Immigration agents aid in arrests of accused gang members

Of the arrests, 933 were United States citizens and 445 were foreign nationals, though ICE could not provide how many were in the U.S. lillegally.

Acting Director for ICE Thomas Homan in a Thursday announcement emphasized the role of local law enforcement in fighting gang activity and harped on the threat gangs posed to communities. ICE said it worked with San Antonio police to arrest Gilbert Vasquez III, an alleged associate of the Tango Orejon Gang, on April 5. HSI arrested 29 MS-13 members in this region, including one at a stash house in Falls Church, Va., that was used for sex trafficking. The number of arrests in this one operation is almost equal to the total number of gang arrests in the entire 2014 fiscal year (the most recent year for which I have statistics) - that year HSI made 1,578 gang arrests.
