U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested 114 illegal immigrants and fugitives in New York during an 11-day operation.
Eighty-two of those arrested in the operation have prior criminal histories, including a Mexican national convicted of first degree manslaughter, an Ecuadorian convicted of rape, and 17 more who have been convicted of driving under the influence.
Approximately another dozen of those arrested have been convicted of drug trafficking offenses while several others were in possession of drugs.
The 114 arrested individuals are from a total of 35 different countries. Ten of those arrested were women.
Final orders for removal from the United States will be applied to 37 of those arrested, while nine were released and have an active detainer.
Eleven individuals are facing criminal charges for re-entry after prior deportation—a felony that can result in 20 years in prison. All others will face deportation.
