ICE busts more than 50 illegal immigrants in New England raids

December 7, 2018 | Brainwave Science


More than 50 undocumented immigrants have been detained by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement department in the last five days.  The ICE arrested 58 people in enforcement activities across New England. The suspects who were arrested had previous criminal charges and convictions including murder, aggravated identity theft, assault, attempted assault, cocaine possession and OUI. Of the 58 arrested for violating U.S. immigration laws, 30 had prior felony convictions for violent offences; 33 had criminal charges pending; 9 had been previously removed from the U.S. and returned illegally; 15 had been previously released from local law enforcement custody, correctional facilities and/or court custody with an active detainer; one was referred to the U.S. Marshals for failure to register as a sex offender; four have active Interpol Red Notices; and nine were referred to criminal prosecution for the appropriate U.S. Attorney’s Office in the jurisdiction.

The busts in Massachusetts took place in Lynn, Methuen, Brockton, Dorchester and Hyannis. Busts also took place in Putnam, Connecticut and Windham, New Hampshire.

The arrestees include people from the Dominican Republic, France, Jamaica, Haiti and Antigua, among other nations. According to the ICE, some of the suspects arrested during the operation will face federal criminal prosecutions for illegal entry and illegal re-entry after deportation. Those who are not being federally prosecuted are detained in ICE custody and will be processed administratively for removal from the U.S.

ICE officers in New England continue to enforce immigration laws as they have always done, targeting criminal aliens and removing them. Despite unjustified criticism, the officers continue to work daily with professionalism and integrity to enforce immigration law and protect our communities from criminal aliens.


The 58 persons arrested possess a big deal of information regarding the crimes they have committed. The challenge faced by the investigative agencies is to extract accurate and actionable information from the arrestees.  However, the intelligence retrieved using traditional methods is not quite reliable and objective. It might involve the torture of the suspect. These methods are also very subjective and do not reveal the true picture. There is a need for an upgrade in the investigative and interrogative methodologies so that the persons who have been arrested can be effectively interrogated without delay and suffering on their part.


iCognative technology by Brainwave Science can address the crucial issue of illegal immigration. In addition, this technology can also lend valuable insights and lead to the perpetrator in other cases regarding murder, aggravated identity theft, assault, attempted assault, cocaine possession and OUI. Not only this, but iCognative can also help penetrate the larger criminal organisations on the basis of test results obtained from the test subjects. iCognative is a technology which is considered almost perfect and virtually impossible to beat. iCognative technology taps into the human brain. Unlike the Lie-detector test, iCognative is accurate and has no known countermeasures. It reports no false positives and not false negatives either.

In the case of the arrest of the 58 persons, investigation agencies can utilize this iCognative test to determine if they have awareness of the particular crimes which they have been arrested for. iCognative can help to quickly determine if the suspects are guilty or not. Moreover, it can help to understand the level of involvement of the suspects in their respective crimes. Once the iCognative test is conducted, the law enforcement agents will be able to identify, with 99% accuracy, the level of involvement of each of the persons in the crimes which they have been arrested for.

By conducting the iCognative test, investigators can gather more information regarding the crime. The use of iCognative technology can prevent such crimes. Immigration agencies and Law enforcement agencies can derive great benefits from the use of iCognative technology in their pursuit of meaningful interrogation and effective investigation. iCognative by Brainwave Science can help Immigration departments worldwide to keep criminals off the streets.
