65 Immigrants Busted In Michigan In Nationwide ‘Cross Check’

DETROIT (WWJ) – More than 3,100 criminal aliens, immigration fugitives and violators are arrested as part of a six-day national “Cross Check” operation. Sixty-seven of those were arrested in Michigan.

About half of those arrested had felony convictions including murder, kidnapping, armed robbery, drug trafficking, and child abuse.

“The results 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 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton.ice dearborn 65 Immigrants Busted In Michigan In Nationwide Cross Check

“Because of the tireless efforts and teamwork of ICE officers and agents in tracking down criminal aliens and fugitives, there are 3,168 fewer criminal aliens and egregious immigration law violators in our neighborhoods across the country.”

This operation, which ICE said was the largest of its kind, involved nearly 2,000 ICE officers and agents, as well as state and local law enforcement partners throughout the U.S.

Arrests occurred in all 50 states, the Puerto Rico, three U.S. territories and Washington D.C.

No names have been released.
