Immigration authorities arrest dozens of illegal immigrants throughout the New York City area.
ICE officials say they detained a total of 55 illegals during a six day enforcement operation.
42 of those captured had previously been held by local police, but were released due to New York’s sanctuary city policies.
A total of nine women and 46 men were detained originating from 22 different countries, with the majority coming from Mexico.
Additionally, at least 10 of the detainees re-entered the U.S. illegally after being deported once before.
They are facing up to 20 years in federal prison before being removed again.
