A new report shows ‘Immigration and Customs Enforcement‘ officials are cracking down on illegal immigrants who do not voluntarily leave the country.

According to a document obtained by Buzzfeed Wednesday, more than 180 immigrants were arrested in recent weeks as part of ‘Operation Broken Promise.’

Those targeted were previously granted voluntary departure, where they committed to leaving the U.S. on their own, without being deported.  The procedure was expanded to include illegal immigrants who cannot prove they’ve lived in the U.S. for the last two years. ICE officials are expected to announce the results of their operation on Thursday.
