Fox regular claims ICE is only rounding up criminals. Noncriminal arrests by ICE more than doubled under Trump.
From the May 17 edition of Fox News' America's Newsroom:
BILL HEMMER (ANCHOR): We don't know how the California people feel about these new sanctuary state laws.
JESSICA TARLOV (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): No, we don't.
HEMMER: This is a large state with millions of people and we haven't gotten a gauge of that.
LAWRENCE JONES (CAMPUS REFORM, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF): Yeah, and it's not like the president of the United States has suggested a round-up. ICE is not rounding up, they're going after the criminals.
TARLOV: Well, actually -- no, no, no, no.
JONES: I don't understand why they won't give them up.
TARLOV: His attorney general has suggested that. And what Jeff Sessions has done that is different than previous attorney generals has said ICE can go after people who are suspected of a crime. Not people where you have evidence they have done it.
JONES: They already committed a crime by coming in the country illegally.
TARLOV: For the 11 million who are here already illegally -- 11, 12, 13, whatever the stats are right now --
JONES: And he also said he's willing to split up families as well if they come across the border illegally because they use that as a tool to stay within this country.
TARLOV: They have taken 700 children since October from their families. That is a record.
