Federal immigration officials arrest 4 in Anchorage during weekend operation
Four people in Alaska were among 84 foreign nationals arrested over the weekend and on Monday as part of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement operation in the Pacific Northwest, ICE officials announced Thursday.
The four Alaska arrests were all made in Anchorage, said ICE spokeswoman Rose Richeson.
"Those individuals targeted for immigration enforcement in Alaska had prior convictions for forgery, fraud and assault," Richeson said. They were from Western Samoa, Philippines, Laos and Mexico, she said.
She said the agency could not provide more detailed information on the individuals, including their names, despite the criminal convictions.
