Federal sweep targeting illegal immigrants snares 1,150 statewide

This reminds me of the failed US war against drugs. Arrest lots of folks at the street level, get on the 6 o'clock news, and leave the big fish profiting from exploiting economic immigrants free to go on fishing for greed driven profits.

In the biggest action of its kind, federal immigration agents have arrested more than 1,150 people statewide in raids targeting illegal immigrants who ignored deportation orders.

The 3-week sweep, which ended Saturday, netted 420 people in Riverside, San Bernardino, Los Angeles and Orange counties. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not break down arrests by county.
