ICE Arrests More Than 10,000 Known or Suspected Gang Members


Gangs are involved in a myriad of criminal activity, including murder, extortion, narcotics and weapons trafficking, human smuggling/trafficking and prostitution and other crimes with a nexus to the border. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) combine their unique authorities to target criminal activity and administrative immigration violations of known or suspected gang members.

In FY2018, ICE arrested more than 10,000 known or suspected gang members - including more than 2,000 Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) members. This figure includes both criminal and administrative immigration arrests.
