ICE has not stopped the raids, but they assure that they are focused on the undocumented with criminal offenses, not on their mere immigration status. However, ICE does not exempt removable immigrant classes or categories from possible enforcement.

All those who violate immigration law may be subject to arrest, detention and, if it is determined that they can be removed by final order, deportation from the United States. ICE takes many factors into account when attacking and arresting people, including their criminal and immigration history.
