Massive Illegal Immigration Crackdown Sees Arrests Locally

The six-day "Cross Check'' operation, which ended Thursday, was the largest of its kind, and involved more than 1,900 ICE officers and agents, along with personnel from federal, state and local law enforcement organizations.

Federal agents arrested 206 immigration fugitives and convicted illegal immigrants in Southern California as part of a nationwide sweep that netted more than 3,100 arrests, officials said today.

"The results of this targeted enforcement operation underscore ICE's ongoing commitment and focus on the arrest and removal of convicted criminal aliens and those that game our nation's immigration system,'' said Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton.

The six-day "Cross Check'' operation, which ended Thursday, was the largest of its kind, and involved more than 1,900 ICE officers and agents, along with personnel from federal, state and local law enforcement organizations, according to ICE. Arrests occurred in all 50 states, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, three U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.

Of the 206 people arrested in Southern California, 106 had prior convictions for serious or violent crimes. There were 124 arrests in Los Angeles County, 34 in Orange County, 15 in Riverside County, 14 in San Bernardino County, 10 in Ventura County and nine in Santa Barbara County.

More than 70 of the local arrestees have already been removed from the country, according to officials.

Among the local arrestees were:

-- Veasna Uy, 34, a Cambodia national immigration fugitive living in Long Beach. Uy, who was convicted in April 2000 of manslaughter, attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, remains in ICE custody pending removal from the country.

-- A twice-deported 43-year-old Mexican national living in Bell who has two prior convictions for possession of narcotics for sale. He has been turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service pending prosecution for felony re-entry after deportation.

-- A 42-year-old Salvadoran national living in North Hollywood who was convicted in 1994 of arson and sentenced to a year in jail. He was being held by ICE without bond pending a hearing before an immigration judge.

Yeah, Martha would be a great addition to Lake Elsinore and a welcomed addition. People have good and bad qualities depending on what side of the fence they are on.
Vince April 14, 2012 at 10:03 PM
LBV...I didn't reference it, but MAYBE it is "Monday's"? Heck, I grew up in the 60's, and they was tough on me I have found in later years'!! That lil' girl sure has her a big voice though, and sadly, she checked out much too soon...
Roberto April 14, 2012 at 10:46 PM
Yep, W'ell take Martha, I don't agree with her CEQA attack but at least she has the balls to get out there. I'm sure she would do a lot more than some of those who open there pieholes on da blog but are nothing but sycophants to the likes of Melendez.
Roberto April 14, 2012 at 10:59 PM
* what I really meant to say is a bunch of Menlendez Butt kissers....sorry for the confusion :)
Vince April 14, 2012 at 11:23 PM
LBV...couldn't resist, fetched this up for ya, and it is MONDAY's: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPmbT5XC-q0
LBV Collins April 14, 2012 at 11:39 PM
LOL! Thanks Vince. Yep, that song takes me back to my early teens. It really was a tragedy that she died prematurely. She was only 32.

Do you think that ridding the City of Melendez is going to make everything right..hmmm Genie Kelley was so involved in the Stadium scam and the McVicker Skate Park rip off and yet you all speak of her as she is golden. Melendez is bold, does what she wants and says what she wants and she surfaces the crap that actually go's on in this townn and in City Hall, right in your face and she doesn't care weather you like it or not. I am afraid that her boldness is what you all are afraid of, she is in your face, and how do you like me now!!!!!! People don't like that!!! So therefore she is you enemy, this town needs more people in City Hall that tells you like it is and doesn't give a flying rip if you like it or not. I like her, she has balls!!

