U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Fugitive Operations officers make an arrest during a five-day expanded enforcement operation targeting at-large criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants, and immigration fugitives.

Since the immigration executive orders signed by Trump this year, ICE has arrested more than 41,000 people across the country who are known or suspected of being in the country illegally, up almost 40 percent over the same period in 2016, officials said.

A 55-year-old Guatemalan national with convictions for domestic violence causing injury and for driving under the influence was arrested on Sunday in El Segundo.

"Some of these risky individuals had been released to the streets instead of being turned over to ICE or our detainers, which compromises the safety of the homeland that ICE officers strive to protect every day", ERO Philadelphia Acting Field Office Director Jennifer Ritchey said in the release.

While Kelly told NBC's "Meet the Press" earlier this year that "illegally doesn't necessarily get you targeted, it's got to be something else", ICE does not only arrest immigrants that they specifically target.

At least eight individuals may could face up to 20 years behind bars for alleged re-entry to the country after deportation.

Memos put out by the Trump administration in his first weeks in office adjusted priorities for immigration enforcement officers, enabling them to arrest more broadly - virtually every undocumented immigrant in the U.S. entering the purview. But that number did increase from 87 such arrests last year to 224 this year.
