Two Filipinos deported under Trump administration
In the Pacific Northwest, two undocumented Filipinos were arrested — along with 82 others — during a three day operation by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.
The massive raids, which were conducted in Alaska, Oregon and Washington, targeted at large criminal aliens, undocumented re-entrants and immigration fugitives — according to ICE.
Immigration officials say of the more than 80 arrested — 60 had criminal histories, including prior convictions for sex crimes, drug offenses and domestic violence.
The most common criminal convictions for these arrested undocumented immigrants: driving under the influence.
The biggest number of arrestees came from Mexico, with 64. Two were arrested from the Philippines, according to ICE.
So far, BA has found three undocumented Filipinos who were arrested for deportation under the Trump administration.
Aside from the recent two arrests in the Pacific Northwest, ICE agents also rounded up a kababayan — Rey Galleon — from Southern California on March 17.
Galleon’s wife, who is also undocumented, voluntarily went back to the Philippines after her husband’s deportation.
