Illegal Alien Sweep Nets 20 in U.P.

20 illegal aliens arrested in separate cases last week across the U.P. are soon going to be out of the country.

U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement officials say 7 of them were arrested in Kingsford last Wednesday.

The 20 people came from 9 different countries, including Mexico, China, Italy and Sweden.

There’s no word about where the 7 people arrested in Kingsford may have come from.

Some of the illegals are being held in the Chippewa County Jail in the Soo.

Others have been released on order of supervision, but they’re all going to be deported.

ICE officials say all 20 of the illegals are considered fugitive aliens because they’d all been warned at least once already to leave the country.
