Feds Arrest 280 Immigrants, Including 36 in Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say they have arrested 280 convicted criminals for deportation in six Midwest states, including Kansas, during a monthlong enforcement surge.  The Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a news release Wednesday that of those arrested, 35 men and one woman were found in Kansas. Thirty of the immigrants came from Mexico, and six came from Guatemala.  The agency says the immigrants arrested fall within its priorities for deportation. They had previous convictions for armed robbery, drug trafficking, drunken driving and other crimes.  Most of the arrests were made in Wichita and Garden City. Some also occurred in Cimmaron, Dodge City, Liberal, Newton, Syracuse and Ulysses.  ICE says its enforcement initiative began May 18 and ended Saturday.
