That's all you gotta type. Please.

CNN reports that the ICE operation took in only 35 of their targeted 2000 immigrants. According to Twitter user soit_goes, CNN originally published the following quote and then removed it.
“I don't know of any other population where people are telling them how to avoid arrest as a result of illegal activity," ICE’s director said. "It certainly makes it harder for us to effectuate these orders issued."
This is good.
