting that it rounded up over 350 percent more during one sweep under former President Obama.
In a series of tweets, ICE called the reports, in the Washington Post and elsewhere, “dangerous and irresponsible.”
The agency this week said that had made 683 arrests of mostly criminal illegal immigrants, or those with multiple cases against them beyond illegally crossing the border.
In the future, I wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised if Trump does wind up ordering far more ICE raids than Obama ever did. In fact, I’d be surprised if he didn’t. But currently, that’s not the case and it shows again how the Fake News Media lies and misleads consistently, especially on hot-button issues. In response to the recent ICE raids, there were numerous articles in the FNM to whip up fear and hysteria in the illegal immigrant communities.
