Exactly who has been deported?

President Trump's administration conducted their first national raid of illegal immigrants, deporting hundreds of people including 41 from New York City and surrounding areas ‒ including seven from Queens ‒ infuriating progressive politicians.

City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito stated in her 'State of the City' that she intends to defy federal immigration agents and Councilwoman Crowley said to the Queens Tribune that she considers it her job to protect the immigrant community from deportations.

New York has always persevered, no matter the obstacle, Mark-Viverito said in her State of the City address declaring that government officials will not be complying with immigration agents. Whether defying a king in England or a president in Washington, we stand up for what is right.

While politicians have enjoyed grandstanding against Trump, even using him as a foil for their re-election campaigns, they never seem to want to discuss who he's deporting.

Federal officials released the information of all 41 illegals deported from New York City and the surrounding counties in the February 17th raid.
