ICE fails to make arrests in early NYC raids

(Breitbart) The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reportedly attempted raids in New York City on Saturday, but no arrests were made.

According to the New York Daily News, federal agents conducted the operation in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park, where they rang multiple doorbells in an apartment building but later left without taking any illegal aliens into custody. The Wall Street Journal reports that agents were turned away because they showed up without warrants. A similar situation occurred in Harlem, the Journal states.

“As they were leaving, we heard them say, ‘We’ll be back,’” one woman from Sunset Park told the Daily News.

Asked for comment by the Journal, an ICE representative said: “As always, ICE prioritizes the arrest and removal of unlawfully present aliens who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security.”
