Immigration Operation Nets 37 Arrests in Oklahoma (Sep 29, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - At least 37 people have been arrested in Oklahoma as part of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operation targeting illegal immigrants with criminal convictions.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials announced Wednesday that most of the Oklahoma arrests - 19- occurred in Oklahoma City. ICE Central Region spokesman Carl Rusnok says seven arrests occurred in Tulsa, two happened in Ada and one each occurred in Chickasha; Commerce; Coweta; Lone Grove; McAlester, Mustang; Norman; Seminole and Tahlequah. No names or specific crimes were released.

Officials say the arrests are part of a seven-day national "Cross Check" enforcement operation that led to more than 2,900 arrests nationwide.

The Oklahoma arrests were made by agents in the Dallas area of responsibility, which includes 128 counties in North Texas and all of Oklahoma.
