Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers reportedly arrested 368 criminal illegal immigrants in seven states and Washington, D.C. in one week – a nearly 250 percent jump from the week earlier.

The Washington Examiner reported the biggest busts were in Texas, where 158 were arrested – but that raids were carried out as far north as Wyoming. 

In one five-day raid around Virginia and Washington late last month, 82 illegals from 26 countries were arrested. 

"ICE's primary immigration enforcement efforts target convicted criminal aliens," Daniel Bible, field office director for Enforcement and Removal Operations in San Antonio, Texas, told the Examiner.

"Consequently, our operations improve overall public safety by removing these criminals from our streets, and ultimately from our country."

Arrests of illegal immigrants trying to sneak into the United States across the Mexican border plummeted in March to the lowest monthly figure in more than 17 years, the Department of Homeland Security reported last week. 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions plans to visit the border next week
