Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers last week swept up 650 illegal immigrants, a fifth of whom had criminal records and nearly a third of whom were part of the wave of unaccompanied minors, authorities said Tuesday.

The four-day sweep was the second phase of Operation Border Guardian/Border Resolve, launched last year focusing on the unaccompanied minor surge at the Mexican-American border that began in summer 2014.

Officials said all of the people targeted last week have final orders of deportation, with no pending appeals in immigration courts. ICE arrested 120 youths who had entered illegally and an additional 73 adults who had traveled with children — people the government describes as “family units.”    :snip:
