Big arrest in San Diego County

Authorities arrested 31 people, including several illegal immigrants, in a countywide, anti-gang operation last week, according an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman.

Of the 31 individuals arrested during the operation, 22 were members or associates of gangs based in San Diego, Vista, Escondido and San Marcos, said ICE spokeswoman Lauren Mack. Of the 22 gang members, 10 will be prosecuted on various criminal charges and the rest are scheduled to be deported, Mack said.

The remaining nine individuals, who are not documented gang members, were taken into custody because they were suspected in various crimes or have immigration violations, Mack said.

Among the people arrested, four were U.S. citizens and the rest were foreigners from Mexico, Iraq, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.
