Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently carried out 680 arrests of undocumented immigrants, 75 percent of whom have been accused of committing violent crimes, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

The arrests have sparked outrage, but Homeland Security said these were routine searches.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano was a guest on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday to discuss the recent arrests.

"This is what Donald Trump said he was going to do," the judge said.

Napolitano said the undocumented immigrants fall into two classes: those here illegally who pose no threat -- whom he called "harmless" -- and those here illegally who have committed crimes -- whom he called "harmful."

"Trump is going after the 75 percent that are harmful," he said.

Napolitano continued that if an undocumented immigrant has not yet been ordered deported, that person is entitled to a trial and an appeal. He said legal costs per deportation could total upwards of $250,000, a bill funded by taxpayers.
