ICE's 2017 Retrospective Left Just a Few Things Out

This image was removed due to legal reasons.

2017 was an awfully busy one for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency under President Donald Trump. So busy, in fact, that ICE was able to compile an entire “year in review” list for anyone interested in that sort of thing. It has all sorts of heartwarming entries like “ICE ERO immigration arrests climb nearly 40%” and “ICE-led gang surge nets 1,378 arrests nationwide.” Isn’t rounding up immigrants great???

But, in looking at ICE’s roundup (and the near-identical version of the list published by Breitbart), it’s clear that the winner of 2017's “government agency most likely to split up families” award left a few of its greatest hits off the list.

Here are 10 stories that ICE inexplicably failed to mention.
