MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Federal officials say they've arrested 38 people in southeastern Wisconsin over five days. They say those taken into custody were fugitive aliens and immigration violators.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials says fugitive aliens are illegal aliens who fail to appear for immigration hearings or disappear after being ordered to leave the country.
Sixteen of those arrested were fugitives and 22 were immigration violators who were encountered as officers made the targeted arrests.
The arrests were made in Milwaukee, Kenosha and Racine counties.
Those arrested were from seven countries -- Albania, China, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Ukraine and Yugoslavia.
