Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced the "largest gang surge" to date conducted by its Homeland Security Investigations.

The agency said that 76 were arrested in San Antonio and south Texas. Those arrested were operating out of a house that was being used for alleged sex trafficking.

The arrests included 1,098 on federal and/or state criminal charges, with 21 arrested on murder related charges and seven for rape and sexual assault charges. The remaining 280 were arrested on immigration violations, they said.

The operation was highly successful, leading to 1,378 total arrests, including 445 non-citizen foreign nationals. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders, it undermines ICE's ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission.

In Detroit, there has been an ongoing effort by law enforcement to crack down on gang violence, with local, state and federal law enforcement groups teaming up to dismantle what they consider the most violent gangs in the crime-plagued city. Crips and Bloods, traditionally black, non-immigrant street gangs, combined for 241 busts, while Hispanic gangs like MS-13 and Surenos had 222 of their members scooped up in the haul.

Three of the gangsters arrested had previously been granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

The objective of the SGM was to take a call on the revenue loss and governance reforms at the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The gang affiliations of all the members were not specified, but the department said one member was a member of the Aryan Brotherhood.

ICE says there were 17 total gang arrests made by the D.C. field office, and 35 made by the Baltimore field office.

According to agency officials, a further 280 people - nearly two thirds of them gang affiliated - face prosecution for being in the United States illegally and will be processed for deportation.

A similar operation in March 2016 netted more than 1,100 arrests.

Eight of the MS-13 members caught crossed the border as unaccompanied minors, according to the release.

On April 26, ICE said, it worked with Fairfax County police to arrest 11 MS-13 gang members at a "stash house" in Falls Church.
