ICE Sting on Sesame Street

This morning ICE officials, in cooperation with the NYPD, cracked down on Sesame Street.


Elmo was detained.

They detained a number of puppets, including Elmo, who was reportedly from Columbia without a valid work visa. Officials also grounded Big Bird, who didn’t have proper identification and was deemed a flight risk.

Additionally, officers found half a kilo of cocaine in Cookie Monster’s Hyundai.
