detained and deported are hardened criminal, we're told because the administration is so new, the numbers they have only reflect a specific raid or week. however, a look back gives us a clear idea of the breakdown of exactly who is being deported from the united states. according to ice data from immigration removal in 2016, 240,255 total were deported, which includes people arrested in ice raised and people who are arrested by other law enforcement agencies and handed over to ice. that was a 2% increase from 2015 and 58% or 138,669 people were previously convicted of a crime. 257,000 were classified or suspect order confirmed gang members. that means less than
5:04 pm
total people were associated with gangs. on the other hand, 42% or 101,586 people according to data from ice were not previously convicted of any crime. another big question is about the reentry of these immigrants, how many of these convicted criminals who are deported after serving sentences ends upcoming right back into the country illegally. the answer is we really don't know immigration and customs enforcement says that it's very hard to track and the agency actually doesn't have data to answer that. let's continue talking about immigration and ice raised. lauren demarco is live in alexandria on a group of people detained by ice here locally. lauren? >> reporter: that's what we're hearing of we're here at rising hope united methodist church that alexandria and the pastor here i just spoke with him. he tells me on

5:46 pm
beautiful, cooler, we're 3450i8d milder on president's day. it looks like it will be sunny all day long with nice high pressure kind of ruling the area. we don't have much in the way of cloud cover. fair skies. looks like that's the way it will stay overnight so that takes the temperatures down. we'll get down to the low 30's for some, quantico 31, manassas 31, a real dry atmosphere, it's a clear atmosphere and winds are light so temperature can say drop off. by tomorrow morning, temperatures will really warm up quickly we're down oh about 38 degrees. gaithersburg is 34. look how quickly we warm up tomorrow. 8:00 a.m. we're 41. that's cool. we're already into the upper 50's and low 60's by lunch time tomorrow with mild conditions. high is going to be 66 degrees, more clouds in the afternoon, here's why. futurecast. by 10:00 a.m. we're good but watch the clouds come in late in the day and into the early evening hours, we're going to stay dry but a little bit of this rain out here can come across sunday, saturday night into sunday morning, futurecast
5:47 pm
clouds out of here, 18 as early as 8:00 or 9:00 in the morning, i think we'll have a few clouds around but definitely looks like with this trend, this is a ago trend. general al dry trend and a trend towards more sunshine earlier on sunday is a good thing and all this rain off the coast will stay well away from us and as we get into sunday afternoon and evening, with good sunshine, temperatures go right back up again in the 60's. there will be a frontal system to the north of us, northern counties along the mason dixon line may cool off a little bit late in the afternoon and when that front comes through, the back door front, it will cool thing down a little bit on president's day. still looks real nice. how about this for a seven-day forecast doesn't look like anything having to do with february. 67 tomorrow, 66 sunday. again i think the way to save the weekend will be 65, 70. monday 62, cooler with clouds on tuesday, 57 and we're right back up in the mid to upper 60's for wednesday and
