ICE arrests of illegal immigrants climb by 38 percent

U.S. immigration officials arrested more than 41,000 suspected illegal immigrants during the first 100 days of the Donald Trump presidency, an increase of nearly 38 percent over the same period the previous year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials announced Wednesday.

The six New England states actually experienced a larger percentage increase during the benchmark period; 610 were detained, up 58 percent from the same period the previous year.

ICE announced the number of arrests that coincided with Trump’s first 100 days and noted they are following one of his first executive orders dealing with enforcement of immigration laws.

President Barack Obama had said ICE should concentrate on illegal aliens who committed crimes.

Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly has said that ICE will no longer exempt any class of individuals from removal proceedings if they are found to be in the country illegally.

‘Most wanted’ arrests secured county’s place in FBI history

The Oregon Trail brought settlers West to start new lives in Washington County. Some were seeking adventure and free land, while others were escaping disease, unhappy marriages or criminal pasts.

That dream of starting anew continued to lure people West for 100 years, even after the ruts of the old wagon trail from Missouri to Oregon were paved over and V-8 horsepower replaced mules and oxen.