You can rest assured that this is Obama's Double Naught Spy Secret Decoder Ring (See: Jethro Bodine) call to illegal alien's to get out and register, and to vote for him: http://www.grouchyconservativepundits.org/index.php?topic=44008.new And so they will...
Vince April 16, 2012 at 07:04 PM
Just ran into this: Banking Cartel Supports Romney #1, Obama #2. The Banking Cartel will be happy with keeping their puppet Obama, or even happier replacing him with Romney. If the banking Cartel wants Romney or Obama, the media cartel will be used to promote both of these in the end, because the bankers own the media. This was accurately reported by Cenk Uygur a couple of weeks ago, noting that the bankers have given Obama $3.9 million, and Romney $7.5 million: "No matter where you turn, those guys [financial sector] have already bought both sides." - *** And those campaign donation's are months old, and above board...One can only imagine how much more has been piled on UNDER the radar. Ron Paul got some financial supprt from The Banker's also...gotta cover all sides, and hedge their bets! Of course, just like when they have supported wars that they pretty much instigated, they do shed MORE cash onto the entity they want to win... After running into this tidbit, jes' MAYBE Obama is NOT The Golden Child I thunked he was--I'm gonna have to some followup, with more digging.
Vince April 16, 2012 at 07:18 PM
As I have figured for a spell, and maybe even noted it hereabouts, but: Those who own and maintain THE MACHINES will have a BIG say in the coming election: Now, guess what, Wisconsin is shaping up to be THE swing state in the 2012 presidential elections. Not Florida . Not Ohio . But Wisconsin . Now, guess who owns the company that will be tabulating the electronic votes in Wisconsin? The biggest contributor to Obama, George Soros. Whaaaaaaaaaaaat a coincidence! Now remember what Stalin said: "He who votes does not have the power. He who counts the votes has the power". **** Again, Soros is the Point Man for those who own The President...yet he is but a bit player, and NOT That Guy---so whomever is chosen, mayhaps he will insure that it comes into being, in Wisconsin anyways...
Diana April 16, 2012 at 11:30 PM
So is it just me or is everyones posting waiting for approval???

