Federal Agents Plan to Arrest Non-Fugitive Illegal Aliens
John Morton spoke to reporters Wednesday in San Diego about ICE's fugitive operations -- a program that grew sharply during the Bush administration. The effort has riled immigrant advocates who say tactics have been heavy-handed and complain that people who got arrested often aren't the targets.
Morton says ICE teams will target those who ignored deportation orders -- especially those who committed crimes in the United States -- but that they won't overlook others.
Earlier this week, Morton said the ICE teams are no longer working under arrest quotas.
