ICE arrests 37 fugitives in three-day sweep
September 12, 2012 (WLS) -- Thirty-seven convicted criminal aliens were arrested in the Chicago area and Northwest Indiana in a three-day sweep.
U.S. immigration officials say the 31 of the fugitives had convictions for crimes ranging from battery to murder. Twelve had been ordered to leave the country but failed to do so; and six had been deported before by re-entered illegally, which is a felony.
The fugitives, all male, are from four countries -- 34 from Mexico and one each from Poland, Guatemala and Trinidad.
