Title:Authorities begin another round of crackdowns on undocumented in Pakistani Community
Blurb:FBI, INS and local law enforcement agencies began a second round of crackdowns on undocumented Pakistani immigrants.
Body:The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and other federal and state law enforcement agencies began a second round of crackdowns on undocumented Pakistani immigrants for whom deportation orders have been issued.
Two of the Pakistani immigrants who were rounded up include Mr. Anwar, who owns a Queens junkyard, and Mr. Saeed, a Brooklyn resident who used to sell hosiery goods in Manhattan. Law enforcement agencies picked them up from their apartments at midnight. INS agents raided three different places to detain Mr. Saeed before finding him in an apartment on East 10th Street, in Brooklyn. It is interesting to note that the INS ignored another Pakistani family overstaying their visas in the second apartment they searched. This shows a major change in the INS policy; now, rather than detaining every suspect, they are only after the people for whom deportation orders have been issued.
During the last 20 years, the United States issued deportation orders against more than 300,000 people. Most people in this category have not yet left the United States. Law enforcement agencies have been given the task to ensure the implementation of said deportation orders.
