CHICAGO — Federal officials in Chicago say they have arrested 370 convicted illegal immigrants and immigration fugitives in a three-day bust in 10 Midwest states.
In a news release Friday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says some of the people arrested included gang members and sex offenders.
The operation ended Thursday and arrests were made in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Kansas, Missouri, Michigan and Ohio. Other arrests were made in Iowa, Minnesota and Nebraska. Officials initially said arrests also were made in South Dakota but later removed that state from the list.
ICE Director John Morton is in Chicago to talk about the arrests at an afternoon news conference.
