From the war against gangs, some good news

This is good news. Technically it is illegal to be illegal when you commit crimes on American soil. 
Federal immigration officials say a three-month operation in Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut and Rhode Island has led to the arrest 47 of people suspected of being gang members or having ties to gangs.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Harold Ort said on Friday that many of the suspects had histories of violent crimes including attempted murder, car jacking, assault and battery with dangerous weapons, assault to rape and possession of firearms.
Needless to say not all immigrants are not criminals nor gangbangers but the few that are cause a lot of havoc in places like East Boston.
