Immigration and Customs Enforcement made the first round of arrests for a planned immigration enforcement operation in the first week of October, arresting 128 individuals present in the country illegally. The agency made the arrest in a variety of California “sanctuary cities,” which flout federal immigration law and deny any cooperation with federal law enforcement in arresting criminal aliens.
The first round of immigration raids, which took place on the five days preceding October 2nd, have been designated as “Operation Rise.”
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf confirmed that 96% of the illegal alien arrestees had either pending or adjudicated convictions, some of which included homicide, sexual assault, and sex crimes against children.
Thanks to the men and women of @ICEgov, Operation Rise was a stunning success. In just five days, our officers in California arrested 128 illegal aliens wanted for some of the most heinous crimes imaginable. pic.twitter.com/box970Cve4

“These are not everyday people,” said Wolf of the felons arrested in the immigration enforcement operation. “These are hardened criminals who threaten American communities and put American lives at risk.” Wolf went on to restate that the Department of Homeland Security would continue to enforce federal immigration law- with the cooperation of liberal city, county and state authorities, or not.
Immigration enforcement operations are also planned for Denver, Colorado, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two other notorious sanctuary jurisdictions known for their defiance of federal immigration law.
California Democrats expressed their disappointment to see illegal alien felons arrested, knowing they’re very likely to be deported after they’re processed by the immigration court system. Democrat Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren called Operation Rise “just a bunch of political posturing on the part of the Trump administration. They hope to salvage the election.”
ICE is continuing its longstanding practice of prioritizing convicted felons in immigration enforcement activity, but it’s not enough to merely go after aliens who are convicted of additional violent felonies. The agency recently confirmed that it would resume its standard practices of apprehension and deportation for all illegal aliens, not just the worst of the worst.
Texas Republican Chairman Allen West Calls on Texans to Reject Democrats’ Radical Open Borders Agenda
No one in Texas should vote Democrat.
Since assuming the position of Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas earlier this year, retired Army Lieutenant Army Colonel Allen West has made his presence felt in Texas politics.
Unlike the flaccid political leadership that preceded him, West is outspoken about Democrats’ radical open borders agenda.
He tweeted on October 21, 2020, “No one in Texas should vote Democrat. It is the party of open borders, decriminalizing illegal border crossing, sanctuary cities for illegals, abolishing ICE, which allows criminal illegal immigrants, along w/human&sex trafficking, to operate freely.”

In his tweet, he shared a link to a Fox News article titled “Border Patrol arrests nearly 300 illegal immigrants in 18 hours.”
This story referred to an incident where U.S. Border Patrol agents in Texas teamed up with local law enforcement to arrest approximately 300 suspected illegal aliens during an 18-hour window last week, as reported by law enforcement.
Agents raided and closed down stash houses in addition to busting suspected smuggling attempts in four separate incidents that saw a total of 294 individuals apprehended for making an attempt to sneak into the U.S.
According to the law enforcement account of the situation, at least 90 of the people placed in custody came from countries outside of Mexico.
“In all of the incidents, none of the individuals were wearing any personal protective equipment,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recounted. “These callous and dangerous acts are several examples of the lack of regard human smugglers have for those they exploit for profit.”
The Texas GOP scored a big win by choosing Allen West as its leader. After years of disappointment on issues such as Constitutional Carry, the Texas GOP is in need of a major facelift when it comes to its political leadership. Thanks to how competitive Texas has become, the GOP must come on point during election season. This means that it must have its most energetic members on board from the start. And it could do so by having a leader that talks about hot button issues such as guns and putting the clamps on mass migration.
