35 Arrested in Trump's 'Operation Border Resolve'

35 Arrested in Trump's 'Operation Border Resolve' The operation was touted by President Donald Trump as an effort to deport "millions" of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.

2,100 of the close to 1 million people in the U.S. who have been issued final deportation orders were targeted, specifically.

ICE officials contend that none of the arrests led to a separation of families.

While the raids have been politically divisive, ICE maintains that they are routine.

ICE raids that targeted undocumented immigrants with criminal records led to the arrests of 899 people, over the course of two months.

In addition, ICE issued 3,282 notices of inspection to businesses, informing them of an audit to be conducted on their hiring records.

ICE acting director Matthew Albence said the "silents raids" are meant to "reduce economic opportunities" for those in the U.S. illegally.
