"While we continue to face significant obstacles in dealing with so-called "sanctuary city" policies, which hinder cooperation with local law enforcement, we will continue our relentless pursuit of safeguarding communities, diligently enforcing the USA immigration laws", said Gregory Archambeault, field office director of ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations in San Diego.

During the five-day operation that ended last Friday, 44 people were arrested and an additional nine were taken into custody before the sweep started, ICE said.

California Senate Bill 54, signed into law past year, prohibits state and local law enforcement agencies from sharing any information with immigration officials. "While we continue to face significant obstacles in dealing with so-called "sanctuary-city" policies, which hinder cooperation with local law enforcement, we will continue our relentless pursuit of safeguarding communities, diligently enforcing the USA immigration laws".

"The success of this operation is a direct result of the full commitment of the dedicated men and women of ICE", John Tsoukaris, field office director for Enforcement and Removal Operations Newark said.
