1…………> ICE Raid: NJ


ICE Newark Field Office arrested 37 individuals during a five-day operation that concluded Friday, as part of the agency’s ongoing public safety efforts, with 16 subjects that had been previously released by MCJ without honoring the ICE detainer and 78% had prior criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.

“ERO New Jersey will continue to enforce ICE’s commitment to public safety,” said Ruben Perez, Acting Field Office Director of ERO in Newark. “Middlesex County, which aspires to be a ‘sanctuary county’ by protecting criminal aliens, in the process assists criminals in undermining federal law and creates a dangerous environment in the community. It also overburdens local law enforcement. ICE will continue to execute its mission in such communities.”

The individuals arrested as part of the operation were nationals of Brazil, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Ivory Coast, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, and Turkey.

These individuals range from 21 to 68 years old and all were previously arrested or convicted of a variety of offenses. Some of the arrests and convictions included: aggravated criminal sexual contact, aggravated assault, DUI, hindering apprehension, endangering the welfare of a child, battery, theft, burglary, possession of a weapon, forgery, domestic violence assault, disorderly conduct, and illegal entry.

3…………> Trump/Putin Lunch: No Vodka Yet


President  Trump says he and President Putin had a “good start” to their high-stakes summit in Helsinki, Finland, calling the meeting with his counterpart “a good start, a very good start for everybody” as the two leaders and their top advisers sat across the table from one another during a working lunch, 
shook hands and answered reporters’ questions before the summit, all this civility despite the meeting being assailed by Mr.Trump’s greatest enemy, blabbermouth Maxine “Fire 45” Waters.

“We are the two great nuclear powers, we have 90% of the nuclear and that’s not a good thing, it’s a bad thing,” he said.

“And I think we can hopefully do something about that because it’s not a positive force, it’s a negative force. So we’ll be talking about that among other things.”

Mr. Trump said the leaders’ discussions would involve trade, the military, missiles, nuclear weapons and China, including their “mutual friend”, Chinese President Xi Jinping.
