Immigration officers based in New York City arrested 42 criminal aliens released by sanctuary jurisdictions. Thirteen other foreign nationals were also arrested as part of a six-day targeted operation carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations officers began the operation on November 13 and concluded it shortly before Thanksgiving. In total, officers arrested 55 illegal aliens. Forty-two of those arrested had been in New York law enforcement custody and were released despite ICE having placed immigration detainers on the aliens, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas from ICE officials.

“Forty-two of the 55 arrested during this operation were released from New York custody with an active detainer, which poses an increased risk to the officers and the community.,” ERO New York Field Office Director Thomas Decker said in a written statement. “It is important for city residents to know that although the City of New York releases inmates with active ICE detainers back into their community, ICE will be diligent in its responsibility to find those who come to the United States to prey upon our communities and ultimately have them removed from the country.”

Official said those arrested include nine women and 46 men. They illegal aliens hailed from 22 countries. Those countries include: Mexico (20); Jamaica (5), Ecuador (4), Honduras (3), Colombia (2), Dominican Republic (2), El Salvador (2), Guatemala (2), Yemen (2), Bangladesh (1), France (1), Guyana (1), Jordan (1), Nigeria (1), Poland (1), Romania (1), Slovakia (1), Spain (1), Trinidad (1), Yemen (1), Serbia (1), Egypt (1).
