The Dems are always going about how we need to abolish ICE. They demonize ICE making all sorts of ludicrous claims. In a recent bust, Homeland Security and ICE worked together and were able to make a dent in the arms trading of the transnational criminal organization. Proving once again how useful and necessary the organization is.
“MIAMI – Matthew T. Albence, deputy director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and Anthony Salisbury, special agent in charge of ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Miami, announced the results of an international weapons trafficking operation with law enforcement partners in Argentina and Brazil.
The international operation resulted in a total of 25 arrests and 53 search warrants executed in three countries. Over the course of the operation, law enforcement seized 5,300 firearms and components, 167 explosives/ordinances and 15 silencers from the transnational criminal organization (TCO).
HSI Miami initiated the investigation into the TCO smuggling large quantities of weapons parts and accessories from the U.S. to Argentina and Brazil. The TCO exploited the U.S. Postal Service by illegally exporting weapon parts and ammunition regulated by the International Trafficking in Arms Regulations without the proper State Department licenses. Since the inception of this investigation, several HSI offices, as well as Argentinian and Brazilian authorities have conducted multiple search warrants and arrests netting significant quantities of firearms, firearms parts and more than $100,000 in cash.”
This arms bust is huge it will save an almost immeasurable number of people.
ICE has most recently been in the news with Trump’s announcement that they will be doing mass deportation of migrants. They were going to the mass deportation in June but instead, Trump gave Congress a chance to step up and do their jobs.
