Will supporters claim these 596 convicted of crimes nabbed in South really amount to racial profiling & now?
ATLANTA — Federal agents say they arrested 596 immigrants with criminal records during a three-day immigration enforcement sweep across the Southeast in their biggest operation yet.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Friday the three-day operation — dubbed Operation Cross Check — was the largest sweep the agency has ever conducted targeting foreign nationals convicted of crimes.
