ICE agents bust 678 street gang members in three months 

WHAT: In 168 U.S. cities, from December to February immigration agents teamed with state and local authorities to arrest 678 suspected street gang members connected to Mexico’s violent drug-smuggling cartels.

Members of 133 gangs were arrested and 447 of the suspects are now facing criminal charges. Another 231 people were held on administrative charges of illegal immigration.

Mexican cartels are battling each other and President Felipe Calderon’s drug offensive in a struggle that has killed more than 35,000 people. Their U.S gang affiliates have spread violent crimes and drug trafficking nationwide.
