Almost 500 people were arrested during a four-day nationwide sweep by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that ended Wednesday.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said 50 people were arrested in MA on federal immigration violations as part of an operation in several cities and states.

Chicago and Cook County are among the jurisdictions that refuse to allow immigration agents access to local jails or to notify agents when someone in the United States illegally is about to be released from custody.

ICE Acting Director Tom Homan said in a statement that sanctuary jurisdictions "are shielding criminal aliens from immigration enforcement and creating a magnet for illegal immigration".

As a result, ICE dedicated more resources to "these communities" for the arrests, he wrote.

As in past operations, ICE officials said they primarily went after people with criminal pasts and said participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, DACA, were not targeted.

A news release highlighted seven Denver cases, but did not explain the circumstances surrounding the arrest of the nine people who ICE said do not have a criminal record. Only Philadelphia with 107 and Los Angeles with 101 had more.

According to ICE, among those arrested in Los Angeles was a documented gang member who entered the country illegally and rammed multiple law enforcement vehicles while trying to evade authorities.

The names of those arrested were not released, but ICE said that of the 498 immigrants arrested, 317 had been convicted of crimes and 104 are "previously deported criminal aliens".

Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump do not like sanctuary cities, even if that term lacks any official, legal definition that's been ratified by a judge. "Non-cooperation policies severely undermine that effort at the expense of public safety".

Changes in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) protocol has prompted the Teton County, Wyoming Sheriff's Department and Jackson Police Department to call a special public meeting.

Arrests were also made in San Francisco and San Jose.

"Public safety is about all of us being safe from the hands of Trump's criminalization machine and can not be defined by ICE agents who knock down the doors of our homes with guns and drag people out in front of their children", Almiron said in a statement.

In addition to Denver not honoring detainer requests (important fact: federal judges have sided with Denver, ruling that detainer requests can not be mandated), the city recently drew the ire of ICE by passing an ordinance that limits communication between city employees and the federal agency.
