ICE crackdown in Pueblo scaring some families back to Mexico | Pueblo Chieftain

ICE crackdown in Pueblo scaring some families back to Mexico | Pueblo Chieftain: President Donald Trump's crackdown on undocumented immigrants by federal agents is scaring some of those families back to Mexico, according to knowledgable sources in the Pueblo community.

According to news reports, federal Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents were told in a February memorandum to detain any undocumented person they encountered -- not just those with a criminal history or those in jails, the previous policy.

That ramped-up enforcement has reportedly led to 14 people in the Pueblo area being arrested by ICE agents this year.