Tonto April 17, 2012 at 12:38 AM
Oblamer, The Mother of ALL Illegals, needs to be deported :)
Vince April 17, 2012 at 12:55 AM
Yeah....along with other stuff too. First order of business though, should be to get rid of ALL his apologist's, enabler's, and facilitator's there in the hallowed halls of Congress....but if that were to happen there would be nobody left in there ceptin' for a coupla janitor's maybe...
Diana April 17, 2012 at 04:33 PM
Tonto never has much to say other then short one liners that make no sense, as for the cold one i'm all for that kick back and enjoy this beautiful day...sun shine blue skies..it don't get much better then that!!! Unless of course your out getting some wind on the Harley :)
LBV Collins April 17, 2012 at 04:55 PM
Outside on this gorgeous day with a coupla cold one's ... along with a good quality cigar... and I'm there!
Diana April 17, 2012 at 09:01 PM
Is there any word on the people that have actually, really and truely started impeaching Obummer or is that just another nasty rumor? Where the heck did my spell check go for the Patch...new computers can be such a pain..oh wait it's the Operator..I gotta find the spell check...
Vince April 17, 2012 at 09:26 PM
Awww LBV, I hate to tell ya this...BUT, I am sitting here right now drawin' on a FINE H.Upmann Corona...I have a "snow bird" lady friend from Ontario (Canada) that brings down some pretty good cigars (yeah...they's Cuban)...and they's always "comped" (gifted), since as I have said before: Chick's Dig Me...and even funny talkin' Canuck (Canook) Babes!! And if the truth were known, I like to calls her mah "Canookie Nookie Babe", jes' sayin'...
Diana April 17, 2012 at 10:28 PM
Sweettttttttttttt...I gotta about an hour for my adult beverage then I will be sitting in the sun by the pool with a nice glass of Merlot, it is sooooooooooo beautiful out there I am on the count down :)
Vince April 18, 2012 at 12:11 AM
I done been studying up on some stuff the last coupla days, so here, my predications on things to come...soon: That Occupy Wall Street BS is going to go full blowed medival by the Republican/Democrat Convention's time---w/blood in the streets, and all that sorta stuff...The Black Panther's are just chomping at the bit awaiting the Supreme Court shooting down ObamaCare, and then they will start some SERIOUS SHIAT, with a more then willing black population across the ocuntry (mostly in the Inner Cities at first) foaming at the mouth to KILL WHITEY---And speaking of "white", The White House will continue to stir the pot, and get to poking people even harder in the ribs trying to really loose unrest---Obama's Private Army is being compiled, trained and ARMED, and they will be showing themselves when the shiat hits the fan, Martial Law is declared, and that as per Occupy W-Street getting out of hand---and, they won't be shooting at THOSE A-holes, much, trust me ...And last but not least, Obama wins in Nov., because if he doesn't, the overall agenda WILL NOT be completed as per his Owner's: Putting America on it's knees economically, and then ripe for admission/submission into The One World Government---and them forker's have been waiting a few lifetimes for this very moment: Their greatest opportunity EVER to bring down America---so to allow it to slip by, BY losing their most Useful Idiot EVER in an election, is flat azzed NOT gonna happen... And that is that.
Diana April 18, 2012 at 01:07 AM
Well I am thinking that you are probably right on with your prediction. There is no way that Obummer isn't going to run another 4 years, the people that put him in place in the first place are not going to let him loose until their mission has been accomplished. The part that sucks is all the BS that has to come down with it. The black panthers are pretty scary in themselves and it is going to be sad if your prediction comes down in full force. I feel bad for those that have rectal cranial inversion and are going to get blind sided when s*it hits the fan, but it is what it is. I guess folks just gotta figure it out as it kicks them in the butt.
Tonto April 18, 2012 at 01:20 AM
I want the 300 spot :) How's that for a one liner?
Vince April 18, 2012 at 01:30 AM
A little sneak preview of some of some of the player's in the Occupy Wall Street crowd. And they will be showcasing their unique talents pretty soon: MoveOn.org, The Ruckus Society, Progressive Democrats of America, International Brotherhood of the Teamsters, Service Employees International Union, United Auto Workers, AFL-CIO, Greenpeace, United Steel Workers, National Education Association, Communications Workers of America, Rainforest Action Network, American Federation of Teachers, American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees. Every one of these groups has now openly declared class warfare, and they intend to fight this war not at the ballot box, but on the streets. MoveOn.org has gone so far as to create a separate group to finance The 99% Spring, MoveOn.org Civic Action, a 501c(4) organization, while the electoral work remains housed in MoveOn's PAC. **** Gosh, could THAT be the very same MoveOn.Org that is supported financially by Obama's most bested goodest buddy, Georgie Boy Soros, AKA: The Banker's Point Man? Of course, he is The Daddy Warbucks of ALL America Hater's... Union's? Socialist by structure, but jeez, what a surprise they are runnin' with that illustrious group of America Hater's! Well....on second thought, naw, no surprise at all...
Vince April 18, 2012 at 01:33 AM
"300"....Hey!!! What a great name for a...movie! I'm jes' sayin'.
Tonto April 18, 2012 at 01:43 AM
Great movie. We need a crew like that on the border :)
Diana April 18, 2012 at 01:48 AM
Tonto: If things come down as planned the border is going to be a passing thought in each Americans minds, they're gonna be to busy trying to figure out what the heck is going on and how do I protect myself and my family.
LBV Collins April 18, 2012 at 02:46 AM
H. Upmann… very fine cigar, Vince. I’ve enjoyed quite a few of those in my lifetime… though I prefer 50+ ring gauges, instead of 40-ish ring gauge of Coronas. Nonetheless, fine cigar. I recently came across a flavorful smoke called Alec Bradley Family Blend. I like the Torpedo T11 (6 1/8" x 52 ring gauge). Very enjoyable. (Just ordered a box of 20 and I’m anxiously awaiting their arrival.) And not too bad an arrangement with your "Canookie Nookie Babe.” Handmade Cuban cigars personally delivered to your front door from over 1,000 miles away by a babe… for FREE! (Damn you…) ;)
Diana April 18, 2012 at 09:14 PM
Pop the champagne, send up the balloons "300" yeeee hawwwwwwwwww
Diana April 18, 2012 at 09:15 PM
Sorry that 300 was late, must be the blonde hair tee hee
Vince April 19, 2012 at 12:07 AM
Here is a great example of why THEY want to regulate, and control content on The Net: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Iz3VjoHXLA This is a coupla years old---and It is a mighty good explanation of "The Blueprint" being followed to break the back of America, and break all American's will to resist, and fight back---leastways all the American's viewed by the "elites" as "disposable". And the "disposable's" demise WILL be viewed and accepted as a necessary "collateral damage", when it comes to pass. Those of us born in the late 40's, into the early 50's, who grew up AFTER WW2 (we "Boomer's") , why, we see what is unfolding very clearly (as do most of those before us) ---but people who were born after the 50's, and have been methodically indoctrinated in the schools, and by the media propaganda machine in most all it's forms ((T.V., movies, print), since the late 60's on...well, they think it is all business as usual, and "normal" so far as their life experience goes... I cannot say this enough: We TRULY are at a crossroads in this country, and I do honestly fear that we are now being dragged down the wrong fork to the dream come true (for certain people) model of a One World Government--and one that is absolutely SOCIALIST in nature, and design. The next few months leading up to the election should be VERY telling and revealing, as to just what THE master plan is...
