ICE arrests of noncriminals in California soar amid Trump crackdown

Immigration arrests of people without criminal convictions continue to soar in California, where the Trump administration emphasized its crackdown with a February sweep in the northern part of the state meant to counteract pro-immigrant sanctuary laws.

From October through March, more than 3,400 “non-criminals” were arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s California offices, the agency said Thursday.

That was a significant jump from the same time period a year earlier, which included the final 3½ half months of President Barack Obama’s term, when about 1,000 “non-criminals” were arrested by the agency through the California offices, which include San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego.
