Immigration and Customs Enforcement is not taking time off as 2021 is about to begin.  On December 30, ICE announced that it had

"arrested 18 foreign nationals sought for their roles in known or suspected human rights violations or human smuggling and trafficking during a nationwide operation which concluded on Dec. 17.


Since 2014, ICE successfully effectuated five No Safe Haven operations targeting known and suspected human rights violators. This year’s Operation No Safe Haven Plus lent support to additionally advance the agency's ongoing commitment to locate fugitives both affiliated with human smuggling or trafficking and subject to final orders of removal.

The foreign nationals arrested during this operation all have outstanding removal orders and are subject to repatriation to their countries of origin. . . . "
