We're learning more about the 41 undocumented immigrants arrested in the New York area as part of the nationwide enforcement action by U.S. Customs and Immmigration Enforcement last week.
Sources tell NY1 that 22 of the 41 people were arrested in the city - seven in Queens, six in the Bronx, four in Manhattan, three in Brooklyn and two on Staten Island.
Of the remaining people arrested, 14 were taken into custody on Long Island, and five were arrested in Rockland, Orange and Putnam counties north of the city. Two of the 41 detainees are women.
All of the 41 people arrested were born in Latin America or the Caribbean, and nearly all had criminal convictions, for offenses ranging from rape and robbery -- to driving under the influence.
A 49-year-old man, who is from Jamaica, had been convicted of first-degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 11. He was arrested in the Bronx. Another of the detainees is a 31-year-old admitted gang member from El Salvador.
But nine of the 41 people picked up only have criminal convictions for driving under the influence, according to a list obtained by NY1. The nine were picked up on Long Island or north of the city.
In 2014, President Barack Obama's homeland security chief issued a memo directing ICE to focus enforcement on undocumented immigrants who had recently entered the U.S. or committed serious felonies. Immigrants convicted of driving under the influence were treated as lower priorities for deportation, although many were still picked up.
A controversial executive order sign by President Trump soon after taking office broadened the category of undocumented immigrants being targeted to include anyone convicted of a criminal offense.
Trump's Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has said last week's arrests - 680 across the country - were routine and consistent with normal ICE operations. Immigration advocates contend the raids were more sweeping than in the past.
