Immigration gang sweep results in hundreds of arrests

CINDY CARCAMO (THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER) | April 26, 2012

Three men from Orange County were among 637 suspected gang members and associates arrested for criminal and immigration violations during a multi-agency operation that spanned across the United States and Honduras, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials announced Thursday.

Project Nefarious launched February 2012, targeting transnational gangs involved with human smuggling and trafficking organizations. After months of gathering intelligence, the enforcement operations began April 9 and culminated on Saturday, ICE officials reported.

“The goal of Project Nefarious was to identify, locate, arrest, prosecute and remove gang members and associates affiliated with human smuggling and trafficking organizations,” ICE Homeland Security Investigations Executive Associate Director James Dinkins said in a written statement. “By ridding our streets of 637 gang members and associates, we are putting a dent in the violence, these transnational criminal street gangs bring to our communities.”

Immigration officials arrested 132 suspected gang members and associates in the Los Angeles area, including the three Orange County men who are suspected of immigration violations.
