The Department of Homeland Security has announced that they just concluded a 3 day sweep in which about 600 illegal aliens with criminal convictions were arrested. Most of the illegal aliens arrested will be deported but 22 of them may be prosecuted for illegally entering the United States after they were deported. Most of the arrests were made in Atlanta, Florida and Puerto Rico. Those arrested came from over 60 different countries. All, except for 24 of those arrested, had not been turned over to immigration officials when they were released from prison. Immigration and Customs Enforcement estimates that at least 1 million illegal aliens with criminal convictions are currently in the United States.
