50 State Sweep Arrests Nearly 3,000 Undocumented Residents

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2011 at 8:44 AM

Idaho was included in a nationwide sweep today in which Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested 2,901 undocumented residents of the United States who were wanted on outstanding warrants. Details have not been released on local arrests. The arrests capped a week-long operation in all 50 states and four U.S. territories.

Law enforcement said all those who were arrested had criminal convictions and more than 1,600 had felony convictions, including manslaughter, attempted murder and drug trafficking.

"The rests of this targeted enforcement operation underscore ICE's ongoing commitment and focus on the arrest and removal of convicted criminal aliens and those that game our nation's immigration system," said ICE Director John Morton.
