U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents targeted "sanctuary cities" in raids that led to 498 arrests.

ICE Acting Director Tom Homan said these cities are "creating a magnet for illegal immigration." Philadelphia had the highest number of arrests with 107 people, followed by Los Angeles with 101.

Sanctuary city proponents argue that cooperating with ICE leads people to be less likely to help with local police investigations.
