Immigrant Arrests
(2008-02-27)
(wgvu) - Federal immigration officials say they've
arrested illegal immigrants in Michigan with outstanding
deportation orders as part of a six-state operation.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says there were a total
of 225 arrests in Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, New York, Wisconsin and
Missouri.
The four-day operation ended Monday.
The individuals arrested had outstanding deportation orders to
12 countries including Mexico, Cuba, Guatemala, India and Poland.
Homeland Security says the effort is intended to send a strong
message to individuals who disregard the law.
The arrests were part of the Fugitive Operations Program, which
was started in 2003.
