Deporting these people and many more will be a great community service.
Immigration agents swooped on a group of men carrying out community service in Fort Worth, Texas and arrested 26 illegal immigrants who were out on parole.
Yesterday’s operation was one of the biggest carried out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in north Texas. Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn said those arrested had been convicted of a range of low-level felonies and high-level misdemeanors and had been released from jail by mistake.
But Juan Herrera, whose brother Jaime was one of those detained, said they were actually punishing those who were trying to do the right thing and bothered to turn up for their community service.
He told NBC: ‘It’s kind of weird, because the people who don’t do it, still outside and the people who try to be straight and pay all the money back and everything, that’s what happened.’
