In Southern California, approximately 160 arrests were made last week by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to those "who pose a threat to public safety, border security or the integrity of our nation's immigration system," U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said in a written statement.

Southern California was not the only place that got hit with sudden arrests, but also other cities across the United States like Chicago, Atlanta, San Antonio and New York City where more than 680 people were arrested.
