ICE announced that deportation officers and special agents arrested 212 individuals for violating federal immigration laws and served 122 notices of inspection (NOIs) to businesses in the Los Angeles area of responsibility during a five-day targeted operation.

ICE Spokesperson Danielle Bennett told NPR that "uncooperative jurisdictions" were to blame for making ICE "conduct at-large arrests in the community." Both the city of Los Angeles and the state of California have enacted policies limiting cooperation with federal immigration officials.
