After President Trump has authenticated the executive order that has people from all around the globe talking about, around 600 people have been reportedly arrested by Immigration Agents.

Agents Orchestrated Immigration Raids In At Least Six States

After the executive order aiming to limit the entry of foreign travelers from at least seven Muslim countries have been signed, raids within the state have been enforced leading to the arrest of at least 600 people from around 11 states and impending 40 people in the state of New York City.

"The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!" President Trump posted on his Twitter timeline pertaining to the continuous actions his administration is taking.

Trump Administration Promised To Deport More Than 3 Million Undocumented Immigrants With Criminal Records

As soon as the Executive Order was implemented by the administration U.S. Immigration Agents have arrested hundreds of Illegal Immigrants living in the states (both with criminal records, minor offenses as well as those who weren't convicted at all)

Federal Agents have tracked down at least 11 Million undocumented Immigrants living in the U.S. hence, raids were implemented. The implementation is also how the administration is keeping up to their pledge to deport at least 3 Million illegal immigrants.

Immigration officials have verified that homes, as well as workplaces from states such as North Carolina and South Carolina, Atlanta, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles area, have undergone raids over the past few days.

"We're talking about people who are threats to public safety or a threat to the integrity of the immigration system," Gillian Christensen stated. Gillian, spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security also declared that ICE or the 'Immigration and Customs Enforcement doesn't agree with the term "raid" for they would opt for "targeted enforcement actions".

Although the process is approved by the administration, the Immigration Customs and Enforcement raids have gone beyond the demarcation line, according to protesters by implementing massive raids over the past two days in states such as Texas, Florida, Northern Virginia and Kansas.
