WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A nationwide enforcement operation targeting criminal immigrants has rounded up eight people in Kansas and more than 2,900 convicted illegal immigrants across the country, including arrests in KMAN’s listening area.
Arrests were made in Manhattan, Junction City, Kansas City, Lenexa, Overland Park, and Topeka. Two arrests were made in Manhattan and one in Junction city. All three were Mexican males. Names were not available due to privacy and legal factors.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Wednesday the “Cross Check” operation included the arrest of a 31-year-old Ethiopian national in Shawnee who was convicted of sexual battery.
The eight men arrested in Kansas included six Mexicans, one Cambodian and one Ethiopian.
