ICE officials announced the results of a seven day cross check informant operation on Tuesday.
The operation lasted seven days in the month of May and was the largest of its kind. Officials say they arrested almost 3,000 convicted criminal aliens and fugitives across the nation. Twenty two of the arrested were here in the Valley with most having prior convictions like drug trafficking, aggravated assault and sexual crimes against minors. In total, the operation has removed more than 100,000 criminal aliens from the U.S. this year alone.
