23 undocumented immigrants arrested in Iowa, 86 total in Midwest

Twenty-three undocumented immigrants were arrested in Iowa last week as part of a federal targeted enforcement operation, according to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement news release Thursday.

The 23 in Iowa were part of 86 immigrants arrested in the Midwest, as the three-day ICE operation also covered Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska. The operation ended March 9, according to the ICE news release.

Fifty-two of the 86 arrested had prior criminal convictions, ICE said, while the remaining appear to have been arrested solely on their immigration status.
