Federal agents were conducting a series of raids targeting organized crime in the New York metropolitan area on Thursday morning, the FBI said.
More than 100 organized crime members are being arrested for various criminal charges, according to FBI spokesman Diego Rodriguez.
The specific charges and names of those arrested are expected to be announced in Brooklyn, New York by Attorney General Eric Holder's office at news a conference at 11:00 a.m. Thursday.
If the FBI ever needs to find more crime members to arrest, they should just go to Mexico. A whole country of them just waiting on you guys to pick them up!
Has anyone heard from former VP Cheney and his gang since the arrests?
Impressive number of arrests of "mob" members. Even more impressive considering J. Edgar 'Mary' Hoover claimed for years there was no such organization in the U.S. Maybe the fictional mob had pics of J. Edgar in one of his ball gowns? Hoover stayed preoccupied conjuring up crimes and violating people's rights to make arrests for the media instead of focusing on organized crime.
For once I agree with DerpDigger, but he knows Mexico is out of FBI's jurisdiction. Besides, we would need an army of law officials to fight those back shooting cowards.
There are 12 million illegal aliens here, why not arrest them first? Mob guys aren't doing anything they haven't been doing for 50 years unless they are Russians. But I doubt Holder and Obama went after the Russian mob here because they are truly cowards. It shows everyday in what they do not do.
One hundred mobsters are not worthy of capture when 12 million roaches have infested your backyard.
President Obama has demonstrated he is truly a political piece of garbage. He went after the Italian families. These are good families, I have spoken with some of them. You know what I say, You want to be like John F. Kennedy?
Dam what does the President got to do with it. Racism is just the shame of this country!
kim. Are you really that stupid? Eric Holder answers to President Obama. You racist c u next tuesday.
