America’s fight against criminal aliens is waged on two fronts: at the border to keep them out, and within the United States, to expel the ones who have made it in. There has been good news on both fronts.

Meanwhile, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has nabbed dangerous Hispanics.
In Charlotte, North Carolina, ICE arrested 12 illegal aliens, including:
Elder Amador-Lopez, a twice-deported Guatemalan charged with DWI and Assault on a Female.
Jose Ruiz-Quintero, a Nicaraguan ordered deported in August 2019, charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon Inflicting Serious Bodily Injury.
In and around Chicago, ICE arrested 88 illegal aliens, including:
In Denver, Colorado ICE arrested one of its ten most-wanted: Joseph Toro-Zaldivar, below, a once-deported Honduran with pending charges for Assault on a Peace Officer, Strangulation, Felony Menacing with a Weapon, Disarming an Officer, Assault, Criminal Mischief, and Resisting Arrest.
In California, ICE arrested Josue Gamaliel Vidal Quintanilla, a middle-school teacher and child pornographer.
As always, ICE and Border Patrol deserve our unwavering support. Let’s hope they keep up the good work.
