ICE raids in Rhode Island

The Boston Globe reported that ICE arrested 42 persons in Rhode Island in an operation targeting "fugitive" immigrants; that is, persons who did not comply with their removal orders.  Click here for story.

The Absconder Apprehension Initiative was established, making the apprehension of absconders, or fugitives, a priority within the Department of Homeland Security.

According to 2007 ICE statistics, ICE eliminated more than 100,000 fugitive alien cases and reduced the backlog of fugitive cases for the first time in history.
