Largest ICE Raid During COVID-19 Pandemic Leads to 2,000+ Arrests

A six-week ICE operation netted more than 2,000 arrests of undocumented immigrants, most of whom have been charged or convicted of a crime.

The operation, which ran from July to August, led to arrests in communities across the country, CBS News reports.

About 85% of those arrested had been charged or convicted of crimes ranging from domestic abuse to robbery. Those without criminal charges involved immigrants who did not leave the country after a judge ordered them to be deported.

It was the largest operation since the coronavirus pandemic.

ICE has limited its operations amid COVID-19 to avoid outbreaks among detainees. ICE arrested 94,500 arrests inside communities in this fiscal year, as of Aug. 22. During the same time period last year, ICE arrested more than 143,000 people.

The Justice Department is expected to soon charge former Donald Trump fundraiser Elliot Broidy on allegations that he sought to help foreign interests gain influence from the U.S. government, The Washington Post reports.

Broidy, a longtime GOP fundraiser who helped Trump’s presidential campaign raise million of dollars, could be days away from a plea deal.

Part of the years-long investigation includes allegations that he played a role in urging the Trump administration to stop investigating a Malaysian government corruption case and help extradite a Chinese dissident back to his home country.

On Monday, one of Broidy’s business associates, Nickie Mali Lum Davis, pleaded guilty for her role in a “back-channel lobbying campaign” involving the Malaysian government and Chinese dissident Duo Wengui.

The Justice Department and an attorney for Broidy declined to comment.
